Personal Statement

Forrest is a lifelong learner, an educator, and a faculty member in the math department at a prestigious high school in Somerset, NJ. Having worked with high school and college students for many years, he has experience teaching algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, writing, and reading comprehension. Forrest believes that students learn best when they discover new knowledge through persistent questioning and active participation. As a teacher and tutor, two of his greatest joys are helping students solve challenging problems and guiding them to view the world in new ways – with the aim of leading students to achieve their highest aspirations. Forrest holds a master’s degree in education policy and management from Harvard University and a bachelor’s degree in mathematics education from North Carolina State University. Before teaching in an independent school, he worked as a researcher at a Washington, DC think tank and held a public policy fellowship at the U.S. Department of Education. In his free time, he enjoys running long distances, reading literature and philosophy, and adventuring out to experience different cultures.
