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.
