I want students to write an essay they can own proudly, and, I hope, learn in the process.

Leslie Seifert, an award-winning op-ed editor and educator, applies the best of both fields to coach writing and research skills.

This is tempered by the patience he has learned teaching students of widely varying ages and skill levels in colleges and public high schools. He won two national awards from the National Association of Opinion Editors.

EDUCATION. He is a graduate of Harvard College, with a master’s degree in U.S. history from Columbia University and a second master’s degree in special education from The City College of New York. In recent years, after a long career as a full-time editor and part-time educator, he has been working as a certified, tenured teacher in the New York City school system for special education students in grades 7-12.

PUBLICATIONS. Leslie’s writing has been published in The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, Columbia Journalism Review, Education Week, Newsday and Teachers College Record.
