Subjects I teach
I have experience in supervising, teaching and examining students through lectures, seminars, course work and tutorials. I have worked at the New School in New York City and the London School of Economics and Political Science.
I have taught politics and international relations for five years at the LSE Government Department (Theories of Nationalism, Power and Politics), where I carried out student-centred teaching and executed inductive learning. Most recently, I have been instructing LSE100 – the School’s flagship course (2016-2017), where I taught on the methodologies of the social sciences, focusing on the core concepts of evidence, explanation and abstraction, and worked to strengthen students’ critical research, argumentation and communication skills.
I have experience in carrying out independent study, to one-to-one dissertation guidance. I’m teaching small groups for the LSE Summer School on the “Global Politics of Protest and Change”. I also supervise personal tutees for their end of year dissertations through conducting individual workshops for MSc students.

My Approach to Private Tuition
My tutoring philosophy rests on two principles. First, you need to know what your goals are. This means that at the start of our collaboration, and of each session, I’ll help you set your objectives and devise a checklist. Second, you need to enjoy the learning process as much it is possible. Therefore, I’ll teach you how to learn most effectively and how to keep learning while being entertained.
