About Maria

My name is Maria and I have an extensive background in teaching/tutoring college students in Philosophy and Critical Thinking/Writing. I have over 7 years experience as a university professor teaching courses in Philosophy (Introduction to Philosophy, Ethics, and Business Ethics) as well as Core Humanities Courses. I am driven by my love of the discipline of Philosophy itself, but also the critical thinking/reading/writing skills it develops. Although I primarily teach Philosophy courses, I also have 5 years experience tutoring students in college writing across varying humanities courses, including English, Sociology, and History.

I have an earned Ed.D in Philosophy and Pedagogy, and have developed a model of teaching that is effective with all students and their individual strengths/weaknesses. My goal, no matter what the content, is to get students to develop their own critical thinking skills to make them all around more logical thinkers and writers. These skills are applicable across varying disciplines, but my specific expertise is developing these in the context of philosophy. I have the ability and success at making difficult and often confusing texts simple and relevant for students, by using guided reading techniques, informal logic exercises, and guided oral facilitation to scaffold students to where they need to get to. I am both passionate and methodical in my teaching and want to expose students to important philosophical ideas that will carry them through other courses and life in general.

Although primarily a college level professor, I am adept at college writing and reading in general because of the logic skills that philosophy utilizes so I am able to assist students in comprehension, paper writing, building ideas and argumentation to make them successful college writers.

Feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss how best I can suit your specific needs. My CV is available upon request.
