I teach International Relations (IR) classes and mark essays at the undergraduate level, and so I am very familiar with what it takes to succeed in them, and how to help students achieve top marks. I have experience with IR at many different institutions, and have taught students from a wide range of backgrounds. In addition to teaching undergraduate courses, I was a peer tutor in college for International Law, and taught 14 to 18 year olds at summer music camps.
I am also editor of a high-ranking, peer-reviewed IR journal (Millennium: Journal of International Studies), and regularly provide feedback to advanced scholars on their work, as part of the publication process.

My Approach to Private Tuition
As I’ve found from my experience teaching, and in my own studies at universities that teach by tutorial, one-on-one teaching can be extremely helpful for students at all levels. I tailor each of my lessons to the individual student’s needs, whether that is through activities that make dry academic theories come alive through real-world examples, step-by-step advice on how to structure an essay, or spirited debate over theories of International Relations. My students often attest that the atmosphere in my classroom is always stress-free and supportive, and enables students to arrive at answers on their own.
