Civics, history and government are my passion, reach out to sign up for tutoring!

Methodology

I like to keep it conversational and encourage questions. I am not going to lecture you and I don’t expect a base level of knowledge. We will explore the topics together and I will guide you to the knowledge you want to learn in a positive and constructive manner.

Background

I am a government affairs professional with a degree in political science and history. I am also currently pursuing my masters degree in Public Affairs and Politics. I am passionate about history and civics and would be thrilled to teach you what you would like to know.
