I study children’s literature and medieval literature. I’ve published on medieval fables, and I’ve presented on childhood in medieval British romances; childhood in medieval Hebrew texts; and historical fiction for children.

Non-binary – they/them


I teach composition, medieval literature, and children’s and YA literature at Lehman College, CUNY. I also tutor students from middle school through college. I sometimes blog about my teaching, which you can read here.

My students are primarily home-schooled middle-school and high-school students whom I teach via Skype. I also tutor college students who need help with writing skills. Visit this page for more information on the services I offer.

The Bais Yaakov Project

Together with Naomi Seidman, I run The Bais Yaakov Project, an endeavor dedicated to the history of the Bais Yaakov movement from its beginning in 1917 through today.
