EducationI am a doctoral candidate at the University of Alabama in Political Science, graduating in May 2016 with a 4.0 GPA. I graduated with my BA in International Relations and Political Science from Samford University with a 4.0 GPA in 2006. I have also trained with a test prep company to teach ACT, SAT, and PSAT prep and I have taught and tutored several of these courses.
-Instructor at University of Alabama (2008-present); courses taught: Intro to American Politics, International Relations, Comparative Politics, Methods of Political Science
-Teacher for Kaplan Test Prep (2014-present); courses taught: ACT prep, PSAT prep
-Private tutor for Kaplan Test Prep for ACT, PSAT
-Private tutor for UAB courses in Political Science, International Studies and History (2013-present)
What I am qualified to tutor:
I have undergone training with Kaplan Test Prep for tutoring one-on-one for the SAT, ACT, PSAT and many AP courses. I have also taught courses on ACT and PSAT prep. In addition to test content, I teach test strategy--where to spend time to get the most points, what to prioritize in your studying, etc.
My concentration in political science has been interdisciplinary, meaning I have taken a wide array of history courses on top of international studies and political science courses. I am qualified to teach any course within political science, international studies/relations, and history at the college level or below.

HobbiesI enjoy keeping up with current events and reading. In my down time, I spend time with my two dogs and play too many video games. I also love going to the movies and incorporate many pop culture references into my teaching--it helps keep students interested.
