ACADEMIC COACH

Hi, I’m Laurence! I recently graduated from the University of British Columbia with a master’s degree in Political Science. During graduate school I also worked as a Teaching Assistant and tutor for undergraduate students. I also have a bachelor’s in History from the University of Aberdeen where I wrote my dissertation on the origins of WWI. This paper won the university prize for best history dissertation and is currently scheduled for publication.

I grew up in South-Asia, East-Africa, and Germany, and spent all my early years in the international school system and can identify with third-culture-kid (TCKs) challenges and unique perspectives.

Besides history and politics, I specialize in academic writing, IB preparation, productivity and study habits, organizational skills, and how to thrive in the British and Canadian university systems.

I am German-American; I speak English and German.
