I have lived in the United States since 2000. I have a double major in Politics & History
, with a minor in philosophy
from the University of London. I also have a diploma in Accounting
A bit about myself. I am 42 years old and prior to moving to the USA I lived in over 20 countries and visited a few more. The regions that I have resided in are Europe, Northern Africa, Mid-East, South Asia, the Far East, and New Zealand (where I was prior to moving to the USA). Within the United States I have lived in New York City, Florida, California, and here in Illinois.
My passions (as it were) are politics, sociology
, and history, with geography
thrown into the mix. At University the course structure that I did was very popular. For 80 spaces there were over 200 applicants, so there was an interview process. When I was asked why I wanted to study this course, I stated that I wanted to learn how politicians operate - meaning that politics is all action and politicians use history to justify their actions and then use philosophy to make their actions all warm and fuzzy. I guess the interviewing professors really liked the answer as I was chosen to be one of the lucky 80 students.
I want to assure parents that I am a very patient tutor who really enjoys teaching people about world geography, sociology, and history, without making them feel unintelligent. My method is simple. I use a globe or world map to discuss not only geography but history and politics. Another subject I love to teach is my native language
I make my sessions a fun experience, and not a "mom/dad do I REALLY have to do this?" session. I did some tutoring while at a Summer Camp in 1990 (when I was a University student) in upstate New York. History is a wonderful subject - as the saying goes "how do know where you are going if you do not know where you have come from?"
