Recent Oxford PPE Graduate, Now Studying Philosophy and Teaching Humanities and Social Sciences In London

Methodology

If, as will usually be the case, I have set work to be completed between tutorials, we will begin the lesson with verbal feedback on this work, and working through any mistakes that have been made. If there were any mistakes that were made often in the work, we will dedicate a part of the teaching time to going over that method. After this, I will begin teaching a new topic or skill by working through it myself, and explaining, while the student listens. After this, I will ask the student to repeat the explanation back to me, and then work through some problems with me. I like to model my tutorials on a serious discussion with the student, as I find that treating my students as academic peers is far more rewarding for both me and my students!



For Oxbridge applicants, I will occasionally set an essay with some reading for the student to complete between tutorials. I will then ask the student to explain their essay answer, and we will continue to discuss the topic at hand for the rest of the tutorial. If we are focusing more on the Admissions Test, I like to spend each section focusing on one or two styles of question, and working out a technique that works best for the student. I am always available to mark written work (I do not charge for this if we are having regular tutorials).

Experience

Hi, I'm Will. I am a recent graduate of PPE at The Queen's College, Oxford; I graduated with First Class Honours. I am now studying for a Masters in Philosophy at CRMEP. I intend on pursuing a career in academia, specialising in 20th century French (political) philosophy.

I have over two years of experience tutoring in a variety of subjects, with particular specialisms in helping with essay writing, reading academic texts, and taking students beyond what is possible within the formal education system. Most of all, I am happy to say that I have helped many students with their confidence in approaching academic tasks. If nothing else, I hope to share the love of academic study that I have with my students.

I have been tutoring for a fair few years now, and have completed over 500 hours of tutorials. I have a real passion for discussing academic questions, and I always enjoy engaging in discussion with my tutees. My aim is not just to aid my students’ grappling with a particular topic, but to improve their general approach to reading, writing, and thought in a more general sense. I hope to offer friendly, encouraging tuition that builds your confidence, and makes for informative yet enjoyable tutorials.
