University of Colorado-Boulder (Political Science)
Hi! My name is Sarianna. I was born and raised in Colorado. I graduated Magna cum Laude in Political Science from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I double majored in PSCI and Women and Gender Studies. I graduated in the top 15% of my class in both my majors.
I've done policy work and research in Israel, Washington D.C., and NYC. My work has even been included in reports presented to former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton. I've presented papers at Princeton, Johns Hopkins, and Colorado Mountain College. I currently teach 6th grade reading with DSST (Denver School of Science and Technology).
My approach to tutoring is integrative. Sometimes it is easy to get bogged down by papers and theory, so whatever you are frustrated with or want help understanding, I will work with you to come up with creative and fun approaches--because not everyone learns from just reading or sitting in a lecture hall.
I'm a huge fan of flash-cards, presentations, fun quizzes, coming up with songs (I've got a pretty catchy song about the American Presidents), and really just finding the best ways for you to learn the material you are struggling with.
I'm here to help you reach your goal of getting an A on your next paper, or just understanding what Alexis de Tocqueville actually means.
I'm also open to setting up sliding pay-scales for those that need help, but cannot afford my current hourly rate. My goal is to help students, not to have price be a determining factor in barring them from assistance. Hi! My name is Sarianna. I was born and raised in Colorado.

Asked Sarianna to review and critique an APUSH paper. She is an expert at this and quickly provided targeted help and on the fly feedback.
Couldn't be happier. Thanks Sarianna!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I danced ballet for 15 years. I trained at Perry Mansfield Performing arts summer camp for 9 years, and had the opportunity to work/learn with teachers from Alvin Ailey, Jose Limon, Robert Battle, New York City Ballet, and many others.
In addition to that, I danced at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
I still continue to take classes with Cleo Parker Robinson and the Colorado Ballet.

I graduated magna cum laude with a BA in political science from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I graduated in the top 15% of my political science class. My work is based in international politics, particularly Middle Eastern state development; however, I have a strong background in political theory and American political systems, both of which are required learning and understanding for PSCI students.
I have researched and worked in policy with organizations like FDD (Foundation for Defense of Democracy), LCHT (Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking) doing policy analysis and legislative reporting.
I have also worked on political campaigns for the 2005/2006 Maria Cantwell WA Campaign, volunteered with the DNC, and managed student campaigns for CU including political event planning for visiting international scholars, Take Back the Night campaigns, and other student run initiatives.
