Working Smarter and harder (minus the stress ;).

Neuroscience PhD (MIT) with a focus not on simple recitation of material, but on understanding of it.

I take joy in making material feel natural instead of alien. And I have special facility with 'debugging' problem areas that aren't making sense. (9/10 times it's because your brain learned a simple, *almost* true rule that sabotages understanding. I like to suss out those broken rules and fix them. :)

About me:

In addition to a background in learning theory (via doctorate in neuroscience) I have a great deal of experience teaching and tutoring a diverse body: from volunteer work with under privileged youth, to teaching MIT and Harvard undergraduate and graduate students, to enableing professors and post-docs to transition between fields, and even to coaching wrestling.

My own hobbies/passions include both the mental and physical and include rock climbing, weight lifting, Brazilian jiu jitsu, theoretical computer science ("mathematical epistemology"), modern statistics, and economics and political theory. And I try to catch as much music and art with friends as a I reasonably can along the way. ;)
