I graduated from Knox College with a degree in International Relations, with a special focus on European politics. When in High School, I took the AP European History test, and received a 4.

Whether it was Kissenger's Diplomacy for my political science courses, or Moby Dick for my English Prosody class, reading is a must for any Liberal Arts degree. Since graduating, I have taught students in ages ranging between 8 and 22, and I was hired by the Los Angeles Unified School District to help tutor students who were in danger of failing their High School Exit Exams.
I am a Creative Writing major, with specialization in short fiction and poetry. I've taught students from middles school through college, with an average letter grade increase with all my students.
I started as a tutor in college, reading and editing the papers of my friends and classmates. Since then, I have perfected my ability to proofread and teach students how to edit and set up their own papers in such a way as to maximize the efficiency of their arguments in a clear and concise manner.

Good test taking strategies and a high grasp of reading comprehension allowed me to score in the 99th percentile of all English test takers on the SAT and the SAT II.

As a International Relations major at Knox College, I took a special interest in History classes. I've tutored AP European History, AP US History, AP Government, and World History. I've also tutored English at a middle school level, and I am comfortable with all the qualifications found in the average social studies course.
I graduated from Knox College with a BA in International Relations. Because International Relations is a subset of political science, I also took classes in Comparative Politics and Political Theory. Several of my classes required research papers, and I also was required to write a proposal for a research grant.
