I have a Bachelors of Education and a Certificate in University Teaching Skills, and I have taught philosophy in both high school and college.

My consistently excellent teaching evaluations show that students benefit from the clarity I bring to difficult texts and ideas, my passion and energy for the great books, and my approachability.  (Available here.)

My teaching emphasizes thoughtful discussion, close reading of texts, and argumentative writing.  (See my teaching statement here.)
