Recent Law Graduate offering history, politics, and government/policy lessons in Philly

Methodology

I believe that all students are unique and have something to learn from each other. As such, teaching is a process of learning from your students, community, and colleagues. I will present a curriculum that will incorporate different learning styles and encompasses attributes of society, as well as making the content relevant to students’ lives. I will incorporate cooperative learning, projects, themes, and individual work that will challenge students’ learning.

Background

I am a recent law school graduate with years of political/government experience as a policy advisor to an elected official in Philadelphia. I pride myself in gaining exposure, both academically and professionally, in a wide variety of legal related subject matters ranging from employment litigation, bankruptcy, and public policy to corporate transactional work.
