My name is Oli. I am a Philosophy graduate from the University of Warwick, where I received a First Class Bachelor's Degree. I am now doing postgraduate study at the University of Oxford in Philosophy.


I have a great love of literature, and a very thorough understanding of the grammatical and historical underpinnings of the English language. My philosophical interests are broadly ethical, political, and metaphysical philosophy. My knowledge base is wide in all three areas, and I am also well versed in a host of other areas from the history of philosophy. I’m a friendly person with plenty of tutoring experience, both formally and informally, with private clients and through schools. I also regularly tutor first- and second-year philosophy students at my university. I foster a friendly working relationship and environment, and I aim to promote interest as well as understanding in the fields I tutor in.

About my sessions

The best way for you to better your understanding of a topic is for you to guide me on what you are struggling with. My aim then is to give you a few new perspectives and methods in order to help you gain a rounded understanding of the things you are finding difficult. This is an approach I was taught during work experience as a teaching assistant and running theatre workshops. The goal is for you to find a way you are comfortable with approaching the difficulty – this makes it much easier to...

The goal is for you to find a way you are comfortable with approaching the difficulty – this makes it much easier to overcome.

I’m happy to give advice in essay writing and cutting, and similar help for personal statements. Writing clearly and concisely is very much my area of expertise as a philosophy student! However, I am also very happy to look at past papers and mark schemes with you in order to address more specific difficulties, and I am experienced in dealing with A Level and GCSE courses both as a student and as a tutor.

The lesson went as planned. I received very detailed feedback of what I need to work on. Oli seemed very helpful in making corrections and pushing my response up into the top band of marks.

I really enjoyed my session with Oliver and got a huge amount out of it. He had clearly done a lot of preparation, and asked for feedback as we continued to make sure we were on the right track and answering the specific areas I was hoping to cover. He not only has a breadth of knowledge to contextualise the topic we were working on, but also a depth of knowledge to make sure learning can happen in a meaningful way. Thank you for a lovely session Oliver!
