"Every curriculum I design aims to develop college level reading and writing skills. In my experience I've found that students entering college are often unprepared for the critical thinking and focused reading that college courses demand. Part of my approach to helping these students is to show them how to articulate their own ideas, and embrace the experience of reading as an opportunity to respond to the text. I hope to bring these methods to my work at Berkeley2 so that my students here can transition successfully from the high school model to the college model with ease."
He writes plays and have even had some of his work produced on stage.
