I am a life-long proponent of education and learning. I graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. in philosophy. After working for a few years, including in book publishing, I returned to school and completed my M.A. in history at the University of California, Berkeley. While there, I taught history and philosophy classes to undergraduates. I also taught Standardized Test Prep (SAT and GRE) for Summit Tutors and Kaplan.

I took a break from school and moved to Europe (Germany). I loved it so much that I decided to continue my education on that side of the Atlantic.In fact, I completed my PhD in history from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland in 2015. As you can see, I practice what I preach about education :)

While I tutor a number of subjects, I am most passionate about helping students learn how to improve their reading (Literature) and writing (English), as well as their historical knowledge (History). I also have a good track record helping students dramatically improve their SAT scores and their college application essays.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, cooking (a new hobby), going to movies, and seeing live music. I love watching the World Cup and Euro soccer tournaments as well.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

The aphorism inscribed in stone at the Oracle of Delphi in ancient Greece, “Know Thyself,” is still the most powerful proclamation of the importance of education.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

The key to becoming an independent learner is two-fold: (1) Learning and absorbing the fundamentals of how to learn and (2) Seeing how learning can be both fun and extraordinarily useful in everything we do.
