Doctor of Philosophy gives ethics, philosophy, and logic lessons to students and professionals.

Methodology

I am an experienced teacher with a demonstrated history of working in higher education and special education. I teach in one-on-one and group settings with lessons customized to the needs of the student(s). My lessons are interdisciplinary and taught from a historical perspective whenever applicable. I am an approachable teacher who welcomes student interaction and argumentation.

I am skilled in Teaching, Research, Academic Writing, Grant Writing, Higher Education, Special Education, Bioethics, Counseling, Public Speaking, Tutoring, Editing, Publishing and Community Outreach. Strong education professional with a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) focused in Philosophy from Fordham University.

Background

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. I have also tutored in special education settings and ESL, international, and learning disabled students.

My lessons, tutoring, and letters of recommendation have enabled students to succeed by achieving high grades and test scores, as well as entrance into selective study abroad and leadership programs.
