TUTORING: Consider me a tour guide and accomplice in the fields of critical theory and philosophy. I'm no expert, but I have a lot of experience in finding answers to questions and for explaining things in multiple ways to make difficult concepts more accessible. ​​​​​​​
My main interests are in political philosophy, existentialism, phenomenology, gender and critical theory. If you don't know where to start, see the list at the bottom of this page where I have listed texts that I've worked with others on, ranked by order of difficulty. If you would like to read a book with me that is not on the list, we can talk about that. If you would prefer a series of discussions on a particular theme, say, a crash course in existentialism that works with you wherever you are already at, then let's talk about that as well. Basically the best bet is to just set up a short (free) consultation with me through email. We can figure out what works best that way. 
PRICING: My prices are set by my availability and goals. It is simply an approximate calculation of my own capacities and the amount of timenergy and attention that I have available and am able to commit to each session. For each hour session I will have spent at least two hours that week preparing, not to mention the last seven years of research that I bring to the session. (Subject to change due to availability) $45 for a single session, $150 for a 6 part series. ​​​​​​​
Thank you!
