Philosophy / Critical Thinking
I am a Ph.D. researcher and a philosophy tutor, currently employed by the University of Essex. Born and raised in Finland, I have called the U.K. my home 11 years. I originally came to this country for an undergraduate degree, but ended up staying much longer. I wasn't put off by British the weather, damp housing, instant coffee, or the acute sensitivity to social embarrassment. One thing led to another, and I have lived up and down the land, from Glasgow to Brighton, and find myself happily in now in Wivenhoe, Essex.
Having lived in three different countries, I am specially sensitive to the difficulties that feeling alienated from one's surroundings can generate for academic learning. I am empathic and kind, and since I enrolled to university at the age of 24 after a stint in working life, I can relate to people from all walks of life.
I have taught at university year one level for three years, including an introductory module in philosophy, a course in political philosophy, and a module in topical issues such as climate change and its relevance to philosophy of science and public policy. During this time I held regular one to one essay tutorials before and after essay submissions, and gave individual feedback to students on seminar performance.
My approach is based on asking questions and provoking the student to discover the interconnectedness of central themes and questions. I follow contemporary politics, cinema, and music passionately and prefer to link theoretical issues to examples from these areas.
