Currently I am a graduate student pursuing a PhD in Public Policy from the University of Massachusetts Boston. This semester, I have the opportunity to teach a course called "Concepts of Community", which explores how we conceive and understand the communities which we are all a part of. This is is not the first time that I will be teaching college students, prior to moving to Boston, I was an adjunct professor at Temple University in the Geography and Urban Studies Department. Temple University is also where I earned my MA in Geography and Urban Studies. Along with college students, I have worked with high school students. Upon graduating college, I worked as a substitute teacher, providing students with assistance whatever subject they have me working on for that day. Furthermore, there have been cases where I was in charge for classes where the teacher was absent for an extended period of time. Along with substitute teaching, I had the opportunity to work with young people through Temple University's Information, Technology, and Society Research Group's (ITSRG) BITS program. BITS (Building Information and Technology Skills) enabled me to teach young students from Philadelphia about urban planning, sustainability, and geographic information systems (GIS).
While my focus is on social sciences, I do have experience helping students understand math and other quantitative I disciplines. My job as a tutor is to help the student understand not only what they need to learn, but why they need to learn it. I want help students become motivated in their academic careers.
