In the classroom, I aim to provide clear and engaging instruction, as well as timely and thoughtful feedback. My primary goal is to impart to students an enthusiasm for the subject at hand and a clear understanding of the scientific process.


I have been fortunate to teach students in variety of settings. For seven semesters, I was a teaching assistant for the graduate-level Global Cities in Northwestern's Master of Public Policy and Administration program. At the undergraduate level, I was a teaching assistant for the Introduction to Comparative Politics course at Penn State with Matt Golder. In addition to providing guest lectures for several undergraduate courses at Penn State and the University of Michigan, I have also taught a variety of short methods workshops at the University of Michigan, Uppsala University in Sweden, and Sungkyunkwan University in South Korea. Aside from these college teaching experiences, I spent a year as an instructional assistant in a second-grade classroom. I was also an ACT and SAT tutor for nine months, and I taught English as a Foreign Language in Minsk, Belarus for more than two years. I list the courses I have taught below.
