This is how 2 referees rated William:
Philosophy / Critical Thinking
I am a first year PhD philosophy student at the University of Sheffield. I studied philosophy at Sheffield for my undergraduate degree, and did my masters in philosophy at the University of St Andrews. I also have an A level in philosophy. Importantly, I have extensive knowledge of the key areas of philosophy, including philosophy of mind, philosophy of religion, metaphysics, epistemology, logic, and political philosophy. I have the abilities to tutor in these areas.
My hobbies include playing guitar, playing my cello in the orchestra, going to concerts, travelling and exploring exciting places
I have had experience teaching philosophical logic to first year university philosophy students. I have also spoke at several academic conferences and seminars, where I have presented my own work, and also explained, to an audience, the work of others.
My approach to tutoring is very flexible. I aim to base my tutoring on the material in a syllabus that a student is currently working on. I will go through the material of the syllabus, helping the student to understand that material. I will also help the student to apply that knowledge to specific essay questions, helping the student with essay structure and writing style. The sessions will typically involve discussion between the student and myself during the tutoring sessions about the material that the student is studying, and I will help the student understand problematic areas of this material. We will also work through essay questions together that the student has been set in class.
