Thomas's Experience

I have taught seven undergraduate courses of up to 35 students focused on the topics of Ethics, Human Nature, Bioethics, Applied Ethics, and Logic. Prior to this, I worked one-on-one in a university writing center assisting undergraduate and graduate students with academic writing in all stages.
