I have taught a broad array of courses in political philosophy, history, religion, and literature to college-level students at a wide variety of Canadian and American universities for 12 years. I have also had some experience teaching high school students, though, and actually feel as though I can sometimes have a more positive impact on students at the high school level.
I am able and willing to tutor anyone who needs my help in learning or improving their skills as they might relate to: a) the English language (speaking, reading, writing, grammar, spelling, etc.) and its literature (understanding meaning, intention; writing essays or papers), b) history (especially European and U.S. history), c) German, d) Hebrew, well as e) a number of other subjects in the humanities or social sciences. Although I have lived in this country for many years, having attended university here, I am from Scotland originally and I have lived in a number of different countries around the world. I firmly believe that my experience and outlook gained from all this can be uniquely helpful to students, from whatever background, seeking help in subjects related to the humanities and social sciences--in subjects, that is, which have first and foremost to do with language, and therefore with everything that language enables human beings to do.
I am married, and have a seven-month old son. I my spare time, such as it is, I enjoy watching good TV shows, reading good books, and taking my three dogs for walks.
