My approach to tutoring is to meet my student where they are - what are their strengths, what do they struggle with, and (most importantly) what interests them? How can I help you to work on what skills you already have and to expand your expertise into areas that you previously felt were too difficult or too confusing to master?
I feel that as a tutor, my task is to be able to translate whatever the material is into a language that you understand and can apply yourself. By doing this, I am encouraging you to put things into your own words and to make the concepts we are studying become relevant to how you already understand the world. I believe that with the right kind and amount of one-on-one attention, people can learn any subject and develop themselves into the students that they wish to be. I have been tutoring students in Psychology and Philosophy as well as helping others more generally with their writing skills.
Currently, I am teaching part-time as an adjunct faculty member at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology at their downtown Los Angeles campus. I have an undergraduate degree (BA) with a major in Psychology and a minor in Philosophy that I earned in May 2006. I continued my studies in Psychology and earned my doctoral degree (PsyD) in August 2010. I have continued my interest in philosophy on my own, reading and speaking with philosophy teachers and graduate students over the past five years.
