George Mason University (Government)
Hello! My name is Michael and education is my passion. Let me quickly tell you about my experience: I studied Government & International Politics, with a concentration in Comparative & International Politics, at George Mason University's Honors College and graduated after three years in 2015. I now work at as a Teaching Assistant at New Horizons Regional Education Centers in Newport News, Virginia, and intend to acquire my teaching certification in the near future.
Along with my current occupation, I have also served as a Peer Research Mentor at GMU's Honors College, where I assisted first-term students with the planning, research, and writing of their first major research assignment. In addition, I spent my senior year working at a lobbying firm in Washington, D.C., where I acquired first-hand political and government experience.
I am available to help you or your child improve their grades and test scores in a variety of classes, particularly AP classes. Read on or send me a message for more information!
I enjoy helping others better understand the world - I'm the guy my friends call when there's something in the news, law, or history they want to know more about in terms they can understand (as opposed to dry textbooks or articles). I try to make the subjects I teach not simply clear, but interesting. Of course, I understand that everyone learns differently and I will be flexible with each student to meet their needs.
Along with a personal approach refined through teaching and other career experience, I have a number of academic achievements that demonstrate my understanding of the material and ability to improve the grades and test scores of my students. In high school, I received a National AP Scholar award after taking a total of nine AP classes and receiving a 5 in five exams and a 4 in three of them (that last one was a 3 in AP Statistics - I subject I am not offering assistance with, sorry!). I also received the highest SAT scores in my senior class and received a 750 on the U.S. History SAT Subject Test, along with a 670 on the Literature test. In college, along with previously mentioned experiences, I was accepted into the Global Politics Fellows program in recognition of my academic achievement.
I'm here to make social studies, English and writing comprehensible (and perhaps even interesting) to those who struggle with it, in particular when it comes to AP classes and exams. I can also provide in-depth writing assistance, including essay formatting, research, grammar, and editing. If you are interested, or need more information, send me a message and I will get back to you within 24 hours. Hello! My name is Michael and education is my passion.

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.
I received an undergraduate degree in Government & International politics from George Mason University, and graduated from its Honors College. I also worked throughout my senior year as an Intern and then Associate for a lobbying firm based in Washington, D.C. that serves clients in a variety of fields, including green energy, higher education and domestic shipbuilding. At GMU, I was accepted into the Global Politics Fellows, a fellowship program restricted to high-achieving students studying global politics. I also received a 5 on the AP US Government and Politics test and a 750 on the SAT U.S. History Subject Test.
