Methodology

My teaching methods encourage discussion so that we can engage with the assigned material, but there is flexibility so students can explore their interests. Students are encouraged to bring me essay plans that we can discuss on an one-on-one and I will provide constructive and informative feedback.

Background

I have a PhD in Philosophy and experience in teaching philosophy at The University of Nottingham in the United Kingdoms. Student evaluations of my teaching have been positive and highlight my approach-ability and enthusiasm. My Masters and BA were both in philosophy.
