As the Graduate Development Scholar in Philosophy at St Anne's, I am responsible for teaching a range of philosophy papers to St Anne's students. These include, at least, first-year Logic and Moral Philosophy as part of the Introduction to Philosophy paper, Ethics, Practical Ethics, and Knowledge and Reality.
I have previously tutored:
Meta-Ethics at St. Catherine's College (a series of tutorials for a visiting student)
Philosophy of Cognitive Science at Worcester College (Philosophy Honours Finals paper)
Knowledge and Reality at University College (Philosophy Honours Finals paper)
Ethics at University College (Philosophy Honours Finals paper)
Moral Philosophy: Mill's Utilitarianism atOriel College (Part of Philosophy Prelims/Mods First Year paper Introduction to Philosophy)
Philosophy of Logic and Language at St. Anne's College (Philosophy Honours Finals paper)
In Trinity Term 2020, I supervised an undergraduate dissertation on epistemic injustice, transformative experience, self-knowledge, and personal identity.
In Hilary Term 2020, I gave a series of lectures entitled Key Topics in Recent Meta-Ethics in the Faculty of Philosophy. Details of my lecture series can be found here.
Other Teaching Experience
I have a range of other experience in teaching Philosophy. The following is some of my teaching experience:
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.
In 2018/19, I served as the Waynflete Academic in Philosophy at Magdalen College School, Oxford. There, I helped run both the Philosophy Reading Group (topics for which included meta-philosophy, applied ethics, and the metaphysics of morality) and the Philosophy Society, aided in university application preparation (including mock interviews for Oxbridge candidates, who have successfully secured places there), and generally provided specialist philosophy support to those students studying for the Philosophy A-Level at the school.
I have provided revision classes for the Ethics paper at Oxford for finalist philosophy students at Oriel and University Colleges, Oxford.
I have privately tutored Philosophy, Logic, and Critical Thinking at both undergraduate and A-Level.
I have provided (remunerated) 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).
Outreach Work and Talks
In 2019/20, I worked as an Academic Reviewer for the University of Oxford's innovative digital outreach platform Oxplore, where I reviewed some of the platform's philosophical content. I also created some content for the platform on the question of whether knowledge is dangerous.
In 2018/19, I worked as a Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Tutor for the University of Oxford's UNIQ program, and presented both an introduction to moral philosophy at a School Outreach Day at Oriel College, and an introduction to the work of W.D. Ross in normative ethics at Radley College.
In 2017/18, I gave two introductory-level talks and seminars on normative ethics as part of teaching on the Philosophy at Radley seminar series at Radley College. You can read some feedback received for my talk here. I also gave a Keynote talk at a sixth-form philosophy conference organised at St. Edward's School, Oxford, and an invited talk on my research at the Summer Institute at Oriel College.
I am extremely keen to present talks and/or seminars at schools about philosophy as a subject and studying philosophy (at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level) at university. If you would be interested in my giving such talk at your school, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
