After graduating in the top 5% of his class from Northport High School in New York, Ted attended Tulane University where he majored in Political Science and minored in English.
Ted played competitive ice hockey on all-Long Island select teams before playing for his high school team. Ted played tournaments in Lake Placid, home of the 1980 Winter Olympics. The spirit of the Olympics encouraged him to study politics because of the historical significance surrounding those particular Olympic games. Ted won academic scholarships from both the Suffolk County Ice Hockey League and his high school team organization, which helped him attend Tulane.
Ted brought his leadership abilities and winning mentality from athletics to the classroom, where he challenged students in post-Katrina New Orleans by working as a Teaching Assistant for AP English and AP Statistics classes in public high schools. He served as a tour guide for the office of admissions at Tulane and has led student panels to prospective students and their families. Ted also enjoys playing basketball and has led camps, clinics, and training programs for aspiring players.
Ted tutors in SAT, ACT, US history, US government and politics, world history, comparative politics, algebra, trigonometry, geometry, statistics, Spanish and chemistry.
Favorite hobby: seeing live music.
