My name is Cassius. I am a senior at UCLA, currently undertaking an honors research project on the Dominican intervention of 1965. My major is history, and comparative literature and global studies are my minors. I hope to attend Colombia or Berkeley Law next year!
The best way to better understand most social sciences--history, in particular, I have found--is to throw oneself into the deep end. Reading challenging texts and discussing ideas about them often helps to bring into greater refinement students' understandings of the humanities. I try to apply this principle to my tutoring. In history lessons, I have students read primary source texts as a vehicle for better understanding historical themes and mores. In LSAT prep, intensive review of tests facilitates a similar understanding. That being said, I craft my approach to every individual students' abilities and needs.
I am a steady straight A English student. My SAT English score was in the 98th percentile. I am also currently pursuing a comparative literature minor, focusing on English and Russian literature. Any student looking for help with grammar, essay writing, or critical analysis of texts should inquire about my services! If you would like a sample of my writing, I am happy to provide.
I scored a 171 (98th percentile) on the August 2021 LSAT. This was my first try. I can help you improve 5-10 points!
My history library takes up four full bookshelves at the moment! I have been a lifelong history fanatic and straight A history student. I am currently pursuing an honors history major at UCLA. You'll have a tough time finding a more dedicated and passionate history tutor than me!
