Joel Kassack moved overseas at a young age. He navigated world-class private schools in Ireland, Belgium and Singapore. Living abroad gave him the opportunity to experience new cultures and see things from a different perspective. It inspired him to develop a curiosity for all subjects, and it taught him a lesson that he applies to his mentoring style to this day: to approach all challenges, no matter how big or small, with patience, adaptability and humor.
Joel tutors in writing and math, from algebra to precalculus. He holds a bachelor’s in business administration from Emory University and an MFA in creative writing from The New School. He lives with his wife in Brooklyn, where he is working on a novel.
