I have my Ph.D. in the history of philosophy and ethics from the University of Pennsylvania (May 1989). For family reasons, I have been living and working as a Substitute Teacher (K-12) in the Rochester Public Schools since 2007, after taking leave from a tenured position teaching college students in Wisconsin. My experience and expertise include publishing scholarly and popular articles on legal, medical and business ethics, psychology, history, theology, editing a book of essays on contemporary views of democracy, and have also published some poems.
Although my speaking fluency in foreign languages is limited I have proficient reading knowledge of Italian, French, German, and classical Greek and Latin. My teaching style is Socratic, focused question and answer interactions with students in teaching/learning the subject or material. I explain the subject matter in as many different ways as possible; I love to demonstrate the multi-faceted nature of learning any detail, theory, or subject area. Also, to apply the subject matter directly to student's own experience, background, and goals is critical for me or any teacher in order to bring the learning material to life and make it personally relevant and useful to the student.
