Information About Xain - Whyteleafe tutor
I am a Law student in my second year at Queen Mary University of London (amongst the top 4 best law schools in the UK). My interests include Philosophy, Neurobiology, Anthropology, Psychology, Physics, Philosophy and Logic. I play football every week and spend my time practising playing the piano, singing and modern street dancing.
Although I am not studying Philosophy and Ethics as a degree, I have a very wide knowledge on the subject as I read books of Philosophy in my spare time every week. In addition to Philosophy I also read and have a good grasp on many aspects of science such as quantum mechanics, evolutionary biology and psychology. This, I believe, helps me consolidate my knowledge of philosophy as I am able to have a unique edge in applying and analysing any philosophical theories.
I am familiar with many world religions and religions that used to exist from paganish antiquity to the present day which also strengthens my knowledge. I was also awarded the Philosophy & Ethics and Government & Politics medals in my school. Moreover, I attained over 90% in my final Philosophy & Ethics grade.
Books that I have read include: 'Thus Spake Zarathustra', 'The Wealth Of Nations', 'Das Kapital','The Origin of Species', 'The Leviathan', 'The Republic, 'Feynman lectures', 'The Qur'an', and 'The Bible'.
Although this is my first time as an official tutor, I did tutor most of my classmates at school and those in a year below me for AS-level Philosophy & Ethics. I have an experience in tutoring my younger cousin who does GCSE Philosophy and Theology (separately) of which he attains high grades in all his homework pieces.
I possess an effective formula of exam technique that can assist the tutee in attaining the best grades. Exam structure is imperative and if done correctly. My aim is to teach the basics in an intelligible manner, but give the tutee knowledge that most students would either not have or not think of using in a Philosophy exam. Being 19 years of age, I understand that being taught in certain ways can be tedious and unlikely to evoke interest; this I know because I felt that way about my teachers in school. Conveying knowledge in tutoring is difficult but if done concisely and explicitly it tends to work. I believe in encouraging the tutee to argue with me as Philosophy is a very contentious topic and for the best grades a personal opinion is required throughout the exam, thus allowing the tutee to respond and debate with any point that I raise is highly productive.
