Thank you for your interest in having me become your tutor. I live in Frisco, TX and enjoy working with high school and college students.

Recently, I have assisted students gaining admission to institutions like Vanderbilt, Johns Hopkins, Washington University in St. Louis, New York University, UT Austin, Ohio State University, and others. Working with you to reach your goals is a satisfying component of my work.

As an instructor at the college level for several years, I have developed a deep appreciation and knowledge about government and politics.

From the basic understanding of "who gets what, when and how" to more complex terms that define global politics, I can work to create an understanding of subject matter related to American and International Politics.

While navigating the graduate course work for a MA and PhD program I have become a proficient writer. Teaching has provided me the opportunity to provide reading and writing feedback and instruction for my students.

Reading

As a college level instructor of Government for over 5 years, I assign significant reading to my students. Leading the class and providing instruction requires that I have a strong command of all material. Additionally, I navigate coursework for a Master's and PhD. This process increased my capacity to read, comprehend and teach.

Through four years of undergraduate work and several years of graduate level studies I have developed a keen ability to write creatively and for informational purposes. As an instructor with writing based courses, assigning tasks and grading written assignments has charged me with developing writing rubrics. I have also instructed students with tips to use proper grammar and appropriate word choices with their writing. These skills will lead to success for the writing students I tutor.

Very helpful tutor - easy to reach by phone/email/text

Mr. D met with my high school senior to discuss applications for college. He discussed ideas for essay topics with her and reviewed her resume. He was extremely helpful in giving her feedback on her AP English assignments one evening, even though it was at the very last minute. He replied even though it was 8:30 pm at night. He also responded promptly to help proofread her college application essays before she sent them out to schools. Very helpful suggestions, and always follows through on time. Mr. D is very personable and professional. I recommend him highly.
