About Susanne

I am a doctoral student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My degree is in Political Science with specializations in Political Theory and International Relations. I have been a teaching assistant at the university for three years but a tutor for much longer. In my home state of Minnesota I tutored English as a Second Language through writing, technology, and elementary mathematics courses. While abroad in Chile I taught advanced ESL to college students through my own course. These days I focus on helping undergraduate students understand material from courses like: Globalization, Governance & World Order 252; American Politics 101; Controversies in Public Policy 181; American Foreign Policy 255; and World Politics 121.

I typically work with groups of 12-18 students once a week with private sessions offered twice a week. I am comfortable working with all age and experience levels. I have experience advising on everything from research practices, oral and visual presentation perfection, essay writing (both draft and final submission), critical thinking, and reading and study strategies. I have worked with a range of personalities and am very understanding of individual differences in learning styles and pacing. As a student who personally struggled with learning delays, I know that we all have great potential that just needs to be nurtured to flourish.
I look forward to hearing from and working with members of my community.

This summer I my schedule is particularly free. Please contact me to see what we can arrange and what would work best for you!
