Information about Karen

Experienced A-level Philosophy senior examiner and lecturer of Philosophy and Religious Studies for 17 years, as well as a Dutch language expert. I have degrees in Dutch Studies and Philosophy, including Masters degrees and a PhD in both areas and a PGCE. I have written articles and books on various themes within Philosophy and Religious Studies.

As a private tutor I can cater to the your needs by providing one-to-one support in understanding the material and planning essays, assignments and exam questions. My many years of experience in teaching and my level of knowledge means that you can be certain I know how I can help you improve on your grades. I cover all specifications (AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC/Eduqas and Cambridge Pre-U)

I also teach Dutch, from beginners to advanced level, including those preparing for the Dutch citizenship test.

My A-level sessions are designed to help my students gain confidence in producing model answers. I also provide some model answers of my own when possible. My students have always commented on how useful these model answers are. I am able to help with any exam specification.

For undergraduate and postgraduate students I help plan and structure your assignments, help with finding the right sources and explain, when necessary, the more challenging aspects of particular philosophies and theories. I can also help with revision for exams.

Availability: Online lessons only. Groups lessons also possible at a reduced rate per person.
For availability see schedule.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I am a lecturer with seventeen years of experience teaching A-level Philosophy and Religious Studies. I have also taught A-level Critical Thinking, General Studies, Dutch, Media Studies and GCSE English and Dutch for adult learners beginners to advanced. I have published resources, including A-level revision guides for Philosophy and Religious Studies. I am also an Senior Examiner of Philosophy for AQA and the IB and have tutored A-level, undergraduate and postgraduate students. My students have always achieved excellent results.

I have also published 10 A-level exam guides for A-level Philosophy and Religious Studies and have published a textbook on Hinduism.

I honestly cannot speak highly enough about Karen. She has greatly improved my results in Philosophy and without her I would be lost. She gives practical advice which helps you deal with exam questions in a quick and efficient manner. She is patient with you and takes the time to explain tricky concepts. I would 100000% recommend her to any philosophy student.

Karen is an excellent teacher who helped my daughter a great deal at `A` level. She made sure my daughter was organised and fully understood concepts. Her lessons were always interesting and my daughter looked forward to her lessons with her. I can`t recommend her highly enough!

Karen became attuned to the nature of my (quite specific) academic requirements in a very short space of time, resulting in an extremely productive and valuable study session. She is friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging - a pleasure to work with!
