« Allie has been fantastic - it was obvious from our first lesson that she both loves the subject and is extremely sympathetic to problems people have learning it. I'm not really a maths person, but she was able to bring things into the discussion that I actually found interesting and helped me see maths as more than just memorizing steps. She knows the syllabus really well, and was very good at discerning which parts I needed the most help with and focusing on them. Overall a great experience. »

University of Oxford student teaching Philosophy and Ethics for A-level students and below

Methodology

As an Oxford student, I am used to working within the tutorial system and thus have a discussion-focused style of teaching. In lessons, students may be expected to discuss an essay they have written prior to it, or argue for a given position. Alternatively, if a student wants to gain greater knowledge in a particular area, I can explain concepts as well as their advantages and disadvantages before encouraging engagement.

Experience

I have been giving private lessons for over three years, teaching students at pre-GCSE, GCSE, and A-level. Apart from teaching, I also run a philosophy discussion group at Oxford, as well as attending seminars in various areas to keep up to date with the latest research.
