Philosophy Tutor with a PhD from UCSD
I have a PhD in philosophy from the University of California San Diego (UCSD), a master's degree in philosophy from Michigan State University (MSU), and a bachelor's degree in philosophy & psychology from the University of Kansas.

I have a PhD in philosophy from the University of California San Diego (UCSD), a master's degree in philosophy from Michigan State University (MSU), and a bachelor's degree in philosophy & psychology from the University of Kansas. I've taught introductory logic for the UCSD Extension Program and at MSU, and I've been tutoring satisfied Wyzant students in logic since 2011, so I'm an excellent choice for students who need help with propositional and symbolic logic (e.g., deductive vs. inductive reasoning, formal and informal fallacies, truth-tables, translations and proofs, quantifiers, etc.). I also specialize in moral philosophy. I've taught ethics course at UCSD, Miramar College, Woodbury University, Montgomery College, and Carroll Community College, so I am well-equipped to help you with your ethics courses. I can help you understand the relevant concepts and theories, and I can provide constructive feedback on paper drafts or direction for writing papers. I also have an extensive background in philosophy in general, so I can help you with other, non-ethics philosophy courses as well. In fact, as someone with years of experience with academic writing, I can provide useful feedback on any type of academic writing, including personal statements for med school, vet school, and other forms of higher education.

Knowledgeable and passionate about philosophy
Ryan helped me out with my Philosophy of human nature course. He clearly explained to me the ideas of Plato, Nietzsche, Aristotle, and St. Augustine. He also proofread my writing and gave detailed feedback. I scored an A in the course and I would recommend working with Ryan!Aleks, 8 lessons with Ryan
Ryan is very knowledgable and helped me a great deal. I threw a very large number of questions at him. He was also easy to work with: timely responses to messages and very flexible with scheduling.Andrea, 1 lesson with Ryan
So knowledgeable and Helpful!!!
Ryan helped me SO much with my philosophy class this quarter. He helped me break down concepts, outline my papers, and helped me understand all the difficult philosophy arguments for my final exam!!! (which is amazing because I do not know anything about philosophy...). I highly, highly, HIGHLY, recommend Ryan!!! He is so knowledgeable and he really tries to help you understand by breaking down the information to you in such an easy and simple form. Again, amazing experience!!!Mona, 3 lessons with Ryan
