About Dale


Bio

I have a very diverse background as a former US diplomat who served around the world then ran my own stock market business. A few years ago, I embarked on a third career as a tutor and adjunct faculty member in international relations and international business for an online university in Arlington. Then I joined a tutoring center for SAT/ACT prep and finally moved to a private school in Tysons in 2018 teaching Geography, International Relations, and French.

I have a very diverse background as a former US diplomat who served around the world then ran my own stock market business. A few years ago, I embarked on a third career as a tutor and adjunct faculty member in international relations and international business for an online university in Arlington. Then I joined a tutoring center for SAT/ACT prep and finally moved to a private school in Tysons in 2018 teaching Geography, International Relations, and French.

My academic background included extensive courses in history and political science. I also love languages; I am State Department-certified in French and Croatian.

History was an integral part of my international relations training at the undergraduate and graduate levels. My strengths are European history and modern American history, particularly diplomatic history. I also have a strong background in political science and comparative politics.

I am certified in the Reading/Writing/Essay sections of the new SAT and ACT. I have also worked successfully with TOEFL students.

I look forward to helping students who want to learn more about the world around them.

Very knowledgeable and helpful

I needed some last-minute help for my Ap Human Geography exam and Dale explained many historical and economical models I was struggling with very well. He also taught me some test-taking strategies for AP exams and I understood my content much better after classes with him.
