I am a senior college student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, majoring in Philosophy with a minor in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics. I have experience working with elementary and middle school students, but am also prepared to tutor students at the high school level. I am proficient in writing, reading skills, composition, IB Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge tutoring, as well as philosophy and psychology. My favorite area of tutoring is, naturally, philosophy, given the analytical and logically focused virtue of that domain, though writing and reading skills are inherently tied to its practice, and I therefore also favor working with students in these areas. My main goal with students is to endow them with the skills necessary to excel in their chosen fields without the fears of lack of preparation or unfamiliarity with the given subject. I typically begin with a diagnostic overview of the students capabilities, and once their abilities have been assessed, continued with a targeted approach to augment their deficiencies and highlight their individual skills. Beyond academia, I love studying and playing Chess, Tennis, and Skiing, schedule permitting!
