MA in History of Philosophy offering instruction in history of philosophy and select philosophical topics.

Methodology

I meet students at their level and translate concepts so that they connect. We work closely with text to draw our conclusions and set out ground rules of logic and method that will allow our explorations of the material to be rigorous.

Background

My Master's degree in History of Philosophy reflects the rigor of studies I have undertaken. As a graduate teaching assistant I led classes to discover deep truths about themselves and the world. Six years of experience as a literacy tutor.
