I'm a world literature, philosophy, and psychology nut. My days are spent at the library or on a nicely shaded public bench consuming and analyzing different modes of thought and perspective as having to do with the basics in our human condition, it's great fun. I've got several years experience in high school and community college of direct tutoring and working with individuals and groups alike to find the topics and areas in which they're interested in. I've worked with many different types of students ranging from those that intellectually surpass myself, but may be having motivational problems, to students who have absolutely no interest in education. I believe there's always a way to get through to somebody. I speak from experience. I dropped out of high school because of a complete lack of interest and a low GPA. I'm now top of my class in my area of study. It's all about finding the spark.
I have no structured method of instruction as it completely depends on the person I'll be working with. This doesn't mean that I show up with no plan; I'll have plenty of questions along the way to keep myself within the sphere of your experience. My specialties are in the writing and personal organization department. Most any paper you have to write you can be assured that I'll be able to help out step by step with not only structural and editorial advice, but with the forming of ideas and a pleasant creative spark. I'm also great help with general studying in the following subjects: English, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy (Western and Eastern), Literature, History, and Humanities.
As for my own education and career path, I've been enrolled at San Diego Mesa College for 3 years now including several semesters on the Dean's List. Alongside my studies I do a lot of my own research having to do with the three subjects mentioned in the first paragraph. Broadly however, I would describe my outlook and teaching style as very fluid and interpersonal with a humanistic twist. I plan on extensively traveling the world to aid in my understanding of it and its people. Currently working towards several degrees including two PhD's in both English and Philosophy.
Looking forward to helping out in any way that I can. I teach to learn.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe heavily in the individual approach. It's all about finding what interests an individual and working from there. Teaching is about expanding within the student what they can uniquely provide for themselves and for the world.
