Political science is a challenging discipline, incorporating knowledge and theory from many different academic spheres. Rather than just mastering one discipline, students must connect ideas from history, economics, sociology and philosophy. That’s why our political science tutors are doctoral candidates and PhDs, professionals with Master’s degrees, or college graduates with exceptional teaching experience. In all tutorials, we take a highly structured and personalized approach to ensure that our students receive the most effective and comprehensive tutoring available. And if you’re interested in support for a course that you don’t see listed here, reach out to us! No topic is too advanced or too niche for our team.
“I’ve worked with Aaron for three years, and he’s one of the best coaches I’ve had. He’s flexible and has always sent back edits with record speed. Aaron’s dedication further distinguishes him as a tutor; he always keeps the big picture in mind, and fully grasps the relevant readings to ensure the quality of the final draft. I’ve improved my writing throughout my time with Aaron, and cannot recommend him enough.”
“Working with Aaron is an absolute delight. He gives thorough feedback and brings his expertise to bear when suggesting new or deeper avenues for research. He is flexible and always finds time to be available, giving his full attention in sessions. You will grow to be a better student and learner by working with Aaron. I would highly recommend working with him!”
“Working with Aaron was one of the best experiences I've had. He's so supportive in every stage of the process, from preliminary planning and outlines to the final draft. Aaron will give you thorough feedback on every draft you send. He genuinely invests himself, and really cares about the end product. I know I wouldn't have done as well as I did in the class without his help.”
