History Ph.D., University of Chicago, offering tutoring in social sciences, reading, and writing

Methodology

I have been a teacher and tutor for nearly ten years. As a lecturer at the University of Chicago I have taught classes on salient themes and issues in European and global history, as well as introduced students to classic social and political texts. Insofar as UChicago has a very sizable foreign student body, and English is often a second language, I have had to develop effective communication skills and pedagogical tools to render my lessons both meaningful and accessible. This has entailed utilizing an array of multimedia resources (video, podcast, interactive and educational websites) to effectively organize and communicate subject material to students. It has also entailed tutoring individual students, outside of class, on the general mechanics of critical reading and writing.

Background

I have been teaching and tutoring for nearly ten years. As a lecturer at the University of Chicago, I have taught over 600 students, many of whom have gone on to M.A. and Ph.D. programs, in both humanities and the social sciences, at top tier universities (Princeton, Stanford, Harvard).
