About me

I love studying Philosophy and Psychology because together the subjects target the fundamental questions of what it is to be human. These subjects have taught me to think critically and make a sophisticated argument, which are extremely valuable skills for life, so I am so excited to guide and support young people in the same development.

I love studying Philosophy and Psychology because together the subjects target the fundamental questions of what it is to be human. These subjects have taught me to think critically and make a sophisticated argument, which are extremely valuable skills for life, so I am so excited to guide and support young people in the same development. I strive to make my lessons low pressure and friendly so we can constructively solve areas of difficulty, because I feel being confident in your ability is vital for performing well in any subject when it comes to revision and exam technique. This is something I have learned from my own experience in school, where I found my interests lay in many different areas, so I studied the A Levels of English, Philosophy and Biology. The variety of subject areas was challenging at first, but has enriched my understanding of what is required by each kind of subject, whether Arts, Humanities or Sciences. For this reason I am keen to help any student, whether they are approaching important exams or simply need some support with a new subject.

About my sessions

In my lessons I focus on a dialogue between me and the student, to encourage the student to ask lots of questions and identify gaps in their knowledge. I am flexible in how I structure lessons as I know some students prefer the challenge of new material, while some students prefer to consolidate material from school in a more casual lesson. This will be agreed before and I am willing do as much preparation as necessary. During my A Level exams, I found the best way to revise was by active rec...

In my lessons I focus on a dialogue between me and the student, to encourage the student to ask lots of questions and identify gaps in their knowledge. I am flexible in how I structure lessons as I know some students prefer the challenge of new material, while some students prefer to consolidate material from school in a more casual lesson. This will be agreed before and I am willing do as much preparation as necessary. During my A Level exams, I found the best way to revise was by active recall of material in various kinds of questions, so my creative and flexible approach to teaching will help the student apply their knowledge to a variety of situations, improving their exam skills. Depending on how close the student is to exams, the content of my lessons will be focused on going through practice questions together to give the student confidence.
