I am an energetic and experienced instructor, having independently taught seven self-designed graduate and undergraduate courses at MIT, Indiana University, and at the Norfolk and Framingham Correctional Institutions through Boston University's Prison Education Program. Additionally, I taught as an associate instructor of political science and economics for nine semesters. I have syllabi prepared, tested, and ready to go for courses on political philosophies of justice, graduate-level statistics, theories of the policymaking process, the evolution of the American presidency, and the economic theories and political realities of environmental sustainability. Student reviews of these courses are exemplary, as are their reviews of my performance as a teacher. You can read about my teaching philosophy here, and you can see recent student evaluations here.
