Jimmy Biblarz is a JD/PhD student in Sociology & Social Policy at Harvard University.
When he’s not furiously studying (and sometimes when he is), Jimmy can be found drinking copious amounts of Diet Coke (apologies in advance if he brings a six-pack to a lesson), making spreadsheets about almost everything (Where to go to dinner on Friday?), or taking full advantage of the HBO Go archive.
Originally from Los Angeles, Jimmy headed east to attend Harvard College, where he graduated magna cum laude in 2014, majoring in Social Studies and English. As a PhD candidate, Jimmy is interested in the links between equity-focused public policies and children’s chances of upward mobility. His current project, funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and the Inequality and Wealth Concentration Scholarship, traces the rise and fall of racial integration. More generally, he is interested in stratification and inequality that result from issues such as discrimination and urban poverty.
Prospective undergraduates will be in good hands with Jimmy, who has worked as a tutor and advisor in numerous capacities. He has worked as an SAT, ACT, LSAT and GRE tutor, and has tutored students in all academic subjects, from from biochemical engineering to modern poetry. For his work as a resident LGBTQ tutor in Harvard’s Eliot House, he was awarded the John Marquand Award and the Dingman Award for Peer Advising Fellows. Privately, he has advised many students through the college admissions process, helping them secure admission to Harvard, Princeton, and USC Berkeley, to name a few. He also serves as an alumni interviewer for Harvard College.Start Working With Jimmy
