I earned my PhD in Philosophy from Fordham University. I wrote my dissertation on ethics and the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. Over 11 years I taught 2,500 university students spread across 93 classes from 7 universities.
Now I offer self-motivated independent learners around the world the chance to take small group or 1-on-1 classes. My small group online classes involve live, interactive class discussions with me and your fellow students held over videoconference (using Google Hangout, which downloads in just seconds). All my classes involve personalized attention to your own ideas and questions. Course content winds up tailored to your interests as lively and rigorous class discussions determine where exactly we go. Classes are flexible enough to meet the needs of both beginners and students with existing philosophical background.
My classes require no outside reading or homework or grades--only a once weekly 2 hour commitment that fits the schedules of busy people. There are no penalties for absences. Even if you can only attend a couple times a month, you're always welcome. Classes are by subscription. Once you subscribe, you're enrolled in the class and automatically billed by PayPal for $39.99 weekly until whenever you want to cancel. Any time I cancel class or you are absent (for whatever reason) you are refunded your weekly payment. Unlike with your gym membership, you will never get stuck paying for time you don't use. And when you're ready to cancel your subscription you can self-cancel with PayPal directly or ask me to unsubscribe you myself. When you're satisfied with a particular class, you can either switch to another class or cancel your subscription at that time.
My classes are university quality but I offer no university credit whatsoever. New classes start up all the time and you can join existing groups of students if you want and stay long enough to get a full and thorough complement of classes on your topic. 1-on-1 classes can be arranged by appointment if you write me at email@example.com. For more on how my classes work in general, read the FAQ or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
