Lesson Details

Writing

Levels Taught:
Middle School, High School, College

In 2004 I graduated from Princeton University magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa (top 10% by GPA) with a BA in English Literature, receiving the Comprehensive Prize in English, an award essentially recognizing the top writer of what has often been ranked the #1 university in the nation. While at Princeton I also served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Princeton Spectator newspaper for two years.

I then moved to Hollywood, where for 2 years I served as James Cameron's assistant during the writing and pre-production of Avatar, and also wrote my own screenplay, entitled Wild Child (currently in development).

I then changed course and spent 2 years taking all of the pre-med requirements to be able to apply to and then enroll in a dual MD/MBA degree (Medicine/Business) at UCLA. Now that I have completed the dual degree, I am currently writing a book to be published next year.

Since learning of it in high school, Strunk & White's The Elements of Style has truly been my secret weapon, its 11 "elementary principles of composition" ("use the active voice," "omit needless words," etc.) ensuring that I never received below an A on any written assignment during high school, Princeton, or graduate school.

These 11 rules of writing serve as the foundation of both my writing and teaching, and will be used to strengthen students' own work.

In 2004 I graduated from Princeton University magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa (top 10% GPA) with a BA in English Literature, receiving the Comprehensive Prize in English, an award recognizing the top writer of the English Department of what was ranked as the #1 university in the country that year.

I also served as Editor-in-Chief of the Princeton Spectator newspaper for two years.

I then moved to Los Angeles and served as James Cameron's assistant during the writing and pre-production of Avatar, also writing a screenplay myself, entitled Wild Child (currently in development).

Since discovering it in my high school English class, Strunk & White's classic writing style manual The Elements of Style has truly been my secret weapon, its 11 "Elementary Principles of Composition" ensuring that I never received below an A- on any written assignment during high school or college, allowing me to graduate from Princeton with a 3.90 overall GPA and a 3.97 in the English Department.

Strunk & White's 11 simple but essential writing rules will serve as the basis of our lessons, in which we will apply them to students' work in order to cement these habits through active application.
