I set high standards for my students and provide constructive feedback and support at every point along the way. I believe in participatory learning where students take responsibility for the results they want to achieve while I coach, guide and support them throughout their learning process.
In addition to teaching and tutoring, I've worked for a broad array of public and civic organizations in a variety of locations -- including city and state government, the nonprofit sector and as a consultant. I've taught at three universities and provided one-on-one tutoring and coaching to numerous students as well. My education includes a Masters in Pubic Administration from the Harvard Kennedy School.
