I recently graduated from the University of Oxford with a master’s degree focused on Metaphysics and Philosophy of Religion. Previously, I graduated with a BA in Philosophy from Westmont College.

In addition to coursework in philosophy from my undergraduate studies and at Oxford, I have spent time studying philosophy through summer programs at Carnegie Mellon University and Brown University.

Through Wyzant's platform, I have experience in tutoring students taking a variety of courses/topics within philosophy, including Critical Thinking, Logic, Ethics, Ancient Philosophy, Medieval Philosophy, Modern Philosophy, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Religion, Philosophy of Mind, and Philosophy of Perception.

I am proud to say that I have helped a wide range of students succeed in their philosophy and logic courses—whether they were taking them at a community college or at a 4-year university such as UC Berkeley, Stanford, or Harvard.

In addition to Wyzant's platform, I have worked for the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth as a Teaching Assistant for a course in Logic and Philosophy.

As a writer, I have presented my papers at several philosophy conferences and have also had one of my papers published in a philosophy journal. In addition to my in-person and online tutoring, I also welcome students to also send me essays for me to provide comments and feedback on.

Extremely diligent, kind, and intelligent logic tutor!

Hien helped me immensely during my introductory university logic course. The course was very challenging and fast-paced, but Hien was patient in working with me through the problems. He struck the perfect balance of not being too heavy handed in his explanations and allowing me space to work through issues on my own, offering suggestions and clarifications when needed. My grade improved SIGNIFICANTLY after working with him. He was very knowledgable about the subject area and was able to reframe some of the rules so that I better understood them. He was really easy to get in touch with to schedule meeting times. He adapt quickly to my courses textbook, which had some unique rules. I would recommend Hien to anyone if they want a smart, patient, effective tutor!

Allie, 6 lessons with Hien

Amazing tutor!

Hein was able to help me out with my logic work straight away—he was very familiar with many different kinds of notation and methods of teaching logic. Hein’s explanations of proofs, first order logic interpretations and translations were really easy to understand, and his explanations made me a lot more comfortable with the material. Don’t waste your time or money trying another tutor—Hein is the perfect tutor for anything logic!

Santiago, 2 lessons with Hien

Patient and Intelligent

Patient, professional, intelligent and thoiughtful in his approach, Hien's understanding of and ability to teach logic was transformative in understanding the complex concepts. I can not recommend him any more highly.

Ellen, 5 lessons with Hien

Excellent Tutor

Helped me with some very advanced concepts and making sure that I felt prepared for my final exam. He may seem expensive but he knows what he is doing and can actually explain the reasoning behind the problem. Worth every penny.

Q, 1 lesson with Hien

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

After one session of working with him, I was able to bring my grade from 59% to 78% and get a nearly perfect score on a drill set without any assistance. I used the knowledge he shared and the tips he showed me to apply.

Derek, 1 lesson with Hien

Excellent philosophy tutor

Hien provided a lot of help with my philosophical essay. Even with my limited knowledge of the domain, Hien was able to provide much helpful advice to help me start with scoping out the topic and a lot of useful resources. And when Hien reviewed my draft, he provided me tons of helpful suggestions on both writing and critical thinking. He is always patient and willing to understand and clarify my questions and of course, tried to make sure my questions get answered.

Yiqi, 5 lessons with Hien

Excellent Symbolic Logic Tutor!
