In Hilary Term 2018, I will be tutoring the Philosophy Prelim/Mods (1st Year) paper Moral Philosophy for Oriel College, Oxford, and the Philosophy Honours Finals paper Philosophy of Logic and Language for St. Anne's College, Oxford.
At Oxford, I am on the Philosophy Graduate Teaching Register – a list of graduate students prepared to teach philosophy undergraduates. I offer undergraduate teaching for the following finals papers: Ethics, Knowledge and Reality, Practical Ethics, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Cognitive Science, and Philosophy of Logic and Language. I also offer teaching to those undergraduates writing dissertations in the areas of my doctoral research of (Meta-)Metaphysics, Moral Philosophy/Ethics, and Meta-Normativity. I have volunteered through the University of Oxford Hub initiative Schools Plus as a Philosophy A-Level Tutor (once a week during Full Term) at a local school with a high number of disadvantaged pupils. The Schools Plus initiative, and I when volunteering for them, hope that we can play some role in tackling the educational disadvantage at the school-level in Oxford by working to raise the academic confidence, interest, and attainment of disadvantaged pupils.
Teacher Training at Oxford and Cambridge
I have received training to teach philosophy at Oxford through the Preparation for Teaching and Learning in Oxford Seminar at the Faculty of Philosophy, taught by Prof. Adrian Moore, in Michaelmas Term 2017. I have also received further teacher training in the form of the Teaching and Transferable Skills Course in the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge, taught by Dr. Paulina Sliwa, in Michaelmas Term 2016. These courses comprise the compulsory teacher training those who supervise Philosophy undergraduates at Oxford, and the Philosophy Tripos undergraduate students at Cambridge, must complete to supervise said students. The courses involved training in small group teaching, supporting students with special needs, and training in general supervision, assessment, and evaluation. I have also received additional teacher training from the University of Oxford Hub as a pre-requisite of providing volunteer philosophy teaching through their Schools Plus initiative, at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
I have a range of other experience in teaching Philosophy. The following is some of my teaching experience:
I have privately tutored Philosophy, Logic, and Critical Thinking at both undergraduate and A-Level.
I have provided paid essay tutorials for the Philosophy undergraduate module Human Nature at the University of Reading.
At the University of Reading, I founded and served as the Chair of the Philosophy Cross-Level Student-to-Student Study Advice Seminar ('Philosophy & Biscuits', held once per academic term, where the University of Reading Philosophy Society Essay Advice document, which I co-authored, is circulated).
I have hosted and led revision sessions for the AQA Philosophy A-Level Syllabus, for the modules Epistemology and Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind, and the Set Text Meditations on First Philosophy by René Descartes.
