About Michael

Need help with your CJ studies? Want someone to help you understand your History class? Require assistance getting through the police academy? Need somebody to proofread your paper? Wish you could improve your PowerPoint skills? I can help!

I have over fifteen years of experience in training and education. My bachelor’s degree is in History from Texas A&M University and my master’s degree from Lamar University is in Applied Criminology (Criminal Justice). Additionally, I have spent the past eleven years as a law enforcement training instructor and coordinator. I’m a state certified police instructor and have taught numerous topics to thousands of students. I’ve also been an instructor in a local 2-year college Criminal Justice program. I currently work as a training developer for the FBI ... I know what I'm doing!

My teaching/tutoring philosophy is simple; I help the student discover different and better ways to learn the material than simply trying to read and memorize it! I show you ways to organize the material to make it easier to comprehend. I relate the material to things you already know, and show the relationships that are sometimes hard to discern. Being a developer of curriculum and exams, I can show you the sometimes hidden logic in test questions and help increase the probability of getting a correct answer even if you just guess.

I don’t quit until I see that light bulb turn on above your head!

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.

American History

I am a life-long history fanatic! My bachelor's degree was in history with a special emphasis on 20th century military history. Since then, I have continued to study history as a passion and pastime. I have read extensively on historical topics and biographies, especially with regard to U.S. and Texas history. I am currently compiling leadership lessons from Civil War military and political leaders for use in my current civilian profession. I have tutored students in history and gotten excellent reviews, likely due to my ability to place the historical information into context they can understand and appreciate.

Criminal Justice

I have a master of science degree in applied criminology and twenty years of experience working in law enforcement. Additionally, I have been a certified police instructor since 1995 and am currently a college adjunct criminal justice instructor.

Geography

In addition to my formal education which included multiple courses in both political and cultural geography, I have received extensive training in both topics through my position as a military intelligence agent in the U.S. Army Reserve. Geography is crucial to developing an understanding of the "human terrain" and being able to operate successfully in collecting intelligence.

Government & Politics

I am currently a training developer for the FBI's Leadership Development Program, which requires an extensive understanding of both how government functions as well as the political dimension surrounding it. I have taught extensively at the professional law enforcement academy level on the police role in federal, state, and local government. I also maintain a blog on geo-political issues.
