Bio

I have a BFA and MFA from Emerson College, which consistently ranks highly as one of the top programs in the country, and I just received my MA in Theater Studies from UCSB, where I occasionally lecture.

I have been a classroom teacher for over ten years (English/History/Math) in both NYC and LA, including a three-year stint teaching English and Writing at a residential treatment center in Upstate NY, where I worked with students with emotional and physical disabilities, including ADHD,...

I have a BFA and MFA from Emerson College, which consistently ranks highly as one of the top programs in the country, and I just received my MA in Theater Studies from UCSB, where I occasionally lecture.

I have been a classroom teacher for over ten years (English/History/Math) in both NYC and LA, including a three-year stint teaching English and Writing at a residential treatment center in Upstate NY, where I worked with students with emotional and physical disabilities, including ADHD, Autism spectrum,and ODD.

I have a positive attitude toward teaching, using humor and a variety of strategies to help students achieve and succeed. I have two school-aged children (including a son with mild Autism), and my wife works at Northwestern, so I have a great deal of flexibility in my schedule.

Teaching has been increasingly difficult for teachers like myself who prefer a one-on-one relationship with students. Tutoring and having a student get a concept and be able to apply it - that's why I tutor.

I have ten years experience teaching college prep English to all sorts of students - young people in Residential Treatment Centers, urban settings, traditional classrooms and private school. My own academic background directly addressed these topics.

I have taught students at all levels, and completed several courses in preparing students for such tests: teaching young people how to approach an exam that employs so many subjects. I like to turn students thinking of themselves as test-takers, and how to think like test-makers.

I taught History at a Private School, and it was my favorite subject, and have become a History geek. I know most SAT History exams focus on the Colonial Period, the American Revolution and the Civil War - each of which are my favorite topics.

Learning is more than just rote memorization of facts; you can buy a set of notecards if that's what you're looking for. If you're more inclined to sitting down and having fun getting the facts right, send me a message here on WyzAnt.
