About Me

I have spent the past ten years teaching Social Studies at one of the top high schools in Essex County, NJ. Before I began teaching I had a variety of experiences, from working as an Economist at the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, to earning a Masters Degree in Political Science at Princeton University. Since entering the teaching profession, I have taught a variety of classes, from Economics to US History, to students of all ability levels. I have also been tutoring middle and high school students for many years, teaching both study skills and a variety of subjects to students. I currently live in Bridgewater, NJ with my wife and son.

My Tutoring Philosophy

I consider tutoring to be an extension of my every day teaching, except I get to work one on one with students instead of twenty to twenty five at a time. I will begin by assessing the needs of your child, discussing the goals of our tutoring sessions ahead of time. This will allow me to arrive at the tutoring session with a strategy or "lesson plan" for your child. During each session, like in my teaching, I will check for your child's understanding of the material they are learning.

Qualifications:

  • Ten Years Teaching Social Studies at Top NJ High School
  • Masters Degree in Teaching
  • Princeton University Graduate

Why Choose Me Over Other Tutors?

  • Sessions begin by assessing your child and tailoring session to their needs
  • Experience teaching all levels, including AP
  • I am not just a tutor. I am in the classroom every day-I understand what teachers are looking for!
