60 hrs colleige (Sociology)
I am Quentin R. For twenty-five years I worked in the Land Surveying profession. During that time I worked on a Land Surveying field party, as a Rodman, Chainman, Insterment Man and field crew Party Chief. As a Party Chief it was my responsibility to direct the survey recording horizontal and vertical measurements and making a map of the land being surveyed. My responsibility as well was teaching all field party members basic land surveying, it became a daily routine. On any given day a field party member may have to operate the surveying instrument or be Party Chief for the day. All field party members who worked with me were well versed in Land Surveying methodology.
I worked for Pepsi Cola and Dr. Pepper bottling companies delivering beverages, was a retail store manager and worked in a group home for the mentally challenged teaching them everyday life skills; proper dress for weather conditions, personnel grooming (men and women both), personnel hygiene, safe food preparation, table manners and a host of other skills. All of that with one goal in mind that the individual person could live on their own with limited supervision. During my tenure in the home one young man and one lady were able to leave the group home and live independently. It was an exhilarating experience teaching others, one I wish to continue by making myself available as a tutor.
My personal goal is to help young men and women prepare for college. A tutor not only teaches the subject at hand they listen to the student offering the tutor's personal insight and advice on the student's college major and suggesting which minors would go well with the students major. I have sixty hours of college with a GPA of 3.64. During the academic year of 1991-1992 based on the evaluation of Weatherford College faculty I was recognized as the outstanding student in Sociology. It is my hope you will allow me to be your tutor.
Sociology was my college major, anthropology was my minor. It was my intent, had I been able to finish college, to do a double major in Sociology and Anthropology with a double minor in Archaeology and World History.
From an early age I had a passion to answer the questions, where do we come from, why do we act the way we do toward one another, at what point do we stop being wandering goat herders and become civilized? What is civilization? When did civilization begin, five-thousand years ago? Was there organized civilization in 15,000 BCE? Anthropology, Archaeology, Sociology and World History in there somewhere lies the answer. So I went to college and took these subjects. Now let me pass on to you what I learned in and out of college. Pursuing these subjects is a wondrous journey out of the past into the present ever going forward into the future. Let us go together and learn together as well.
No one should ever ignore history. It is the foundation of society, what we build on. We cannot build without a solid foundation. Studying history is a study of ourselves, then there is geography. You cannot benefit from history if you do not know where you are on the planet; what took place in 1715CE at such and such a place. If you do not know where such and such a place is, the history of it has no meaning. Study history, study geography you won't go wrong.
I'm here, where are you? What do you think can I be your tutor? I am eager and ready to be of help in your studies, understand and enjoy Sociology, Anthropology, Geography, History, bring your grades up and help a bit with math. Also, to be noted, write and give a speech, write up term papers and use proper speech.
So contact me, let's get together, let's learn together. You'll be glad you did.

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.
