Hi! My name is Christian, and I'm a PhD student in philosophy
at the University of Maryland. I've been tutoring a wide range of students for about the last four years, primarily in two major groups: first, college students in undergraduate- and graduate-level logic
courses, and second, middle and high school students in general courses including math
. In addition, I've been coaching high school debate since graduating high school, and consequently have a lot of experience working with kids in the 7th-12th grade range on skills including research, writing
and public speaking
. In the time I've been coaching, my students have won two national championships in Lincoln-Douglas debate, for what that's worth.
There are a few niche subjects that are special areas of interest for me, and that I would be thrilled to get the chance to tutor. Those include (of course) logic and philosophy, but also astronomy
, ancient, medieval and American history
, and paleoanthropology/human evolution. But I also just enjoy the process of teaching, especially in one-on-one or small-group contexts with motivated students, so I'm happy to tutor any subject for which I'm qualified. My formal background is strongest in math and history, but I have a solid general grounding in other subjects as well, and have tutored before in English, the sciences, and other topic at the middle and high school levels. I also have some, albeit limited, experience working with special needs
students, and am happy to do that as well.
References are available on request, and depending on the subject area you're interested in, I can probably provide references specific to that subject. My default rate is $40 per hour, but that's negotiable based on circumstances. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions!
