« Astrid is a person of focus and dedication. Curious, investigative, organised and bright, she is a leader and a person one would be lucky to be taught by. She will go above and beyond her way to deliver on her work and will consistently deliver quality and brilliance. She is also a great mentor and does not back down from a challenge.

Columbia student & King's College London graduate (major politics - minor philosophy) offers politics & IR lessons

Methodology

I only have one rule when it comes to teaching : it must be fun. I usually use all sorts of material (movies, series, cartoons, texts) in order to make the lesson more joyful and less boring for the student. Politics after all is just Game of Thrones in real life. I mainly teach children, teenagers and undergraduate students. For the youngest ones (in primary school), this is just an initiation to politics with an emphasis on how to be a good citizen and why our actions matter for our democracy to function well. I can also help teenagers and students prepare for their exams. Whether you are team Daenerys or Jon Snow, let's aim towards the throne (and beyond).

Background

Hello ! I am a Columbia Journalism School student. I just completed a master's degree in journalism at Sciences Po (Paris) and a Liberal Arts degree at King's College London (major : politics, minor : philosophy). There, I studied mainly International Relations and European politics and public policies. My dissertation was focused on the Universal Basic Income. Thanks to my minor in philosophy, I had the opportunity to take classes in Ethics, Metaphysics, Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Religion.

Astrid is a person of focus and dedication.
Curious, investigative, organised and bright, she is a leader and a person one would be lucky to be taught by. She will
go above and beyond her way to deliver on her work and will consistently deliver quality and brilliance.
She is also a great mentor and does not back down from a challenge. She is an inspiration and a role model in the making.
She will assist you in evey step of the way as she is reliable, trustworthy and intuitive. I often mention her to others for her strong will and intelligence.

If you need to set your grammar in order, Astrid is the person to call. She understands the structure of language and knows how to convey it from a very organized perspective.
