I have an MA in Religious Studies from the University of Chicago; an MA in Philosophy from Boston University; and a BA in Classics and Philosophy from Calvin College. My professional experience ranges widely over the field of education. I've been a Philosophy Professor at a number of community colleges, a Teaching Assistant at a major research university, a Math Tutor with Chicago Public Schools, and more. My primary areas of interest are Classics, English, History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies, but I enjoy tutoring other subjects as well. I especially love helping students find (or fashion) their own voice as writers. To that end, I'm available for support at any stage of the writing process: selecting a topic, brainstorming ideas, developing an outline, composing a first draft, revising for grammar and style, and so on. I also have extensive experience with Standardized Tests; I've prepared for, succeeded on, and tutored students in the ACT, SAT, GRE, and LSAT. As a result, I command a wide knowledge base and a diverse set of tools, insights, and strategies for success on test day. My aim as a tutor is not only to share these resources with students, but to help students develop their own.
