I am a published journalist, writer, and graduate of the University of St. Andrews (Scotland) and Durham University (England), with honors in International Relations and Middle Eastern Studies. I have led M.A. level courses at my previous university. My strong faculties in writing have been further enhanced through rigorous practice and scholarship in both the public and private sphere, in presentation and in policy analysis. I am a confident teacher. I stress fundamentals of writing and teach students to "read" like a scholar. My students range from undergraduates at universities in the United States / Canada / United Kingdom (which I conduct via Skype) and high-school aged pupils.
My teaching philosophy is founded on the development of natural aptitudes in reading and writing, working individually with each student to enhance strengths and augment weaknesses. My mission in education is to teach how to learn. The life of the mind is an exciting one, and in any setting, writing faculties are respected as great merit and virtue. I also possess a depth and breadth of knowledge on a variety of subjects, from international politics to 19th century poetry, from finance and forex trading to philosophy. If you're keen to learn something, chances are I already know something about it, but I'll go further and learn more about it!
