About Loren

I maintain a flexible tutoring schedule as well as fees on a sliding scale. I am committed to offering a personalized tutoring experience that emphasizes the relevance of the subject to the student and current events.

My experience to date indicates that we all learn more and better when using a pragmatic approach that is interactive and references the student's own life experiences.

All too often it is not a student's subjects that determine their level of interest and performance, but rather the format in which those subjects are taught. An effective teacher or tutor must demonstrate how these topics - whether they be civics, chemistry or philosophy - have an immediate effect on their daily lives.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Portland where I was inducted into the Phi Alpha Theta national History Honor Society. Additionally, I received a Master of Arts in International Policy Studies from the Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS), A Graduate School of Middlebury College.

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.

Bible Studies

I graduated from the University of Portland in May of 2000. UP is a member of the religious order known as "Brothers of the Holy Cross." This order also includes its better-known affiliate University of Notre Dame.

The point is this: the University of Portland requires no less than four semesters of philosophy and four semesters of theology for all graduates of its College of Arts and Sciences- myself included. This core curriculum requirement is in fact more demanding than even that of Notre Dame.

Philosophy

I received two and a half years (five semesters) of collegiate philosophy from the University of Portland and University College Cork

Political Science

As an undergraduate university student and history major at the University of Portland- as well as University College Cork- I received political science credits for successful completion of advanced electives, with high marks. Examples of coursework include History of Modern Germany as well as The Soviet Union in World Politics etc.

Additionally, I received an MA degree in International Policy Studies from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies- a top 25 ranked foreign policy degree according to Foreign Policy Magazine. Coursework at this graduate level included American Foreign Policy, Policy Analysis etc.

Religion

I was required to complete no less than four semesters of theology as a component of our undergraduate core curriculum. In fact, this core requirement of the University of Portland College of Arts and Sciences in even more demanding than that of its sister school, Notre Dame. Additionally, fulfillment of these requirements involves a broad spectrum survey of global religions- not just a narrow western or Christian scope.

Social Studies

I received a BA in History from the University of Portland in 2000. Subsequently, I received an MA in International Policy Studies from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in 2003. The combination of these two credentials provides an advanced foundation for social studies- with an emphasis on history and international relations.

Writing

I have 16 years of versatile, professional writing experience. This includes a spectrum of publications that includes everything from short stories and poetry- to market research and strategic communications.

Loren helped my son, a senior in high school, prepare for a philosophy test. He is very flexible with scheduling, knowledgeable about the subject matter, and uses a variety of strategies to help students study. Great tutor!
