I specialize in tutoring on topics in philosophy, psychology, reading, writing, and editing. As a philosopher, my writing background is specialized in writing argumentative essays. I can train you to present your ideas clearly and concisely. I also have a background in logic, which is a tool for evaluating the quality of arguments. I have 4 years of experience writing and editing publication quality manuscripts (typically in psychology).

The above highlights what I am best at, however, I believe that my training can be more applied more broadly than simply writing strong argumentative papers. I can teach other essay styles, and can teach you how to improve: sentence structure, grammar, spelling, etc.

I am currently completing my Masters in Philosophy at San Francisco State University. As a graduate student, I have worked as a researcher in a cognitive psychology lab studying consciousness. I have three years of experience as a teaching assistant in philosophy.
