About Po

I believe that the key to any student's academic success is a sense of empowerment. Not only must students feel that they have the ability to engage with complex material but they must also have a sense that they can use what they have learned to effect positive change for themselves and for others. As a tutor, my goal is to engender a sense of "academic empowerment" in my students and to foster their understanding of, what I believe is the strongest tool we have for understanding the social world, anthropology.

In the United States, anthropology can be broken into into two major sub-disciplines, sociocultural anthropology and archaeology. I have experience in both fields, having studied Human Evolution and Prehistory as an undergraduate and social anthropology as master's student at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom where I graduated with distinction.

It is my hope, that after we begin our session you won't see anthropology as yet another academic chore or even a scholastic bore but rather as a means of disentangling the complex web of social relationships that constitute the world around us.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Po
