All of Sonal’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Sonal’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

College Counseling

As a former graduate student and university instructor, I am able to offer students a number of services. I have extensive experience editing and assisting students in revision of their personal statements, application essays, and writing samples for graduate school and college applications.

In addition, I possess expert knowledge of strategies for student success in college and graduate school. I am extremely familiar with campus resources typically available to students, and can offer advice on research methods, research tools, organization, and coursework in many subjects.

Government & Politics

I worked for many years teaching government and political science courses at the university level, and can assist students in a variety of specialized subjects. I can help students who are in high school, as well as those in college/university undergraduate programs.

I truly enjoyed studying government and politics, and would love the opportunity to pass along what I've learned, as well as study strategies, to students requiring assistance.

Public Speaking

When I was younger, I struggled with public speaking, and indeed often was too hesitant to even speak during my classes. With the progression of my education and my need to lecture in college-level courses, I have over time developed strategies to overcome my fear, as well as sharpen my skills in public speaking. I am eager to help share my experience and tactics with others.

Social Studies

I have multiple years of experience in studying and teaching social sciences. I studied Political Economy as an undergraduate (including courses in political science, economics, and history), and have an MS in International Relations Research. I studied political science (international relations, comparative politics, and quantitative and qualitative research methods for social science) in a top-10 Ph.D. program. I acted as a teaching assistant and professor for multiple courses in the political science program. Finally, as an instructor for a UCSD writing program (The Making of the Modern World), I assisted students in studies of world history from the ancient world to the modern period.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
