As a tutor I can make a real difference in the way you understand philosophy and help you deal with the most demanding essay writing and exam preparation.

Also, I wish to facilitate the acquisition of life-long transferable critical skills through the systematic and in-depth exploration of philosophical arguments.
My teaching style is direct and interactive.

I put emphasis on the understanding and the addressing of the major philosophical questions and I challenge my students into realizing the practicality of philosophical problem-solving.
