Bio

Hi, I'm Branden and I am an undergraduate at the University of Southern California! I am a Political Science major and future law student. I am particularly interested in Political Science, History, Economics, and Philosophy. As a young student, I was never interested in academics. I went to school and passed my classes, but I was never the kid that would, for instance, pick up a book and read for fun. It is safe to say that I was not excited to learn.

Hi, I'm Branden and I am an undergraduate at the University of Southern California! I am a Political Science major and future law student. I am particularly interested in Political Science, History, Economics, and Philosophy. As a young student, I was never interested in academics. I went to school and passed my classes, but I was never the kid that would, for instance, pick up a book and read for fun. It is safe to say that I was not excited to learn. By my senior year of high school I began to take my studies more seriously and even then, I was only getting started. Fast forward to the present and you'll find few people who enjoy engaging in the process of learning more than me. I attribute my shift in interests to some great teachers who opened my eyes to how much I do not know about the world and as a result, I believe there to be few things more valuable than a good teacher. It has been said that the most essential quality of a good teacher is recognizing that the acquisition of knowledge is worthless without the wisdom to make sense of what it is that you are learning. In my opinion, acquiring wisdom is an individual process that develops through of critical thought. Therefore, while I have no intention of attempting to instill wisdom in a student, I do plan to encourage the critical thought that would be necessary for him/her to start their own journey.

My relevant work experience has included positions as a camp counselor for children ages 5-6 and work with at-risk-youth between the ages of 15-17. As for my teaching style, I won't sit here and tell you that I plan to make the learning process "fun," for two reasons. First, I believe that there are parts of learning that are intentionally difficult and some of the value provided is gained by engaging a difficult process head-on. More importantly, I believe that learning, if done the right way, is already fun. A student who has grown a hunger for knowledge will find that in all instances, the process of learning is rewarding in and of itself and should they encounter a difficult concept, they will have the desire to face it themselves. That being said, I believe that I have the capability to demonstrate the value of education to students of all types through different teaching methods. Having been a student who struggled in school early on, I find that current students in similar situations are the ones I am most drawn to. I welcome students of all kinds and look forward to meeting you soon.

Best,
Branden
