    Perfect Your Essays and Learn to Work Efficiently!
    Nothing can boost your grade quite like a well-written essay. It's a brilliant exercise in critical thought, analysis, and comprehension that can help you interpret the world and its media long after graduation. In my classes, I focus on how to most efficiently express yourself, using the following technique: - Spending the majority of the process on the OUTLINE - knowing what you're going to say is the hard part, so let's knock that out first, the rest is easy! - Use of vocabulary - advance your speech in order to convey exactly what you want to say. - How to think critically - I will review with you what you should be looking for when you read, for maximum enjoyment as well as analysis. I look forward to seeing you in the Zoom Room!

    LBS EMBA | Tutoring for Dissertation and Thesis writing for Undergrad, Masters and Doctoral level candidates in business management, interna
    Any dissertation, thesis or a similar longer piece of writing comprising several thousand words requires careful planning and expert supervision. University supervisors are usually busy and meet their students only rarely. I act as the student's personal supervisor ready to help with their thesis writing whenever they need me. From the Research Proposal stage to Literature Review, Research Methodology chapter to Data collection and analysis, and Results chapter to Referencing, I guide and assist my clients/students throughout the complicated process. My teaching material always includes a blend of Harvard case studies, textbook chapters, lecture slides, audiovisual material and hands-on software practice (wherever needed). All my tutoring is highly customized to suit each client's particular needs. I also tutor Doctoral candidates studying towards a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) qualification.

    Political Science, International Relations and Government
    This class is aimed to provide guidance and help for anyone studying political science, government or international relations. I aim to structure all my lessons to broaden my student's worldview, challenge their assumptions and test the logic of their arguments. I am able to bring a unique synthesis of perspectives to all my lessons to help my students to use political science, government and IR theories to analysis current global issues. I also have a strong background in essay writing and logic which I use to help test and strengthen the theses of their essays. As this is an ever-evolving field, I feel learning is very much a two-way process, and try to use dialogue, discussion and contextual materials and examples to build the student's understanding. I really enjoy this field and try to bring my enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to every class I teach.
