My Approach to Private Tuition

Philosophy involves thinking very carefully about hard questions and then expressing your take on them, clearly and persuasively. My aim is to equip students with the skills that allow them to do this—whatever topic they might be studying. Every student is different, but in each case my number one goal is to help students take pleasure in thinking for themselves about even the most difficult issues. To do this, I help students to read other authors with care, and to present those authors’ views accurately; I focus on students’ abilities to understand the questions they’re being asked, and the various dimensions involved in answering them; and I help students to be clear about what their own views are, along with developing their skills for stating and arguing for those views concisely and forcefully.

Fun fact

This fell well-outside my remit as a philosopher, but I once fed a leopard!
