I've been studying, writing and teaching philosophy for more than 15 years, and I've been tutoring private students for more than 6 years.

My areas of interest in philosophy include Existentialism, Phenomenology, American Pragmatism and the Philosophy of Mind, but I also have a strong background in Ancient and Modern Philosophy, Ethics, Philosophy of Religion, Philosophy of Science and Probability Theory. I'm a published philosopher, and lucky enough to have worked with some of the most distinguished thinkers of our time.

In addition to philosophy, I have taught academic writing to both undergraduate and graduate students in a wide variety of fields. My teaching style is focused but relaxed, and I tailor each lesson to the needs of the individual student.

Education:

*BA in philosophy from UC-Berkeley (with honors)
*MA in philosophy from NYU (with full funding on a GSA scholarship)

Teaching Experience:

*2 years teaching philosophy and literature to undergraduates at NYU
*1 year teaching philosophy, literature and film, as well as writing and reading, in Seoul, South Korea
*6 years tutoring private students

Other Relevant Experience:

*Published philosopher and referee for top academic journals

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
