Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Law

I am a trial attorney and have practiced for almost 10 years in civil litigation in New York City. I have a JD degree from New York University school of Law and have a lot of experience tutoring first year law students in case briefing, and exam analysis.

Philosophy

I have a BA degree in Philosophy and also studied under Ronald Dworkin, Thomas Nagel, and Liam Murphy while I was in law school at New York University. I've substitute taught for undergraduate philosophy classes and have extensive experience tutoring students in philosophy.

Religion

I have a B.A. degree in philosophy, however the course work for this major included many classes in religion including course work in Judaism, Christianity, Theology, the psychology of religion, introduction to religion, Old Testament, the philosophy of religion, etc. I am as proficient in religion I am in philosophy and have enough credits for a minor in religion, however I simply did not declare a minor while in school so it is not an official title. I also continue to study religions well after graduating college.
