Philosophy / Critical Thinking
I'm an enthusiastic and passionate tutor. I care deeply about my subjects. I have a strong sense of responsibility toward my students and work hard to make sure they get the most out of our sessions.
I graduated with First-Class Honours in Philosophy from Glasgow University in June, 2014. I'm now preparing to undertake an MA in Philosophy at UPF, Barcelona, after a gap of 3-4 years in which I have been teaching, working on languages (Spanish and Catalan), and living in Spain.
I've taught philosophy privately for the last 4 years, since graduating. I also spent one term teaching the AQA A-level syllabus to a full class at a sixth-form college, as well as checking essays and exams, and giving feedback.
In addition, I've taught English as a second language to students of all ages and backgrounds for over 3 years, in businesses, language centres, summer schools and one-to-one.
I generally take a conversational approach to tutoring. My goal is to create a meaningful dialogue in which the student feels comfortable expressing their own ideas. I hope to guide the student in the right direction by understanding and empathising with their own intuitions and trying to see things from their perspective. It seems much "learning" in the box-ticking world of today takes the form of memorisation and regurgitation. My aim is to give students a deeper insight into the subjects they study so that real learning takes place.
