I'm William, I obtained my master's degree in philosophy from KU Leuven in Belgium, graduating with distinction. I graduated from Ave Maria University with a B.A. in Philosophy and Literature, magna cum laude. I focus on analytic philosophy, particularly philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, philosophical methodology and Wittgenstein. I am competent in Ancient and Medieval philosophy, value theory, and aesthetics. I have had countless mentors in my academic experience who have assisted me in my writing and learning techniques. I am interested in extending the same type of help.

My teaching method is focused on being engaging and relatable. Making relatable connections in philosophy and literature is difficult sometimes. I know that if the writing assignment or the philosophical reflection does not correspondence to your life in a practical way, it may be difficult to find your homework meaningful. That is why I always work to make my lessons as applicable as possible, even if it is a research paper about Kant and his theory of ethics or Aristotle's teleology. My second focus in a lesson is the writing process, I emphasize structure and coherence from a macro level (the overall picture of the project) supported by a micro level continuity (the grammatical/syntactic structure of each supporting sentence). Lastly, I focus on comprehension. Philosophical puzzles can be difficult to understand, let alone to solve. I am patient and have been trained to express complex ideas clearly and straightforwardly. I am confident that a lesson with me will be beneficial, whether it is for editing a paper for grammar, working through some difficult piece of literature or philosophical text, or wrapping up a research paper.

I have had 4+ years of experience tutoring, with a wide range of age-groups and topics from middle school language arts to graduate courses on philosophy of language. I have taught a small group of high school students an introductory course on logic and have led adult groups in philosophical reading/interpretation groups ranging from 2-7 people. I constantly assess my techniques and lessons based on the student's interests and progress.

I am easy to reach, whether through text or email. I am easy-going, but I care about helping my students achieve their academic goals. Know that if you reach me, I will do my best help you reach your goal.
