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.
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.
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 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 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.

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 use the Socratic Method of asking leading questions to draw out what the student wants to write for their essays. Additionally, I ask the students about their interests so as to develop a rapport with them. Using this rapport I craft examples around their interests to help them better understand the material they are studying.
I am an engaging tutor with over four years experience teaching students at the university level. Utilizing a variety of teaching techniques tailored to the student, my approach is informal, but results driven. I am not only focused on improving marks, but also providing the essential knowledge base that will enable my students to succeed in the future.
Dear students, I am a passionate lecturer with extensive knowledge in Philosophical studies and Anthropological Sciences. I hold Licentiate and Masters Degrees in Philosophy. My academic dissertation was on the works of John Ralws in view of Social systems of justice and fairness in socio-economic and political spheres. I believe that knowing to do right thing is the highest level of justice.
I am a general Ed/Special Ed profession. I utilize differentiated and individualized instruction. I am heavy on lecture style with manipulatives, visual aids, and graphic organizers. My students will learn through repetition and application. I evaluate based on performance.
Associates of General Studies from Blackhawk College in Moline, IL. Three Bachelor of Arts in History, Philosophy, and Journalism from Western Illinois Univeristy in Macomb, IL. Continued education credits in Master of Arts in History from Western Illinois University in Macomb, IL.
Master of Education in Pedagogical Sciences from Andres Bello Catholic University, located in Caracas, Venezuela. Experience in Preschool, Elementary, Middleschool, Highschool, Adult Education, Organizational Training and Private Tutoring.
Far too often our education system runs loops teaching the same material over and over again, teaching to the next standardized test. It focuses on short term memory, which is fantastic for getting quick results on upcoming tests. It fails, however, in long term knowledge retention.
My teaching method is auto-didactic, meaning that I teach students how to teach themselves. I focus on this by having students learn how to dissect information and make it applicable; mainly via writing and multimedia exercises which demonstrate understanding and mastery of the subject in question.
I believe that history doesn't have to be this boring lecture where you fall asleep. I think it should be a fun class, where you learn everything there is to know about the past, present, and maybe even the future. I have tutored foreign exchange students, and even preschoolers.
I studied English literature at UCLA. Eventually threw it over for philosophy. Law school was surprisingly stimulating and I love practicing law. Mostly. I am now taking Spanish and coding lessons and i’m financing them by teaching what I know.
I aim for a Socratic style of pedagogy that emphasizes developing a student's critical thinking skills and engaging their enthusiastic interest in the subject as the best means to mastering it.
I'm in my last year of college and I love psychology. Psychology was one of the classes I had to take for my degree and I passed it with an A. My teaching style is interactive. If you just read out of a textbook, it will be boring. So I'll have activities set aside for our subject to keep the students on their toes.
Thousands of teachers can teach you philosophy. Find private lessons closest to you.
Our teachers are frequently sought after.
