Terry is from revolutionary Lexington, Massachusetts, where he grew up marching in parades as a minuteman until he was old enough to think better of it. He attended Amherst College, where he graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with degrees in English and French. His thesis on medieval French verse earned him the Frederick King Turgeon Prize for outstanding work in the field. After Amherst, he headed across the pond to the University of Cambridge, where he received an M.Phil. in European literature and culture as a Gates Cambridge Scholar. Currently, Terry is pursuing a PhD in French language and literature at NYU.

Terry has been working with students since his college days, where he was a peer tutor in French at Amherst, taught English as a foreign language, and led cultural immersion trips across Europe. In Cambridge, he developed and led summer literature courses for high school students. Most recently, he’s worked as a private tutor for a family of three children in the French Caribbean, responsible for all aspects of the children’s schooling, and is now thrilled to continue working with students in New York.

In his free time, Terry is an avid skier and world capital memorizer.
