Student offering school philosophy lessons in Edinburgh, with a specialism in Higher and National 5 curriculi

Methodology

I offer lessons to people working on Higher and National 5 Philosophy, or for people with a general interest. Given the subjectiveness of philosophy, I find that the only way to learn effectively is to debate and discuss the sqa texts. I will also provide comprehensive notes which are an excellent resource for revision.

Experience

I am a student at George Heriot's school with a passion for philosophy. At school, I have studied philosophy for three years, and in that time have won the school philosophy prize twice, and acheived grades of 95%+ in both Higher and National 5. While I found the SQA courses to be an excellent basis, I have loved reading around the course to focus on Ethics and the implications of this challenging and stimulating subject.
