Originally from the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Isaac has jumped up and down the northeast. After finishing high school at Saint Albans in Washington, D.C., Isaac completed his undergraduate work at Yale University, graduating cum laude with a degree in Russian and east European studies. Throughout college, Isaac worked nights as a paramedic in neighboring Bridgeport and New Haven, convincing him that medicine and public health were for him. He completed his Masters of Public Health in Health Policy and Global Health at the Yale School of Public Health, while simultaneously doing field work in Russia. Isaac returned to New York to complete medical school at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He spent a scholarly year during medical school as a Paul Farmer Fellow at Harvard’s Program from Global Surgery and Social Change. He is now in Boston as a resident in otolaryngology - head and neck surgery at Harvard / Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary.
Since entering Yale, Isaac has never stopped teaching. He was the lead instructor of Yale’s Emergency Medical Technician class for five years, as well as serving as a Teaching Assistant for Professor Marci Shore’s European Intellectual History since Nietzsche. Finally, Isaac has tutored students in NYC, Boston, and around the world (middle school up through graduate school) one-on-one for years. At Cambridge Coaching, he leans on his varied background to tutor not just science (Physics, Chemistry, and Biology) and math, but also the humanities. Moreover, he serves all aspects of admissions (from SSAT, SAT, ACT, college admissions, and medical school admissions strategy and writing).
With all of his free time, Isaac enjoys filling the position of goalkeeper on numerous soccer teams throughout the city.
