Experienced history, politics, and social studies tutor eager to help students in the LA area

Methodology

As a tutor, I let my students lead the discussions and the direction of the lessons. Particularly in history and politics, students don't gain any knowledge or enjoyment from a teacher lecturing at them; instead, by leading students towards an understanding of historical and political forces by creating a personal connection to the past, I can help them both understand and enjoy history.

Background

I am a recent college graduate in history and political science, soon to be pursuing a graduate degree in international relations. Throughout my entire educational career I've been a peer mentor and tutor, helping my fellow students develop study skills, understand course material, and achieve their best in a number of academic disciplines like social studies, English, and public presentation.
