I am an experienced teacher in the social sciences, politics and government, history, geography, English, writing, and English as a Second Language. I tutor students from the primary school level to advanced graduate students. Although I am a published scholar, I am approachable, easy-going, and adaptable. My job is to help my students help themselves quickly and easily in a way that makes learning the material interesting and fun also. I have a multi-cultural background and am comfortable speaking in 5 different languages (I'm native in English). I can help any student catch up with a course, pass an exam, prepare a paper, or learn why (for example) geography is interesting and important. I can help prepare and edit a Ph.D. dissertation also, if the student requires it. I've done all of this successfully, both in my own life and with my students. I am happy and comfortable to work with learners of all ages. I work with individuals, small groups, and classes and am enthusiastic about innovative approaches to learning. Please get in touch with me soon, because my schedule tends to fill up, and we'll work together to meet your goals in a way that you will find very rewarding.

Smart, patient tutor.
Biorn is a pleasure to work with, both helpful and knowledgeable. He is very present in our sessions and the advice he gives is something I can apply to all my assignments.Lisa, 6 lessons with Biorn
Biorn is genuinely helpful and supportive; he provided critical and constructive course corrections. I will certainly ask him for future guidance and support.Haider, 1 lesson with Biorn
Great tutor, very patient and perfectly fluent in Portuguese. Great for conversation or specific assignment help. Would definitely recommend.Anna, 1 lesson with Biorn
Fantastic Portuguese Instructor!
Biorn is a very friendly and knowledgeable Portuguese teacher. He adapts to my pace and style of learning the language, and also mixes in cultural and Brazilian history. It has been a great experience so far, and I look forward to more lessons in the coming months!Joe, 2 lessons with Biorn
This guy is Super Super Good.
Biorn has been awesome. You won't find a more knowledgeable tutor for Brazil/Portuguese/History (and probably a lot of other subjects) He is incredibly qualified and super good at distilling important and interesting information into mini lessons. Would HIGHLY recommend him, in fact if you're looking into him as a tutor, shoot me a note and I'd be more than willing to talk more.Matt, 4 lessons with Biorn
I was very nervous about a presentation for my graduate seminar class, browsed WyzAnt, and stumbled across Biorn's profile. He was nice enough to call me to discuss my goals for our tutoring session (a 20 minute phone conversation) before we Skyped later that evening. During our session, Biorn was incredibly enthusiastic, engaging, humorous and well-informed. He totally put me at ease and helped me write a VERY detailed outline for my presentation and several thoughtful questions to pose to my classmates. Early in our session I could tell that Biorn was as invested in my presentation being a success as I was. I would absolutely use Biorn for another tutoring session and would recommend him to others without hesitation. I wish he taught at my local university! Thanks, Biorn!!Lauren, 1 lesson with Biorn
EXCELLENT LESSON !
I have some basic background in Portuguese. Attempting other programs, with disappointment, Biorn jumped right in to access my background knowledge, engaged us in Portuguese conversation and made an exciting lesson. I feel my goals to communicate in Portuguese will be reached in minimum time. He knows how to stay focused on the lesson and keeps it interesting. I look forward to our next class and highly recommend him.Bill, 2 lessons with Biorn
