Personal Description:

I recently gained my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Glasgow (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 highly respected venues, including Oxford University Press. I have also worked as a freelance journalist for Scotland on Sunday.

I have lived and worked in Glasgow for many years, and in what spare time I have (which is not very much!), I enjoy, among other things, translating famous philosophical passages into Jive - an African American vernacular most associated with 1930s jazz musicians.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught philosophy at the University of Glasgow for over eight 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 at Glasgow. I work as a visiting lecturer at the Glasgow School of Art, and as a widening participation tutor in schools across Glasgow as part of Glasgow University's widening participation programme. I also work with young children for the Children's Wood Charity - for which I am a trustee. I have privately tutored for six years.

Tutoring Approach:

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.
