About Michael

I am a certified teacher in the West Virginia Department of Education, mercer County Board of Education, and have been a college professor and assistant dean for decades. On the collegiate level, I have taught courses in multiple sub fields of psychology and sociology, cultural anthropology, and speech/debate. I received the outstanding teacher of the year by vote of the students for four years and won the NISOD excellence award in 2012.

I am a devout believer in Rogerian approaches to pedagogy and counseling. I am a recipient of the Hopkins Share Award of Harvard by vote of the faculty of Harvard University. I refuse to meet alone with minor students and require parental accompaniment in all sessions. I do not discriminate based on race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, or national origin.

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.

Anthropology

I have taught Anthropology and Cultural Anthropology in college for ten years. My courses were approved by Northcentral and credits were given to my students. I have lectured on both anthropological methodologies and their relation to archeological methodologies. I have conducted cross cultural exchange studies on the collegiate level for more than ten years. I hold academic credits in comparative religious studies and their cultural impacts. I have completed courses in cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, a study of the classics in Ancient Greece and their contributions to today's field of anthropology, and have done extensive research in Applachian anthropology, including serpent handlers and their views of faith and mortality.
