About Caleb

Hi there!

As a medical student at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, I put my time into improving the lives of patients. This is something I love; the feeling of walking out of an encounter knowing that a patient feels a little safer, a little more hopeful, because of me is absolutely irreplaceable. I love to tutor for the same reason.

A little about me: I majored in cognitive neuroscience at Brown University, graduating in 2010 -- and promptly abandoning academia to work as a chef in various kitchens and a magazine. While I loved this work, I found that it wasn't what I wanted to devote my life to, and so I went into research on Parkinson's Disease at Yale University. After several years there I applied to medical school, and am now happily past my first year. I would love to tutor you or your child in anything from neuroscience to number theory.

I am particularly strong in medical and biological sciences, but I also read and write constantly. I currently have one published book to my name, and my computer is stuffed with unshared works. I provide excellent guidance on academic and application essays; I promise that you will have a more convincing piece once I'm done.

I can't wait to get starting teaching you or your loved ones. I hope to hear from you soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Cooking

I have worked as a professional chef at an upscale vegan restaurant in center city Philadelphia. I have also interned at America's Test Kitchen -- the company that produces the bimonthly publication "Cook's Illustrated" -- and at Alinea, the restaurant in Chicago recently rated #1 in North America by an international restaurateur's association.

In addition to these more formal settings, I've worked all over the food world: at farmer's markets, in a local cheese factory, in a nationally-recognized cheese shop.

Bottom line? I love food and cooking. Even more than that, I love sharing food and cooking with others. I'd love to share it with you!
