I am happy to assist with college-level introductory philosophy courses (e.g., Intro to Phil, Ethics, Logic, Critical Thinking), but I am also willing to assist with upper-level courses as well (e.g., Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mind, Advanced Logic, Metaphysics).

Compassionate and knowledgeable tutor

Highly recommend Dylan's tutoring services, for regardless of your background Dylan will treat you with compassion and speak with you as a peer. Dylan can clearly convey complex logical concepts. And Dylan is also very patient, ensuring that I understood the material and walked away more confident after our tutor session.

I wholeheartedly Recommend Dylan A.

Dylan may have received several positive reviews; however, between those reviews and mine is that I hardly could write a clear sentence when I started to work with him. Writing in English was my Achilles heel and I feared it. But, with Dylan’s help, I overcame that fear. He helped me to be logical and precise in my writing but also to think outside of the box. I seek Dylan’ help, every time an assignment challenged me. We will brainstorm together and create a beautiful piece of work. The most notable thing about my experience with Dylan wasn't that he helped me overcome my fear of writing but helped me to enjoy the creative process of it. Throughout my time with him, he listened to my questions and concerns. He listened to me share my thought of what I really want to convey. Today, my anxiety of not being a native speaker, which I believed will always reflect in my writing is gone. I only have the best things to say about Dylan and highly recommend him as a tutor.

Mamadou, 5 lessons with Dylan

Incredibly clear and helpful!

Thank you so much! You clarified otherwise really confusing material so well I really appreciate your help! I feel way more prepared for my final. I'm not a strong student in the class but grasp this material so much better from a short lesson.

Mim, 1 lesson with Dylan

Patient and friendly tutor.

Dylan was a friendly and very patient tutor. He was thorough in explaining material and practiced many different predicate logic problems with me and helped me understand where I was going wrong. Thanks to Dylan I passed my last two tests and was able to bring my grade up significantly. I would absolutely recommend Dylan.

Super amazing!

I cannot express enough how great a tutor Dylan is. Dylan explains Philosophical concepts extremely well. He is very knowledgeable, extremely kind and patient, and he is skillful at explaining the ideas in Philosophy.
