Personal Description:

Hi, my name is Ben and I am currently studying an MSc in Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. I studied my undergraduate BA in Philosophy at Cardiff University where I gained a first class degree with an average mark of 75. I went to school in Surrey and grew up in South West London. I also love music and have played trumpet in a number of jazz bands in the past.

Tutoring Experience:

While I was at sixth form I was involved in a scheme to help younger students with their writing skills. This allowed me to gain an understanding of how to provide targeted feedback to the student I was assisting. While at university I was president of the Cardiff University Philosophy Society and as part of this I set up and ran an essay 'surgery' where myself and other students would read the essay's of first year students and give detailed feedback.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to focus on close reading of texts alongside writing essays and practice exams. Practising and becoming comfortable extracting content from a piece of writing and being able to effectively communicate ones thoughts is the best way to improve ones grades. I aim to help my tutees overcome problems they may have with elements of the course they are struggling with and assist them in turning these weaknesses into strong parts of a clear piece of written work.
