Teaching Experience As someone who has a passion for political science and politics alike, I enjoy the opportunity to contribute to students' success and to help them better understand course material and concepts.
For the current (2019-20) academic year, I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and International Affairs at the University of Mary Washington. In that capacity, I am teaching Introduction to American Politics; Contemporary Problems in American Politics; Recent Research in Political Science; and Research and Writing in Political Science.
For the 2017-18 academic year, I was an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Politics at Drexel University and in that capacity am taught Introduction to American Politics in the Fall 2017, Winter 2018, and Spring 2018 quarters. Each quarter, one section was taught face-to-face and another online, allowing me to gain experience with both of these mediums of teaching.
At Drexel University, I also taught one upper-division course each quarter: the United States Congress in Fall 2017; the U.S. Presidency in Winter 2018; and Elections, Public Opinion, and Voting Behavior in Spring 2018.
Before coming to Drexel, I taught Introduction to American Politics at the University of California-Davis during the Summer of 2016.
Given my teaching experience, I am well-qualified to teach upper-level American Politics courses, as well as an introductory-level course in American Politics. Further, given that my second examination field as a graduate student at the University of California-Davis was Political Methodology (with the first examination field being American Politics), I also possess the skill set necessary to teach an undergraduate methods course, particularly one that emphasizes quantitative techniques.
