I am a recipient of a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers University, New Brunswick. I pursued two majors at Rutgers: history and psychology. My history curriculum revolved around a global perspective, within which I learned to engage and analyze historical narratives through a comparative framework. My senior thesis, "Savage Shadows: Reflections of Afghan Men in American Media, 2001-2003", required original research and lay at an intersection of historical analysis, media studies, and gender studies. I am a member of Phi Alpha Theta, a nationally recognized academic honor society for history. My psychology curriculum tended towards a neurological coursework, with a particular interest in atypical development, abnormal psychology, and behavioral pharmacology.

While I am most passionate about history and psychology, I am comfortable teaching a wide spectrum of related subjects, from Art History, to Biology, to Literature. At Rutgers I served as a Peer Tutor for Army ROTC Cadets, engaging with them one-on-one or in groups. Most of my time was directed towards providing Cadets with assistance and instruction in english composition, literature, grammar/mechanics, and expository writing.

I believe that education is a powerful way for young people to not only achieve social mobility but also to come to terms with themselves and the world around them. As a consequence, my teaching strategy is aimed at engendering a deep and meaningful understanding of the subject, as well as being attentive to the student's need for clarity, intellectual honesty, and positive support. For fun, I like to read, write poetry, hike, play guitar and garden.
