I have been tutoring and teaching for over 25 years in the fields of history, English, sociology, psychology, philosophy, ESL, cultural studies, music history and critical thinking. I am a faculty member in Bard College's prestigious Language and Thinking program. I hold Master's degrees in Sociology and History and a dual Doctorate in Psychology and Critical Theory, among other degrees and certifications. I have published in a wide variety of syndicated periodicals and academic journals in both the U.S. and am about to publish with a major academic press. I love teaching and tutoring more than anything in the world because I understand that it is a two-way street. Learning from my students as they begin to connect the dots and gain confidence in areas that had seemed beyond their reach is the most rewarding experience a teacher can have. My strength lies in my ability to help my students synthesize and contextualize their own lived experience in a highly interdisciplinary fashion so that the subject they are studying becomes something organically their own, a place from which they can draw connections to larger issues across a variety of disciplines.

I am a working historian and teacher of the philosophy of history. I an the editor and co-publisher of an important book on the Holocaust that is coming out with Cambridge University Press and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum this spring.

My area of specialty is the study of music in the Holocaust, and I have a book forthcoming—Songs in the Wilderness: Music in the Holocaust and the Betrayal of "Bildung." I have presented programs on the social and cultural history of music in the development of identity and have curated music programs at Bard College, in Prague, and in New York City.

Please let me hear from you. Through the techniques I have employed in tutoring, teaching, and training other teachers across 25 years, I believe we can expand your abilities not only in the disciplines in which you feel you need help, but also in every area of your academic life.

I look forward to working with you!
