Oxford Tutor

I'm a current master's and rising doctorate student in political philosophy at Oxford University, where I study as a Rhodes Scholar. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa and High Honors from the University of Virginia with a degree in politics and international relations in 2016, where I was a Jefferson Scholar and Echols Scholar. I was subsequently selected as a Truman Scholar from the State of Connecticut in 2015.

I can tutor in virtually any subject relating to political theory and political philosophy. I can also tutor the SAT for students who are interested in applying to U.S. schools (I received a perfect score of 2400 on my SAT). Outside of my coursework, I'm an avid squash player, concert-goer, and (in typical American-abroad fashion) traveler.

Tutoring Experience

In addition to 6+ years of tutoring experience, I also taught a class in undergraduate on the United States Supreme Court. My teaching experience is thus quite varied: I've tutored adults in English language, middle school aged children in general subjects, British A-levels students in American politics, and American undergraduates in law. I'm comfortable in a variety of settings, and I can work with a variety of subjects.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to tutoring is diagnostic: I spend a lot of time trying to understand how my students learn and think, so that I can present the material in a way that makes sense, and, further, so that I can give them the tools and skills to teach themselves. I genuinely enjoy helping students to master and understand material, and I will take a personal interest in your success. The only way you can understand material is if you find techniques/methods of making it "your own," and my job is to help you get there—primarily by making it interesting to you! We can have a little fun along the way. :)
