The method varies with the needs of the student(s). For tutoring, we can concentrate on the materials of the class, with a focus not just on getting the answers but of understanding and critically evaluating the theories being taught. For classes, there will be a lot of discussion based on shared readings, and I will mostly try to share my knowledge and ideas in the course of the discussion. The classes don't have to fall under the traditional academic categories; they can be areas of interest like the world economy, the US economy, the political economy of class, race, and/or gender, neoliberalism and globalization, the state of labor relations, economic causes and consequences of the pandemic, or others proposed by participants.
I have a PhD in Economics and 30 years experience teaching political economy, macroeconomics, and related areas in the US and in Latin America. I have worked with students from the first semester of college to the graduate level, as well as popular education in non-academic settings. I offer tutoring for classes you may be taking, as well as informal classes to help you understand the world through
Rates will be lower if we have a class with multiple students. Cancellation is OK with advance notice.
