I am a university professor of philosophy with more than 17 years of experience teaching students the kind of critical, analytical, and expressive skills that are tested on the verbal reasoning, reading, and writing sections of the SAT, ACT, and GRE. I taught my first class at Cambridge University, then taught for 7 years as a PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin, and as a professor for the last 10 years at Boston College.
I am a passionate teacher with the skills to teach any student how to improve their writing, reading and critical thinking. My student evaluations have consistently established me as the highest-rated professor in my department, with 75% rating me "excellent" and another 20% rating me "very good." I work carefully with students to improve their ability to comprehend complex readings and arguments, to recognize a thesis and the textual passages that support it, and understand the best grammatical choices to express ideas clearly.
