About this tutor

As a tutor, I like to know my students’ specific needs and build connection with them. Tutoring makes possible a learning environment of reciprocity, one in which I learn from my students as they learn from me. I encourage students to think about the tutoring session(s) as a forum that welcomes and encourages a free exchange of ideas.

My commitment to education inspires students to learn and grow with dignity.

I am currently an Adjunct Professor of Government. I taught graduates and undergraduates courses at Texas A&M. I also provided lectures at Baylor University on host of topics including International Security, Middle East, Global Affairs, and International Relations.  I am also the winner of the 2015-2016 National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD).

I enjoy working with students and helping them be successful. You can check my ratings on ratemyprofessor.com
