Hi and welcome to my profile. My name is Heather. I am a recent graduate of the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh with an MA in international affairs focusing on human rights policy. I am well-versed in history, government structures, and global politics.
My teaching style focuses on critical thinking skills. I want students to understand that this is not just about memorization of dates, places, and amendments, but the events and structures that have shaped our world. I try keep material interesting through story telling and finding ways the student can relate. I use metaphor or examples to explain foreign concepts.
I taught computer skills and sales techniques professionally prior to my graduate education. I also have experience in tech support. I have a customer service attitude and tremendous patience.
