Graduate in philosophy gives tutoring in philosophy and essay-wring skills to students in Toronto.

Methodology

My teaching pedagogy is one that is tailored to the needs of students; each student has a particular learning style and approach to academia, and I make a point of adapting my pedagogy and methodology to each student's learning style. I believe that the best teaching environments are those that create healthy relationships and render a welcoming context in which to learn.

Background

I have a BA in philosophy from the University of Toronto. I have acted as a teaching assistant for first year philosophy students in which I led tutorials, presided exams and marked papers. I have also taught beginner piano and music theory to students of all ages. You are never too young, or too old, to start learning!
