I have taught physics at the San Francisco Hebrew Academy and my students have matriculated to Berkeley, Carnegie Melon, UCLA, and Stanford among others. I have worked as an aquatic biologist in the Yellowstone National Park, and as an Environmental Health volunteer in Panama.
I am multicultural, bilingual, accommodating and kind. Years of teaching experience, miles of travel, and countless volunteer hours are certain to inspire students. I have a gift for kindling intellect, for harnessing the spark of genius and turning it into real achievement.
Sometimes it's little things: I have discovered that eating a piece of fruit right before a big test can raise scores upwards of ten percent. That a scholar who learns to view the SAT as if it were a parlor game can overcome anxiety. That mastery of dimensional analysis is worth a full point on an AP exam and spot in an elite university.
I live with my wife in Park Slope. My recent wedding was featured in the New York Times.
