I am an MSci Physics and Philosophy (first class) graduate from King’s College London with over 500 hours of online and classroom teaching in mathematics, physics, and philosophy at all levels — with a focus on higher level teaching for university students.
I did my philosophy dissertation on the Many Worlds Theory of Quantum Mechanics and my physics project on computational simulations of electromigration in flip chips. I have experience with research in both fields. I am currently working as a tutor, but I just received an offer from the University of Oxford to begin a BPhil in Philosophy in October 2021, so I will soon start my studies there — I hope to continue to tutor on the side.
I have a wealth of experience with philosophy and philosophical writing and I excel at helping my students clarify and crystallize their thoughts. I help with both form and content, as well as structuring the work to avoid stress and other challenges. All the students I have tutored have achieved their desired grade — a few have also exceeded their own desires, such as this winter, when one of my students at St Andrews went from an expected 2:2 to a 1:1 in her actual essay.
I have been teaching for more three years and I absolutely love it. It’s so rewarding to see students realize their potential and unblock their barriers, whether knowledge or confidence based. It is also incredibly rewarding for me, as talking to so many different people from different backgrounds makes me see what I know all over again, from their point of view — this makes me both a better teacher and a better thinker.
Although MSci means Master in Science, I think of myself mostly as a philosopher with mathematical and physical acuity, rather than the other way around. My experience in the latter is theoretical and computational rather than experimental. I enjoy working with symbols (be it logic, grammar, or equations), which is why my mathematics and physics teaching is based on logic, proofs, and methods in place of calculation and memorization.
My philosophy thesis was on the Many Worlds interpretation of Quantum Mechanics. I currently have an offer from the University of Oxford to continue my studies with a BPhil in Philosophy.
I have organized study groups in philosophy of medicine and mental health and in epistemology; I have worked for King’s College London as a mentor for undergraduate physics and mathematics students. I have an extremely broad knowledge and can help you connect the things you don’t know to something that you already do. I can help with homework, problem sets, essay writing, research, or just pure thinking in philosophy, mathematics, or physics.
I also have experience doing mock interviews for Oxbridge applicants, writing and presenting lectures for A Level students, making educational films, and editing essays (both content and structure). My ratings are exclusively 5/5 with over 500 hours of tutoring.
Philosophical writing (university level), philosophy A Levels (AQA and OCR), formal logic (sentential and first-order), and mathematics (either A Levels or university level; pre-calculus, algebra, linear algebra, and calculus for physicists).
Very helpful and detailed! I feel more confident in my essay now
Amazing feedback from Henrik!! I was struggling with an assignment and with his help, felt much more confident
“I have an assignment and whilst I received feedback from a tutor, because he had a lot of experience in the topic that my assignment was going to be on, I did not find it as helpful and preferred yours. Will definitely be returning to you from now on!” (Second year student at the University of Coventry)
“You are a very talented teacher and you inspired me a lot with the subject. Our discussions during the A-level lectures were as enlightening and even more perhaps as my university tutorials” (Foreign national, adult A Level student, who now studies philosophy at the University of Glasgow, getting first class marks in his essays.)
“I would like to send a quick note on feedback re Henrik. My daughter handed in her essay last night and I want you to know that Henrik was super helpful in helping her to understand the topic and get this done. This was a very challenging topic for my daughter, and Henrik was very knowledgeable and very skilfully offered advice and help. This got us out of a very stressful situation, thank you so much.” (Second-year student with Durham University, who returned for her third-year essays as well.)
