I am an undergraduate student at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. My prospective B.A. is in Global Affairs with concentrations in Middle East studies and International Development. I recently completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program upon graduating high school and I have taken many Advanced Placement courses as well.
I currently work on Capitol Hill and my passions include policy, traveling, history, 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 abroad in India, and most recently, mentoring recently resettled refugees and helping them with language learning, cultural assimilation, and financial independence.
My areas of expertise and tutoring include European and World History, U.S. Politics and Government (including AP), Religion, German, 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 government or political science, because it relates to the field I work in and the ways I try to create better change via my career.
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 ask my students to ask questions and to find questions, and then actively seek the answers. 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 insure that students are meeting their goals and seeing results.
