ExperienceHi, I'm Kailash, and I love teaching. My favorite part of teaching is when a student has that "aha!" moment when they can grasp complex concepts. My tutoring style involves working on students' critical thinking skills, and teaching them how to learn independently. I use guided questions that are designed to engage the student and stimulate self-discovery. For test prep, I focus on giving them the skills necessary to tackle problems. I also give them tips to crack standardized testing.Currently, I am working on my Political Science PhD, with a focus on International Relations at Ohio State University. I have a lot of skills in tutoring and coaching public speaking. During the 2011-2012 academic year, I was an after-school tutor at Making Waves Academy, where I helped less fortunate children whose GPA had fallen to the point of being at risk of failure. I have also been a debate coach assistant in multiple schools in the U.S., where I worked with students on oral communication and critical reading. As a summer school teacher for public speaking, I helped students develop performance and debate skills at Education Unlimited. Also, I was a research assistant at the New America Foundation. I also had a monthly column in the UC Davis International Affairs Journal. Working as a columnist, I developed writing and research skills that I believe will benefit my students. I also think that my time spent as a graduate student will allow me to show my pupils the rigors of higher education.
