I am a former college instructor, specializing in political science and international affairs. In addition to the subject areas I have taught in, I can provide tutoring for writing, standardized test preparation, and general study skills. The most important skill that a student can learn for college is not how to memorize specific information, but how to go about budgeting their time and breaking down the material presented in classes. By developing these critical thinking skills, students can apply them to a broad range of academic challenges, spend less time working on writing assignments while producing higher quality outcomes, and improve both their grades and their retention of knowledge. My tutoring approach therefore combines content mastery with general strategies for reading, writing, and organizing time effectively.

Political Science

I have my doctorate in political science and have five years of teaching experience at the collegiate level in the subject. In addition to my broad competencies, I have subject area knowledge in multiple geographic regions and important global issues. My approach to teaching political science was strongly focused on improving writing and critical thinking, so I would be especially suited to helping students improve their verbal communication and reasoning skills.
