About Jeremy

Before pursuing graduate studies, I spent 3 years working in education consulting in Shanghai, China. I primarily helped students with university applications, and the students I worked with got in to schools including CalTech, Columbia, NYU, the University of Michigan, Carnegie Mellon, and UC Berkeley. I also helped develop and teach a Public Speaking and Confident Communication course and also have experience in English language tutoring. My resume is available upon request.

I love working with students for several reasons, but the overarching one is that I really enjoy seeing my students progress and find more joy in learning. Sometimes the logistics of school or the college application process overwhelm students, and it's my goal to help you focus on your learning and understanding of whatever it is you're working on. In this vein I view my role primarily as a facilitator and our work as a collaboration: I am here to help and guide you. My experience in college admissions and essay advising and Public Speaking training, as well as my undergraduate (and now graduate) coursework in Government, Politics, and Economics prepare me well to help you reach your goals.

As noted in my bio, I have extensive college essay editing and proofreading experience, and I have developed and taught a Public Speaking and Confident Communication course that uniquely prepare me to help you become a better communicator both in writing and speaking.

My undergraduate, and now graduate, coursework have been highly focused on government, politics, and economics, and this experience couple with my deep interest in the subjects outside of school make me a great resource to anyone struggling to understand these subjects.

Please don't hesitate to contact me, even if just for an initial consultation. I love getting to know students and would be privileged to help you become a better student and communicator.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Political Science

I have a Bachelor's degree in Political Science from Boston College. Political Science and Government has been a passion for me since high school and the study and following of it occupies much of my time. I follow political issues closely and have studied political theory, American and international politics, and am now a Master's student in Public Policy at USC. My interests and experience in these areas, coupled with my passion for helping others see the importance of understanding government and politics, prepare me to be a great tutor on this subject.

Public Speaking

While working for an education startup in China for 3 years, I helped to develop and refine a Public Speaking and Confident Communication curriculum. This curriculum was used to teach upwards of 10 students in 1-on-1 settings. Through developing and teaching this course I have extensive experience helping students prepare and deliver longer speeches as well as short impromptu ones. These include both persuasive and informative speeches. I have also trained students in proper interviewing techniques and given dozens of mock college interviews to high school students. I can help prepare you for class or business presentations, interviews, and more.
