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

Drawing

I have been drawing since I was 6 years old and specialize in portraits and anime sketches. I was chosen to create the cover art of a college publication at the editor's request. Recently, I have accepted requests for portraits ranging from newborn babes for mothers to former military officials.

With students I am patient, being raised by an award winning musician I recognize the the creative process can take time to develop. I like to ask my students what they enjoy, a child may say "Iron Man" so I ask the child to draw "Iron Man". I believe art, being one's unique expression, must come from the heart.

In short, I love art be it experiencing it or sharing it.

Government & Politics

I was a political science major with an emphasis in East Asian politics at Grinnell college. Besides collegiate projects ranging from US immigration policy to democratization in the Middle East I have also had real-word experience with policy creation. Notable employers have been State Representative Barbara Flynn Curie and former head of the Chicago 9/11 Commission Mr. Cortez Trotter.

Politics is a complex issue however it need not be so arcane or mysterious. I would love to assist any student that I can in breaking down core concepts, or drafting lengthy projects.

Japanese

I have studied Japanese for 9 years, starting in high school and continuing into college via my East Asian studies concentration. I have also lived and Japan and as of 2013 was invited to accompany a former Navy Seal Team Six captain to Osaka for a month.

I have always had a deep passion for Japanese history and culture which influences my teaching style. I prefer to tutor beginning and intermediate Japanese learners so I may weave some of the more "foreign" aspects of Japanese culture into my lessons. I believe when these cultural aspects are understood the language can be acquired that much faster.

Martial Arts

I have been trained in the Korean art of a Tang Soo Do for 13 years. Its techniques and forms are drawn from tradition Korean arts as well as Karate. A key principle is to "defend and strike" and so one of its nicknames is "the martial art with blocks that break bones". Besides Tang Soo Do I have experience in Wing Chun, Kali Eskrima and Pencak Silat.

I have taught people as young as 6 and taught youth camp over the summer of 2012.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
