Logan grew up on a horse ranch in Issaquah, Washington. His love for swimming and for the outdoors brought him to Dartmouth College, where he captained his varsity swim team and led Dartmouth’s hunting and fishing club. His research on sleep disorders and hypertension named him a James O. Freedman Presidential Scholar. After graduation, Logan traveled to Nepal, where he worked on several medical service projects. Logan is currently an MD candidate at Harvard Medical School and president of Harvard’s Global Surgery Student Association. As such, you will most often find him chained to a desk in Harvard’s medical library, studying.
Logan has taught in a variety of different capacities. He tutored many younger students at Dartmouth, primarily in Neuroscience/Psychology, Chemistry, and Biology. He mentored his residence hall as an undergraduate advisor, working with residents through academic, social, and emotional difficulties. He has also tutored high school and middle school students. Additionally, Logan’s often draws upon the instructional skills he honed as a swim instructor and a professional wilderness trip leader (leading students aged 15-22 in many US states including arctic Alaska, as well as to Kenya, Tanzania, and up Mount Kilimanjaro) to discover and adapt to the learning styles of each of his students. Logan strongly believes that every student is unique, and no single teaching strategy will work for everyone.
When Logan is able to escape his chains, he loves to swim, compete in triathlons, and volunteer his time to various medical pursuits (currently, for Dana Farber’s Pan Mass Challenge!). He has weaknesses for black labs, golden retrievers, and dark chocolate.
