Hi!

I have two and a half years as a group and online tutor for introductory biology at De Anza Community College and three years’ experience as a freelance formal logic (propositional and predicate logic) tutor while attending Columbia University. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in May 2018 with a B.A. in philosophy, receiving departmental honors. I have long experience throughout my academic career of writing argumentative and philosophical essays. My expertise are with argument structure, content, and logic.

I am currently taking a gap year before embarking on PhD in philosophy.

I have over three years of experience tutoring both sentential (propositional) logic and predicate (first order) logic at an advanced college level. I have experience with several methods of proof as well as syntax, semantics and symbolization.

I am also very familiar with all the logic courses being taught at De Anza.

I have written countless argumentative and philosophical essays over the last 6 years in addition to acting as an editor and argument couch at the college level. I have received exceptional scores on the reading section of both the SAT and GRE.

If you have any questions about exactly how I can help you improve any area of writing, reading, or logic, don't hesitate to contact me to work out a customized schedule and lessen plan.

Logic

I have a degree in philosophy (with departmental honors) from Columbia University. While there I took multiple classes in classical logic (propositional and predicate) as well as an advanced course in non-classical logic. While at Columbia, I tutored fellow students in symbolic logic and have continued to tutor it post graduation.

only reason I passed

He has helped me so much. I wouldn’t have been able to pass this class without his help. I have met with him for about 10 sessions. He has been an incredible help. You will not regret the this tutor!

Thank You Chris

Chris helps me understand what I’m doing wrong and about to do wrong with Propositional Logic. Grateful for his help so I can learn the correct way before thinking the incorrect way is correct.

Patient, Smart, Enthusiastic...and Willing to Deal With Endless Questions

Chris tutored me for a period of 4 months, reviewing basic concepts of propositional logic that weren't covered in my class. He's nice, intelligent, and a damn good teacher. If you don't understand something the first time he explains it, he's able to come up with other ways to get the point across. His enthusiasm is inspiring. When I found Wyzant, I was at the point where I was willing to walk away from the class after the drop period, because I was frustrated, needed help, and couldn't get it. P.S. Reader, I finished the course...only because of Chris. I recommend him highly.

Great Tutor

Chris made himself available last minute. I despise symbolic logic and yet he helped me break it down into pieces I can understand.
