I approach each topic based by thematic patterns, and emphasize geography and topography of each region that heavily ties into each conflict.
I also teach from the Gestalt method--teaching from experience, and emphasizing understanding. I am lenient and fair, and challenge students to think for themselves.
I am a current student at the London School of Economics pursuing a masters' degree in the History of International Relations. I am a graduate of the top #8th school in international studies, the American University in Washington, DC. I have a wealth of experience teaching students the dynamics of international relations and history, as well as professional development like public speaking, negotiation, and debate.
