Who am I?
Hi my name is Anna, I am an undergraduate at the University of Warwick studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
What is my approach?
My aim is to make sessions as productive and enjoyable as possible! I know how it feels to be weighed down with work, especially with UCAS applications looming. Which is why, I appreciate how much it means to have clarification about topics and to ensure that you are doing exactly what the question asks to pick up all those marks!
Having just done my A-Levels I am very familiar with the A-Level and GCSE examinations and exactly what it is you need to do to get your aspired grade, without stressing over non examinable stuff. I would like to help you to develop your understanding of topics and essay writing skills, tailored specifically for A-Level and GCSE exams so that you meet the marking criteria and tick all the boxes you need without beating around the bush! This approach I feel will make my lessons with you as productive and helpful as possible for you!
What can I help with?
My tutorials can be catered specifically to what you want to learn, fitting in with your exam board. However, if you are unsure and wish to discuss certain topics in a more general way, I am more than happy to do this, meaning you won't have to plan in advance what you want to ask me. I am also happy to read your essays and work; providing constructive guidance on getting, as well as reproducing, good results.
I hope your studies are going well currently, and I look forward to meeting and helping you soon!

Assuming a general understanding of Bentham's act utilitarianism, the difference lies in that Mill takes a more qualitative (concerning quality and non quantifiable understanding) approach to pleasure rather than Bentham's method of measuring pleasure which is quantitative, and derived by using the hedonic calculus.
Mill thought that pleasures have different values and distingushed between higher and lower pleasures. Higher pleasures being those associated with the mind and intellectual pursuits. And Lower pleasures being those associated with the body such as satisfying the bodily need for food.
He felt that higher pleasures are more desireable than lower ones. He said, "It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied". REMEMBER: it is always good to use quotations to demonstrate your understanding.
In addition, he believed that rules whould be formulated first, based on the utilitarian princciples. The individual can then judge whether specific acts are acceptable.
In contrast, Bentham's act utilitarianism states that each action should be judged on it's ability to bring the greatest happiness for the greatest number.
Mill's development can be explaned as a system that includes the individuals conscience, instead of the harsh and mechanistic appraoch of Bentham's act utilitarianism.see more
