My teaching method is variable depending on the most beneficial learning of the student. However some of my favourite teaching methods are creating simplified visual representations of each topic which help to engrain a basic understanding of the area of study, and as a result allows the student to clearly see the links of similarity and contrast between the different Philosophical theories. As a result of this, thesis structure and essay styles become tailored to gaining the greatest amount of marks. Similarly I think that thought experiments are also crucial in the understanding and applying of the theory, as it enables students to create a visual and relatable scenario to rely on when applying and contrasting the theory to others. Whether these thought experiments are those created by the Philosophers themselves or more relatable ones created for the student specifically. Both of these practices I personally found especially helpful when I was revising for my Philosophy exam previously, as they allowed me to form a solid basic understanding of each theory and to understand where each theory fits in to place with the others in order to form the links between them. I find this is essential when forming an argument and a successful thesis.
I’ve just completed my A-levels and Pre-U Philosophy and Theology, and I’m currently
taking a year out prior to University. Whilst my original plans for this year, to volunteer at an animal sanctuary in South Africa have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, I have decided to make the most of my year off still, and help to support and tutor students in Philosophy.
