About Matthew

My name is Matthew. I received a BA in philosophy from Binghamton University and a Master's in Theological Studies from Boston College. Currently, I am a adjunct with SUNY Empire where I have taught Intro to Philosophy, Ethics, and Business Ethics. I am currently for more teaching opportunities.

But enough about me! What about you? What are you struggling with? Perhaps it is philosophy. What did Aristotle mean by form and matter? What is this business about Plato and the cave? Or perhaps you're struggling with more modern subjects. Who was Kant? What on earth is he talking about when he mentions the "categorical imperative"? What does Descartes mean by cogito ergo sum? In addition to modern and ancient philosophy, I can help you with 20th century analytic/continental philosophy. Whether you are having trouble understanding Heidegger and Husserl or Kripke and Wittgenstein, I can help you. Furthermore, I would be comfortable tutoring on the subject of introductory logic (i.e basic proofs, truth tables, and some predicate logic).

Before I close I would briefly like to touch upon my teaching philosophy. I believe in treating students as partners in education. It is my hope that through mutual respect and dialogue, we will have an enriching and beneficial experience together. That said, I am going to challenge you! I don't believe in giving away "easy answers." In the long run, it will only be a disservice to you. Instead, I want you to think, reason, and problem solve! It is my hope that, I will not only help you through your classes, but help you create a better understanding of the subject matter in general.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about information covered (or not covered!) here.

P.S. I am willing to offer a free "meet and greet" first session.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I received a Master's in Theological Studies from Boston College. Therefore, I feel that I am able to teach religious/Biblical studies. I own a great deal of literature on the matter.

Philosophy

I have a BA in philosophy, and I studied the subject in grad school. I own a large collection of literature on philosophical matters, and I try to stay up to date on current trends.
