Let's face it, Government classes can be boring, BUT NOT WITH ME. Not only will you learn all about the US government and the US Constitution, but I promise you will laugh in my class more than any other Social Studies class before. After teaching for 15 years across the US and internationally, I have found that not only can teaching be informative, but through humor and laughter, students tend to retain more as it connects them with a happy memory, something everyone could use more of. So join me and learn all about how the government of the US works, find out what rights you have under the US Constitution, and pull the veil back on the Electoral College system. It's never too late to learn!

After discussing the class specifics before the first meeting, I would like to work examples from your text and discuss the concept details as we go. Pace and content will adjust from there by incorporating student feedback. The goal is to create the best study environment for each student.

From studying the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights from top to bottom, to interpreting the Declaration of Independence and Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address inside-out, to understanding the true significance of democracy through and through, grasping the basic principles of how American government operates is essential to realizing the backbone of American operations on the national federal level from behind closed doors and how decision making affects citizens in everyday life and society to follow. I can help you understand how bills and legislation are proposed, voted on, and ultimately approved (if they are so lucky). I will assist you in dissecting the three branches of government and the political positions that comprise each of them. I shall further your comprehension of how the members of the different chambers (attempt to) work together to bring America forward from the inside-out and how everybody therein (seemingly) tries to play their parts to perfection in order to make progress of any nature and stature. Upon thoroughly studying the electoral college and its Constitutional powers, I will elect to enhance your awareness of the importance of casting your ballots each and every election cycle no matter how old you are, what calendar year it is, what offices are up for (re-)election and which propositions are on the verge of passing or failing both on paper and ultimately at the hands of the government, or ultimately who and what you are voting for--as long as you vote. Upon learning about the ascension of certain individuals presiding over the federal government to the Presidency per their Constitutional appointments should the standing president and vice-president no longer be at the helm of all operations from the top down in the White House, the value of local government politicians therefore comes into play most eloquently and effectively accordingly. So put on your thinking caps, sharpen your pencils to punch your voter registration packet at the polls, and get ready for a ride on the wave of gaining further knowledge behind the wheelings and dealings constituting the brain, heart, and soul of what makes the United States of America the country that it chooses to be at the hands of the leaders taking charge of it all under the auspices of the politically active American citizens who vote them and their corresponding statutes into and out of office right and left cyclically.
