About David


Bio

While I love research, my favorite part about my graduate studies is getting the chance to teach students in a small-group setting. I most enjoy seeing students develop a passion for the material and see their work pay off as their skills improve. Both in my group teaching and tutoring, I emphasize flexibility and one-on-one support. Each student is different with different needs.

While I love research, my favorite part about my graduate studies is getting the chance to teach students in a small-group setting. I most enjoy seeing students develop a passion for the material and see their work pay off as their skills improve. Both in my group teaching and tutoring, I emphasize flexibility and one-on-one support. Each student is different with different needs.

As part of my graduate studies, I served as an assistant to professors in three different courses. In my role, I led three small-group classes of 10-15 students each semester, where I was responsible for reviewing class materials and, most importantly, answering questions and concerns that the students had and couldn't bring up in a large-class lecture format. I have thoroughly enjoyed and learned from these experiences. My student reviews are excellent, and commonly refer to my ability to make the subject relatable, communicate material clearly, and give personalized attention to each student.

My undergraduate degree was in both Political Science and Economics, after which I earned a Master's degree in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am currently in the fourth year of a Political Science PhD with a minor in Religious Studies. While my current specialty is in religion and politics, I have also worked on large projects involving international banking, conflict resolution, and also an experiment on natural resource management.

I learned Spanish through university study and two years living in Bogota, Colombia during my undergraduate, where I used the language every day. I love teaching foreign languages because, like political science, they are a widely and immediately applicable skill. I am happy to teach Spanish as a foreign language as well as to teach social science topics in the Spanish language.

Your success is my success, and I commit to getting you to your goals. I look forward to hearing from you!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

David clearly understands academic writing and helped me to understand the aspects of writing research articles that weren't clear. He is invested, enthused, and ready to help immediately!

Rhonda, 2 lessons with David

Very knowledgement and patient

I have been struggling with proofreading and APA with my dissertation and when I met David; he took the time to listen to me and show me where I could do better. From the first lesson, I knew he knew his stuff when he just didn't fix it for me but scheduled some time so that he can actually show me and teach me how to do it better. He is definitely the right match for me. Easy to communicate with and always on time. Thank you David Melanie

Great to work with Tutor

David did a great job working with my son on his paper. One of the most helpful parts was reviewing a previous paper to give guidelines of how to start the next one. Appreciated him answering in a timely manner a lot of our questions. Definitely a great resource to use.

David is amazing

David helped me restructure my paper and reviewed my final draft.. I am not being melodramatic when I say that he saved my paper. I am so grateful to have him.

David is amazing

David helped me structure my paper and create and outline that allowed me to start writing. David was knowledgeable patient and kind. Before our session, I had a difficult time starting the project. David allowed me to get started and feel confident that I could complete the task. I am now in weekly sessions with him and am happy to say I am no longer worried about completing the assignments he helped me start.

Oustanding Political Science Tutor

David is well versed in both the current literature surrounding international relations, as well as more foundational theories. As someone who doesn't have a background in IR, his knowledge has been exceptionally helpful in my attempts to lay a solid groundwork.
