Geopolitical major with a Master's degree, specializing in Russian and Middle Eastern affairs

Methodology

My teaching method is dedicated to understanding the history and geography of a country or region, in order to predict and comprehend future issues and flash-points. International relations and politics is greatly influenced by long-established norms and sudden changes to the various systems that help govern geopolitics. Understanding the root causes of problems is essential in identifying solutions in the era of globalization, where consequences are felt by everyone.

Background

I am a writer and teacher with a background in geopolitics and conflict. I have written for several publications, mainly regarding international relations in the Middle East, Europe, and East Asia. I can help you understand any current global issue by looking at the history and motivation behind the countries involved, as well as what they want. I also have a great knowledge of global history and geography, if you want to keep politics out of what you're trying to learn.
