I am excited at the prospect of working with you as a tutor. My previous tutoring experience includes personal tutoring and tutoring through the Midtown Educational Foundation in Chicago.
These experiences have planted a passion for tutoring in me. I enjoy watching my students learn and grow not only in their subject matter, but as individuals.
I received a rigorous intellectual education at the University of Chicago, and I recently finished a master's degree in political philosophy in Europe. My strengths are ESL, literature, philosophy, and writing.
I look forward to working with you soon!

What is your teaching philosophy?
Philosophy, in many ways, is the pursuit of wisdom and truth. I teach philosophy by explaining philosophical concepts, and then dialoguing with the student so they can understand it. We also do a close reading of the text.
