Study Skills

I currently teach Executive Functioning (organizational and study skills) through a tutoring agency that I work with. Besides my experience directly tutoring it, I have received approximately 10 hours of direct training in this area from a tutor/mentor.


Logic

I have years of experience tutoring, including tutoring philosophy. I also received an A+ in my introduction to formal logic course, a score that required me to earn a curved score above 100%. I have an intuitive and comprehensive understanding of Semantic, Syntactic, and Predicate logic as well as significant experience with Modal logic.
