Philosophy Professor (PhD) Gives Private or Group Lessons in Los Angeles and Surrounding Areas

I teach all levels and styles. I tailor my teaching to the individual needs of each person. Sometimes formal lecture works best. Other times a casual discussion of a philosophical issue is what's most effective. The goal of my teaching in this format (outside of the classroom) is to simply do some philosophy and have fun with it. Maybe you want to talk philosophy while walking in the park.

Joshua
1st lesson offered free !

Experienced Humanities Tutor With Advanced Degree Available In Person or Online Tutoring

I always prefer to teach using the Socratic method, that is, by asking questions in an attempt to prompt the student to reach an answer on their own accord. This method leads to better retention of information and the ability to deploy concepts in critical thinking exercises, as opposed to simply on tests.

“Great Books” tutor with experience engaging in intense writing and discussion on ancient, world, and US history.

When it comes to teaching and tutoring History, I generally adopt an approach that blends recall with Socratic inquiry. This back and forth, in which the tutor maintains an intense discussion with the student, allows that student to come to their own conclusions about difficult works, and to communicate those conclusions in clear, articulate responses.

Socrates and Jesus are amazing teachers, and their methods are my inspiration. Stories and critical thinking are the keys to opening the door of lifelong education. We are wired to remember stories more than lists of facts, so the knowledge gained from them will stay with us forever.

The Socratic method is effective in engaging students to develop a reasoned approach to everyday questions. Through this dialogue, a connection can be made between historical origins as they relate to the present. Therefore, readings and questions that relate to them are crucial to understanding, and form the basis for evaluating mastery of the instructional material.

Be supported by the best tutors in your philosophy lessons

For teachers looking to educate students in philosophy, there are several different lesson plans they can start out with. Understanding the history of philosophy is important as it underlines how the topic has come to pass and the greater evolution it has gone through over the years, ranging from ancient Greek and Egyptian times to present day. Philosophy tutors can work with students in these different structural courses as well, so providing helpful insights into these historical elements can prove helpful. For an English tutor or another individual who is looking to learn Latin and provide this kind of educational assistance, being able to go through and create an excellent Resume - cover letter’s writing prep lessons can prove helpful. Dissertation and thesis’s writing preparation tutors can also prove helpful when it comes to assisting students in learning the historical importance of philosophy and how it interacts with current, modern day philosophy. Being able to assist with these kinds of topics would prove helpful for all teachers and tutors.
