My Approach to Private Tuition
Studying philosophy is rarely vocational so the focus of my tutoring is usually either on (i) providing advice and guidance for students already studying the subject, or (ii) teaching non-philosophers how to use the critical thinking tools essential to the rigorous study of philosophical argumentation. My specific pedagogical methodology is largely prescribed by the needs of the specific pupil, however, I always strive to enthuse students about the material in question and to be as clear and un-pretentious as possible. I push students fairly hard, but I also strive to ensure that tuitions are fun and interesting which, given the subject I teach, isn’t particularly hard!
