    About Jordan

    Jordan holds an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Columbia University and a B.F.A. in Writing, Literature & Publishing from Emerson College, from which he graduated summa cum laude with minors in Psychology, Philosophy, and Science. Last year he was a Fulbright scholar to Montenegro, where he taught seven courses for the University of Montenegro. Jordan has also won and been a finalist for several writing prizes, including the Envy Award for Outstanding Nonfiction and the Henfield Prize for fiction.

    Today, Jordan is a professor at Touro College as well as a test prep expert specializing in college and secondary school admissions exams. He has taught test prep for several years in New York public schools and across three continents. Ever since he was young, he’s been the weird one who actually enjoys standardized tests, and, for several years now, he’s taught students of every skill level and background how to like them too…or, at least, how to get the scores they need.
