Former Associate Professor at USAF Academy

As a former Associate Professor of Middle East History at the United States Air Force Academy, I had the privilege of teaching thousands of cadets in World, Middle East, and Military History. I graduated from the Air Force Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree and a major in International Affairs. I was on the Dean's List for seven of eight semesters. Prior to that I attended the Air Force Academy Prep School and increased my English and Math SAT scores by over 100 points. I can assist yo... [more]

Study Skills

I have successfully tutored students for the SAT and ACT. More importantly, I was one of the founders of the How-to-Study program at the US Air Force Academy back in 1980. Many of the tips developed then are still being used at the Academy today. Over the course of 30 years of working at the Academy, both in and out of the classroom, I have tutored hundreds of cadets on how to study. Most recently, I volunteered at the Academy in its writing center.

College Counseling

I was the Deputy Director of Admissions at the USAF Academy and have helped hundreds of students to apply to the Academy and other colleges. I have also counseled hundreds of students in how-to-study programs and humanities and social science subjects. I have provided career counseling to hundreds of subordinates who have worked for me over my 28-year AF career.


I have successfully assisted numerous students in preparing for the ACT and SAT including those applying to attend the USAF Academy. I spent 28 years in the Air Force and am very familiar with the materials on the AFOQT and ASVAB tests--both of which are much easier than the SAT and ACT. I have also worked at the Air Force Academy in and out of the classroom for over 2o years. I am more than qualified to assist students on both of these tests.

American History



I am an excellent writer and teacher. I was the speech writer for a four star general. I authored all his speeches and published articles. I have graded thousands of papers while teaching history and English at the USAF Academy. Plus I have authored numerous articles while teaching. After retiring from the Air Force, I was the Vice President of Communications for the Air Force Academy's Association of Graduates. I authored and edited articles for our alumni magazine for eight years.
