I am a recently retired philosophy professor living in Northampton, Massachusetts. Please come and see me if you need help with a philosophy paper or thesis, or if you are just stuck and need to talk things over confidentially. I can also offer straight philosophy instruction. I love to work with students to help them get their ideas and arguments out and to polish and present their work in the best possible way. One part of my own college and university teaching has been to work individually with students on their papers, and to teach the right way to write a philosophy paper. (In fact there are several right ways!) I am especially interested in helping students to understand and to avoid plagiarism of any sort, and to help them to find the source, through discussion and editing, from which their own ideas can flow. $100/hr, including a free cup of tea. Pro bono consultations are possible, also including the cup of tea.
