I want to help you learn in a way that makes sense for you.
Curriculum Concierge is a service to take you through the process of designing and implementing a bespoke curriculum. It’s a hybrid of coaching, tutoring, and mentoring, wherein I’ll help you explore your goals, plot your learning path, and offer guidance along the way.
The core ideas behind this are that you learn best when 1) you have a curriculum that matches your interests and learning style, and 2) you have individual encouragement and guidance along the way.
Together, we’ll develop a path of study that feels like an extension of your true self, rather than something externally imposed. You can learn what you want to, and how you want to, not because you have to — though I will provide some external pressure to give you any necessary push!
How does this work?
This will be different for everyone because it’s tailored just for you, but there are some basics we’ll do to get started:
- First, we’ll have a meeting to assess your goals, interests, preferred learning styles, and how we can best work together
- Then I’ll take a few days to come up with a proposed starting point both for an approach I think would work well for you, and some learning materials (books, websites, project ideas, etc.) that will take you an an interesting and fruitful direction
- After that, we can meet (roughly) 1-2 times each month, to track your progress, evaluate goals (and set new ones), continue building your curriculum, make potentially helpful changes, and keep you motivated
Who is this for?
If you have something you really want to learn, but are stuck, or uncertain, or feel like you could be doing more, or simply want to learn more effectively, we should talk! This may not be a good fit if you’re purely looking to learn a narrow set of professional skills, or aren’t passionate and excited about creating a personalized learning path, but I think this service could be useful to people in a wide variety of different situations.
Maybe you’re about to start college and need help figuring out what to major in. Maybe you’re looking to harness your passions in a more fulfilling way. Maybe you’re thinking of making a big transition that would require learning new things. If you think that you could benefit from something like this, please get in touch!
Okay, let’s get started.
Right now I have time to take on a small handful of students for a trial, free of charge, as I develop this service. Let me know if you’re interested!
NOTE: For a limited time only, I’m offering this service to a handful of people completely free. This will take considerable time and effort on my part, so I can probably take on only 5-10 students at once, but I’m opening it up for a trial as I test out what works.
The deal here is simple: in exchange for a substantial amount of one-on-one conversation, custom research, and individualized guidance I’ll provide as we develop your custom curriculum and learning path, I’ll expect you to commit at least a few hours a week to this, and help me with feedback on how it’s going and how I can improve the service. If this sounds good, please get in touch, and I’ll get back to you soon to schedule an introductory meeting.
If you live in NYC, I’d love to meet in person. If you’re not in New York, shoot me an email, I’ll contact you to schedule a Skype session sometime in the next week or two, and we can go from there!
