I earned my bachelor's degree in Political Science with the minor in Philosophy from Arizona State University and my Master of Arts in Global History from American Military University. My professional experience includes serving as a commissioned Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Navy and teaching English as a foreign language both at home and abroad. I recently moved to the Las Vegas metro area where I am starting a post-baccalaureate degree in secondary education to teach social sciences. I have traveled extensively for academic, professional, and personal purposes, visiting over 40 countries and living in a dozen different places. I have advanced proficiency in Spanish and basic skills in several other foreign languages.
I have tutored 1 on 1 in Spanish and taught English as a foreign language both in the classroom and in private lessons. While involved with a PhD program in International Politics, I worked as a Teaching Associate and mentored students, graded essays and exams, and help run in-person and online courses. I have a deep-seated passion for learning which I try to impart to my students. I believe that the ideal tutor must possess subject-mastery, yet also be lively, enthusiastic, and engaging. The best teachers I have had were the ones who were able to break down complex subject-matter into easy to understand terms, concepts, and rules. I try to carry on this legacy in tutoring, encouraging interest in the material while driving students to progress. I know what it takes to thrive in the academic world and am happy to share my keys to success!
When I'm not sitting around with my nose in a book I enjoy traveling and exploring new places. I love running, hiking, checking out new movies, good food, all things sci-fi, spirituality, joking around with friends, and trying new things! I'm also a huge fan of concerts and heavy and electronic music.
