Research papers are assigned across disciplines and are important to understand at a fundamental level. This course is designed to ensure that you understand the structure of a research paper so that when you're assigned one in school you can dive right in. We discuss the importance of audience and learn how to create an outline and a thesis. We will also talk about sources to ensure your paper is credible.
I’m a sophomore Economics major at Barnard College. I previously attended Montclair High School and have been tutoring for six years. I have done private tutoring as well as Barnard Peer-to-Peer tutoring. I am organized and creative, so I can consistently think of new ways to explain the material. I also am approachable and encouraging, so students will feel comfortable interacting with me. I begin my tutoring sessions gathering the problems the student had the greatest difficulty with and after reviewing these I create practice exams from a mix of their past problem sets, problems I find online, and problems I make up to target specific areas the student is struggling with.
