"I'm a professional writer and editor who graduated from Notre Dame magna cum laude in Ancient Greek with a second major in philosophy. I have hundreds of hours' experience tutoring Latin, logic (philosophy), algebra, and standardized test prep (SAT/ACT) online to students ranging from six years old to age 70+.

Formal logic can be so intimidating, and there is so little good help available for it online. Every class approaches the subject a little bit differently and that makes it very hard to find guidance. So let me be your Vergil, escorting you through the hellscape of logic translations, operators, derivations, rules of inference and replacement, nested quantifiers, truth tables, truth trees, and the like. I have taught the basics of logic to a six-year-old -- I can probably teach it to you, too.

Speaking of Vergil, I studied Latin for eight years between high school and college, and I continue to be a lifelong learner in the subject. For fun, I translate Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic Wars. I can meet you in Latin wherever you are. I have a copy of the introductory texts for nearly every major curriculum -- e.g. Ecce Romani, Latin for the New Milennium, The Oxford Latin Course, etc.

But English writing is my true area of expertise. If you've written up a draft of that big paper, then I am just the person to help proofread and polish it for you.

Please send me a message on Wyzant -- I respond quickly and I can find availability for nearly any schedule." less...
