About me

I'm a second Year Cambridge Student, originally from London, who likes to read, cook, travel, socialise, and volunteering. I am really interested in culture, gender, and ethnic discussions surrounding social activism - a bit of a 'Social Justice Warrior,' heavily involved in politics and social action.
I am a very liberal, approachable, and non-judgmental person. I love debating real-world issues and seeing things from different perspectives. I'll talk to anyone and am fairly outgoing.
I am an aspiring teacher and would like to teach abroad one day, please help me gain experience - I am always open to feedback and changing methods that may not work for others, you'll find a very flexible and open approach to tutoring with me.

Tutor Experience

I have experience working in schools and will soon be applying for a PGCE, I already have a good understanding and ability to work with students which I really want to develop. Anything I don't yet know I have real motivation to learn and will always give 100%

My approach begins by breaking down and explaining complex concepts/theories appropriate to any level and focusing on critical thinking - I both offer and encourage informed reflections on the strengths and weaknesses of ideas. Enabling you to gain a better understanding of the content in an unbiased context with room for mutual discussion and the capacity to further explore areas of specific interest.

Particular areas of interest:
Judaism - Jewish law, Judaism in modernity, Jewish practice, Zionism, Holocaust theology, gender (+more)
Buddhism - history, teachings and practice.
Questions in the philosophy of religion - the nature of God, arguments for the existence of God, the problem of evil, free will/determinism, freedom, love, and religion and science.
Philosophers of religion - Plato, Kierkegaard, Aquinas, Anselm, Descartes
Ethics - Kantian, Utilitarianism, Virtue theory, Hume, meta-ethics (realism and anti-realism).
Anthropology of religion - Fundamentalism, gender, new media and technology, colonialism and religion (+more)
World Christianities - the Comaroffs' thesis, Filipino Christianity, Liberation Theolog...
