Teaching Experience

sharon-mccutcheon-532782-unsplashEffective and engaging teaching is important to me, and I take the task of teaching seriously. This page has information on my past and current teaching experiences.

This academic year, I am teaching PHI 3500: Theory of Knowledge and PHI 5330: Ethics Law and Health Syllabus in the Philosophy Department at Wayne State University.

During my final two years at Harvard Law School, I served as a Teaching Assistant for the First-Year Legal Research & Writing Program as part of my role as a member of the Board of Student Advisers. In that role, I work with students one-on-one to help them develop and revise their legal writing and to build skills as legal researchers.
