My specialization is in metaethics and metanormativity, although I've completed coursework in philosophy of language and meaning, logic, philosophy of mind, and lots of political philosophy as well.

Philosophy aims at answering the biggest and most profound questions about life, knowledge, and existence. Sometimes, students need a little help with that. That’s where I come in. I make learning philosophy fun and easy—or at least easier! As a tenured Associate Professor of Philosophy at a university in Los Angeles, I am an internationally recognized expert in my field. I am also a great teacher, with over a thousand consistently excellent reviews from students and peers across my 8+ years as a full-time professor. I generally teach college students, but I also have specialized training in Philosophy for Children (P4C), and I have worked with adult professionals who want to continue the lifelong pursuit of wisdom. So, if you are a high school or college student who needs help writing papers or studying for exams, or if you are the parent of a young student and would like them to develop critical thinking skills and an open mind, or if you are an adult who still wonders about the deep questions and ultimate truths, I can create lessons personalized for your interests and needs. I have taught graduate courses in ethics, hermeneutics, comparative philosophy, and Chinese philosophy. I have also taught subjects like critical thinking, metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, ancient philosophy, existentialism, political philosophy, Buddhism, Asian philosophy, and more. Whatever your interests, you can sign up for private lessons and we can dive in and explore the ideas together.

In this field, I am a much stronger teacher than tutor. There is so much that is done under the title of philosophy that even if one were merely to limit himself to that which was truly worthy, he would drown, especially if the object of consideration begins to include the philosophers and their works and not only the realities of the underlying questions. This is a slower class in which one walks with a guide, where I am the guide. It requires a certain care to avoid falling into a seemingly inescapable skepticism. My doctorate is in historical theology, but theology cannot be exercised without the use of philosophy and so I must think philosophically regularly.
