« Perfect! Sébastien fut mon professeur particulier de philosophe pendant 5 heures. Durant ces 5 heures j'ai appris plus de choses concernant la méthodologie d'une dissertation ou d'une étude de texte qu'avec 6 mois de cours avec mon professeur de Lycée (je fais 8 heures de philosophie par semaine au Lycée). Je ne regrette absolument pas d'avoir fait appel à Sébastien, mes notes variaient autour de 7-10 avant ses cours, pour finalement avoir décroché un 17 grâce à ses conseils avisés. En plus d'être un très bon professeur, Sébastien est une personne très gentille, serviable et aimable. Je recommande ses services sans aucune hésitation. Merci beaucoup Sébastien »

Doctor of Philosophy - 10 years of experience in higher education - individual courses in philosophy, methodology or logic

Methodology

Doctor of Philosophy, I taught at the university (Bachelor, Master) from 2007 to 2017. My private lessons are for high school students (preparation for the bac, methodology of the discipline), students (preparation for competitions and examinations), or adults wishing to discover philosophy (and the grandiose notions of world, spirit, self, etc.) it mobilizes. The courses are tailored to the student's personality and needs. In some cases, it will be useful to work on the methodology, or perhaps, in other cases, to insist on understanding, or to explore the techniques of argumentation and writing, reading and analysis of texts, etc. I will use focusing techniques if necessary.

Background

As a teacher at the university, I had in particular the objective of training the future teachers of philosophy of secondary school (that is to say the teachers destined to be in post in the lycées); I am well aware of the expectations of examiners and evaluators for the various competitions and the effective strategies for their preparation. I have had to deal with hundreds of students over the years, which allowed me to develop techniques to diagnose difficulties, and to put in place rapid strategies to remedy the difficulties in question.

Perfect! Sébastien fut mon professeur particulier de philosophe pendant 5 heures. Durant ces 5 heures j'ai appris plus de choses concernant la méthodologie d'une dissertation ou d'une étude de texte qu'avec 6 mois de cours avec mon professeur de Lycée (je fais 8 heures de philosophie par semaine au Lycée).

Je recommande ses services sans aucune hésitation.

J'eus la chance de travailler aux côtés de Sébastien à l'Université.

Ses qualités pédagogiques et didactiques ont toujours fait fond sur une solide culture philosophique et sur un excellent état d'esprit, toujours prompt à reprendre l'explication d'un raisonnement le cas échéant. Mis au service de son enseignement, sa connaissance de l'histoire de la philosophie, sa parfaite maîtrise de l'anglais et sa spécialisation en logique lui ont permis d'élucider d'importantes notions philosophiques, de prospecter de nombreuses questions et, enfin, d'être au fait des discussions les plus contemporaines.

Sébastien est donc un professeur digne de confiance et c'est la raison pour laquelle je recommande vivement son enseignement.

J'ai eu la chance d'avoir Sébastien Motta comme professeur durant mes années de licence, en philosophie à l'université de Nantes. La clarté de son propos, l'habitude qu'il avait d'utiliser des exemples concrets pour expliquer des idées complexes m'ont permis d'avancer sereinement dans ces études. Par ailleurs, sa grande capacité d'écoute et sa disponibilité ont été, pour moi, une véritable source d'apaisement. Je recommande très vivement Sébastien Motta pour quiconque souhaite :
- acquérir des connaissances avancées en termes de philosophie, de logique, d'histoire (générale, des sciences, etc...) ou d'informatique.
- rattraper un retard plus ou moins grand dans ces domaines, quel que soit le niveau initial de l'élève et celui attendu.

J'ai eu l'occasion d'avoir Sébastien comme professeur durant ma licence de philosophie à Nantes. Même pour les sujets considérés comme complexes par les étudiants, Sébastien a toujours eu à cœur de les rendre accessibles et s'est toujours montré d'une grande disponibilité.
