I am currently a Writing Fellow in George Washington University’s Writing in the Disciplines program. In my teaching, I guide undergraduate students through the writing process, from formulating an initial research question to submitting a complete paper. In addition to writing instruction and assessment, I organize in-class workshops on writing skills, run peer-review sessions, and offer individual writing consultations.
My pedagogical approach is motivated by the belief that writing is an important part of thinking. Writing enables students to develop their own ideas, hone their critical and analytical skills, and express their unique perspectives on the world. Aware of their diverse backgrounds and varying levels of experience in academic writing, I encourage students to set personal goals for improvement and offer clear and consistent benchmarks for them to track their progress throughout the semester.
I have worked as a Writing Fellow for five semesters in the following courses: International Organizations (Fall 2018, Spring 2021, Fall 2021), Introduction to Comparative Politics (Spring 2020), and Comparative Politics of the Middle East (Fall 2020). Previously, I served as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for Introduction to International Politics (Fall 2017, Spring 2018, Fall 2018). My work included guiding discussion sections, delivering guest lectures, and assessing student performance.
