I am a PhD student in Philosophy at the University of Cambridge with an MSci Physics and Philosophy (first class) from King’s College London. I have accumulated around 1000 hours of online and classroom teaching and tutoring experience in mathematics, physics, and philosophy at high school, undergraduate, and master's level.
I wrote my philosophy MSci dissertation on the Many Worlds Theory of Quantum Mechanics and my physics project on computational simulations of electromigration in flip chips. I am now writing a PhD thesis about the interaction between science and the self within the philosophy of psychiatry and medicine, borrowing from metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, meta-ethics, political theory, philosophy of action, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, feminist theory, law, and psychiatry. I supervise and teach at Cambridge and work part-time on the side with private tuition.
I have a wealth of experience with philosophy and philosophical writing and I excel at helping my students clarify and crystallise their thoughts. I help with both form and content, as well as structuring the work to avoid stress and other challenges. My experience interdisciplinary background and my experience with the Oxbridge model of supervision are the basis for a unique approach which is tailored differently to each student. As a specialist philosopher, I help train teachers for the Philosophy Foundation during their training courses and their placements.
I have accumulated around 1000 hours of tutoring experience since I started tutoring in 2017. At present, I spend most of my time helping university students with writing essays, solving problem sets, and grasping their subject matter. I also train and mentor philosophy teachers with The Philosophy Foundation and run seminars as a graduate teaching assistant at my university.
Here is a brief overview of my experience:
- 500+ hours (offline and online) tutoring and teaching in philosophy at undergraduate and postgraduate (master's) level.
- 200+ hours (online) tutoring in Philosophy A Level (AS and A2) and IB (Standard and Higher Level).
- 200+ hours (online) tutoring in Mathematics GCSE, A Level (AS and A2), and IB (Standard and Higher Level).
- 50+ hours (online) tutoring in Physics GCSE, A Level (AS and A2), and IB (Standard and Higher Level).
- 50+ hours (online) in mentoring and writing support (transition to undergraduate and postgraduate).
I am writing my PhD thesis at the intersection of a lot of disparate fields of philosophy, all of which are needed to grasp the problem I am working on, which is how psychiatric science interacts with our understanding of ourselves. These areas include metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, meta-ethics, philosophy of action, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, political theory, feminist theory, and philosophy of mind. I also teach aspects of Kant and Hegel.
Great feedback. Helped me understand parts that i was struggling with and explained what i can do to improve my essay.
Very helpful and detailed! I feel more confident in my essay now
“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.)
