About me

I am studying Philosophy and Theology at the University of Oxford, because I want to have the greatest set of problem-solving skills to take through all my walks of life. If Philosophy makes a sharp, articulate and deep thinker; and Theology gives me scope to come at situations curiously and critically; then my degree is something I want to use help me live a good and wise life, efficiently and helpfully, with kind and balanced outlooks. 


For my students I will take a patient extra mile for each - for I believe that most of the problems a student has is not having a concept or topic taught to or explained to them in a way that suits the way their mind works. If it takes a couple of sessions to find our way to an efficient learning dynamic, rather that than several inefficient ones!

About my sessions

What I would like to do is set lessons based on small goals, in the moment that either the student presents to me what they would like to cover or premptively if a plan has been set by the student or parent x amount of weeks in advance. Small goals promote productivity in that they achievable and encouraging; it is also much easier to teach how to achieve a small goal than a big one. Eventually, the small goals will add up to larger achievements naturally. 

Using further a colour-based system, the interactive classroom will play a big part. I will ask of my students to, as we go along, stop and ask questions, underline in red things they don't understand, green what they do, add their own points in blue so that it becomes something we can build upon together, they can communicate what we need to address in such a way as we can come back to it at the end or what we definitely don't need to look at again. This can make lessons have a greater basis of communication, leading to efficiency.

Brilliant overall knowledge of the course and exam structure and an engaging teaching method that both teaches the course and builds overall knowledge of Philosophy as a subject. I am very grateful of the time and effort he has put in. Thank You Jack.
