After graduating magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania in 2011 with a B.A. in Political Science, Syd pursued public policy research as a German Academic Exchange (DAAD) Scholar and Transatlantic Fellow in Berlin from 2011-2014, before completing a dual-degree masters in Urban Policy at the Paris Institute for Political Studies and the London School of Economics from 2015-2016. Syd’s background in social, racial and eco-justice policy-based work laid a foundational bedrock for his creative interests. Syd started his PhD in Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania in 2018 but realized that storytelling through film and television was more effective to share stories and connect people across continents, cultures and time. A voracious traveler, Syd is fluent in French and proficient in German. Syd is passionate about sharing his successes in standardized tests for college and graduate schools and help students feel confident in their approach to learning and allow them to achieve their best scores. He works collaboratively with students to develop a plan that best suits their needs for their goals and to measure progress along the way. Syd recognizes that each student’s needs are different and that each student’s plans should be fitted accordingly.

When Syd isn’t tutoring, you can find him teaching amateur boxing, a sport he picked up while living in Germany!
