Learning & 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

  • inquiry-driven, authentic, personal.

As a lifelong learning facilitator, I seek to:

  • connect authentically to learners' goals

  • implement best practices

  • deliver learning (when 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 high school students

(in Nassau and Suffolk Counties in New York, from families under $125,000 AGI)

in college and career readiness, access, and success.

Scholars receive coaching and consulting 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, career.
