Larch, Ph.D.

Personal Statement

Larch is pleased to collaborate with Embrace Tutoring and Educational Services as it provides academic and personal support to students in the context of the schools students attend. Larch has taught and administered in independent secondary schools for over twenty-five years with adjunct appointments in post-secondary institutions. Retired from the English Chair position at Morristown-Beard School, Larch helps students to become engaged learners as we address the unique challenges and opportunities of each student. Larch has worked extensively with diverse models of instruction that provide students with a tool-kit of skills that help them develop confidence as critical and creative thinkers. He also uses his knowledge of cognitive research to maximize students’ awareness of how they learn. As an educator who has reflected deeply on best practices in the classroom, Larch is pleased to share insights with colleagues as well as students, helping all to develop their distinctive approaches to teaching and learning. Larch has also specialized on the integration of technology within the learning process; when appropriate, he uses video-conferencing to enhance student learning. Outside the classroom, Larch enjoys opera and ballet as well as sailing off the coast of Maine.
