About Caleb

I graduated with honors in Philosophy from Pitzer College, where I did my Master's thesis on the topic of animal ethics within the society-centered meta-ethical view. I am able to assist with virtually any topic in philosophy, as well as English and writing. I specialize in helping my students formulate strong positions and argue well for those positions. This is a skill that is useful in almost any discipline. I can also help with proper formatting, research projects, proper grammar, and test preparation.

If you are hoping that someone will do your work for you, I am probably not your best choice. I want to help you develop the skills you need to be successful for the rest of your life.


I took undergraduate courses in critical thinking and logic. I also took an undergraduate course in reasoning under conditions of uncertainty, where the focus was the Bayesian formulation of the probability calculus. In grad school I took an advanced course in logic. Mathematical reasoning never came easy for me. I excelled at logic because I applied myself, not because it is just something that I intuitively grasp. Because I had to work to succeed at logic, I know from first-hand experience how to explain it so that it can be understood. I can make logic user-friendly for you.

Writing has always been a talent, but I learned in college that there is a difference between creative writing and writing in an academic setting, and the two skills are not neatly transferable. When writing a college term paper, the structure of your paper is more important than the eloquence of your words. Not everyone is a talented writer; everyone can, however, write a good thesis paper because those skills are less about talent and more about learning how to structure an argument. In philosophy, structuring good arguments is what we do. I have learned those skills and can teach then to you.

I am generally available in the high desert area (Victorville, Hesperia, Apple Valley, etc.) I respond promptly to inquiries and can generally take an assignment on relatively short notice. I can come to you, or we can work out a more neutral setting. I'm flexible, easy-going, and highly educated. I also get great results.
