 David Adler Private Tutor in Central London & North London

I am a recent graduate of the University of Oxford, where I received a first-class MPhil in Politics. At Oxford, I was a Rhodes Scholar at New College, and I served as Tutor in politics at Keble College. Prior to my arrival in the United Kingdom, I attended Brown University, where I double-majored in history and economics, graduating Phi Beta Kappa. Following graduation in 2014, I spent a year as a Fulbright Scholar at the Colegio de Mexico in Mexico City. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, I am fluent in both American and British education systems — and have a passion for education, more broadly. My areas of expertise are maths, history, Spanish, College Counselling and preparation across the board.

My Tutoring & Teaching Experience

My tutoring experience began in high school, where I directed a science education program for middle school students ages 11 to 13. At Brown University, I expanded on this early interest in tutoring both off- and on-campus. Off campus, I coordinated an education program at a Providence city middle school, geared at helping under-performing students get back on track with their academic work. On campus, I became a head fellow in Brown's Writing Fellows Program, offering one-on-one editorial mentorship to first-year undergraduates across a wide array of classes — from biology to engineering to economics. In my senior year, I became the Assistant Director of the Writing Fellows Program, overseeing all 62 tutors in the program. At Oxford, I was hired by Keble College as a Tutor for politics, delivering weekly tutorials to both British and non-British students.

My Approach to Tutoring

My approach to tutoring is tailored to the needs of the individual student. I encourage students to find their own ways to solutions, which I believe is essential to building confidence, developing style, and finding a voice in their work. My role is to help guide them there — offering tools, tricks, and strategies to make this process more efficient (reducing time) and more effective (reducing errors). My style is relaxed but rigorous.
