A current university professor, I have over ten years of experience tutoring all levels of secondary science, mathematics, and humanities. I hold a PhD in cognitive semiotics from Indiana University of PA, as well as degrees from the University of Miami and Florida Atlantic University. I am particularly familiar with curricula in Florida and Pennsylvania, though I have tutored throughout the country and abroad as well. I also have extensive experience tutoring at the college level. As a professor, I have lectured in the United States, Europe, and Asia in subjects such as cognitive science, poetics, and anthropology, giving me a wide range of fields from which to draw; but my true passion is teaching, no matter the subject. Regardless of their level or the subject, I promise my students that they will improve tremendously--and hopefully enjoy themselves doing so. My goal is always maximum clarity combined with a practical approach--rather than merely lecturing, I prefer to have students work side by side with me on problems so that they can leave our session with both maximum retention and ultimate confidence. I also strive to incorporate real-life connections into every tutorial in order to bring otherwise abstract knowledge into the sphere of the everyday.
I taught Chemistry at the university level for many years, and I have over ten years of experience tutoring chemistry at all levels. I hold a PhD in Semiotics & Critical Theory from Indiana University, as well as higher degrees in Chemistry & Neuroscience from the University of Miami. Although I specialize in inorganic chemistry and biochemistry, I have also tutored organic chemistry 1 and 2.
I hold a PhD in Semiotics & Critical Theory from the English Department at Indiana University of PA. I have taught English, Literature, and Social Sciences at both the university and secondary level. I have also taught English abroad in Thailand, Greece, and South America. I have over ten years of experience teaching English to both native and non-native speakers.
I hold a PhD in Semiotics from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, as well as an MA in Psychology from Florida Atlantic University where I worked for many years in cognitive science. I also have over ten years of experience tutoring students in social sciences, humanities, and the natural sciences at all levels.
I have over ten years of experience tutoring SAT, as well as teaching SAT prep courses for various institutions. I also hold a PhD in Semiotics & Critical Theory from the English Department at Indiana University.
I have published widely in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. My poetry and fiction has appeared in various literary magazines, most recently in Medulla Review. I have also published nonfiction in academic journals, most recently in the Journal of Modern Literature, Anthropology & Humanism, and the James Joyce Quarterly. My book A Calculus of Fire is forthcoming, and I hold a PhD in Semiotics & Critical Theory from Indiana University. I have taught and tutored writing intensive courses for over ten years; writing is my passion, and I like to impart that passion to my students to transform them from good writers into great ones.
