Bio

Whether tutoring one-on-one or in a classroom setting, I have consistently been successful in promoting this outcome. After a teaching career in independent schools in the United Kingdom, I came to the United States in 1995 and have taught at both college and high school levels, specializing in preparing students to pass Advanced Placement examinations in American History, European History, and U.S....

My goal throughout my teaching career has always been to foster a love of learning. Whether tutoring one-on-one or in a classroom setting, I have consistently been successful in promoting this outcome. After a teaching career in independent schools in the United Kingdom, I came to the United States in 1995 and have taught at both college and high school levels, specializing in preparing students to pass Advanced Placement examinations in American History, European History, and U.S. Government and Politics. I have conducted workshops for the College Board, and for several years was a Table Leader for the AP U.S. History Reading. For several years I have also tutored student in preparation for the reading and writing sections of the SAT.

Rather than drilling students with information, my teaching method has always relied on getting students to think for themselves and to arrive at their own conclusions. I am particularly proud of my ability to transmit my enthusiasm for my subject to my students, the key I believe to a successful outcome. I expect my students to hold me to a high standard, and likewise I expect rigor from them. My assignments are varied, and I always aim to provide timely feedback.

If you think that I may be able to help you in your academic endeavors, please contact me so that we can schedule a meeting. I look forward to working with you
