I hold a PhD in philosophy from Boston College and a BA from Missouri State University. For more than five years, I have designed and taught philosophy courses at universities around the world. My specialization is history of philosophy (ancient, modern, contemporary continental), but no matter the area or author, I have experience helping students express themselves and write cogent essays in philosophy.

I am happy to help students in introductory courses on any philosophical topic, or to serve as a writing coach at any level. Additionally, I can offer specialized assistance in a variety of topic areas for upper-division and graduate level courses, especially: existentialism and phenomenology, philosophy of science, ancient Greek thought, informal logic, and ethics.

I hold a PhD in philosophy from Boston College and a BA from Missouri State University. For more than five years, I have designed and taught graduate and undergraduate level philosophy courses at international universities. I am happy to help students write essays in philosophy, master difficult concepts, or to study for tests. My area of specialization is the history of philosophy (ancient, modern, contemporary continental). I also have teaching and research experience in great books, phenomenology, existentialism, Kant, Descartes, Aristotle, Plato, medieval philosophy, renaissance humanism, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, critical thinking, and ethics.

I completed my PhD in Philosophy at Boston College, which is a Jesuit program that emphasizes a study of theology. I have a deep understanding of the Church Fathers, including the writings of Augustine and Aquinas. I have studied biblical history in its own right, and I can tutor students on the history of the Old Testament. Additionally, I have competence to tutor in comparative religions, having studied the classics of East Asian thought (primarily Taoism and Buddhism).

Excellent tutor!

We are thrilled to have found Dr. D.! He tutored my student with a writing assignment simplifying the logical reasoning process to help my kid structure the work. He didn't stop there; he also checked for the understanding of sources. Dr. D. is kind, thorough, and knowledgeable. At the end of the session, you will receive an outline of what they covered during their session. It is an incredible tool to keep my kid focus on the task at hand! Thank you for all your help, Dr. D.! My student, is looking forward to another session with you!

I have enjoyed philosophical conversations with Kevin! He has also been keen to point out the parts I need to work on for my project! Really great help!

Susanna, 41 lessons with Kevin

Very knowledgeable and doesn't mind repeating to make sure you understand.

I like his manner and how patient he is in explaining. Philosophy is confusing to me so I really appreciate how he takes the time to make sure I have a complete understanding. Highly recommend him for tutoring.

Graeme, 15 lessons with Kevin

Helpful and very patient tutor

He gave me a clear view of what marginalization means and the difference between marginalization and discrimination with examples. He's very friendly and very patient. Answers every question patiently and with sincerity. Definitely would recommend him.

Knowledgeable and Interesting

Very nice and knowledgeable. Thank you. Kevin introduced many knowledge and methods on philosophy, which is challenging yet interesting for me. I was inspired to learn more about philosophy. In addition, Kevin helped to give me more suggestions on how to develop myself in this field. Great experience.

Kevin went above and beyond my expectations. He reviewed pertinent material before our session so he came ready to assist and I’m so thankful that I was able to have his assistance. He was an answer to prayer.
