Previous employment and international experiences enrich my teaching - both by drawing on lessons learned, and also the knowledge and capability to engage students in international lives. I seek to mentor students and cultivate global citizens in three areas, through: 1) study overseas, 2) scholarship opportunities, and 3) careers (including graduate school).

Study Abroad

  • Lead students on overseas study tour, combining a focus on culture, history, and language

  • Develop (at present) a new foreign study from the ground up


  • Write and submit a wide range of recommendations to support students' fellowship applications

  • Experience in supporting Fulbright Scholar awards


  • Craft letters of support for admission to graduate school

  • Prepare for career fair and support through job-search and preparation process

Service Learning

While a doctoral candidate at Tufts University, I co-founded the Refugee Assistance Program, which trained and connected scores of undergraduates to recently resettled refugees in the Boston area. In addition to providing needed support for immigrant populations, this program jump-started the careers and next steps of a number of students, e.g. earning a Truman Scholarship and engaging in immigration work for the US government.

The Refugee Assistance Program was recognized for its work, and received a grant from Tufts' Tisch College of Civic Life. It also provided the foundation for a similar program, sponsored by the Massachusetts Office for Refugees and Immigrants, implemented statewide.
