About the lesson

I prefer to teach one on one or in small groups, to suit my discussion based approach. My tutoring mimics the way the subject is taught at Cambridge, with sessions focusing on developing and discussing work set, as well as explaining any confusing concepts. Each course of lessons are designed just for you, based on your goals, and aim to be exciting and engaging - philosophy is an amazing subject, and I want to share my passion for it! I have two years of online tutoring experience, and have tutored a full range of students, from children to MA students, so can help with whatever you're looking for.

I'm happy to help with essay writing or interview technique, and have experience working with more formal requirements as well as just for interest. I offer a free consultation session of 30 minutes to make sure we've got a programme which suits you perfectly.

About Emily

I just graduated from studying philosophy at Cambridge university, with a first class degree. I've been published twice, and have worked in a research position at the Uehiro Centre at Oxford University, on applied ethics. I achieved A* at A-Level, and am passionate about my subject. At Cambridge I received one on one tutorial sessions from world-class academics, and I want to be able to make that kind of learning more accessible to more people. My tutoring experience ranges from children to MA students, with over two hundred hours of one on one tuition, so I'm well prepared for any kind of teaching.

  • 01

    When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?

    I've been interested in philosophy and politics since I was 14, when I first read 'The Republic' by Plato. Strangely, what cemented my interest was watching 'The Truman Show' soon after, and being blown away by the idea of general doubt! I decided to start tutoring when I started university, as a part-time job which would allow me to share philosophy with more people, in the way I wished I could have been taught. I loved it so much I never stopped!

  • 02

    Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).

    My favourite topics to cover with students are usually political philosophy ones, but I also love it when students surprise me by making me see topics I usually wouldn't spend too much time on this with fresh eyes!

  • 03

    id you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?

    My no-nonsense RPE teacher at secondary school is responsible for my interest in philosophy - she was harsh but fair, and I always try and capture her enthusiasm and skill in my own teaching.

  • 04

    What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?

    A good tutor has to be, first and foremost, patient. That means listening to your students as much as possible, to make sure they're learning to the best of their ability

  • 05

    Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school

    The first philosophy class I had in sixth form, we looked at Berkeley's idealism. I was so taken with it that I decided then and there to do philosophy at university - and bored all my friends by talking about it!

  • 06

    What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?

    When I started philosophy, I struggled with clarity in my essay writing, and it took me a while to gain that valuable skill of clear and direct communication. It's such a useful thing to be able to do, and I love transmitting that to others.

  • 07

    Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?

    I love feminist philosophy, and have an ambition to be published in the journal 'Hypatia' some day!

  • 08

    What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?

    My dedication! I'm proud of how creative and engaging my lessons are, and spend a lot of time planning them. It definitely pays off!!
