Philosophy instructor with over 7 years of experience. I can also offer instruction in Classical history/mythology and overall college study preparation.

Methodology

I engage in a hands-on teaching method in which I engage students with Socratic questioning and interesting activities. I consider it to be my responsibility to facilitate students in coming to grasp information and concepts by offering them strategies to think through problems themselves.

Background

I am a Philosophy PhD student with over seven years of teaching experience. I also have a background in Classics (Greek and Roman history, languages, and mythology) and I have worked as a tutor for philosophical logic, successful study methods, and writing at the undergraduate and graduate level.
