About Brandon

I am currently a PhD student in the department of Philosophy at Rice University. As such, I specialize in writing and reading comprehension but I also enjoy teaching critical thinking, logic, math, test prep, study skills, and religion.

I care deeply about the education of my students, and I excel at finding creative, student-specific ways of grasping difficult concepts.

I have lived nearly half my life overseas and have much experience working with people for whom English is not their native language.

I also have several years of experience tutoring children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders. I find this work especially fulfilling.

Whatever your tutoring needs, I look forward to working with you!

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.

Autism

I have several years of experience working with children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders. I have training in both ABA methods and the Mandt system.

While much of my work in this area has focused on behavior therapy, I have done academic tutoring with these clients as well. I find this work particularly enjoyable.

Bible Studies

My B.A. is in biblical theology. Whether you need help with theological questions, hermeneutical methods, or just biblical history, I think I'd be happy to help!

Logic

I have completed multiple graduate courses in first-order predicate logic. My M.A.-granting institution's stated aim is to prepare graduates to teach all core areas of analytic philosophy at an introductory level. This includes logic.

Whether you need help with basic reasoning skills (such as identifying logical fallacies), logical translations, truth trees, recursive proofs, or derivations I can help you.

Public Speaking

I spent seven years as a minister and much of my job consisted of giving sermons numerous times in a week. I can offer techniques to reduce anxiety as well as teach you how to organize your thoughts and speech in a way that will be easily understood by your audience.

Religion

I have a B.A. in biblical theology and have also spent several years living in the Middle East where I studied Islamic theology.

Study Skills

As a PhD student, study skills are an essential element of my everyday work. I can help you organize your study calendar, determine study methods that work for you, and help you learn to identify what part of your material (in any subject) is important and deserving of focus.
