Education has always come easily to me. I attended an elite NYC prep school on full academic scholarship and, as a freshman at the number one college in America (as rated by Forbes and U.S. News World Report), I aced 400-level classes in four different disciplines (Physics, Latin, Art History, and Religion). I have great parents and I was raised well and I have an IQ of 168 and a photographic memory and I'm naturally curious. So it all worked for me. School worked for me, and I loved it.

It doesn't work for everyone. It's not working for you, and that's why you're here. And you know what, it's not your fault that it doesn't work for you. The system we have in America promotes tunnel vision, overburdens teachers, discourages deep, elenchus-style engagement with the material, and, in general, drains otherwise awesome topics of their awesomeness. I've seen it first hand, when I trained with Kaplan, when I supervised summer school students, when I tutored friends or friends of friends all through high school and college.

I think that style of education is bound to collapse under its own tediousness, and in lieu of it I promote a more holistic alternative. I have consulted for an app which uses games to prepare students for the SAT. I have volunteered to lead Adventures in Learning programs for fourth and fifth graders all over the Berkshires, wherein I fused a rich multimedia environment, physical activities, and question-based classes to give children a platform to delve into complex topics like theoretical physics, chess, or Zen Buddhism. I have given Harvard grad students the means to pursue meaningful research in quantum mechanics and general relativity, all through exploring poignant metaphors.

I want to give you even more. Since I graduated from Williams I've been honing my skills - researching the latest cognitive science reports on spaced repetition and vibrant tethering, testing new approaches with educational experts in Cambridge, and publishing my own work through academic presses (Fordham University Press, NYU Press). I'm going through Wyzant because being a freelancer affords me the opportunity to travel (I recently came back from Amsterdam, and I'm planning Rome or Bangkok next), and because I believe I can make the most profound impact 1-on-1. I am currently based in NYC, and am willing to travel anywhere within reason. Time slots are flexible, but if you need to reschedule or cancel I would ask that you please give me a six hour notice or, in the case of morning sessions, to let me know the night before.
