A bit about myself: I am a writer, part-time professor in the sociology and anthropology department at Rutgers University Newark, a and founding and managing editor of the nomadic sojourns creative collective with bases in Oakland, California, and Brooklyn, New York. I am currently a Media and Communications doctoral candidate at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland, and a personal editor for a number of professors that teach at N.Y.U. and Rutgers University. I obtained my B.A. in political science from U.C. Davis and my M.A. in international affairs and anthropology from The New School in New York.
I taught English as a Second Language to students in Lesotho, Southern Africa during my two year term as a Secondary Education Peace Corps volunteer as well as to students in Costa Rica. Prior to my term as a volunteer, I tutored children (K-high school) in Monterey, California, in topics ranging from basic reading skills to writing essays to calculus.
Starting in January of 2013, I began teaching as a professor in the sociology and anthropology department at Rutgers University Newark and have taught two sociology courses, one of which is a completely online-based course. I have extensive experience using Skype for business-related calls and would feel completely comfortable tutoring through that medium. I have presented my research at conferences in New York, South Africa, and the U.K.
My tutoring philosophy: work hard, have fun, build long-lasting professional relationships and take great satisfaction in watching learners improve.
Thank you very much and I look forward to the possibility of working with you!
