I have a genuine passion for Political Science and learning. Passing on the knowledge I have generates a special relationship with learning, which is why I offer my services as a tutor. I base my lessons on asking questions to my students about the knowledge they have received and guiding them to critical answers. I also put effort into learning what works best for a student and then suggesting individualized study plans.
I am an honors student with specialization in Political Science and Theory but general knowledge across all the Social Sciences and Humanities. I have written countless essays and research papers and, through it, learned what makes a good writer. I am also on track to go to grad school by the time I get my Bachelor's and have years of experience in community organizing, administrative assitantship, leadership development, fundraising, and, of course, tutoring. I have tutored since I was in high school, bringing my experience to 5 years and counting. I bring all aspects of my holistic background to every tutoring session to ensure my clients receive all the help they can need.
