About Andrea


Bio

My passion for tutoring comes from my passion for spreading knowledge of issues of gender, gender theories, feminist theories, feminist methodologies, and feminist philosophies. For my Masters, my coursework included looking at all of society through a gendered lens. As such, I explored topics such as the commodified female body, representations of women, the ways in which gender impacts caretaking, and how gender plays out in urban spaces.

My passion for tutoring comes from my passion for spreading knowledge of issues of gender, gender theories, feminist theories, feminist methodologies, and feminist philosophies. For my Masters, my coursework included looking at all of society through a gendered lens. As such, I explored topics such as the commodified female body, representations of women, the ways in which gender impacts caretaking, and how gender plays out in urban spaces. Key theories that I am drawn to include feminist nomadic thinking, gender performativity, and feminist standpoint theory. I am inspired by the works of Braidotti, Irigaray, de Beauvoir, Haraway, Butler, Bracke, and Van de Berg. As a storyteller and artist, I am also drawn to the sociology of storytelling and how creative self-expression is embodied in everyday life. I am also mad for methodology and indeed my thesis was on exploring how feminist methodologies impact research design and outcomes. This is to say, I take the position that methodology is equally as important as findings.

I’ve worked for 20+ years in and around the entertainment and non-profit worlds as producer, researcher, writer, and assistant. My entertainment background includes recently creating a documentary project that promotes liberal voices in the small town South, being Associate Producer for the award-winning indie film Tiger Orange, and working on 40 episodes on The Simpsons as assistant to producer Bonnie Pietila. Non-profits I have worked for include The Milken Family Foundation, The Friends of the British Council, Empowher!, and The Batonga Foundation. In fall of 2018, I received my MSc in Sociology: Gender, Sexuality, and Society from the University of Amsterdam.

Along with the foundations of sociology such as Marx, Weber, Goffman, Bourdieu, and Durkheim, I am also trained in the feminist sociologists and philosophers such as Braidotti, Irigaray, de Beauvoir, Haraway, Butler, Bracke, Van den Berg, and others.

I have 15+ years experience as a solo performer and storyteller blending aca

Great sociology tutor

Andrea was very helpful in advising me about my sociology paper. She helped me apply broader sociological concepts to the specific field note observations I took and took care in proofreading my paper. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor for anyone looking for help with sociology.
