Hello everyone, my name is Claire J and I am a 22-year-old female tutor who is passionate about the humanities! I have had 1-2 years of experience tutoring, but have recently graduated college with dual BA degrees in Political Science and History with an emphasis on pre-law and am hoping to become a full-time tutor, as education is my biggest love. The students I have tutored are primarily in lower-level college courses, though I have had experience tutoring high school students and coaching junior high students in sports.

My journey into tutoring began by a friend suggesting that this may be a good way for me to help inspire and teach others, which is a primary part of the way I live my life. After my original tutoring experience, I began to primarily work with college students who were in my classes and those that were also in my political science major at California State University, Fullerton. In summary, my tutoring experience includes subjects such as government, law, world politics, legal history, writing, and more.

I am currently in the process of applying for law school after graduating with dual degrees and summa cum laude honors (3.9 or above). Through my experiences at the University, which included multiple honorary awards for my writing and public speaking skills pertaining to law, I also had to learn to build intellectual confidence in myself. This has been a very significant part of why I am interested in tutoring, as I have seen the impact that feeling capable can have on others. These subjects are difficult at any level-- but students are more than able to accomplish any goals they can set their mind to with the right guidance. Accordingly, it has become my goal to help those that I tutor feel confident in their abilities and excited about the subjects that they are learning about.

I am an outstanding English tutor because I am very passionate about the subject. In addition, I have a variety of experiences that have helped me to excel at this subject, including the completion of three r

Hello! I am an experienced public speaking tutor and coach. I have competed nationally in college-level moot court (legal debate) competitions, which required winning a series of intermediate competitions to receive a "bid." Further, I have earned individual speaking awards (6th and 15th) placing me in the top 100 moot court competitors overall.

History

American History,

American History

Throughout college, I worked on obtaining a degree in History. Within my major, I consistently focused on American History. This includes understanding how the entire country changed from the time of the colonies to today, in addition to how our political history was shaped by our interactions with the rest of the world.
Government & Politics,

Government & Politics

Throughout college, I primarily took history and political science courses related to law and how it was developed versus how it continues to function. I have had extensive practice with understanding the Supreme Court, Presidency and Congress, submitting for thesis review papers related to the power of the veto in relation to the behavior of Congress, the 5th, 6th, 14th, 8th, and 1st Amendments, the War Powers resolution, and more.
Social Studies,

Social Studies

I am a dual B.A. graduate with focuses on Political Science and History. Specifically, I have spent considerable time understanding how these two concepts interact, in other words, how laws and social norms impact our daily lives and how they have in the past. This is a central component of social studies and I can confidently assist students with all aspects of the material.

Psychology,

Psychology

My specific interactions with psychology include its influence on political motivation and criminology in obtaining my B.A. in political science. This combination has allowed me to dive deep into the realm of psychology in order to better approach an understanding of how the law should function and the resulting consequences of systemic issues. I have done research on the psychological factors that motivate political behavior, as well as the long term impacts that laws may have on children, such as the 6th Amendment's confrontation clause.
