Bio

Hi - I'm a very experienced IB and AP teacher as well as an active professional journalist. I make learning fun, and my professional writing helps me give students practical advice in their writing. I love working one-on-one with students and motivating them to be the best they can be. I started teaching 20 years ago, and since then I have taught in international schools in seven countries.

Hi - I'm a very experienced IB and AP teacher as well as an active professional journalist. I make learning fun, and my professional writing helps me give students practical advice in their writing. I love working one-on-one with students and motivating them to be the best they can be. I started teaching 20 years ago, and since then I have taught in international schools in seven countries.

I'm an active professional journalist, and as an IB and AP teacher I have advised many students on their IB Extended Essays, AP exam essays, and IB Theory of Knowledge essays, IGCSE Global Perspectives essays, as well as their college application essays. I am good at generating ideas and helping students come up with possibilities to explore in their writing, as well as teaching structures for essay writing. I scored 98th percentile on the GRE verbal in 2006. I also speak Spanish (I lived in Spain, Costa Rica, and Panama), and I can work well with Spanish-speaking students.

I have a deep background in history and I have taught grades 6-12, including AP and IB, and everything from IB Global Politics to AP Government to AP Human Geography, as well as Ancient-Medieval history, Early Modern, World History, and US History. I have a Master's in Liberal Arts focusing on intellectual history. I make history fun by relating it to everyday things kids know and current events they are interested in. I help students make connections and also use images to bring history alive. I also have taught in international schools in seven countries and traveled to nearly 40 countries, and I can bring students images, ideas, and stories from these places to bring social studies alive.

I'm an experienced teacher and journalist and I love discussing social studies with students, because it is relevant to all of our lives. I have experience with IB, AP, IGCSE, middle school, and also college teaching. I have a broad academic background, with a BA in Government from Georgetown and two Master's in Geography and Liberal Arts, the latter focusing
