Personal Description:

I'm currently studying for a PhD in Political Philosophy at Sussex University and have an extensive background in philosophy and critical thinking. I also have a background in English Literature and Language.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching at Sussex University since January 2013 and am now teaching at King's College, London. I have also been a personal tutor to 4 students, 2 during my undergraduate degree (one of whom did not have English as her first language). Alongside this, from January 2011 until June 2013 I led a philosophy discussion seminar for a group of mature students. Over the last year, I have tutored a number of A/AS level and Undergraduate level students, all of whom found me on FirstTutors.

Tutoring Approach:

Many students are often struggling with their own self-confidence, so I like to try and find ways to encourage them to be more confident in their ability. Because of this, I prefer not to be too rigid in my approach, and instead like to discover what my student needs from me so that I can help them.

I offer a discount on an introductory session (£20 instead of £30). This is because these sessions tend to focus more on finding out what the student wants from me, and working out a schedule that will meet their needs.

I round off to the nearest hour, so am happy to extend a session to 1**Postcode Removed**ns for no extra cost.

I charge £5 extra for travelling outside of the Brighton & Hove area. However, I am also happy to tutor over **Contact Detail Removed**, which would not cost you any extra.
