I specialize in different areas due to my varied interests. I have worked as an AP U.S. History instructor and TOFEL tutor. I also worked as an English writing instructor at China's top university, Peking University. I have an MA in International Relations from The American University in Cairo where I wrote my thesis on Qatari policies and Gulf dynamics. In my undergrad at Baylor, I triple-majored in English, Philosophy and Political Science graduating in four years in two programs within the Honors college. I wrote my thesis on Frederick Douglass and have a solid grasp on American literature, particularly the transcendentalists, the Civil war era, and then later, 20th century American poetry, Frost, Stevens, Ashbery and Stein particularly. I also attended a summer program at the China University for Political Science and Law and can help you understand not only international legal issues but also there political and economic ramifications.
I can see things from different perspectives having lived in three countries outside the U.S., Egypt, China and Colombia. I am currently working on the LSAT and have consistently scored in the high 160s, although not yet on an LSAC-administered exam. I will help you learn, succeed and stand-out in any of these areas with my hard work and hyper-specific advice. Hope to connect with you soon.
I have an MA in Political Science from the American University in Cairo where I specialized in International Relations. At Baylor University I majored in Political Science and was named an Outstanding Political Science Student my senior year.
I served as the HS Principal of an international school in Bogota, Colombia which allows me to make presentations in front of a variety of audiences on a daily basis. Also, I have taught age groups ranging from 4 year olds to adults and know how to hold the attention of an audience. I have also studied particular speaking techniques from Dale Carnegie and Andy Andrews through their books and recordings.
I ran track and cross at Baylor University for three years, one of the top Division programs in the country. In two of those years we finished ranked in the top-ten in indoor track and in the top twenty-five in outdoor track. I completed in a variety of mid-distance races and in championship level events in the Big XII. I also was an accomplished state runner in TN, winning the state championship in 4x800 meter relay my junior year.
