About Me

I am a PhD candidate in Philosophy at Clare College, University of Cambridge, working in ethics and the philosophy of science. Before this, I completed a Master’s in Philosophy of Science (first class with Distinction) and an undergraduate degree in Philosophy (double first class), both at Cambridge. For my PhD I was awarded full funding under a joint UKRI AHRC scholarship and the Clare College Badger studentship – a funding award that included panel selection from the Department, the University of Cambridge and the UK government’s research council. I was also offered full PhD funding from the University of Oxford medical department, King’s College London law department (the only student to receive a scholarship offer from KCL that year) and UCL Philosophy. Prior to this I also received an offer of a two-year scholarship at Pembroke College, Oxford, which I declined. At Cambridge I have won 5 awards for finishing first in my year in the research component of my Master’s, as well as for finishing in top 10% and top 5% of my year each year of study.

I have been tutoring for 4+ years at all levels, including for Oxbridge admissions and essay competitions. As a tutor I can help students to perform at the best of their academic abilities, offering support and guidance tailored to each student’s needs. I have experience guiding students in Oxbridge and UK university applications, John Locke essay competition, first and second year undergraduate essays, A Level Philosophy and English Literature (AQA, Edexcel, OCR), GCSE Philosophy, Latin and English Literature (AQA, Edexcel, OCR).

My teaching style

My style as a tutor is patient and supportive: I prefer to help guide students towards the answers, rather than being dogmatic or forceful, and to tailor my approach to the needs of each individual student. I am also able to offer detailed and constructive feedback to enable students to perform to the absolute best of their academic abilities.

My past experience

I have been tutoring for just over 4 years, predominantly in Philosophy. I’ve taught at all levels of study: from KS2 all the way up to third-year university students. I have the most experience guiding students in Oxbridge admissions and long-form essays for competitions (such as the John Locke essay competition) and for submission to university degrees.

My Proudest Achievements

My proudest achievements as a tutor are helping 3 A-Level year students in making successful applications to Oxford and Cambridge, for Philosophy (2) and Philosophy and Computer Science (1). I have also helped two Philosophy A-Level students to achieve A/A* and helped two first-year undergraduate students at UCL and Cambridge to achieve either a 1st or a 2.1 in their final year examinations.
