Why Study Philosophy?

The study of Philosophy allows us to consider the most fundamental questions about human existence. The subject introduces students to some of the greatest thinkers throughout history, and encourages them to engage with questions that have occupied humankind for thousands of years.

Studying this discipline can be a highly rewarding intellectual experience, thanks to its encouragement of reflection and contemplation. Skills developed through the study of Philosophy, such as communication, critical reasoning and general problem-solving are highly transferrable.

Our Philosophy Tutors

Our tutors have all studied the subject at university; most in Oxford, Cambridge or one of the Ivy League Colleges. Many have done or are doing doctorates.

Our tutors can provide specific support across the various subdisciplines within philosophy, including epistemology (the theory of knowledge), metaphysics (the theory of being), logic (the theory of reason and of inference), value theory (including ethics, politics and aesthetics), and the history of philosophy.

Philosophy Exam Preparation

Our tutors are experienced in working with students at various stages in their study of Philosophy. The majority of our tutors teach their specialist languages to A Level / high school level. However we can also provide highly specialised tutors for topics at university level. Please contact us to discuss your particular needs.

From A Level modules to degree-level work, they will work with you on the topics required. In the lead up to examinations, tutors will also provide detailed feedback and support on argument formation, analytical writing and essay technique.

Often, students with an interest in Philosophy will not have had the opportunity to study it at school, but may wish to apply to study it at university. In these cases, our tutors can provide introductory support as well as more intensive preparation for applications, assessments and interview.

Having boarded and studied at the King's School Canterbury, I then went on to graduate with a first class BA and an MPhil from St John’s College Cambridge in July 2017. I am currently employed as a Philosophy and Theology teacher at Rugby school. Here I have undergone teacher training for the PGCE and also function as a full time tutor to ten GCSE level boys, as well as choral assistant and shooting coach. Having worked closely with the head of Oxbridge over the past year, I am in a very strong position to advise on applications to leading universities worldwide. Balancing work with a competitive rifle-shooting at a semi-professional level requires huge drive and efficiency. I bring this drive to each of the pupils that I tutor in the hope that I can help them to realise their own passions and potential. ...
I'm a Postgraduate Medical Student and Oxford University Graduate with a passion for adventure and learning from every opportunity that life offers! I’m a tutor with a broad academic background who has a particular interest in helping kids who lack academic motivation or generally could do with an extra role model. ...
I am an expert tutor and education consultant with a first-class English degree, a Masters from Cambridge and over ten years' experience in elite institutions in the UK and overseas.

My most recent teaching post was Head of English at The Latymer School, one of the highest performing state schools in the UK.

In my spare time, I am a contributor to magazines including The Spectator and Prospect Magazine, and am currently writing a television series on free schools at the NFTS. ...
I've been tutoring and working with children part time since I finished school in 2014, and have just graduated from Oxford University, where I studied English literature. Before that, I took IB at Wellington College, in which I scored 43 out of a possible 45 points. I've tutored in London, Oxford and Hong Kong, worked as a nanny, and set up and continue to run a school sponsorship program in Nepal, which provides disadvantaged children with the opportunity to be educated in Kathmandu. For me, one of the most rewarding aspects of tutoring is helping students gain confidence in something they thought they would never 'get', or just 'weren't good at', turning a daunting task into something enjoyable. I've worked with children who range from 3 to 16 years old, but have most experience with Common Entrance at 11+ and 13+. The breath of the IB course means that I'm able to teach a range of subjects to a high standard, and have great experience balancing academic work with other areas of life, as well as finding important overlaps between diverse subjects and interests. ...
