Philosophy Masters graduate offering lessons on the love of wisdom out of Hastings, UK

Methodology

I teach undergraduates based on a student's needs. This could be a broad conversation about how to approach a topic or essay question, help with structuring and research methods, or reviewing knowledge. It depends entirely on what is required from the course.

Background

I have been helping students with essay writing, structure, research and grammar for 5 years. Often covering topics such as aesthetics, philosophy of perception, epistemology, Wittgenstein and more. I have helped dozens of students complete essay and dissertations, all of which have gone on to complete degrees.
