About me

Professional teacher. Excellent credentials. Proven results. Fun too!

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.

About my sessions

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.

In short, work with me if you want someone:

- Professional

- Reliable

- Experienced

- Results driven

- Passionate

- Knowledgeable

We will work on understanding, essay writing, and exam technique. I will also help you to think in a more critical, rigorous manner. I offer a high-quality service that will maximise your chances of success and bring you the highest intellectual return. My excellent reviews attest to this.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you soon!

‘Pearls and Personal Identity'.

Questions Daniel has answered

How can I improve my philosophical essay writing?

One thing to remember when writing philosophical essays is that it is very important to be as clear as possible. Let's face it, philosophy is difficult, full of categorical imperatives and hard problems of consciousness. To compensate, make your language as clear as possible. If you can describe a complicated idea or concept with simple language, then whoever is marking your essay will be able to see that you GET it. Of course, sometimes technical words are called for, like a posteriori, a priori, ceteris paribus, syllogism, tautology, non sequitur, etc. But use these with care and only when appropriate. Employing selected philosophical terms well will impress the examiner, using them incorrectly will make them sigh. In general though, keep to Orwell's maxims and make your essays clear and crisp.
