"When I tell strangers that I am an ABD (All But Dissertation) graduate student in philosophy, they might perceive me as a limited specialist, with skills pertinent only to my dissertation on social epistemology and other philosophical topics, including social-political thought and Chinese philosophy. I'm actually an academic Swiss Army Knife, a flexible mind trained in 20th century intellectual history and science and technology studies (a result of my MA in philosophy from Virginia Tech), a tutor of college students in nearly every 100-200 level course (from American history and communications to writing and math), a writing consultant who helped writers find their voice in a plethora of projects, and a test prep teacher and tutor for the SAT, ACT, MCAT, and LSAT.

I'm here to help you develop and grow as a person, by aiding you to become a better student, a more effective communicator, and a better critical thinker. If you need help passing a class, I know what professors think and what they expect--the result of over ten years teaching and tutoring across the humanities. If you need help writing a paper, I have the experience, as a graduate writing consultant at UB's Center for Excellence in Writing, to work on an array of projects (resumes and CVs, personal statements, English essays, graduate work in a plethora of disciplines). If you need to pass a standardized test, I have worked for over five years as a tutor and teacher at three different companies, developing a unique, specialized approach to tutoring that has yielded success for students taking college and graduate-level tests. Finally, I tutor students in a variety of subjects and look forward to helping anyone who is interested in expanding their knowledge, developing their skills, or simply learning about an array of subjects across the humanities." less...
