I have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in philosophy, and I have taught introductory logic and introductory ethics courses. I am currently a doctoral student in philosophy at the University of California-San Diego, where I am a graduate teaching assistant for introductory philosophy courses. I have also tutored several WyzAnt students in logic and moral philosophy. So I am very well-qualified to tutor logic, ethics, and other philosophy classes. I also used to teach GRE classes for the Princeton Review and have tutored several Wyzant students for the GRE, so I am well-qualified to help people prepare for the GRE. Finally, I have tutored WyzAnt students in algebra before, and there is a lot of algebra on the GRE. So I am qualified to tutor algebra 2 and anything below that.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
