I am a Columbia University graduate student in Philosophy. I have been tutoring for the last 6 years professionally. In general, I try to relate new material that I am tutoring back to concepts that a student has already grasped so that unfamiliar material takes on a familiar character. Furthermore, I try to have a student do some writing, some reading, and some discussion in each lesson, and in this way engage the main three modes of learning. That being said, I try to modify my teaching style to best benefit the type of student I am tutoring. Over the last year, I have been teaching test-prep for the ACT, SAT, and High School Entrance Exams, as well as high school writing; US History; Literature; and Chemistry, and all grade-school subjects. When I am not working, I spend my time reading, playing chess, writing poetry, going to museums, and taking philosophy classes.
