I have been teaching college-level philosophy courses since 2015.
At Tufts, I began as a Teaching Assistant for Nancy Bauer (Feminist Philosophy) and Dan Dennett (Philosophy of Mind). At IU, I have taught sections as an Associate Instructor in a variety of courses, ranging from Ethics to Logic. As a tutorial leader for Philosophical Writing and Method, I have enjoyed working closely with students to develop their ability to express fine distinctions and communicate their views clearly and precisely.
After completing my Certificate in College Pedagogy from IU in 2019, I designed and taught my own curriculum for a course on the Philosophy of Race, Gender, and Sexuality in the Spring of 2020. This course began with in-person instruction, and quickly transitioned to an online format due to the pandemic.
In July, 2021 I began a three-year term on the APA Committee on the Teaching of Philosophy, which organizes the Teaching Hub and APA sessions on pedagogy.
I am also TESOL certified (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Between 2016 and 2020, I taught English as a foreign language to English-language learners. Having taught more than 850 online classes with more than 280 student, I learned to adjust my teaching style to individual students and to facilitate online classroom management.
