Personal Description:

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 13 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.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught at university year one level for four years, in philosophy and business & management.
In philosophy, my teaching experience covers 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. In management, I have taught business ethics and business sociology.

Tutoring Approach:

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.

I can travel within Colchester area, but not beyond as I don't have a car. Tutoring meetings can be arranged also on the University of Essex campus.
