TEACHING/ TUTORING APPROACH:
I view teaching as a calling, rather than a job. Needless to say, I am very passionate about teaching and helping students improve. I take an individualized approach to each student. That is, I try to figure out what works best for them. I believe in focusing on developing lasting understanding of concepts involved, rather than memorizing. I believe that knowing WHY something is the case makes a subject a lot easier (not to mention more fun).
Currently I am a PhD student at one of the best Political Science programs in the country (top 10), and SAT and GRE teacher for the Princeton Review. Before that I earned a Masters (in Political Science as well) from Northeastern University with a perfect 4.0 GPA. During my undergraduate studies I also studied Communication Studies, International Studies, and Russian Studies. Furthermore, I was a member of speech and debate team and was a recipient of speech and debate scholarship two years in the row.
I am a PhD student in Political Science. I have MA in Political Science from Northeastern University (earned a 4.0). Political Science was also one of my majors during my undergraduate studies.
I was a member of a speech and debate team in college for 3 years. For the last two I was a recipient of a speech and debate scholarship. Additionally, I held multiple leadership positions that required utilization of public speaking skills on a regular basis. Furthermore, one of my majors during my undergraduate studies was Communication Studies.
I have about a year and a half of professional interpreting experience from English to Russian. I also minored in Russian during my undergraduate career and received a certificate in Translation Studies (concentrating in Russian). I am also a native speaker.
Took numerous courses in statistics and research methods at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Received an "A" on all stats courses and exams.
Study skills will have a profound impact on your academic success. I have spent years learning and researching how to improve my study skills. The results were evident, as I have recently earned a Master's degree with a perfect 4.0 GPA. Investing in your study skills is worthwhile, as it will improve your potential success in any discipline you choose to study.
