     I have worked at Cheshire Academy for the past six years as an academic coach, Philosophy teacher, Psychology teacher, basketball coach, softball coach, ropes course instructor, Model United Nations advisor, Earth Club advisor and Connecticut Youth Forum advisor. Over the past three years, I have worked for Ivybound and taught an SAT prep course at the Academy. I believe the SAT is a highly coachable test, and I love teaching students the strategies and content required for success on the SAT.
