I'm a aspiring academic with a major in philosophy. I've published my work in several academic journals, presented at many graduate-level conferences across the world, and have a 3.92 GPA (CV available upon request). My academic work focuses primarily upon philosophy and political theory, though I am also an avid reader of intellectual and cultural history, biology, anthropology, and literary criticism. Right now, I reside in Westchester NY, as I'm on break from Reed due to a migraine issue.
I have tutored extensively in reading, writing, history, logic, and biology, and offered services as a college counselor (I've been accepted into two Ivy League universities). Recommendations from prior clients available upon request.
I tutor partially because I plan to teach professionally - I'm someone who is ultimately going to venture into academia, so it is something of a preparation for my future career. I also love tutoring for its own sake: for me, it is a genuine joy to help a student develop their cognitive and creative capacities. The ultimate goal of all my tutoring is not merely to help students succeed in an area they might be currently struggling in, but also help them develop habits of mind that will allow them to critically engage with the world for their entire life.

I've always been something of a nerd at heart: I love to delve into arcane subjects that, despite their seeming abstractness, tell us something significant about the world. I spend much of my time reading and listening to lectures. When I'm not doing that, I collect audio gear, listen to music, watch the latest Netflix shows, consume popular political media, and play with my two dogs, Gina and Ginger.
