My name is David. I currently hold BA degrees in Psychology and Philosophy and an MA degree in Philosophy. My interests in Philosophy are wide, but I am currently working on questions of how we come to acquire knowledge about ourselves and our environments. I've focused my research on the intersection of Psychology and Philosophy which allows me to competently discuss both of these subjects at all levels.

Apart from academics, I am also an athlete in my spare time. Over the years I have played football, rugby, soccer, track, golf, running, and cycling. I still very much enjoy these sports but, as I'm sure you know, or at least will surely figure out soon, the older you get the less time you find you have for these enjoyable activities; I try to fit them in nonetheless.

Personally, I am very easy to get along with as I have a great sense of humor and an ability to convey difficult material in a relatively straightforward, simple manner. I enjoy learning and I enjoy teaching (without divorcing these from each other) material to students who also enjoy learning. Yet my strengths lie primarily in making education fun and entertaining so that the student actually wants to learn the material rather than trying to force feed what is otherwise already very difficult to understand.

Apart from Philosophy & Psychology I am also capable of tutoring students in English, Political Science, and a variety of other entry-level college courses.

I encourage you to drop me a line and discuss your needs and concerns in more depth.

Thank you.
