PhD student giving lessons in international relations, political science and history in Madison, WI

Methodology

I teach mainly high-school and college students. I prefer short, frequent visits (one hour or less at least once a week), and start each teaching relationship by establishing the student's goals and expectations. We then set smaller goals which we will achieve each week to progress toward the overall learning goals.

Background

I have a dual bachelor's degree in Political Science and Economics and a Master's Degree in Political Science. I am a PhD student studying International Relations. I have been tutoring students on college test prep for 6 years. My students showed marked improvement in ACT and GRE scores and were thrilled with their results.

I was David’s roommate in college, he is THE smartest guy I know, but even better is he can explain things in a way that is easy to understand. He is incredibly patient and does a fantastic job at simplifying complex ideas so they are easily understood. I highly recommend David if you are looking for a personal tutor. He is absolutely worth every penny. Invest in yourself and get David on your side. You deserve the best and he can deliver!

David is one of the smartest people I know! If I wanted a tutor, I would trust David every single time. Every time I have asked him a question, he has helped me understand in a way that made me want to learn more! He is kind, fun, and loves helping people become the best version of themselves.
