I hold a B.A. in Philosophy from Grinnell College, where I also studied History, Classics, and German. I will enroll in law school in the fall of 2017, and have recently been accepted to several top law schools. I primarily tutor Latin, German, Philosophy, the LSAT, the verbal and written sections of the SAT and PSAT, as well as AP and SAT tests in the fields of History or English. Additionally, I am happy to assist with college application essays, or help college students interested in applying to law school. Having previously worked as a T.A. in philosophy, I am aware that tutoring can involve complex ideas. I therefore place a premium upon clarity and precision: difficult ideas are best understood when put in simple terms. In my free time I like to read novels, listen to classical music, and jog.
