« Perfect! I started my master’s in philosophy in September 2020, halfway through the year, I had not passed a single module. So, I contacted Serena around January 2020 and everything changed. Right away she helped me improve my essay planning technique, recommended me additional readings and helped me improve my writing technique. Serena went above and beyond and pushed me constantly to improve the quality of my work. Before, I started having lessons with Serena, I was predicted a fail for my masters but because of her I will be getting a merit/distinction, me on only regret is not starting lessons with her sooner. Also, Serena is knowledgeable and passionate about philosophy, whether it is metaphysics, political philosophy, epistemology or logic, she knows a lot about every topic. I am going to carry on with Serena all the way up until the end of my PhD. Thank you for everything! »

Philosophy post-graduate with experience teaching in schools looking to teach students across London

Methodology

Able to teach GCSE, A-Level, and undergraduate philosophy and ethics classes with a focus on surpassing curriculum basics, and adopting the writing tactics of the next level.

I take the knowledge my students have and challenge them in an enjoyable way to help them form the habits and understanding which makes great essays!

My lessons focus on two key aspects: understanding key concepts; and writing philosophy fluently. Combining these both will ensure essays and exams are confidently excelled.

Experience

Studied philosophy from A-level to Masters, receiving top grades. Currently saving up for my PhD via tutoring.

Vanessa

Perfect! Serena was the most amazing tutor. I was very nervous and stressed about redoing my dissertation but she made me feel very calm and confident about my work. She is a very talented and knowledgeable tutor. She always knows what she is doing and I could see a huge improvement in my work and my thinking processes because of her. I learnt a lot from her sessions and I couldn’t recommend her enough.

Serena's response

Vanessa was an absolute pleasure to tutor. She committed to all lessons books and dedicated herself to the sessions. She was very honest about her need to improve and was eager to delve into the work needed to be done. I wish her all the best with her future endeavours.

V
Vera

Perfect! Serena is a great tutor. She is fully prepared and recommended a lot of relevant academic articles to look at. I highly recommend anyone who needs extra support on philosophy to approach her.

Serena's response

Vera was a highly engaged and dedicated tutee who I expect will have a very bright future in law one day. Highly recommend.

Perfect! Serena has been really helpful and her tutoring allowed me to understand and clarify concepts in detail as well as to improve my analytical and essay-writing skills

Serena's response

Riccardo was very organised with his time, letting me know in advance when he required lessons. He had very good philosophical insight and I do not doubt that he will be very successful in his degree.
