Oliver - Job searching

Methodology

Visiting Fellow, Institute of Philosophy, School of Advanced Study. Lecturer since 2006 - NUIGalway.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Political science, political philosophy, bioethics, sociology, essay writing and exam skills. I also offer proofreading services.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

2002 - BA in Philosophy, Sociology and Political Science (Hons 2.1). National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway). 2008 - PhD in Political Theory titled: Equality of Whom? A Genetic Perspective on Equality (of Opportunity). NUI Galway. Winner of the Basil Chubb Prize (2009). Awarded in 2008, my doctoral thesis went on to win the 2009 PSAI Basil Chubb Prize in recognition for being the best PhD thesis (produced in an Irish university) in any field of politics. For further details, see the Political Studies Association of Ireland website. The thesis is currently being prepared for publication as a book titled Egalitarianism in the Age of Genetics (2013).

- How much do you charge?

The basic tutoring rate is £40 per session (which includes preparation), plus travel expenses for travel outside zones 1 and 2.

Essay writing support can take the form of both online support and/or face-to-face meetings. Please contact me for additional information on my academic writing support service, including academic writing exercises for both essay and exam and support for standard length essays to longer dissertations.

Prices can be reduced if a minimum number of tutoring hours (whether online support and/or face-to-face meetings) are booked in advance.

Please contact me for proofreading quotes. Full professional service offered, from short essays to master's and doctoral dissertations.

- Where do you teach?

I am based in WC1 and can travel to London locations within postcode areas: EC N NW SE SW W. Place of meeting is at sole discretion of student – whether in their home, in a quiet cafe, booked room (by student) in student's college campus or any other suitable location.

- When are you available?

I can tutor all days of the week, most evenings, except Sundays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All college and university levels – both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. May also suit some A-level students. Interest in teaching all ages from 17-18+, with particular emphasis on adult learners and those returning to education.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

BA, MA, PG Dip, MPhil, PhD (proofreading is essential for the latter degrees).

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can offer all the above by email correspondence.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Having attended Film College and worked as a camera operator and editor in the nineties for various commercial video production companies, I returned to full time education as a mature student to pursue writing and to have an excuse just to read. Thanks to some very influential tutors and lecturers, my career and life changed dramatically and I have since left my camera behind for the endlessly fascinating world of political philosophy. In short, education can be profoundly life-changing and it should be the mission of every tutor and lecturer worth their salt to aspire to make this possible for their students.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Before moving to London, I lectured with the School of Political Science and Sociology in the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway), where I taught since 2003 as teaching assistant and since 2006 as lecturer. I have taught on a diverse range of topics across disciplinary boundaries, including the history of political theory, contemporary political theories of social justice, bioethics, political philosophy, sociology and political science. I have also extensive experience as an examiner – both setting and correcting exams, essays and other written assignments. I have convened numerous essay writing and exam preparation workshops and have taught at all levels/years at university level, including one-to-one tutoring. I am a referee for academic journals which includes proofreading manuscripts to ensure suitability for publication.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No.

- Where and with whom did you train?

National University of Ireland, Galway (1999-2008)

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

The Association for Legal and Social Philosophy (ALSP) Society for Applied Philosophy Political Studies Association (PSA) The Political Studies Association of Ireland (PSAI) International Political Science Association's Research Committee 12 (Biology and Politics) & Committee 36 (Political Power)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am teaching adult learners of all ages and all educational backgrounds – including those with postgraduate qualifications in other fields and those without formal educational qualifications.
