Clement grew up in New Jersey, Arizona, Wisconsin and England, where he attended all four years of high school at the American School in London. He continued his education at Columbia University in New York City, where he studied Religion. In his junior year, Clement studied abroad in Ulaanbaatar and Erdenet, Mongolia, where he explored the intersections of religion and copper mining. Senior year, he received a fellowship from his university, which allowed him to return to Mongolia to complete field research for his senior thesis on the same topic.
Clement began his tutoring career in high school, working with younger students on math, reading, and chess. He continued teaching throughout college at summer camps in Amherst, Massachusetts and Oxford, England, where he lectured and guided discussions on literature and philosophy. He has also tutored inmates at Rikers Island studying for the GED. He is enriched and rewarded by teaching and is excited to mentor students at ESM. He specializes in the SAT/ACT, as well as literature, art history, and U.S. and European history.
In his free time, Clement works on art projects within a wide range of media, including writing, photography, videography and music. He also loves to travel; this summer he drove from London to Mongolia in a Volvo hatchback.
