I'm a professional educator, writer and theater practitioner in the Chicagoland area. I hold a Bachelor's with honors in English from Princeton University, as well as a Master's Degree in Acting from Brown University. In addition to teaching and guest lecturing at schools in New Jersey and Rhode Island, I have worked as a professional playwright and actor since 2013. I'm also a big advocate of hobbies; I love baseball, basketball, music, and games of all kinds (card games, video games, board games, you name it). I specialize in test prep, writing and language arts (including Spanish).

I am a firm believer that achievement is a function of curiosity. Academic success doesn't come from preternatural brilliance. Time and time again, studies have shown that students with good grades and test scores don't necessarily score higher on IQ tests.

This is good news! If success were a function solely of natural intelligence, improvement would be unachievable. But it isn't. There are different factors -- motivation, organization, empathy, discipline -- which are much more important. And, crucially, these are all qualities that people can change and control.

That's where curiosity comes in. Ask yourself this: what do you care the most about? What can't you stop doing, reading about, striving to improve? It could be anything -- a job, a hobby, an artistic practice.

Now think about your approach to it. It probably changes your behavior quite a lot. In fact, you probably structure your life around getting better at it. You read about it every day. You spend time or money on it. You may even meet people or go to conventions to build a community around it. All to satisfy some elusive appetite behind it -- a hunger for more information, a deeper understanding.

That hunger is curiosity. And if you have the hunger, the of achievement -- the organization, the motivation, the discipline -- needs only a small amount of guidance to fall naturally into place.

And here's the key: curiosity, unlike intelligence, can be practiced.

How to implement this practice differs for every student, and tailoring that process is the cornerstone of my pedagogy. Different things pique the curiosity of different people, and finding out each student's individual way into the material is paramount.

So if one of my subjects is something that you or your student loves, or hates, or can't figure out how to care about, I may be a good fit for you. I'm very much looking forward to our time together.
