I was born in London and grew up in England. After graduating from Bristol University with a degree in History and History of Art, I moved to the U.S. My interests shifted to teaching, and I did my graduate work at Teachers College, Columbia University. I lived for many years in New York City, taught at The Brearley School, and worked in educational software design. In 2001, I moved to Vermont, where my husband and I homeschooled our son, David. David attended MIT as an undergraduate and then spent a Fulbright Scholarship year in Germany. He is currently back at MIT as a PhD student in Applied Mathematics.
I have worked with a number of Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth (CTY) families and given talks for CTY's Pathways to College seminars. I also advise families of Davidson Young Scholars. Additionally, I am an educational consultant for Boston University and work extensively with the Program in Mathematics for Young Scientists (PROMYS), a mathematics summer program for very strongly motivated high schoolers and with PROMYS Europe at the University of Oxford.
Please feel free to email or call me simply to discuss what a private educational consultant does, or how I might be able to help your family. There's no obligation or cost for such inquiries.
