What I find most rewarding about tutoring students in Philosophy is that I would be helping to develop the critical thinking and minds of upcoming generations, to prosper in this fast-evolving and multidimensional era.
My doctorate, earned in 2003 from Bowling Green State University, Philosophy Department, specialized in Applied Philosophy with a concentration in Ethics and Social Philosophy. My subsequent teaching experience is distinguished by a number of tenure positions in both Europe and the United States. Prior to relocating to the U.S., I taught Philosophy for six years in Bucharest, Romania, which involved high school introductory courses in the theory of knowledge as well as the history of philosophy.
At Lincoln University and Bowling Green State University I taught a variety of philosophy courses to both major and non-major Philosophy students of different educational backgrounds. I earned plaudits in all tenures, with high overall student and collegial-peer evaluations.
These extensive experiences in advanced coursework, along with concomitant pedagogical research in education, optimized my overall learning matrix and curricular development. I have a proven record for exceeding faculty goals through a firm commitment to student-centered learning.
I am able to create for my students an effective learning environment, to accurately evaluate students’ performance while attending to multicultural sensitivities; and the competence to promote and fortify students’ confidence, present enjoyable, interesting stories and lectures, and engage in continuing personality development.
I am very well adapted to the New York metropolitan environment, and have been doing effective programmatic outreach including successful conferences and panel collaborations with university philosophy centers, not-for-profit educational organizations and United Nations staff and agencies. I am fluent in English, French, Italian and Romanian. I travel efficiently, and quickly establish amiable working relations with colleagues here and abroad.
