As a top-performing student of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) at Oxford, I bring an unmatched level of dedication and academic rigour to the tutoring of my students. Paired with a strong quantitative background honed through years of self-education, I am able to teach a wide range of subjects from areas of the humanities I've mastered in my degree to advanced mathematics and economics. I bring a unique style to tutoring that emphasizes problem-solving and concept mastery over bland run-throughs of the material - this comes from my own background of being completely self-educated, with no formal schooling prior to receiving an offer from Oxford. And I will work my hardest to ensure that your child has the best shot at his or her dream.

How would you describe your teaching style?

Problem-oriented: you learn by doing. Expert back-and-forth over the broader conceptual framework can help set the stage, but it is solving problems that consolidates progress.

What qualifications do you have?

Top-ranking student of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Oxford. Self-taught prior to university: earned 5s in AP Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Statistics, and Calculus BC. 35 in the ACT at age 14. 800 in SAT Mathematics II.

Tell us about your experience...

Tutored for the SAT back in America, which was my first brush with teaching. The personal joy I experienced as I boosted my students by hundreds of points was immense, and I decided that I had a great love for teaching right then and there. Started a chess club where I was the main instructor as well.

What locations do you tutor in?

I will travel in Oxfordshire, but also willing to instruct online.

What is your personal message to students?

These are challenging times. It can be really hard to focus with all these distractions around us, but if you put your nose to the grindstone and work through this, you'll be incredibly well-placed to succeed in life. And I will be happy to help you achieve your aims.
