I gained my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Glasgow in 2016 (with no corrections), although I have studied a range of subjects at university level including English literature, anthropology, evolutionary biology, and evolutionary psychology. I am a published philosopher in respected venues, including Routledge and Oxford University Press. I have also worked as a freelance journalist for Scotland on Sunday.
I have taught philosophy at the University of Glasgow for over ten years and at the University of Stirling for one year. I have taught IT at Glasgow and have lectured courses in philosophy and interdisciplinary studies for the Centre for Open Studies (now Short Courses) at Glasgow. I have worked as a visiting lecturer at the Glasgow School of Art and as a widening participation tutor and lecturer as part of Glasgow University's widening participation programme. I have also worked with young children for the Children's Wood Charity - for which I was a trustee. I have privately tutored for several years.
I tailor each set of sessions to the individual needs of the tutee and I provide extensive written and verbal feedback on students' work. I am a clear communicator with a personable nature that enables a productive teacher-student relationship whatever the requirements of the learner.
