Thank you for visiting my profile. I am excited about helping you learn. I earned my BA in Telecommunications in 1991 and my Master's in Philosophy in 1995. Since then I have enjoyed connecting these two fields by teaching philosophy online as well as in person. I have been teaching philosophy and logic courses online and in person for 20 years at the college level. I have also be an advisor to students entering college as well as those in the process of completing their degrees.

The focus of my work in teaching, advising, and tutoring is to begin with where you are at as a student. What do you already know and find interesting? Starting here provides a good foundation for further learning by allowing you to make active connections between what you know and what you need to learn. This helps you make the knowledge relevant and meaningful which makes the learning process fun and also effective. When I design lessons I integrate the material to be taught with more familiar everyday material which, again, helps establish meaningful connections.

One of the most difficult courses I teach is Introduction to Logic. The material is challenging but I have helped many students develop their skills in this subject and I can help you as well. BY using guided instruction and practice I can help you improve your skills at basic reasoning and the use of natural deduction. The abstraction of philosophy courses can also be challenging but by making interesting connections between what you're interested in and what the philosophers were saying I can help you learn this material better and faster.

In the past 20 years I have read over 1,000 books. That allows me to draw from a large store of knowledge to best help you learn the subjects you're struggling with. A big part of my method for tutoring is to help you see connections. Learning is easier if you can connect what you need to learn with what you already know and what you are already interested in. I guarantee we can find some way of connecting the topics you need help with to something you find interesting!

I have been teaching college level introduction to logic courses for 20 years. These courses include an analysis of argumentation, categorical logic, propositional logic, and natural deduction.
