My teaching and tutoring experience includes four semesters as a teaching assistant for logic at Tufts (2010-2011) and two semesters as a teaching assistant for an ethics course at Harvard Extension (2012 and 2013). I was also a TA at the Extension School for a Philosophy of Mind course this past fall. Lots and lots of hours spent working with students on a one-on-one basis for all of these classes.
I started tutoring the LSAT and GRE in August. I've worked with a handful of students so far. I really enjoy teaching and tutoring. It's extremely rewarding to work through difficult material with a student and have him or her get it.
For those interested in taking the LSAT or GRE, I like to start with an initial two-hour session focused on going over a practice test you have recently taken. Your results on the practice test give me a sense of what your strengths and weaknesses are with the respect to the test. With that knowledge I can then start to craft a tutoring program for you that focuses on developing the specific skills and strategies you need to ace the test.
In addition, this initial session gives you the opportunity to see how I approach the test and tutoring more generally, which helps you determine whether we'll be a good fit for one another.
My Education and Credentials:
M.A. in Philosophy, May 2012
B.A. in English, May 2005
LSAT in June 2013 - 178 (99.9th percentile)
A little more about me: Before graduate school, I worked at a winery in Napa Valley and a newspaper in San Francisco, where I was fortunate enough to be able to write book and movie reviews.
Hobbies: I love literature and logic, film and philosophy, and cocktails and cryptography.
