About Me

I came to RS/Ethics through being a keen philosopher. I lived for 4 years in Stockholm, Sweden whilst writing my PhD, where I argued that imagination can be a source of knowledge. I still stand by that! Perception can only tell us so much, we need to think through different scenarios to learn about what is possible - when we imagine realistically!

During my PhD I got addicted to travel, ended up meeting my partner in America and so I spend lots of time, when I can, on the beaches in Florida!

I also have gotten myself pretty good at vegan baking through multiple attempts...

Hello just wanted to say thank you so much for your help in philosophy for me in the last 6 months, I feel so confident for my exams and you’re a great tutor! [Year 13 AQA Philosophy A Level student, 2024]

"An excellent tutor who is great at explaining and providing feedback - would not have been able to get the grade I needed without her :)" 5/5 - (Year 13 student, achieved a B in AQA A Level Philosophy, 2023)

Thank you so much for being such a great teacher! I’ve enjoyed philosophy the most out of all my subjects and am so happy I chose it. You’ve been so kind and understanding throughout the year and whenever I was stressed or overwhelmed, you were always so sympathetic and never put too much pressure on me. It has helped me so much through the worse moments this year. I have loved all of our debates and discussions and will greatly miss our lessons next year.

I just wanted to say that it is absolutely devastating that you will not be staying to teach us next year. You have truly made learning about epistemology enjoyable and it has now even become one of my favourite subjects. Initially, it was definitely one of the subjects I struggled to understand, however, you have always been willing to provide help and useful guidance, leading it to become one of my strongest subjects. Moreover, I would also like to deeply thank you for assisting me with the essay competition, 25 markers, and just being such a fun teacher.
