Information about Jake

I am currently a postgraduate trainee in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, with five years of experience working in mental health and addiction settings. I have a PGDip (Postgraduate Diploma) in Philosophy of Mental Disorder from King`s College London, which I completed in 2017. in 2014 I graduated from Birkbeck, University of London with a BA First Class Honours in Philosophy. Upon graduating, I received the Philosophy Cyril Joad Prize for the highest examination results in my year. I am currently undertaking the MSc in Philosophy of Mental Disorder at King`s College London.

I consistently achieved first-class marks in philosophy since the beginning of my studies. I am confident I can pass on the skills to other students which enabled me to do this. I am happy to teach philosophy at A-level and undergraduate level. My aim is to offer support in the following areas:

- Essay writing and planning
- Effective note-taking, summarising and dissecting of philosophical arguments
- Introductory formal logic
- Understanding the significance of philosophy texts and essay questions
- Encouraging independent and creative thought whilst remaining within the parameters of the topic area/essay question

My areas of particular competence are:
- Ethics (normative, practical and meta-ethics)
- Metaphysics
- Kant
- Philosophy of Mind
- Epistemology
- Early Modern Philosophy - Descartes, Hume, Berkeley and Spinoza
- Propositional and Quantificational Logic
- Modality

Availability: Flexible

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I have tutored at level 3 and undergraduate level in philosophy of mind, epistemology and essay writing techniques. I have also helped BA Philosophy students to understand various philosophical concepts including modality and counterfactual analyses of causation. Moreover, I have reviewed students` essays and corresponding plans and offered appropriate criticism.
