About George

I received a Bachelor's degree at San Diego State University with a major in philosophy and a minor in English. I further complete my Master's degree at SDSU in philosophy. During my graduate studies, I taught a course on Critical Thinking and Composition for four semesters. I specialize in essay construction of all varieties (creative writing included). Further, I have experience with test preparation such as the GRE and SAT/ACT writing and reading comprehension.

Pursuing my Masters Degree in philosophy at San Diego State University has afforded me the opportunity to learn first hand the limitations of teaching a subject to a wide audience. It became clear, over the course of four semesters teaching a class on Critical Thinking and Composition, that many absorbed the material right away while others struggled to keep up with the coursework. Indeed, I found that the best way of helping these students keep up was by meeting them during office hours. Without the pressures of keeping up appearances in front of their classmates, students could ask me direct questions, and I could identify the specific areas obstructing clarification. From these considerations, I have come to believe that education is best facilitated when it is designed around the considerations of the individual.

Knowledge isn't just power, it is empowering. I want to facilitate a thirst for knowledge in my students and I believe that this entails getting to know them individually so that I can identify specific strengths and weakness and build a curriculum accordingly.
I do my best to keep a flexible schedule to meet with students based on their own time tables.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Logic

Completed course "Deductive Logic" at SDSU which encompasses both symbolic and predicate logic. Furthermore, I have 2 years of teaching experience at SDSU for phil 110 "Critical Thinking and Composition," which emphasizes introductory logic.

Reading

I have two years teaching experience at San Diego State University instructing a course on critical thinking and composition. This course centered on developing argumentative essays and so I have the expertise to assist on any aspect of the writing process.
