Hello, I'm Nathan! I am a junior in college who has been helping students for years with a wide variety of subjects. My experience as a debater and political science major has given me a particularly strong foundation in government, politics, and speech-writing. I am proud to be in the top 10% of active tutors on Wyzant. It is my goal to help you with homework, test prep, or anything else you need!

I'm currently an NDT/CEDA policy debater for the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I was the 2017 Missouri Lincoln Douglas Debate State Champion. I also earned 2nd place as a junior in Lincoln Douglas debate at the National Speech and Debate Association's national tournament. The following year I placed 7th in Lincoln Douglas debate at the same national competition. Recently, I was a double octafinalist at the CEDA Policy national debate tournament. I have coached several Lincoln-Douglas debaters to late elimination rounds at major tournaments. Additionally, I have experience competing and coaching in Public Forum. I have worked with dozens of students on debate, and many have proven their development through tournament success. I encourage you to message me or refer to my Wyzant reviews for more specific referrals.

I received a 36 subscore on the English portion of the ACT. I also earned a 5 on the AP English exam. This expertise has been pragmatically applied to dozens of speeches and essays. I have ample experience breaking down concepts and explaining esoteric ideas.

I received a 5 score on the AP Government and Politics and AP US History exams. Similarly, I've debated topics such as qualified immunity, executive authority, civil liberties, and universal basic income. I'm also majoring in political science!

I want to help you with anything you need! Feel free to message me with any questions; I look forward to hearing from you!
