About Gina

Finding the right tutor is important, so our first consultation is free. Until then, here's a little bit about me and how I approach tutoring.

My experience suggests that if you want to excel in college, improving your ability to write essays is the way in. Good writing reflects the ability to think carefully and creatively, and persuade an audience that some point of view is correct, or worth considering. Good writing requires iterations of thinking, writing, consulting, and revising. Feedback is key to mastering this process, and as a qualified and patient tutor, I can help you write better essays resulting in higher grades across a spectrum of college-level courses.

I have a PhD in philosophy from University of California, Davis (2010) and 10 years of experience teaching college-level courses in philosophy (intro, ethics, logic, etc.); more recently shifting to tutoring. I can help you write better essays, for any course, because I start with an essay draft that you have written, along with your instructor's assignment prompt, and give you relevant feedback that you can use to improve your essay. I'll work online (through email) with your draft or we can meet in person, or both; and I'll read and respond to as many drafts as necessary to achieve results.

I am also available to help you make sense of philosophy and logic.

My goal is to help you achieve higher grades by honing your general academic writing skills. These include articulating an issue in your own words, formulating a coherent position, defending that position with relevant evidence and principles, and considering and responding to objections to your own argument. These skills are the foundation of understanding, and mastering them is a real achievement, applicable to nearly every course or discipline you take on.

If you're striving for academic excellence, send me a message and we'll get started.
