About Grant

I love to teach and to help students improve. I am particularly passionate about helping students perform at an elite level.

I recently received my J.D. from Columbia Law School where I was named a James Kent Scholar. I also served as an Editor of the Columbia Law Review.

I have a B.A., cum laude with Distinction in Political Science from Yale University. During college, I won the National, North American, Harvard, and Oxford debate championships.

After college, I was an Associate for two years at Bridgewater Associates. I have also worked as a Law Clerk at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz in New York, NY and at Alcoa, Inc. in Pittsburgh, PA.

I have extensive experience with teaching and tutoring. For the last four years, I have privately coached debaters at Columbia. Before that, I coached the debate teams at Yale and Choate Rosemary Hall. During the time I coached Yale, the team was ranked first in the nation and the world. I coached the Choate team to its first appearance at the World Championships. I have experience coaching the following debate formats: Lincoln-Douglas (LD), Public Form (PF), Parliamentary, and Student Congress.

Some subject-specific experience is listed below.

English: I have extensive experience with writing, including the AP English Writing and English Literature exams. Received 5's on both AP exams.

SAT: I have a perfect score on the verbal and writing sections

US Govt and Politics: I have a Political Science degree from Yale: extensive knowledge of civics. I received a 5 on the AP US Gov't and Politics Exam.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

As a teacher/coach, I have helped many students successfully navigate the college admissions process. As a result, I have extensive experience with critiquing admissions essays and reviewing applications. As an undergraduate at Yale, I was a counselor for years at a high school feeder program run by the International Security Studies faculty.

Political Science

I have a B.A. from Yale with Distinction in Political Science. I studied U.S. and International Politics extensively as an undergraduate and I have continued to study political science after college in law school. My senior thesis, which earned distinction in the major, studied elections in authoritarian regimes.

Public Speaking

I have past experience both as a coach and as a public speaker. I currently coach the Columbia University Debate team. Prior to that, I coached the Yale Debate Association and the debate team at Choate Rosemary Hall. As an undergraduate, I personally won the North American, National, Harvard, and Oxford Debating Championships.

Social Studies

I have a degree cum laude from Yale with distinction in Political Science. My work as an undergraduate focused extensively on American government and politics. I have experience teaching on civics and social studies as a debate coach both at the secondary school and collegiate levels.

Study Skills

I have extensive experience with tutoring and teaching study skills. I was a peer tutor in college and high school and learned advance methods for organizing work and improving study habits.
