Hi. I'm Demetri. I use he/him pronouns. I was raised by English teachers in the wilds of South Minneapolis’ Powderhorn Park neighborhood, setting me up for a lifetime of reading and writing…

I have worked with many High School students to prepare their history day projects, and mentored undergraduate students at the University Minnesota and in the Ivy League who were writing their senior theses projects in U.S. History. I love working one on one with students to create, edit, and focus learning and writing.

I received my BA in history and philosophy from Macalester College, my Masters in history from University College, Dublin (Ireland), and am currently finishing my Ph.D. in U.S. History at the University of Minnesota. I have received fellowships and awards from University of Pennsylvania McNeil Center for Early American Studies, Chicago’s Newberry Library, The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and the Mellon Foundation, among others.

I have been teaching and tutoring at the high school and college level for more than fifteen years. I have taught at the Community College and University Level, including teaching courses with intensive writing elements at the University of Minnesota, presenting groundbreaking research on the use of technology to teach and learn writing, and teaching business writing at the University of Massachusetts, Isenberg School of Business.

I also have helped many students with admissions essays for undergraduate and graduate school as well as internship, fellowship, and scholarship applications.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, seeing live music, making art, finding peace in my yoga practice, biking or otherwise moving around in the beautiful natural settings that Minnesota offers, and travelling to places, near and far, to find new and wonderful things to research and eat.

I have worked with students at all levels from High School to Community College to Public Universities to the Ivy League. I thoroughly enjoy working with stude

He was very easy to talk to and get in contact with. He's very flexible with my schedule, and he is extremely helpful and informative.

He has helped me gain confidence in my writing. He helped me by walking me through creating a guideline to write my paper and take notes on my readings. So that when it came to fully write the paper it was much easier. He puts things into context that made it easy for me understand and follow, and if he could tell I was struggling to understand he would be sure to elaborate until I did. He is very patient, which I appreciate when needing extra help. In the first session he taught me about some new writing techniques to make papers easier for me to do.
