All of Rupert’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Rupert’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

American History

Whether you are preparing for a test, trying to understand the basics, or working on a paper for class, I can help you excel in US History. I know the ins-and-outs of supreme court cases, presidents, treaties, and cultural history. I try to make learning history fun and relevant. It has always been a passion of mine: I wrote my Masters Thesis on US political history which was later published in an academic journal.

Anthropology

Anthropology was one of my specializations when I was a PhD student at Harvard University. I've worked with some of the top professors, both at Harvard and Cambridge, on ethnographic research methods and anthropological theory. Whether you are writing a research paper, trying to understand the core concepts, or preparing for a test, I can help you succeed.

Art History

When I was 18 I won a national award for my work in Art History and it has continued to be a passion ever since. I've worked with students who are studying Art History as an academic discipline as well as a career. I've helped students understand major artistic movements as well as how to write business reports on art markets.

College Counseling

A graduate of Harvard and Cambridge, I've personally gone through two of the toughest application processes in the world. As I private tutor, I draw on my own experiences and connections at universities to help high school students get into the college that's right for them. I then help students figure out how to turn their biographies into admissions essays that will stand out and demand the attention of the admissions officers.

Elementary Math

Teaching elementary math can be a lot of fun. I find the key is making it practical and relatable for the student, whether its playing with number cards, coins, or graphical aids.

I often work with young students who are struggling with the core concepts of multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction. I work on building their confidence, teaching them tricks to figuring problems posed in their textbooks, and making sure their answers are
correct.

I have a lot of patience with younger students and find it very rewarding.

Social Studies

I have an undergraduate degree in the Social and Political Sciences from Cambridge University. I have an MA and PhD from Harvard University in Sociology, which included classes in the anthropology department. I taught social studies while I was a graduate student at Harvard.

Sociology

I received my PhD in Sociology at Harvard University where I taught sociology classes to undergraduates. I received the Derek Bok Center Certificate for Distinction in Teaching for my work. I received my BA in the Social and Political Sciences at Cambridge University where I graduate top of my class with a Double Starred First.

Study Skills

I was a Teaching Fellow at Harvard, where I taught classes and mentored students individually. A large part of this individual mentorship was helping students better develop their organizational and study skills to cope with the demand and heavy work load that Harvard College students have to deal with. As somebody who overcame dyslexia in my teenage years, I have first hand knowledge of both the struggles that many students with learning differences have and a broad range of techniques for not just coping and catching up but for achieving excellence as well. At Harvard, I was awarded the Certificate for Distinction for Teaching for my work with undergraduates.
