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.

Thanks to him she secured grade A. Simon is an outstanding tutor.

I am a literary scholar of the Medieval and Renaissance periods. Recently I held a position on the History Faculty at the University of Cambridge (2018-2019) as a postdoctoral research associate for a project that explored how cultures remembered and forgot the European religious reformations of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. My interdisciplinary academic background and training means I am competent in teaching at the crossroads of a number of disciplines. I hold a BA in philosophy (2008-2012) from a private liberal arts college outside of Chicago, Illinois. In my junior year, I attended the University of Oxford and gained a first-class distinction in my philosophy of religion module. After graduation, I moved to England where I began a PhD in English Language & Literature at the University of York (2013-2016). The day after submitting my doctorate, I started a Master's in Greek and/or Latin Languages & Literature at Oriel College, Oxford (2016-2017). I was awarded the top distinction in my year and course in the Classics Faculty for my submitted written work and exams.

As an American and British citizen, I have academic and cultural experience on both sides of the Atlantic. I also spent half my teen years growing up in Sofia, Bulgaria, attending an exceptional school in Eastern Europe that offered the IB Diploma. I am enthusiastic about motivating all kinds of people of all ages to pursue knowledge, and remain firmly convinced that enjoying a curriculum is the best way to mature and flourish intellectually. ...
My name is Josephine and I am currently completing my Masters degree in History of Architecture at the UCL Faculty of the Built Environment (MA), The Bartlett; prior to which I studied History of Art at the University of Cambridge (BA): 2:1. During my undergraduate degree at Cambridge University I received a grant to spend six months in Mexico City researching Mexican architectural modernism and the development of the urban landscape, working towards an undergraduate thesis that I am currently extending at a postgraduate level. During this time I worked closely with the university of Mexico in their archives department.

I attended a comprehensive secondary school in north London, and achieved straight A* - A qualifications in both my GCSE and A Levels. For the latter I studied History of Art, English and History, and received full marks on both my final History and English A Level exams. My specialities lie in urban, social and aesthetic history, philosophy and socio-economic and socio-political critical theory. I am fluent in all humanities and social science subjects. I have ambitions of becoming an academic, and hope to impart this passion and enthusiasm onto the students I teach, despite any lack of confidence they may have.

I have extensive experience working with children, having worked as an au pair in Madrid, Spain between my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, and as a regular childminder for a family in central London. ...
I'm a Postgraduate Medical Student and Oxford University Graduate with a passion for adventure and learning from every opportunity that life offers!

I am a recent graduate of Durham University, where I completed a BA in English and Philosophy. Although I went to university in the UK, I grew up in New York, and completed all of my schooling in America. I attended one of the top boarding schools in the country, Groton School, on an academic scholarship. I took the SAT and AP exams, earning some of the highest scores in my class for both. I have been tutoring since the age of 15, as part of a tutoring program at Groton, for English and Philosophy students at Durham, and for the past few months here in London. Having attended both US and UK education systems, I understand and can work with both curriculums, especially with university entrance exams and processes. ...
I've been tutoring and working with children part time since I finished school in 2014, and have 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 understand, or felt they weren't good at, turning a daunting task into something enjoyable. I've worked with children who range from 3 to 23 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. ...

I was educated at Reigate Grammar School in Surrey and went on to read Philosophy and Theology at Oriel College, Oxford. At Oxford I was able to study a broad array of papers ranging from Metaphysics to Ecclesiastical History, and attained the top mark across the entirety of the Philosophy Faculty in the Aristotelian Ethics finals paper.
