"I also have an undergraduate degree in political science from GWU with a concentration in public policy. As you may be able to tell, I have always been interested in governmental institutions of all kinds, as well as the nongovernmental ones that surround them. Of late I have become interested in the United Nations and its specialized agencies, an area about which I have always been curious. Back in my undergraduate years, I authored my senior thesis on the United States' decision to rejoin the United Nations Scientific, Educational and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 2002 after an 18-year absence." ...

"Any level and topic of Mathematics is fun and exciting for me and I enjoy inspiring my students to feel the same way.

I love tutoring because I enjoy being the one who guides these young minds as they figure out the world of academics.

"Once my goal is reached, they would not need a tutor. I always encourage them to solve a problem on their own and give them as little help as possible. I try to show my students that with a bit of diligence and patience any problem could be solved. If my student is lacking the knowledge of the basics I always make sure to cover them quickly before teaching the more advanced subject."
