About Justin


Bio

Hello! My name is Justin - I have a BA in English and Philosophy from Grinnell College, with a minor in Global Development Studies. My Master's degree was done at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary, with an advanced certificate in Political Thought; CEU was a great program due to its small cohort size and the wide breadth of the topics studied by my professors and classmates. It also is ranked as the 35th best Philosophy department in the world.

Hello! My name is Justin - I have a BA in English and Philosophy from Grinnell College, with a minor in Global Development Studies. My Master's degree was done at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary, with an advanced certificate in Political Thought; CEU was a great program due to its small cohort size and the wide breadth of the topics studied by my professors and classmates. It also is ranked as the 35th best Philosophy department in the world.

I have extensive experience conducting research, editing and producing academic writing, giving presentations on topics in the humanities and social sciences, and participating in diverse reading groups. My emphases in graduate school were the metaphysics and philosophy of mind, social and political philosophy, political theory and the history of political thought from Ancient to Contemporary, philosophy of law, critical theory, environmental philosophy, 19th and 20th century philosophy, and Analytic and Continental philosophy.

I also received thorough training in academic writing, reading, and argumentation. My thesis was an elaboration of Axel Honneth's Recognition Theory as an argument for prison abolition. Between my BA and my own prolific reading outside of school curriculum, I also have expertise in 20th and 21st century US American fiction and poetry, literary theory and history, world literatures, jazz history, and postcolonial literature. I am passionate about all of these areas, and more, and want to use my passion to keep you engaged.

My goal as a tutor is two-fold: I want to you to see measurable improvement in your desired areas, and I want to help you fall in love with learning. Whether you are looking to improve your study of the humanities for the sake of a grade, a test score, or merely to widen your realm of interests, I'm the tutor for you!
