As a tutorial instructor for Research Methods in Political Science, I had 96 students over one term. The primary focus of the tutorial sessions was to introduce students to R and beginner statistical analysis tools such as hypothesis testing, linear regression, and data visualization.
Tutorial instruction for Foundations of Political Theory and International Relations centered on the work of Aristotle, Mill, and Marx for half of the term and the other half on democratic peace theory and topics related to international trade. One of my main goals for the tutorial instruction was to introduce students to academic writing skills and resources.
I was the teaching assistant for State and Local Politics for over a year. I engaged students during office hours and marked various assignments including discussion boards, multiple choice exams, and end of term essays.
