Ezra grew up in San Francisco, and still misses the fog and steep hills. As an undergraduate at Harvard, Ezra majored in Social Studies (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) and wrote his thesis about senior homes in Beijing. Upon graduating, Ezra was awarded the Trustman Traveling Fellowship, which funds a year of purposeful travel. He moved to Peru to study the Chinese diaspora and lived with a Chinese Peruvian family in Lima. Ezra has studied Chinese brush painting and calligraphy for over fifteen years. While in Peru, he worked on Chinese style paintings of Peruvian life at two artist residencies, one in the Andes, and another in the Amazon. After returning from Peru, Ezra was named Artist-in-Residence at the Signet Society at Harvard. Now back in Cambridge, Ezra is building on the writing and painting he did to finish a book about the Chinese diaspora in Peru.
Ezra has experience tutoring students in San Francisco in a wide range of subjects, including SAT test prep, math, essay writing and editing for English, history and college applications, Spanish, and Mandarin. He has worked with students with many different learning styles, including students with dyslexia and ADHD. As a high school student, Ezra scored a 2400 on the SAT and is excited to share his expertise with students.
When he’s not tutoring or working on his book, Ezra enjoys performing improv comedy, coxswaining, interviewing the elderly for oral history projects, and cooking.
