I am a 5+ year high school debate coach with years of experience as a tutor and in educational support. I am currently the head debate coach at Edina High School in Minnesota and I am also a 3rd year faculty member at Michigan State University's Spartan Debate Institute.

My core educational belief is that students learn best when interested and engaged in their material as well as when they are comfortable to express what they are thinking about such material. If you're considering me as a tutor, I would say to ask yourself if motivation, engagement, interest and/or fear of expression are the problem areas that your child is struggling with.

I am a magna cum laude graduate from Kalamazoo College. My major was philosophy with a concentration in critical theory. During my time in college, I won the department prize in philosophy and the Hodge Memorial prize upon graduation, awarded for graduating at the top of my class in philosophy. I have worked with students on college-level writing and idea expression at both Kalamazoo College and Normandale Community College in Minneapolis.

I have also worked with adults preparing for the GED test.

As a high school debate coach, I spend a lot of time instructing students to properly organize the information they will utilize in debate. I consistently work with students on finding effective methods of note-taking. A lot of my time is spent teaching students to better dissect the main points of articles, books and arguments so they may be utilized as supporting evidence. Most importantly, I work with my students to develop lasting study habits and approaches to school work.

Social Studies

I coach high school policy format debate. As policy format debate is expected to be a simulation of the governmental policy making procedure I have a working understanding of many aspects of social studies. Though my major in college was philosophy, I have spent a good deal of time working with how philosophy changes over time. Studying these shifts leads one from the ideas to their utilization in the world. Relevant college courses: Theories of Society and Culture, Socialisms and Capitalisms, Intro to Anthropology, Native American Literatures, 19th Century Philosophy, Global Ethics and General Psychology. Also, I used to joke that I graduated high school with a major in social studies. In high school I took and passed the following social studies AP tests with fives and fours: AP US History, AP World History, AP European History, AP Microeconomics, AP Macroeconomics, AP US Government and AP Comparative Government.
