"TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've had vast experience in teaching and tutoring, including teaching history and philosophy at a graduate level, mentoring college students, and college career prep with high school students. I've been a guest speaker at high school graduations, university assemblies, Rotary, camps, and conferences. I currently teach at a university. I'll take every opportunity I can to help someone acquire knowledge and reach their goals.

EDUCATION

I hold a B.A. in Philosophy from U.C. Berkeley, an MSc in Philosophy from the University of Edinburgh, an M.Div from Princeton, and a doctorate from Fuller.

WRITING AND EDITING EXPERIENCE

I've also done a lot of publishing. I've got three books to my name and a couple dozen articles in newspapers, magazines, and journals. If you need help developing your ability to understand complex ideas and communicate effectively, I'd love to help.

I'm well versed in English literature, creative writing, editing, and publishing. I've made a small career from my own writings and can teach you how to communicate effectively and persuasively.

Tutoring can be fun! I'll help you accomplish what you want quickly and easily in an encouraging and positive way. Let me know when you want to begin!

LANGUAGE EXPERIENCE

American English is my first language, but I have also studied Korean, Spanish, and Chinese at a college level, and I can translate Koine Greek and Ancient Hebrew. I have some experience in conversational French.

RESULTS

One student was recently accepted into what he called "the college of my dreams" after we worked on the application together, and I've helped multiple students attending Ivy League schools.

I've helped several students pass the CBEST, the most recent of which noted that score was substantially higher than when she had attempted the test without tutoring.

Another student preparing for the SAT raised his score from 1170 to 1300 in three months of tutoring with me." less...
