My teaching will be oriented around the individual student's needs, hence I will first ask what my tutee is hoping to achieve and design a class structure based on their goals. I am hoping to (1) tutor English to non-native speakers (2) use my professional knowledge to help young people (e.g. A-level students, first-year undergraduates) to achieve their full academic potential in psychology, philosophy and relevant fields. I am very open-minded and outgoing as a person: in addition to my professional skills I also participate in arts and culture (emusic, digital design) and volunteering work with young people and the vulnerable communities.
I am a university student at UCL, studying Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics; and part-time private tutor. I have given Maths lessons to international students and English lessons to second-language learners - to both primary school children and secondary school children aged 12-15 (paid work experience). At A-level I studied Philosophy & Theology, Mathematics/Further Maths, and Chemistry and gained A*-A grades in all subjects. I am also professionally interning at university laboratories and participating in funded research programmes in both UK and US (Carnegie Mellon University, Stanford).

My first-year performance was awarded a first-class distinction. I am currently in the second year of undergraduate study, and is expecting to obtain a Bachelor's degree in 2021.
Aligned with my research interests, I independently researched and produced two pieces of coursework in the first year of undergraduate study.
Essay. Titled Visual Perception is not an Illusion Created by the Brain (awarded 85%; A+)
In this essay I drew empirical evidence from lesion studies, neuroimaging data and experimental paradigms, while positioning them within the philosophical conceptual debate between idealism and physical reductionism, and argued in favour of a Bayesian inference model of visual perception that requires no innate dispositions.
Coursework. Syntactic Rules and Ambiguities in Unfamiliar Language (awarded 85%; A+)
In this coursework I applied Chomskyan Generative Grammar (PS rules, transformations) to the unfamiliar German language, modelling on my analysis of the English Grammar. I built the empirical analysis on the conceptual basis of Popperian falsification principle and Chomskyan Universal Grammar, and argued from these principles throughout.
