Personable Philosophy student at Edinburgh University teaches English literature in and around Edinburgh

Methodology

I will give lessons to students studying for GCSEs; AS-levels; A-levels; Highers; and Advanced Highers. I will initially contact you to see precisely what is required for the student, so that I can understand how I can best help.

If the task is text based analysis, I will try to facilitate the student creating their own opinions and arguments so that they can have a personal response to the material.

Background

I am a Philosophy undergraduate at the university of Edinburgh. I have a A-level in English Literature and still have an active interest in reading.

My philosophy degree provides me extra insight into the texts because in my degree I have studied the Philsophy of aesthetics and beauty.
