Be a Part of our Journey

We've loved every minute of it!

Don't just know - Think.

We are in the business of developing thinkers, not "knowers." Our success is based upon the philosophy, that if we teach each student to not focus exclusively on the content of the course, but also on the skills associated with reasoning through a solution, positive results come at a higher rate. We make sure our students are not just "told the answer," but rather are steered in a direction so that they are the ones who figure out solutions.

Scott Moerschbacher

Scott Moerschbacher is the owner and founder of Left Brains Educational Consulting. Since 2012, he has worked with students in physics and math in the greater Washington DC metro area. He earned a PhD from The George Washington University and worked as a university professor for eight years before making the transition to high school physics teacher and private tutor.

Erin Smith

Erin Smith fell in love with teaching as a college chemistry tutor. She earned a PhD from Purdue University in inorganic chemistry where she taught and tutored undergraduate and graduate students. For the past five years, Erin has taught high school chemistry and AP chemistry where she strives to challenge her students with creative approaches to fostering scientific curiosity.

Amy Siegel

Amy Siegel has worked as a high school tutor and Learning Specialist for the past eight years. Before that, she worked for twelve years as a college, high school, and middle school English teacher and for eight years as a school librarian. She loves working one-on-one with students because of the enormous satisfactions that derive from building a relationship based on a deep understanding of the student's strengths and challenges. Favorite quotation: "If a man does not keep pace with his companion, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer."

Humble Beginnings

We started small in 2012 with the aim of furthering students' understanding of physics and math. From there, we have grown to servicing students in physics, math, chemistry, writing and composition, and students with executive functions and learning differences.
