I specialize in standardized tests, especially SAT, ACT and LSAT. Although I generally consider myself a mathematician, having studied and taught philosophy at UW for seven years, I also have developed effective communication and pedagogical skills that make me unusually qualified to provide thorough and well-rounded approaches to each of these tests. My background is particularly well-suited to the LSAT, insofar as the field of philosophy is laden with both formal and informal logic, strict and careful scrutiny of dense texts, and presenting cogent arguments clearly and concisely.

In addition to my work in standardized tests, I have been tutoring math since the early '90s, and regularly work with students in courses from algebra through calculus. Although the market is much smaller, I do still work occasionally with students in academic philosophy, and I am always eager to work with students studying logic.

I have been a part-time private tutor for about 20 years. In addition to my freelance work, I have helped students at University Tutoring Service and Central Test Prep in Seattle and at Boston Global Education in Westborough, MA. I am committed to helping students gain a deep understanding of the material they are studying, not just getting through their current homework assignment or upcoming test.

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.

Logic

I took formal logic and metalogic at Kent State and got A's both times. I took metalogic, logic seminar on completeness and computability, and set theory at the University of Washington, earning a 4.0, 4.0 and 3.6, respectively. I have taught introduction to logic and critical thinking at UW and Cascadia Community College and have written an introductory formal logic textbook currently in beta testing.
