I am a self-motivated, dependable, and energetic individual who has extensive experience in both tutoring and coaching athletics. I am currently earning my PhD in War Studies from King's College London through a distance learning program. I have a Bachelor’s degree both in International Affairs and in Spanish Language, Literature, and Culture from Marquette University. Through Marquette’s Honors Program, I took advanced literature, philosophy, and history courses, all of which required strong research, writing, and analytical skills. I earned a Master’s degree in Public Policy from the College of William and Mary, through which I further developed my research, writing, and quantitative skills. In particular, I took courses in econometrics, quantitative methods, statistics, national security policy, and U.S. foreign policy. Concerning my prior teaching and tutoring experience, while attending Marquette University, I worked as a Spanish tutor for undergraduate intermediate Spanish courses, and I volunteered to tutor students in calculus, English, literature, writing, and political science. Moreover, while studying abroad in Madrid, Spain, I helped teach English to Spanish elementary students. As a research assistant at the College of William and Mary, I served as a Teacher’s Assistant for an undergraduate statistics course, creating homework and exam problems and grading the students’ work. While working in Kosovo, I led a debate skills training course for Kosovo youth in preparation for the Kosovo National Debate Competition. I was also the President of the Marquette University Debate Team. In regard to athletics, I have coached figure skating, both group and individual lessons, for over eight years. As a coach, I helped numerous students to achieve top placements at competitions and to receive passing marks on USFSA exams. Finally, I was the Captain of the Marquette University Wakeboard Team, and I have experience in distance running and snowboarding.

Chess

Chess is one of my favorite pastimes. I learned to play when I was seven and have been playing ever since. I have taught most of my family and friends how to play, and consequently, it has now become a staple game on game nights. I am able to teach the rules, offer advice on strategy, and serve as a challenging opponent.

English

I excelled at English courses throughout high school and college. I received a perfect score on the English portion of the ACT exam and was in the top percentile for the English section of the GRE exam. Due to my exemplary editing skills, I have provided editorial support to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the College of William and Mary, and the Center for Human Rights and the Environment.

European History

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree (Honors) in International Affairs, with a concentration in European Affairs, from Marquette University. I have taken several honors history courses that have focused on general European history. I have also taken classes focusing specifically on the French Revolution and Napoleon, the Spanish Civil War, and the history of Spain. I further developed my knowledge of European history while studying abroad in Madrid, Spain and traveling throughout Europe. Recently, I worked in Pristina, Kosovo, which provided me the opportunity to learn about the complicated history of the Balkans.

Government & Politics

I have a Master’s degree in Public Policy from the College of William and Mary and a Bachelor’s degree in International Affairs from Marquette University. Much of my academic career has been focused on government and politics. While at graduate school at the College of William and Mary, my courses included the Political Environment, Law and Public Policy, U.S. Public Diplomacy, and U.S. National Security Policy. My undergraduate government and politics courses included Public Policy in Industrial Democracies, International Organizations, World Conflict and Security, Comparative Politics, and International Politics. In addition to my college level courses, I also took AP Government and other honors government courses in high school. I have excelled at all of my government and politics courses and have helped tutor other individuals in these subjects.

Political Science

I have a Master’s degree in Public Policy from the College of William and Mary and a Bachelor’s degree in International Affairs from Marquette University.

In addition to my college level courses, I also took AP Government and other honors government courses in high school. I have excelled at all of my government and politics courses and have helped tutor other individuals in these subjects.

Public Speaking

I have an extensive background in public speaking. Throughout high school, I participated in forensics, mock trial, debate, and model UN. I was a co-captain of the mock trial team, and I competed at the State Forensics Competition every year. While completing my undergraduate degree at Marquette University, I was elected President of the Marquette University Debate Team, and I led the team to the National Parliamentary Debate Tournament in Colorado. Additionally, I was an active member of Marquette’s mock trial team. Most recently, I led a debate skills training course for Kosovo youth in preparation for the Kosovo National Debate Competition, and later, I was a judge at the Kosovo National Debate Competition.

Track & Field

I ran track & Field throughout Middle School and High School. I was a distance runner; therefore, I ran the 4X8 relay, 800, 1600, and 3200. I was All Conference and ran at the Wisconsin State Track Meet. I was also a cross country runner throughout Middle School and High school. Furthermore, I attended summer running camp in Marquette, Michigan for three years. I continue to run and have trained for marathons. I also help other individuals improve their running, with particular focus on distance running. I have significant experience in coaching athletics, as I was a figure skating coach for over eight years and the Captain of the Marquette University Wakeboard Team.

World History

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree (Honors) in International Affairs, with a concentration in European Affairs, from Marquette University. I have taken numerous history courses that have focused on world history, including Honors Western Civ. 1 and Honors Western Civ. 2. I have also taken several region specific classes, including courses focusing on Latin America, the Middle East, and Europe, as well as Spain, France, and Russia. I also studied abroad in Madrid, Spain, which allowed me the opportunity to further develop my world history and culture knowledge by traveling throughout Europe. As stated earlier, I worked in Argentina, which provided me the chance to travel throughout Latin America. Since history is a passion of mine, I always view traveling as an opportunity to expand my knowledge of the subject.
