About this tutor

I've been a Lecturer in the Social Sciences at the University of Chicago, and I have an M.A. in Anthropology. My specialization in the historical anthropology of Europe and the Middle East springs from a broad and detailed knowledge of both world history and social-scientific methods of analysis. I teach my students not just the "who," "what," "where," and "when," but also how to identify and analyze the multiple interacting variables that make up the "why" and the "how." Critical engagement of both primary and secondary sources are key to my teaching meathods.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Ask them what precisely they need help with, then find relevant material. I schedule a follow-up discussion session for after the student has read the material. Discussion topics include evaluating sources and discussing possible causative links.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was a Lecturer in the Social Sciences at the University of Chicago (2012-2015) and I have an MA in Anthropology, with a focus on historical anthropology.
