About Geoffrey

I am currently a PhD student in Philosophy at the University of St. Thomas.

For the past three years I worked as a tutor and tutor coordinator at UST. In that time, I have helped students of various levels earn higher marks in philosophy, writing, and English literature. I typically approach the art of tutoring Socratically; that is, by asking questions fashioned to elicit original thoughts from the student. However, in my experience, I sometimes find it necessary to explain principles and/or themes before getting down to the details.

I also have experience in manuscript editing.
