Grad Student with two BA degrees under her belt (History & Political Science)

Methodology

I do not solely follow one teaching methodology, as I believe that each student is different. My strategy is to find which way of learning comes naturally to the student in order to make the material easier to digest. My goal is to not only teach a student how to excel at just one particular subject, but to also be able to take the strategies learned and use them in future academic endeavors.

Background

I am a grad student studying U.S. Foreign Policy at GW's Elliott School in D.C. I graduated in the top of my class from Cal State Bakersfield with two BAs. I have informally tutored throughout my time in college in many subjects.
