I am a recent graduate of George Mason University and an incoming PhD student at the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University. My B.A. is in Global Affairs with a concentration in Middle East regional studies, in addition to a South Asian history minor. Earlier this year, I returned from spending a few months abroad at the American Institute of Indian Studies in Jaipur, India. Before attending GMU, I completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and I have taken many Advanced Placement courses as well.
I have worked in local politics and on Capitol Hill, for the Space Foundation, a local NGO in Jaipur, India called SMILE, and Save the Children. My passions include history, activism, labor rights, traveling, art, dance, reproductive health advocacy and education, and language learning. I have had opportunities throughout my life to study in both rigorous academic settings in America and immersive experiences abroad. These opportunities have fostered my passions and it is my goal to extend them to other people and eager students. My prior and ongoing experience includes tutoring history and government in unofficial capacities in high school, mentoring kindergarten and first graders, teaching English and health classes abroad in India, and mentoring recently resettled refugees and helping them with language learning, cultural assimilation, and financial independence. During my time in college, I served as the Vice President of my sorority, and was tasked with the honor of overseeing the scholarship facet of the highest GPA Panhellenic sorority on our campus. Before this, I held the position of Director of Career and Personal Development. I organized numerous workshops and events surrounding topics such as resume writing, interview skills, etc.
My areas of expertise and tutoring include ESL, European and World History, South Asia and Middle East studies, U.S. Politics and Government (including AP), Religion, German, Farsi, Hindi, and Latin. I also tutor any type of essay writing, English (including English as a second language), and writing skills. I am available for help with several IB courses including: IB History, Theory of Knowledge, and the Extended Essay. My favorite subject to teach is anything regarding history or government, because it relates to the field in which I work and the ways I try to create change via my career. I also love engaging in essay writing and resume writing, and helping tutees explore potential opportunities and make themselves strong professional candidates.
My teaching style aims to engage my students by creating an interest in the subject and finding ways to apply it in their lives. I like to encourage my students to ask questions and then actively seek the answers via critical thinking methods. Each student is different, and some gravitate to certain methods more than others, so it is my goal to bring as many diverse learning options as possible. Routine comprehension checks and conversations help ensure that students are meeting their goals and seeing results. It is great to get to know students on a personal level, and understand the ways our content integrates with their daily lives. I want students to know that I've spent my entire life in school too, and I know the challenges and struggles of the academic world, as well as how to overcome them.
