About me

I am a philosophy student at Cambridge. I became interested in the subject through literature and it has become the best part of my life ever since. In the future, I hope to work in academia, and until then I like to help my students to encounter what I find so beautiful about it. With Plato, I share the conviction that understanding and appreciation of its value are inextricably linked.

I am a philosophy student at Cambridge. I became interested in the subject through literature and it has become the best part of my life ever since. In the future, I hope to work in academia, and until then I like to help my students to encounter what I find so beautiful about it. With Plato, I share the conviction that understanding and appreciation of its value are inextricably linked.


I also teach French and Spanish. Spanish is my mother tongue and French is one of the four other languages that I have learnt! I will draw on my experience of language learning to ensure that lessons are as engaging and useful as possible. A good grasp of language structure is essential, so I will focus on grammar as well as on reading, writing and listening skills. These should all be aided by the first, and supplemented by a strong exam technique.

About my sessions

The questions that philosophy deals with are extremely challenging - but writing a good philosophy essay is not. As well as a clear but detailed overview of the key arguments in philosophy, I focus on reading and writing skills that are essential to do well in exams across all boards. I like to do a session or two on exam content, depending on my students' needs, and then do one on exam technique where we apply a range of possible essay structures to the content.

The questions that philosophy deals with are extremely challenging - but writing a good philosophy essay is not.

I like to do a session or two on exam content, depending on my students' needs, and then do one on exam technique where we apply a range of possible essay structures to the content.


I have also helped students with their coursework and presentations. I run these sessions much in the fashion of my Cambridge supervisions; we discuss key notions and content, and I recommend some readings and ideas that are worth exploring. I then review the work and make suggestions for improvement until it is ready to hand in.


With regards to my language lessons, I believe that the most important thing is to provide some speaking practice, and I take the opportunity to correct and improve the most common mistakes made by English speakers, but in pronunciation and in grammar. My knowledge of the latter is very thorough; I try to provide systematic explanations that my students will remember. I also like to go over some past exams for the relevant board, and how to improve technique in general.
