About Ian

A graduate of Stanford and of Teachers College, Columbia University, I have over twenty years of experience teaching college-bound students how to read, think, and write. When I recently left my job at Midland School after two decades, former students, long since college graduates, wrote things like: "Mr. Cummings's English class was where my love of writing was born;" "You have inspired me and countless other students never to be satisfied with work that was less than our best," and "It is not often that a person fresh out of nearly 20 years of private education can look back over their scholastic career, at the many professors, hand-holders, and pointers in the road and say, 'This person was the best.' I am fortunate in that such delineation is easy for me - you were the best there's ever been."

I have taught English, U.S. History (including AP), World History, and Spanish 1 and 2 to students in grades 8-12; I have worked as an essay reader for the US History AP exam, and I can offer SAT prep and college counseling. I sincerely believe that you won't find a more effective instructor.
