I have been professionally engaged as an educator for more than twelve years, beginning in 2007 teaching English as a second language. From 2011-2016, I taught at Baruch College, a senior school of the City University of New York, where I gave more than twenty-five philosophy classes spread across nine different courses. Since taking up my position in Cambridge, I have been employed as Teaching Fellow at Downing College and Preceptor at Corpus College, where I have given numerous undergraduate supervisions and have served as supervisor for two Masters Theses.
While serving as an instructor at Baruch, one of my courses was chosen as the Philosophy Department’s sole demonstration class for its five-year review (2013), and in 2015 I was invited by the college to design a new course titled ‘Ethics and Critical Thinking’ that was subsequently adopted by both the Philosophy Department and the Communications Department as a prerequisite for new undergraduates. In 2017, this teaching record was recognized when I was selected from more than six hundred part-time instructors at Baruch College for the College’s Presidential Excellence Award for Distinguished Teaching.
Here are some syllabuses for some of my past courses. All of the syllabuses were designed from scratch for each course. If you have any questions about courses past or present, please feel free to get in touch.
Class Discussion Materials
I make frequent use of discussion exercises in class, often using short vignettes and thought experiments, again specially tailored for each class. Here are some examples of my favorite discussion exercises.
