About Donald


Bio

Hi everyone! I recently graduated from Virginia Tech with my M.A. in Philosophy (B.S. in Biochemistry), and I have been tutoring/TAing over the last few years. I especially love tutoring subjects such as math and logic, but I also love tutoring English, writing (especially philosophy writing), and other philosophy courses, such as ethics!

I know what it's like to feel lost in your academics and not know how to improve or if it's even worth it. I never received tutoring during my education,...

Hi everyone! I recently graduated from Virginia Tech with my M.A. in Philosophy (B.S. in Biochemistry), and I have been tutoring/TAing over the last few years. I especially love tutoring subjects such as math and logic, but I also love tutoring English, writing (especially philosophy writing), and other philosophy courses, such as ethics!

I know what it's like to feel lost in your academics and not know how to improve or if it's even worth it. I never received tutoring during my education, and now that I've become a tutor myself, I'm realizing how much I would have benefitted from it. Throughout the last couple of years, not much has been more gratifying than seeing my students light up when they finally understand something that had not been clicking for them and knowing that I was a part of the process that led them there.

I have always enjoyed math, and math is primarily what I have been tutoring recently, but I believe that I can help many people with their math homework/questions because of how much experience I have in it myself. I have always done very well in my math (and math-based science) courses, and I have tutored it quite significantly. Not every approach works for everyone, so I have a lot of different tools in tutoring arsenal!

Throughout my M.A. in Philosophy, I spent each semester as a GTA and got to work closely with students, lead discussion sections, and grade their work. Not only do I have a good idea of what professors want their students to achieve, I also believe that I can break that process down and explain it to students in a way that makes the seemingly ambiguous field of philosophy much more manageable.

As I've already said, I know exactly what it feels like to be frustrated with your academic journey. While it may feel like nobody can actually help, that is just a trick your mind plays on you! Please reach out to me so I can hear about what you're dealing with and help you devise a plan to successfully tackle it! Even if you're not struggling but want extra help, please
