I graduated Harvard in May 2012. I received an A.B. in History--my studies were all over the place geographically and temporally, but I did the most work in medieval Europe and the Near East. Since graduation, I've lived in the Bay Area, Philadelphia, and now in Boston. I've tutored at every stop, principally in standardized test prep. I also tutored my fellow history undergrads at Harvard, and juvenile offenders in Boston, so I've seen a fairly wide range of students. I can and do tutor a very broad range of subjects, but I'm happiest tutoring history, the GRE, and the SAT--the first because I've loved it since I could read, and the latter two because I think they are highly solvable and I want to make sure students get a chance to learn how to solve them. I'm a firm believer in tutoring in the style of a conversation. Obviously I'm imparting knowledge, but I don't want to lecture and I don't want to be boring, so I try to make it as natural as possible--which does mean I make my fair share of jokes. In my spare time, I'm a huge sports fan (of the Red Sox, Celtics, Broncos, and Canadiens, in that order), an avid PC gamer, a decent squash player, and a baritone.
