Educational Consulting

I love learning, and helping others learn. 

I understand learning as a continuous, hybrid, lifelong process, particular to each individual. Effective learning design is:

  • interdisciplinary, multi-modal, performative, and collaborative;

  • ideally inquiry-driven, authentic, tactical, and personal.

As a learning experience designer-facilitator, I seek to:

  • connect authentically to learners' goals;

  • implement best practices;

  • deliver learning (whenever possible) multi-modally, through a combination of live, print, and online platforms;

  • respect intellectual property rights, academic honesty principles, copyright, confidentiality.

Long Island Scholars, a 501(c)(3) I co-founded in Feb., 2019, supports motivated, under-resourced public school students in college and career readiness, access, and success. We coach our Scholars in:

  • Strategic approaches to college admissions: applications, essays, and financial aid 

  • Strategic testing planning and preparation

  • International Baccalaureate planning and preparation

  • Effective writing in multiple genres for high school, college, and career ​
