I am committed to giving students the best skill set they can possibly attain. I derive satisfaction from mentoring young adults and love to see it when my students "get it." My goal is to instill in my clients a love for tough subjects and set them on a path of academic success.

I have experience in the California public school system as a long-term 10th grade English substitute teacher, and have taught middle school and high school level history in this capacity. Having passed multiple A.P. exams and attained a bachelor's degree in history from the University of California at Berkeley, I wish to engage the prospective college student with learning methodologies that aided me along the way. Some examples would be:

1. Crafting cohesive and structured essays, with emphasis on paragraph cohesion, thesis statements, and word choice.
2. Analyzing historical contexts and themes, so that the student will grasp the "big picture" while also answering specific questions pertaining to names, dates and important moments along the timeline.

Currently, I publish original research for the Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium, (TRAC) hold a M.A. in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies from the Monterey Institute of International Studies.

I look forward to helping students succeed at school as a Varsity Tutor!
