« She is my English tutor. My friend who had lessons with her introduced me with strong recommendation in last June. Since then, I find her a professional, brilliant and passionate tutor. She designs lessons based on in-depth understanding of English level and preference of a tutee. Materials which she selects cover a variety of areas from politics to science. I find myself improved a lot in English. I already introduced her to my colleagues looking for a tutor. I strongly recommend her for those who need a professional tutor. »

Philosophy Postgraduate tutoring up to Degree Level in Philosophy and related fields

Methodology

I am a Philosophy Postgraduate with an Undergraduate Degree from a top 10 UK University.
I ran the University Philosophy society, and provided a weekly Philosophy seminar aimed at non-Philosophy students, teaching basic topics in Philosophy. I have experience presenting my papers at conferences.

My research area covers Logic Language and Metaphysics, with a background in other major areas such as Ethics, Aesthetics, Phenomenology and Existentialism, Mind. I know several logics, including methods of axiomatic and natural deduction and meta proofs.
In addition to Philosophy, have an A* A level in Psychology and have studied Philosophy of Psychology.

As a teacher, I am especially able to clarify arguments, place them in the larger landscape and direct to further reading and resources.

Background

I have taught philosophy to non philosophy students on a casual voluntary basis for a year. This was a two-hour weekly session, with the first half presenting on and discussing a philosophical topic, and the second half open to free discussion of attendees philosophical questions.

I highly recommend "Madeleine", who has been my English teacher since 2018, as a Superprof.

Before meeting her, I had trouble keeping up with the university classes, due to the lack of my English skills. Although I tried to find a tutor, it was really hard to find a tutor who perfectly fit with my needs. At the time, my Japanese friend introduced me his cohort, Madeleine.

Before the class, she sent me some articles, which allowed me to keep interests, such as art, science, technology, architecture, etc. Although there were some topics which might be unfamiliar to her, she was well prepared and has always been driven to develop her skills as a teacher how to explain more easily to me.

I have been impressed by her efforts, so I already have introduced my friends (total 3), who would like to improve their skills like me, to her. All of them were very satisfied with her class and still they are keeping the class.

If you are looking for a tutor to improve yourself, I strongly recommend you to study with Madeleine and hope you will make the right decision.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a message for me.
