Chandler Rosenthal

tutor, actor

Chandler was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, where she attended the Berkeley Carroll School from first through twelfth grade. She then went on to Yale University, beginning her college career as a pre-med biology major and coming out the other side as an actor with an English degree. When not tutoring, Chandler fills her time making and consuming theater and films, eavesdropping on strangers, and drinking all sorts of combinations of espresso and milk.

…a text I love to teach

Any essay by Kathryn Schulz. She weaves in and out of human messiness and well-researched science so seamlessly, and often with a very fun command of conversational humor.

…a favorite place I’ve visited

Budapest, Hungary

…eight people living or dead I’d invite to my ideal dinner party
Lucille Ball, Aretha Franklin, Tig Notaro, Annie Baker, Harriet Tubman, Ira Glass, Maya Rudolph, and Robin Williams.
…something I can’t stop thinking about

Small acts of human kindness. Life in space. And how weird it is that we’ve normalized the very amazing fact that some birds can talk!
