About Arik

I graduated with a philosophy major and minored in both history and theatre. As a result I have a wide swath of the humanities under my belt. I know what it takes to get up and talk in front of anyone, as well as how we have gone about making and performing on stages throughout time. Whatever the subject matter, I will be well equipped to help you research, write, and present on it.

I have competed in and coached debate on the national circuit for some of the best schools in the country. And I have coached people from age 6 all the way to 60 in a variety of fields including debate, acrobatics, martial arts, and philosophy. From this, I have accrued a particular insight into how a student approaches a task. Never removing myself too far from the experience of having to struggle, while still being able to provide an outside view.

Not only have I competed as a part of and gone on to coach some of the top debate teams in the country, but I have also professionally presented on literary theory. So, not only have I intensely studied a wide array of fields, but I also know how we think of and apply them at a fundamental level.

I have a unique insider view into the political world. Not only do I have a good grasp on the theoretical side, but I have also worked both for a lobbying firm and in a congressional office in D.C., giving me both the private and public sectors to pull from.

Whichever field in the humanities it is that you need assistance in, I will be there to support you. I won't just hand you a laundry list of facts to memorize the night before a test, but will instead be able to help you accumulate the tools that you need to succeed on your own.

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.

Fitness

I spent this summer teaching both children and adults circus arts at the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts. I have also been a part of Circus Warehouse's intensive program and am currently in the year-long professional training program in circus arts at The Actors Gymnasium.

Martial Arts

I spent six years studying the art of Shotokan Karate. From there I have spent the last eight years studying Italian rapier fencing from some of the best teachers on the continent. As well, I have also studied a variety of other martial arts, such as Systema, taught to me by ex-Spetsnaz soldiers.

Political Science

I studied political philosophy in college, as well as have held multiple positions in the field of politics. In high school I interned for the National Pork Producers Council in D.C.. Then in college I worked on the congressional campaign for Brad Schneider and then went on to work in his D.C. office after he won the election.

Public Speaking

I have competed in and coached debate on the national circuit for some of the best schools in the country. As well, I graduated with a minor in theatre and have since performed in a variety of shows. So, not only have I studied public speaking in a formal setting, but it is also currently a part of my every day job.

Social Studies

I hold a philosophy degree and wrote my senior thesis in the history department on sixteenth-century Italian history. I have also worked on capitol hill as a congressional staffer.

Theatre

I minored in theatre in college and have worked in a variety of professional theatres both in Kalamazoo and Chicago.
