About me

I joined mytutorweb so that I can help others achieve the best grades they can.

Whether you have…

- problems with content

- need a revision session  

- have queries about exam questions

Or a combination of all of the above!

As well as being passionate about my subjects I also am passionate about education. In the future I hope to become a teacher so I can assure you that I am committed to making sure I provide informative and productive lessons without making you fall asleep!

I am happy to help those with dyslexia or other learning difficulties as I have successfully taught people with and without these difficulties.

I will make sure my lessons are directly relevant to the questions that you have and will take a relaxed, fun and informative approach. I understand that one-on-one video calls can be daunting and so I will do my best to ensure that you are comfortable. I will not assume what you know and will adapt my lessons to each individual’s level of understanding.

I can distinctly remember the challenges and frustrations that both GCSE and A-Levels can bring and hope that you give me the opportunity to help you to achieve the best grades you can.

Questions Kate has answered

explain Peter Singer's impartial spectator

Singer’s preference utilitarianism as laid out in his book practical ethics, asserts that when thinking ethically one should take the view of the ‘impartial observer’. By this he means that your own interests cannot take precedence over anyone else’s interest just because they belong to you. One has to take into account everyone who is effected when making an ethical decision, and ‘weigh up all these interests and adopt a course of action which has the best consequences on balance, for all affected’ (page 12). It does not matter who you are, everyone under this theory is equally weighted. When choosing whether to help one person or another, you cannot base your decision on whether one of the people is related to you in some way. Rather base the decision on what would maximise the overall preferences of all involved.
