I believe in every student gaining clarity in fundamental concepts before proceeding to more specific cases. I tailor my classes to student needs and enjoy interactive and enthusiastic students.
After going over the syllabus, I will come up with a weekly structure that will involve both discussions as well as written exercises specific to the student’s curriculum requirements and needs, to provide a holistic training in their chosen study area.
I am currently studying for a PhD in International Relations at the LSE. I am a Double Master's graduate in International Relations from Sciences Po, Paris and the LSE living in Central London. I am highly skilled at explaining and teaching fundamental concepts in politics and international relations and passionate about teaching and learning.
I have tutored many young adults as well as senior learners, both languages such as English and Hindi as well as lessons in history and politics.

Perfect! Shruti is incredible! I got a very high mark for my dissertation proposal with her help. Not only did Shruti tell me what can be improved in my proposal but also read and edit my drafts and give quality feedbacks for me to work on. Shruti also supported me through a very stressful time when I prepare my dissertation proposal and research. I was lucky to have Shruti to help me though the dissertation preparation and writing process and get the help that I cannot get from university.
