Personal Description:

I received my PhD from the University of Glasgow in 2011 in the Philosophy of Religion. I have lived and worked in Scotland for ten years and have lectured and tutored at both the University of Glasgow (for 8 years) and the University of Strathclyde (4 years). I am qualified to teach the following subjects: Philosophy, History, Greek, Latin, Drama, Psychology, Sociology and Modern Studies.

Teaching is a passion of mine and I believe that a tutor’s job is very important for the intellectual growth of students, both in and out of university.

Tutoring Experience:

Over the past nine years I have worked with students as a lecturer and as a tutor. I designed and delivered classes on a variety of philosophy subjects for The Department of Philosophy, the Department of Religious Education, the Department of Theology and the Centre for Open Studies at The University of Glasgow. I also have taught for the University of Glasgow’s Summer School. Currently, I teach at the Centre for Lifelong Learning at the University of Strathclyde and I am on Edinburgh Council and West Lothian supply list for teachers.

I have taught Modern Greek at GCSE level (equivalent to Standard Grade) and A-level (equivalent to Higher/Advanced Higher) at the Greek School of Glasgow, and I have taught Greek at Primary Level (ages 6-10) at the Greek School of Reading.

I have experience of teaching children as young as six through to graduates as well as adults, having delivered a series of classes with mature students.

I am happy to work either on a one-to-one basis or in small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

Throughout the courses I have taught, I have developed creative teaching methods to fully engage students and to motivate them. I aim to encourage positive attitudes when learning more about a subject, while nurturing skills as independent learners, no matter the level of student. I find this side of teaching very rewarding. In each subject I teach I seek to encourage free critical thinking and facilitate deeper understanding of the issues and arguments.

I aim to become sensitive to student strengths and weaknesses, in order to adapt to the best learning style and maximise the student's time with me.

My tutoring will be individually tailored to match student needs, and can include any combination of the following:

- Exam preparation
- Essay guidance
- Helping with homework
- Group tutoring
- Proof reading
- Translation services
- Clarifying and explaining complex concepts
- Advice on university undergraduate and postgraduate applications
