About Ross

I am a graduate student in Arlington, Virginia with a wealth of gained from extensive international travel. With degrees in International Affairs, Political Science, and Public Policy I have experience with subjects ranging from politics, government, and history to micro & macro economics, world cultures. Additionally, my work as a database technician has granted me a great deal of experience with budgeting, information science, and computer hardware.

Learning should be a life-long passion. Too often we get bogged down in the mundane details. By focusing on the exciting and salient details I can make sure you not only remember what you need to learn but also understand why you need to know it.

History is most interesting story ever told. So, why is it so often boiled down to dates and numbers? The events are what's important. With my interdisciplinary background, you'll learn how it all relates, instead of struggling to remember what happened in 1066 A.D.

I'm a freelance contractor, which means my schedule is flexible so you don't need to be. Send me a message and let me know what you need to learn. I'll make sure you'll get there.

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.

American History

I am a graduate student at George Mason University with one semester left until I finish my Master's of Public Policy. As a result, I have a superb understanding of civics, history of government, and how they all interrelate. I take a relational approach to history, eschewing reliance on dates in favor of understanding the significant effects past events have had on the present day.

Government & Politics

I am a Master's of Public Policy student and former Vice President of a policy research group.

Microsoft Excel

I worked for one year as a database manager, using Excel to develop reports for roughly 50,000 records. I have organized data for Political campaigns and small businesses using Excel. I am well versed in all excel functions save for visual basic.

Political Science

I have a Bachelor's degree in Political Science, a Bachelor's degree in International Affairs, and one semester left until my Master's of Public Policy is finished. I have multiple published works on various political science topics. I have educated a university level academic club on various international politics topics.

SAT Reading

I scored 730 on my SAT for Reading in 2007 and since then I have had numerous articles published in various publications.

World History

As a former head of education for a university international relations program as well as a decade of expatriate experience, I can blend formal study with examples of real world effects of historical events.
