Personal Description:

I am an Oxford graduate student studying on the B.Phil. in Philosophy. I graduated with first-class honours in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Warwick, where I majored in Philosophy and got the top first in second year. I am friendly, patient and approachable (if I may say so myself!) I really believe in education. I grew up in Oxford, am based here as a graduate student. From July 2018 I will be available for remote tuition. I have tutored students in AQA A-Level Philosophy and OCR Religious Studies. I can also teach Critical Thinking. I can also support other students, including those doing the EPQ in something philosophical. I am happy to discuss tutoring for other purposes, for example learning for fun/development, essay-writing, and helping less-supported students pass entrance exams, e.g. Oxford's TSA. Please do get in touch! :)

Tutoring Experience:

Relevant experience:
• A-Level philosophy tutor
• Taught in school in Accra, Ghana
• Led university revision classes
• Given talks at conferences, at home and abroad
• Tutored GCSE students
• Led group of volunteer students teaching politics to primary school students
• Worked with young people at the Parasol Project, Oxford

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor teaching to the student. I offer a free initial session with interested students in which we discuss how I can help. I believe that outt of interest springs harder work and results. Seeing the relevance and meaning of what you are studying therefore really helps. Effective communication is another important plank of my approach. This encompasses breaking down ideas into manageable chunks when teaching, using examples and step-by-step explanation. It also involves open discussions about what the student wants, and am open to both more tutor-led and student-led approaches. I believe my approach is friendly, patient and efficient.
