Tutor Information


Hello! My name is Melanie, I'm a sophomore at Siena College in New York. I am a double major in Political Science, with a focus on American Politics and Justice, and Philosophy. Please message me if you need any sort of accommodation! I am here to help you, and look forward to being able to assist you. I spend my free time reading political theory books, and I pay close attention to domestic United States affairs. I am also set to be published through my college on a paper I wrote titled "The Effects of Discrimination in Modern Philosophical Theory."
