I'm a very patient and effective tutor for young adults, both in individual and small group settings. I have broad teaching experience, and a knack for communication which tends to quiet fears and instill enthusiasm. In addition to an undergraduate degree in English, with a minor in History, I have a PhD. in Philosophy from the University of Chicago, with extensive work in Logic and Classical Languages.

I have taught Logic courses at Louisiana State University and at Roosevelt University in Chicago, and I taught courses in Logic, Aristotle and History of Modern Philosophy at McGill University in Montreal. In addition, I have tutored students, both individually and in groups, in English, Latin, classical Greek and Logic. Although I liked classroom teaching, I have always felt that I was at my best in a tutoring situation, where there is more reciprocity between student and teacher, and greater opportunity for flexibility in the rate at which material is covered, and in the method of approach. I look forward to guiding students through coursework and through the process of preparing for standardized tests.

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.

Greek

During my Master's studies I took two introductory courses in New Testament Greek, followed by a reading course in New Testament and Classical Greek texts. Afterwards I took a reading course in Plato's Gorgias and an independent study course in Plato's Phaedo. During my Doctoral studies I took reading courses in Homer, Herodotus, Epicurus, Plato's Statesman and Aristotle. I also took a course in Greek prose composition.

Logic

During my Master's studies I took one introductory course and one graduate course in symbolic logic. I also did two independent reading courses in set theory and logic in the math department. During this period I served for four semesters as a course assistant for courses in traditional syllogistic logic. During my Doctoral studies I took two courses in mathematical logic, and a course in set theory and a course in model theory in the math department. During this period I served for three quarters as a course assistant for courses in introductory symbolic logic.
