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 2017-18 academic year, I am an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Politics at Drexel University and in that capacity I am teaching Introduction to American Politics in the Fall 2017, Winter 2018, and Spring 2018 quarters. Each quarter, one section is taught face-to-face and another online, allowing me to gain experience with both of these mediums of teaching.
At Drexel University, I am also teaching one upper-division course each quarter: the United States Congress in Fall 2017; the U.S. Presidency in Winter 2018; and American Political Parties 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 current as well as prospective 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.
