About Christian

I have an Honors BA in philosophy and political science from Marymount Manhattan College, and an MA in the humanities from the University of Chicago. I am currently working on a Ph.D. in philosophy. By now I have more than eight years of tutoring/teaching experience.
Learning experiences should be engaging, fun, and challenging. I have taught at various colleges including The University of Chicago, Harold Washington College, and high schools around Chicago. Additionally, I have tutored students in private and group settings. By teaching all age groups and levels, I have developed a pedagogy based on patience, empathy, and exploration. Often the problem is not understanding a subject, rather it is understanding why the subject is important. My role is therefore not only to provide students with competencies within a given subject but also to provide them with the tools and mindset to continue to learn and explore. I try to embrace engaged learning by connecting whatever I am teaching to interests and activities of the student. All knowledge exists in a network and I strive to make students see the interconnectedness of all subjects (skateboarding and Socrates is not a far-fetched combination at all).
Learning is difficult and writing is even harder. I help students develop clarity, structure, organization, and cogent arguments. This is not just a matter of editing single assignments. Rather, I teach students how to always construct good arguments that can withstand scrutiny. Since I have experience in teaching formal logic, I make sure to always explain the underlying mechanics of the arguments made. This way, students can always reproduce their own arguments with competence and truly own their opinions.
Finally, I am patient and will never give up on a student. I understand that when seeking out a tutor help is needed, and I am here to help.

Very excited to be working with you.

PS: I am probably the only tutor who can also help you win a dance off
