I have a BA in philosophy with first-class honours from the University of York, and an MA from the University of Birmingham. A number of my papers have been published, and I was previously an editor of a philosophical journal.
I have been teaching for over four years. I am reliable, dedicated and professional. I have an exceptional history of helping students achieve success.
I am a professionally trained, passionate philosopher. I believe in helping students to achieve highly whilst also imparting some of what makes philosophy a wonderful subject. Despite what some people think, you absolutely can maximise both simultaneously. Learning should be fun and rewarding, but still results driven.
I have excellent communicative and interpersonal skills. Philosophy is hard, we will look at things together that some of the greatest minds of the last two and a half thousand years have struggled to grapple with, so although I can never make it easy, I can certainly make it easier. I want to help you appreciate the satisfaction of understanding and working with something that was originally very challenging.
Daniel's last completed Philosophy job with Elizabeth: Over 2 hrs/week - I am a running a non profit organisation that works in the field of values-based leadership. I am interested in developing my thinking and conversational skills in applying philosophy into the context of contemporary leadership patterns and entrepreneurial models in order to promote common good, and linking self purpose with social purpose. I would like to explore some of the most influential philosophical ideas in history, politics and humanity. Desired outcome to have rich conversations that will lead into new ideas-generation but also deeper understanding and good eloquence on the subjects.
I have taught a broad range of subjects in the UK and internationally periodically over the last 20 years.
I thoroughly prepare each lesson to meet the student's specific needs. I have taught A*- and E-grade students and, whatever the student's academic history, I bring clarity and order to complicated concepts, enabling them to acquire the confidence and skills they need to succeed.
I am extremely adaptable, and have taught mathematics, economics, politics, philosophy, business studies, history, close reading, literary analysis, and exam/essay technique, as well as devising and teaching a beginners’ business Russian course. I have significant TEFL experience, including at the Oxford English Centre.

I also hold pastoral and academic support roles that include being the Director of Studies for first year students as well as the convener of the Politics Study Skills Seminar and the Politics Dissertation Seminar.

Steve's last review in Philosophy from Niamh: Pre-U Philosophy and Theology. Brilliant - thanks again!
I have experience teaching undergraduate courses in Philosophy and Theology at the University of Oxford and have also been involved with interviewing candidates applying to study Theology and Religion at Oxford.
The focus of my tutorials is to enable students to develop highly effective reasoning and innovative solutions to philosophical questions, that are grounded in a clear understanding of fundamental philosophical and theological concepts. By working with me students will grow in confidence in their ability to tackle new problems and to read the primary literature.

Enric's last completed Philosophy job with joanna : 1-2 hrs/week - an A
I have been teaching and tutoring for five years now and have acquired a wide range of teaching experiences and skills. I began when I was still at school by tutoring a GCSE history student whilst I was doing my A-Levels. I also volunteered at an after-school homework club. I would tutor the children on an individual basis, helping them with their homework and keeping track of their progress. I also began to take up classroom teaching jobs, going to Kenya in partnership with the charity Hand-in-Hand to teach English, History and Politics to 14-17 year old students at Mogonjet School.
At university I continued to pursue teaching opportunities teaching at the Keio Summer School for Japanese university students each summer of my undergraduate degree, in which I taught history, debating and drama. I have also continued to pursue teaching opportunities abroad, completing the six week i-Learner internship in Hong Kong in the summer of 2018, in which I taught 12 to 18 year old’s a wide range of topics. In the summer of 2019 I did the Educamp internship in Beijing. I taught at three ten-day camps at Camford Royal School, teaching history, creative writing and sports. I also helped to tutor my Camford home room students for the "My Dream" speech competition in which students competed for a multi-thousand pound scholarship to the school by giving a speech in English about their life goals. The students that I tutored came first and second place.
I have also continued as an individual tutor. During the spring of 2019 I worked for CamExpress, an online tutoring company based in Shanghai. I taught online lessons and created online lectures for 16-18 year-old students who were considering applying to Oxbridge for university, as well as giving advice about the Oxford application process.

I am currently studying Philosophy and Italian at Oxford University, having completed the IB at King's College School in Wimbledon. My tutoring experience involves working for a tutoring company called Kumon. This included teaching maths and english language to young children and gave me good experience of tutoring and communicating effectively with students. I have also helped out my younger sibling and her friends with their homework and have been asked previously by teachers at school to aid other pupils, especially with UCAS advice.

I think I make a good tutor as I truly understand what it is like to come from an educational background that provides little help to be the best that you can be. I am a trained peer supporter so know how to listen to you effectively and actually understand the problems you face! I also do like english a lot, even if it can be a hard subject - I do really enjoy tasks such as close reading or proof reading!!
