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.

Knowledgeable and helpful!
Biorn is a great tutor! He knows what he is talking about and is fantastic at relaying his knowledge. I was assigned a particular comparative politics essay, and he very easily helped me understand the material and complete the assignment. I am definitely going to continue to use Biorn as a resource, and I feel confident he could help me in any academic arena!Aoife, 2 lessons with Biorn
Expert historian and excellent tutor
Biorn is doing a fantastic job tutoring my high school sophomore in AP World History. With a Harvard degree and a PhD in History, he obviously knows the material and also has the people skills. We couldn’t ask for a better tutor.Adam, 5 lessons with Biorn
Knowledgeable, patient tutor in International Relations
Biorn helped polish my writing sample and statement of purpose for an international relations program. During the sessions, he helped enhance the clarity of my essays and strengthen my argument. Throughout the process, he has been kind and patient. I feel much more confident about submitting these materials now. Definitely recommend Biorn and will work with him again in the future!Jessica, 2 lessons with Biorn
A couple of weeks ago, I reached out to Biorn seeking help with a political science term paper. Though I felt I was in a good spot at the time, I knew that I needed another set of eyes to help elevate my prose to the next level. To keep a long story short, Biorn went above and beyond the call of duty. He went through multiple drafts of my essay to help me turn my work from good to great. Whenever I had a question about a specific detail of the assignment or an inquiry about scheduling another meeting, Biorn always got back to me at lightning speed. I’m an A student with a knack for writing, and I can honestly say that Biorn and I churned out some of my best writing ever over a relatively short period of time! Biorn’s knowledge of the subject and passion for the written word is unmatched, and I couldn’t be prouder of the quality of work he and I were able to produce. I know my writing wouldn’t have been as strong or captivating had I not reached out to Biorn – and for that, I will forever be grateful! Not to mention, he’s one of the coolest guys I’ve ever met! I look forward to continuing to work with Biorn to improve my writing skills, diction, and ultimately elevate my verbal game. If you are looking to do the same, then look no further than Biorn!Tom, 24 lessons 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
