University of Melbourne Master of International Relations graduate giving lessons to high school and undergraduate students in politics and social studies

Methodology

In my field, there is always tons of jargon - something I hate! I refuse to throw terms at you without giving them their proper context - my lessons come from a holistic historical, socio-political framework. There is no sense in learning from rote - I will always encourage creative, critical and lateral thinking.

A normal lesson will usually be discussion based - I learn best through written text, but will make sure to utilise many diagrams and other visual cues, including puzzles. There will be a mix of short answer and multiple choices quizzes to ensure learning checks, and I will encourage verbal delivery of knowledge if you struggle to write it out.

I believe that the best way to teach is through student led methods - you will know what you need from me, and what you are trying to achieve. I am an outgoing young person who looks for the humour in life - lessons with me are best suited to those who want to think critically and come out of their shell more. However, I am also patient and understand how difficult learning can be when balancing it with life's challenges - my lessons will always be supported by empathy.

Background

I am currently a first year law student with a Bachelor of Arts and Master of International Relations from the University of Melbourne. I hope to work in international human rights law someday - you will struggle to find a tutor more passionate about this field than me!

While I am new to giving lessons, I have a long history with being a student and understand the kinds of pressures and confusion studying can bring with it.

I have also interned at the Sri Lankan Consulate and a political research firm, bringing professional experience from the field with me.
