I give lessons, with respect to students, at various levels-----i.e., from the High School level, to the College/University level------based on my teaching experience of over 30 years. My lesson structure, varies------depending on the level of the students. My characteristics are tailored to fit the requirements, etc., of each student.
Bachelor's of Science in Physics and Bachelor's of Arts in History as undergraduate. In graduate school, focused on International Studies, the subject matter of my M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. The field allowed me to bring together my broad training in economics, social science, and philosophy.
My teach methodology varies student by student. Everyone has their own style of learning: visual, verbal, and repetitive styles are more of my popular ones, along with applying the history in story style and/or in relevance to today's world. It depends upon the student.
I earned my B.A. cum laude in English Literature (U.N.M.), a master's degree in Creative Writing in English (U.N.M.), a second master's degree in Theology with distinction (Colgate Rochester), and a Ph.D. in Contemporary Theology (Fordham University). I have taught at the college level for 30+ years and mentored many students.
My teaching method works for anyone for anyone from elementary school to college. -I usually will ask if anyone has any question before reviewing the material that needs to be learned. -I'd then review with the students. -Finally, I'd ask what confused the students and try to clarify by having a meaningful conversation with the student or group of students.
I am offering to be a tutor for introductory philosophy. I am assuming that the student will be taking a class at the college level in the subject. I would try to get to know them and find out what their difficulties or challenges were in mastering the subject and try to help them on that basis. I am a strong believer in the importance of the art of listening in any kind of human communication.
I can teach anyone of any age interested in these fields. Depending on the course of study, I can either help a student achieve a higher grade in a class they are taking or build a lesson structure unique to the student with respect to their area of interest. Students should expect to engage in discussion and analysis of the subject matter rather than being lectured to.
I teach using an alternation between the Socratic method of asking questions and inspiring inquiry, on the one hand, and Nietzschean aphorism and assertion on the other, which provokes critical engagement and independent development of perspective.
Have you ever wondering what philosophy is? Or are you simply curious about how philosophy can enhance people's lives and their values? Philosophy helps people understand themselves and their lives better.
I studied Communications at Grand Valley State University and film at Columbia College Chicago. My belief is that everyone has their own story to tell and I want to help give individuals the tools and confidence they need to communicate their ideas.
I completed my PhD in 2006 in Social Studies and Global Education at The Ohio State University. Between 2006 and 2009, I taught in the College of Education at Winona State University and successfully served on multiple department, College, University, community, and state-wide committees. During the 2009-10AY I taught Introduction to Chicano Studies and Introduction to Ethnic Studies at St.
I am a dissertation student with a 4.0 GPA. I possess excellent written, oral, and electronic communication skills. I have experience working with primary and high school students as well as college and grad students.
I currently teach political philosophy and cultural studies (anthropology) to middle and high school students. Through current events like the September 11, 2001 attacks, and pop-culture topics such as the Golden Era of Animation (think WW2 era Looney Tunes), I ask students to think about and reason through the subtle nuances and themes of each topic.
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.
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.
My teaching method varies depending on who I am teaching. I like to prepare a general overview of the class for the first lesson and once I meet with the student I can then adjust and create a lesson plan that best suits the student. I am patient and as a tutor, I am here as a tool for whoever needs me, therefore, I can adjust to any circumstances to best fit who I am helping.
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.
My teaching method is tailored to the student. I discuss with the student his or her goals and proceed on that basis. I am willing to work with the student on prior tests, quizzes, or homework assignments. My primary goal is to teach UNDERSTANDING and not simply memorization.
I meet my students where they are at in terms of skills and needs. We work on developing skills through doing drills, work on case writing and develop strong and ethical research practices.
My lessons are based around a mixture of direct instruction (going over slides with notes, active reading) and discussions. History helps us to discover who we are and how the world around us came to be; as such, I focus heavily on understanding the context of historical events and their participants.
My plan is to become a teacher in the near future because I love education and see it as a key to success. My passion for teaching began in a martial arts class. When I received my black belt in karate, I became a instructor. It showed me how much I enjoyed teaching. My focus as a tutor is to help students achieve a passion for education to reach far and beyond their educational goals.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master of Arts in Public History from American Military University. I have worked over a decade in special government projects. All of this experience has taught me the value of utilizing a variety of methods to teach lessons which are understood and contextualized for the individual student.
I am a 16-year Doctorate-holder, who has taught, on-line, on-ground, and everywhere in between, preparing easily digestible lessons for each student, on a wide swath of subjects within the several disciplines, and am prepared to walk you through each subject!
I hold a BA in Political Science and History, and have taught all subjects and levels of Social Studies ( grades 6-12) in public, private, and charter schools for the last 7 years. I teach through engaging storytelling and humor, which I use to help students identify and articulate the broader patterns which characterize the Humanities.

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.
My life is an often contradictory juxtaposition of highly analytical predictive analysis and planning coupled with impulsive, seat-of-my-pants vectors which I can only support via creative instinct and guesswork.
I am a firm believer in adopting a growth mentality. I believe that everybody can learn and that the goal of an education should be the cultivation of the individual. If an individual improves their ability to critically think, write, and speak, then they are prepared to succeed in any discipline and aspect of life.
My teaching methodology is based on Socrates, the Greek Philosopher. He taught through conversation. He did not lecture. Learning was something that happened to him and his students.
I approach each topic by looking at the foundations surrounding the subject. Should a subject require a lot of foundation, said foundation will be explained first, before being combined together during the conclusion. Should a topic be more simplistic, then foundation will be explained while the topic is explored naturally.
