Assistant for Introduction to Political Science

I sit on an armchair with my laptop open to a presentation given to one of my Political Science classmates.

Dr. Christianna Leahy, head of the Political Science department at McDaniel, gave me the opportunity to be the assistant for her Introduction to Political Science course during the spring of my first year. This position entailed hosting review sessions for students on days leading up to the course exam, one-on-one tutoring, and answering any questions which students had about the course. I was able to work with a group of students in understanding difficult concepts and individually help students achieve their goals for the course. I learned so much about how to effectively explain concepts and how to encourage students by helping them identify the tools they can use to study for content-heavy material.
