Milo Beckman

BA, Harvard, Government

Algebra, Calculus, Chemistry, Geometry, Physics, Statistics

Milo's thirst for knowledge extends across many academic fields. He took a strong interest in math at a young age, taking classes at Stuyvesant High School when he was 8 years old and graduate classes at the NYU Courant Institute during his high school years. However, at Harvard, he branched out, switching his major from economics to applied math with computer science, and then again to government — but he wishes he didn’t have to choose! He writes about science, statistics, politics, and history, and tries to read about pretty much everything else. He has worked as Wealth Management Intern at Morgan Stanley, Constituent Liaison at the Office of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Crossword Constructor at the New York Times, Trading Intern at Jane Street Capital, and Freelance Writer at FiveThirtyEight, among others.

A lifelong teacher, Milo used to study for tests in high school by explaining the material to his younger brother. He captained and taught the Stuyvesant and New York City math teams at age 14, taught civics education to fourth and fifth graders in Boston public schools throughout college, and is currently working as the head curriculum developer for an SAT/TOEFL training program in China. He really likes explaining things, and even runs a website where he answers questions like “How does WiFi work?” in layman’s terms. His teaching style is lively and interactive, supporting an intuitive and creative methodology for finding solutions to problems.

When he is not tutoring, Milo may be found playing piano, reading on the subway, or making crossword puzzles.
