Doctor of Philosophy and Former College Professor here to help you with Philosophy, dissertation and thesis writing, essay writing, and homework from Middle School to Graduate School in Austin

Methodology

I use the Socratic Method of asking leading questions to draw out what the student wants to write for their essays. Additionally, I ask the students about their interests so as to develop a rapport with them. Using this rapport I craft examples around their interests to help them better understand the material they are studying. I then give them a format for the student to use that allows them to clearly communicate their thesis, define technical terms, and give specific examples to show how well they understand the subject matter.

Background

I have been tutoring for nearly 20 years, and taught at the college and university levels for over 11 years. I have taught anywhere from 5 to 35 students at a time. In the span of 12 weeks I have helped countless students improve their essay writing from D and C grade papers to A papers.
