I have been passionate about education for as long as I can remember. To be able to share my love of lifelong learning with others is truly a joy for me.
I graduated from St. John’s College in Santa Fe with a B.A. in the classical liberal arts. There I studied philosophy, the classics, political science, language and translation, mathematics, the history of science, music theory, theology, and literature (as well as backpacking, cycling, and the fine art of the endo). A consciousness of cross-disciplinary connections is fundamental to my outlook on education and to my teaching style. (Look out: I am well known for my tendency to draw spontaneous Venn diagrams!)
I also have an MAT in secondary education and English from Smith College.
When I'm not analyzing Greek sentences, you'll probably find me in the kitchen, riding my bike, wrangling children, raising foundling creatures, or swimming in a river. Some of my preoccupations are linguistics, lexicography, cognitive science, and anthropology. My favorite Platonic dialogue is the Gorgias; I'm partial to conifers; I'm very fond of English Breakfast; and I make a mean curry. I am working on a book [ostensibly] about salad.
In addition to private coaching/tutoring, I teach Latin and English at the Northfield Mount Hermon School.
