About me

Hi! I am currently a Philosophy and Theology student at the University of Edinburgh. Studying this subject is providing me with a great set of transferable analytical skills, and introducing me to new and exciting content that is becoming increasingly relevant in our current political climate. My current main interests are medical ethics, feminist epistemology and the relationship between morality and the law.

About my sessions

I'd first like to discuss what exactly you are studying, the exam board you are using, and identify any particular areas you are struggling with - whether it be content related or exam/essay technique. 

During sessions, I would be happy to go over past exam questions, create essay plans, explain particular theories or content queries and answer any and all questions. An essential part of philosophy, in particular, is being concise and clear! Depending on the qualification level, foc...

I'd first like to discuss what exactly you are studying, the exam board you are using, and identify any particular areas you are struggling with - whether it be content related or exam/essay technique. 

During sessions, I would be happy to go over past exam questions, create essay plans, explain particular theories or content queries and answer any and all questions. An essential part of philosophy, in particular, is being concise and clear! Depending on the qualification level, focusing on how to present and challenge arguments is important. I would also love to encourage students to draw their own conclusions and opinions and examine why they have done so, as it is important to express what you think and why in all areas of philosophy. 

Whilst I would love to encourage unlimited freedom of ideas and writing styles, it is a sad reality that exam boards are largely limiting and tend to push you into a certain structure. I would hope to encourage genuine engagement and interest in this subject as there is so much on offer but also convey an understanding of what examiners are looking for. I understand that some people will just be needing to try and pass and others will be looking for a more in-depth understanding of things, I will, of course, try to cater to individual needs!
