"...in political science and a M.S. in journalism, I am best at helping my students take their academics to the next level in reading, writing, and essay composition.

"...My main goal as a teacher is to inspire students at all levels with passion, since I am guided by the belief that the topics we study in the classroom are highly pertinent to their daily experience and also to our own personal lives. I constantly work on creating a classroom environment that can foster as much discussion, debate, and interaction as possible. I am guided by the belief that the work we do in a class is inherently valuable, and it also serves as preparation for students to experience what we study outside a strictly academic context. In practice, this means that I seek to foster the students’ capacity to apply themselves rigorously to the material, to create a dynamic exchange of ideas in the classroom through small and large group discussions, and finally, to sharpen their awareness of the fact that the issues we explore and the tools of analysis and communication we use in this exploration are highly pertinent to their daily experience..."

"...As an undergraduate, I was a teaching assistant for introductory Russian, and worked with students both in group and in individual sessions. My academic background is varied, and thus I am able to tutor students in a range of topics, including Environmental Science, Biology, Psychology, Statistics, French, Russian, English Language and Literature, and exam preparation (SAT, ACT, AP and GRE). My favorite topics to tutor in are Biology and Environmental Science, since I love sharing my interest in the science and using it to help students better understand and enjoy these exciting fields. My teaching philosophy is best summarized as "show not tell" -- I find that guiding students such that they can arrive at the answers themselves, rather than just explaining the problem, helps them fully realize their potential for success..."
