PhD, Principle Examiner, Qualified Teacher, inc Early Years. Expert in Philosophy and Critical Thinking.
I have recently been awarded my PhD in philosophy from the University of Manchester. I now teach Philosophy and Political Philosophy at the University. Before this I taught in primary schools, including Early Years, and have done outreach work bringing philosophy to secondary schools. As a Principle Examiner for a number of exam boards, I have extensive experience of setting and marking A level exam papers in Philosophy, Critical Thinking, Thinking Skills, and General Studies.
My speciality is tutoring all ages in Philosophy and Critical Thinking. No prior knowledge of the subjects at all are required to benefit from the skills in thinking and argument that they develop, and I can tailor activities and discussions for any pupil from aged 4 upwards. I am also qualified to provide group sessions in Philosophy, Thinking Skills, argument and debate for interested primary and secondary schools. Learning to think critically and analytically are skills that benefit all ages in all areas of their education.
Older pupils considering applications in any subject (including Medicine) to Universities that have admissions testing will need to master the skill of critical analytical thinking, which I will help them to do. I also offer tutoring to those studying for A and AS levels in Philosophy and Critical Thinking, and those reading it at degree level.
In tutoring younger pupils in Mathematics and English, or any other subject, I bring to bear the development of thinking skills also, as I do with tutoring those who need Early Years support. The skill of critical thinking is the key to accessing all education.
I am a qualified, but not practicing barrister, and can also offer tutoring in argument and advocacy to those interested in Law.
I offer a reduced rate of £35 for a 45 minute session. For younger pupils in particular, a 45 minute session can be more than enough time for the demands of philosophy!
I will consider travelling further if travel time and expenses can be taken into consideration.
The online tutoring I offer is via email - this would be suitable for those wanting help with essay structure and the like. The price for this is just £25 an hour.
Availability: I`m very flexible, with availability at weekends, afternoons and evenings during the week, and during school holidays.
My price reflects the fact that I travel to my tutees` homes, or their chosen location, rather than asking them to travel to me.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
