Here’s what former students have said:

Dr David Seiple is really a helpful and considerate tutor. I am a non-native speaker, and every time he modifies my articles with patience, and is willing to give suggestions on the logic and framework. Furthermore, he is really friendly and kind, always listening to my concerns. In a word, if you are seeking a tutor, David is highly recommended.

-Shirley Sue

I am a producer, screenwriter and director whose films have been featured at festivals throughout the world — Including Sundance, Telluride, Berlin. For almost twenty years, David Seiple’s warmth, guidance and insight have been invaluable in bringing my stories and ideas to life —from first idea to final draft. 

-Sergio Umansky

I first met Professor Seiple in 2006 for an intro to philosophy class. Since then I have had two courses under his tutelage, and he has been and remains, in my opinion, a highly esteemed mentor and professor of philosophy. Professor Seiple is well-versed in many forms of religion and philosophy, and his passion for scholarship and education is clear and exuberant. His level of patience is surpassed only by his ability to help us in thought and argument. Professor Seiple always encourages just the right questions, so that we ourselves can fit the appropriate pieces into proper place — and there is no shortage of missing pieces in this line of study! I happily give my highest recommendation for study under the guidance of Professor Seiple.
