I recently graduated summa cum laud from Taylor University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Philosophy. While there I tutored philosophy, political science, and religious studies students for two years. I am currently working on a Master of Arts in Philosophy at Georgia State University, where I serve as a teaching assistant and writing consultant. I currently tutor in the areas of test preparation, government, philosophy, and religious studies. My passion for education stems from the joy I find in helping students achieve their goals. My teaching style involves asking lots of strategic questions to help students discover answers for themselves, a process which my students typically find quite empowering. Still, I recognize that each student has unique needs, questions, and learning styles, so I strive to listen first and then craft individualized plans to meet each student’s particular objectives. In my spare time I like to get outside – hiking, playing soccer, or volunteering at my church’s community garden. I also enjoy reading, watching football, and cooking.
