After attending Hunter College High School and the Collegiate School, I went on to Middlebury College, where I successfully juggled the rigors of academics and athletics by majoring in History, minoring in English and American Literatures, and playing on the men's basketball team. Since graduating in 2011, I've taught numerous ACT, SAT, AP US History and World History classes, and developed a teaching style that strives to maximize student outcomes. I also consult startups and nonprofits with their digital products, most recently in Lagos, Narobi, Paris, Hong Kong and Shanghai. I spend most of my free time coding web and mobile apps, reading memoirs and short stories, writing comedy sketches, and winning as many fantasy sports leagues as I can enter.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Learning content or a new skill can take time but shouldn't be stressful. In my sessions, I use the student's interests, humor, and, occasionally, pushups and planks to facilitate the learning process.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

A healthy balance of carrots and sticks. Carrots: taking an interest in them, positive reinforcement, and Snapchat breaks. Sticks: my "disappointed in you" face, pushups, and planks.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

Have them teach me the material slowly and clearly. Always works.
