About Sydney

I have been a student of government and politics since middle school. I have worked on Capitol Hill, including three years working for the Speaker of the US House, I worked on a number of political campaigns and have completed coursework toward a doctoral degree in political science. I have a unique ability to convey complex concepts in simple, digestible bits of information that are much easier to understand. I come from a family of "informal" teachers, as the son and grandson of Sunday School teachers, and have years of experience as a mentor. I am passionate about my discipline and try to impart some of that passion in others I encounter. I have been a student of government and politics since middle school.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Piano

I have over 25 years of experience playing piano, including a combined ten years of classical music training and experience training beginner students and coaching advanced students. I am more than qualified to teach up to the intermediate level, and advanced, depending on the direction a student may wish to take with their genre and style.

Political Science

I am working on a Ph.D. in political science and have more than 10 years experience in government and politics.

Public Speaking

I have served in a number of leadership roles since childhood that required me to present myself in front of others. As a music director, I not only speak, but sing in front of others when I am teaching parts of choir. As president or officer of any organization I have served, I have often had to give reports in front of the larger body of our membership, with audiences up to over 100 people. Because of my various leadership work and success in various capacities, I have been sought after to speak at events and ceremonies. In my last job, public speaking to audiences as large as 200 was a regular function. Lastly, I have assisted in advising political candidates on the campaign trail.
