I have a JD and an LLM from Cornell Law School, and a BA in History from Yale. In the past I've worked as a law clerk at the Arizona Supreme Court and as a corporate attorney, but, for the past 3 years, have worked in technology startups. I'm currently the co-founder of a software-as-a-service company based in NYC. I left law to pursue my passion for technology and I've learned a tremendous amount by working in the tech startup space.
I've enjoyed tutoring for many years, including editing essays, papers, and articles, and tutoring students in subjects such as physics, chemistry, math, English, and writing skills. I've also enjoyed helping students prepare for the college or grad school application process. As the recipient of tutoring myself as a high school student, I know firsthand the value that dedicated, passionate, and informed tutors can bring to students. I consider much of my academic success to be the result of great tutoring I've received in the past.
I've enjoyed tutoring recently because it's a welcomed respite from the world of startups, and I love seeing students "click" when they've gotten past a mental roadblock, or discovered they could do something they didn't know they could.
Among other things, I play the bagpipes, and enjoy reading and traveling. I've traveled to almost all 50 US states, and have been to over 20 different countries. I hope to be in touch soon!
