I am currently a Master’s student and teaching assistant at the American University of Beirut, having graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2018 with a BA in Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies (First Class Honours). I have experience teaching undergraduates and marking their written work. In the first year of my Master's degree (2018-19) I worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the American University of Beirut. In my first semester, my work was primarily involved marking undergraduate essays for a course entitled Arab Political Thought & Ideology. In my second semester, I led two seminars and lectured another two classes for a Senior Seminar in Political and Social Theory. I also have experience tutoring GCSE and A-Level French, having followed two pupils for six months in 2013-14. I grew up in London, speaking both English and Italian and I have published translations of academic (mainly art historical and curatorial) texts from French into English. I also work almost daily with primary sources in written Arabic for my research, so I am available to give language classes in Italian, French and Arabic along with Spanish, a language I have also studied and gained fluency in. I can also help with issues relating to academic writing and presentation, as well as aiding secondary school pupils with exams in Philosophy, Religious Studies, Ancient History/Classical Civilisation and Sociology.

Approved Philosophy Teacher

At present in my early 50s, I began teaching, in a London tutorial college, straight after coming down from Oxford. A few years after that, I interrupted my teaching career to return to university to pursue doctoral research, but I continued to see a small number of private students throughout my time as a post-graduate student. Accordingly, I have somewhere in the region of thirty years’ experience of helping students to realise their potential and, quite often, to exceed their expectations of themselves. My original specialisms were English Language and Literature, and these remain subjects I enjoy teaching immensely, but I have equal experience by now in History of Art, Philosophy and Religious Studies, each of which I have taught to A level students and undergraduates. I also specialise in Pre-U English. The following is a quotation from the reference supplied by the school from which I resigned last year, after twenty years as Head of English and de facto Head of Humanities, in order to focus on private tuition: ‘Bill’s main virtues as a teacher […] are his infectious enthusiasm for his subjects, his immense knowledge and erudition, his intimate familiarity with past papers and assessment criteria, his commitment to his pupils, his willingness to make supererogatory efforts on their behalf, his provision of extensive and meticulous course notes, and his generosity with his time.’

A-Level Philosophy tuition

A-level is a student’s first opportunity to study Philosophy in an educational setting with the nearest GCSE equivalent being Religious Studies. While not all colleges or exam boards offer Philosophy A-level, those that do find the course incredibly popular as students look to use the opportunity to expand their minds and think in a more analytical and philosophical way. Philosophy A-level offers students the chance to interact with the world in an entirely new and exciting way, teaching them how to questions their assumptions, look beyond the surface, and start to delve into the very fabric of reality. From questions that are highly applicable to daily life, such as “is it right to eat animals?”, to intangible ideas about the nature of knowledge, students will be introduced to the core problems Philosophers through the ages have tried to overcome and have the unique opportunity to add their voice to these ongoing debates.

Although certainly one of the most rewarding subjects to study at A-level, Philosophy is also amongst the most challenging. Students are expected to think in new and abstract ways as well as developing the ability to spot holes in arguments and provide alternative theories. Students will need to exhibit excellent essay writing skills as well as being able to recall large amounts of information about a broad array of topics. While success at Philosophy A-level opens up countless doors academically and in terms of future careers, achieving a top grade is extremely difficult. Hiring a qualified A-level Philosophy tutor is the best way to ensure students can really get the most out of their course. From developing their student’s ability to understand and enjoy the riveting curriculum to ensuring they excel in those intense final exams, a private tutor can guide students through every step of the Philosophy A-level course and guarantee the best outcome.

A-Level Philosophy Course Breakdown

Only AQA deliver straight Philosophy at A-level, although other exam boards such as OCR and Edexcel do offer Religious Studies as an alternative. For students studying a Philosophy A-level the course is broken down into four core modules: Epistemology, Moral Philosophy, Metaphysics of Mind and Metaphysics of God.

Epistemology - What is knowledge?: Here students will learn about philosophical theories regarding knowledge, particularly how and whether we can “know” things, as well as the flaws and criticisms of these theories. Students will look at key hypothesise for true knowledge such as the tripart definition, reliabilism and Infalliabalism alongside their major critiques including the Gettiard problem and denying closure.

The nature of knowledge: Students will discuss and analyse different definitions of knowledge including their oppositions, for example, Analytic vs Synthetic and A Priori vs A Posteriori. Students will also study and compare the virtues of different philosophical schools of thought including Rationalism, Innate knowledge, Knowledge Empiricism, Concept Innatism, Concept Empiricism.

Theories of perception: In this element of the module, students will look at the Philosophical theories attempting to explain the relationship between reality and our perspective of it. Students will consider whether we can ever perceive what is real and whether there is a reality for us to perceive. Students will explore this philosophical quandary via the theoretical frameworks of Idealism, Direct realism and Indirect realism.
Moral Philosophy - Ethical theories: Where students look at some of the most prominent theories on ethics in terms of what is moral and how to be moral. Key theories studied will include Utilitarianism, Kantian ethics and Aristotle’s virtue theory.

Applied Ethics: Where students consider ethical dilemmas in real life, such as the consumption of animal products and stealing, and debate whether and in what circumstances they could be justified. Students are expected to refer to the ethical theories they have studied when tackling these ethical issues.

Metaethics: Where students will consider ethics and morality in terms of what morality actually is, rather than just how to be moral. Students will consider various arguments regarding the foundations, status and scope of moral values, words and properties. Key theories students will explore include emotivism, error theory, ethical naturalism and ethical non-naturalism, and prescriptivism.
Metaphysics of God - The divine attributes: whereby students will study and learn the characteristics attributed to the concept of a God such as Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omnibenevolence, Eternal/immortal, and being personal in relation to mankind. Students will also study common criticisms of the manifestation of a God with all of the divine attributes and debate whether or not it is possible for a God meeting those criteria to exist. Students will cover key challenges to the concept of God such as the Euthyphro dilemma, the incompatibility of free will and Omniscience, and the problem of the stone.

Does God Exist: Here students will look at some of the key arguments for and against the existence of God. Core arguments students will study include the Ontological argument, Teleological argument and Cosmological argument as well as addressing the problem of evil and free will. Students will consider the theories posited by key Philosophers including Descartes, Aquinas, John Mackie, Hume, William Paley and Kant with regards to whether is a God as well as whether and how we can prove his existence.

Religious Language: Students will contemplate the nature of religious language and statements what statements such as “God exists” mean. The two core ideas students will study are Cognitivism and Non-Cognitivism. Students will learn about each argument for the role, purpose and truth of religious language. Within cognitivism, students will look at the verification and falsification principles, as well as their inherent self-defeating problem. Within Non-Cognitivism, students will mostly study the work of Wittgenstein and his language games.
Metaphysics of Mind - What do we mean by “mind”?: Student’s will begin this module by addressing different responses to the question “What is the mind?”. Students will identify key features of mental states be introduced to the concept of “qualia” (phenomenal qualities) before addressing which mental states have qualia and which do not.

Dualism: In studying Dualism, students will look at the various arguments that postulate whether or not there is a division between the body and the mind. Students will look at the work of Descartes and Jackson in detail, as well as other key thinkers such as Plato, and consider the differences, strengths and weaknesses of different types of Dualism argument including Substance Dualism, Property Dualism and the Knowledge Argument.

Physicalism: As the opposing argument to Dualism, when studying Physicalism students will consider the argument that there is no division between the body and mind. Students will consider key arguments for Physicalism such as Functionalism, Behaviourism, Eliminative Materialism, and the Mind-brain type identity theory. Students will compare the merits and flaws of both Physicalism and Dualism and draw their own conclusions as to what they believe the mind really is.
Assessment - The Philosophy A-level is assessed via two separate written exams each worth 50% of the overall grade. The exams take place at the end of the second year of the A-level course. One paper will cover Epistemology and Moral Philosophy and the other paper will cover the metaphysics of God and Philosophy of the mind. There are ten questions on each paper and five per module. Students have three hours for each exam and must attempt to answer all of the questions in that time.

Benefits of studying Philosophy at A-Level

An A-level in Philosophy is one of the most versatile qualifications a student can obtain.

Skills - There is an almost endless list of skills students acquire during a Philosophy A-level. From top rate essay writing to presentation skills, undertaking independent research to logical thinking, proficiency in communication and debating to imagination and creativity, Philosophy provides a holistic education that produces highly skilled and educationally rounded students.

Philosophy also teaches students to understand the relationships between ideas, how one idea can imply or contradict another. It also develops a students creativity and imagination as it pushes them to come up with novel ideas and innovative solutions to problems. A-level Philosophy students are pushed to think outside the box, whilst also developing their ability to think logically, analytically and critically. The A-level course also helps students to establish strong communication skills, incorporating plenty of discussion and debate practice. This instils a student’s ability to argue logically and coherently as well as becoming adept at spotting flaws in arguments.

Studies have shown that students of Philosophy perform better in standardised tests in both verbal and writing skills than students of any other subject. Philosophy students also outperform their peers in maths with the exception of students who are specifically studying maths or physics.
University - Success at Philosophy A-level opens up doors to a number of University courses at top Universities. The prestige of a Philosophy A-level, along with the skills and knowledge attained during its study, mean it is a valuable asset for students looking to study a whole range of subjects at University.

Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson. If you are late for the lesson, tutors will charge for the full amount that has been agreed and confirmed. We operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, which means that if you cancel the lesson with 48 hours you will be charged the full amount.

If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

I can also help with issues relating to academic writing and presentation, as well as aiding secondary school pupils with exams in Philosophy, Religious Studies, Ancient History/Classical Civilisation and Sociology.

    At present in my early 50s, I began teaching, in a London tutorial college, straight after coming down from Oxford. A few years after that, I interrupted my teaching career to return to university to pursue doctoral research, but I continued to see a small number of private students throughout my time as a post-graduate student. Accordingly, I have somewhere in the region of thirty years’ experience of helping students to realise their potential and, quite often, to exceed their expectations of themselves. My original specialisms were English Language and Literature, and these remain subjects I enjoy teaching immensely, but I have equal experience by now in History of Art, Philosophy and Religious Studies, each of which I have taught to A level students and undergraduates. I also specialise in Pre-U English. The following is a quotation from the reference supplied by the school from which I resigned last year, after twenty years as Head of English and de facto Head of Humanities, in order to focus on private tuition: ‘Bill’s main virtues as a teacher […] are his infectious enthusiasm for his subjects, his immense knowledge and erudition, his intimate familiarity with past papers and assessment criteria, his commitment to his pupils, his willingness to make supererogatory efforts on their behalf, his provision of extensive and meticulous course notes, and his generosity with his time.’

    A-Level Philosophy tuition

    A-level is a student’s first opportunity to study Philosophy in an educational setting with the nearest GCSE equivalent being Religious Studies. While not all colleges or exam boards offer Philosophy A-level, those that do find the course incredibly popular as students look to use the opportunity to expand their minds and think in a more analytical and philosophical way. Philosophy A-level offers students the chance to interact with the world in an entirely new and exciting way, teaching them how to questions their assumptions, look beyond the surface, and start to delve into the very fabric of reality. From questions that are highly applicable to daily life, such as “is it right to eat animals?”, to intangible ideas about the nature of knowledge, students will be introduced to the core problems Philosophers through the ages have tried to overcome and have the unique opportunity to add their voice to these ongoing debates.

    Although certainly one of the most rewarding subjects to study at A-level, Philosophy is also amongst the most challenging. Students are expected to think in new and abstract ways as well as developing the ability to spot holes in arguments and provide alternative theories. Students will need to exhibit excellent essay writing skills as well as being able to recall large amounts of information about a broad array of topics. While success at Philosophy A-level opens up countless doors academically and in terms of future careers, achieving a top grade is extremely difficult. Hiring a qualified A-level Philosophy tutor is the best way to ensure students can really get the most out of their course. From developing their student’s ability to understand and enjoy the riveting curriculum to ensuring they excel in those intense final exams, a private tutor can guide students through every step of the Philosophy A-level course and guarantee the best outcome.

    A-Level Philosophy Course Breakdown

    Only AQA deliver straight Philosophy at A-level, although other exam boards such as OCR and Edexcel do offer Religious Studies as an alternative. For students studying a Philosophy A-level the course is broken down into four core modules: Epistemology, Moral Philosophy, Metaphysics of Mind and Metaphysics of God.

    Epistemology - What is knowledge?: Here students will learn about philosophical theories regarding knowledge, particularly how and whether we can “know” things, as well as the flaws and criticisms of these theories. Students will look at key hypothesise for true knowledge such as the tripart definition, reliabilism and Infalliabalism alongside their major critiques including the Gettiard problem and denying closure.

    The nature of knowledge: Students will discuss and analyse different definitions of knowledge including their oppositions, for example, Analytic vs Synthetic and A Priori vs A Posteriori. Students will also study and compare the virtues of different philosophical schools of thought including Rationalism, Innate knowledge, Knowledge Empiricism, Concept Innatism, Concept Empiricism.

    Theories of perception: In this element of the module, students will look at the Philosophical theories attempting to explain the relationship between reality and our perspective of it. Students will consider whether we can ever perceive what is real and whether there is a reality for us to perceive. Students will explore this philosophical quandary via the theoretical frameworks of Idealism, Direct realism and Indirect realism.
    Moral Philosophy - Ethical theories: Where students look at some of the most prominent theories on ethics in terms of what is moral and how to be moral. Key theories studied will include Utilitarianism, Kantian ethics and Aristotle’s virtue theory.

    Applied Ethics: Where students consider ethical dilemmas in real life, such as the consumption of animal products and stealing, and debate whether and in what circumstances they could be justified. Students are expected to refer to the ethical theories they have studied when tackling these ethical issues.

    Metaethics: Where students will consider ethics and morality in terms of what morality actually is, rather than just how to be moral. Students will consider various arguments regarding the foundations, status and scope of moral values, words and properties. Key theories students will explore include emotivism, error theory, ethical naturalism and ethical non-naturalism, and prescriptivism.
    Metaphysics of God - The divine attributes: whereby students will study and learn the characteristics attributed to the concept of a God such as Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omnibenevolence, Eternal/immortal, and being personal in relation to mankind. Students will also study common criticisms of the manifestation of a God with all of the divine attributes and debate whether or not it is possible for a God meeting those criteria to exist. Students will cover key challenges to the concept of God such as the Euthyphro dilemma, the incompatibility of free will and Omniscience, and the problem of the stone.

    Does God Exist: Here students will look at some of the key arguments for and against the existence of God. Core arguments students will study include the Ontological argument, Teleological argument and Cosmological argument as well as addressing the problem of evil and free will. Students will consider the theories posited by key Philosophers including Descartes, Aquinas, John Mackie, Hume, William Paley and Kant with regards to whether is a God as well as whether and how we can prove his existence.

    Religious Language: Students will contemplate the nature of religious language and statements what statements such as “God exists” mean. The two core ideas students will study are Cognitivism and Non-Cognitivism. Students will learn about each argument for the role, purpose and truth of religious language. Within cognitivism, students will look at the verification and falsification principles, as well as their inherent self-defeating problem. Within Non-Cognitivism, students will mostly study the work of Wittgenstein and his language games.
    Metaphysics of Mind - What do we mean by “mind”?: Student’s will begin this module by addressing different responses to the question “What is the mind?”. Students will identify key features of mental states be introduced to the concept of “qualia” (phenomenal qualities) before addressing which mental states have qualia and which do not.

    Dualism: In studying Dualism, students will look at the various arguments that postulate whether or not there is a division between the body and the mind. Students will look at the work of Descartes and Jackson in detail, as well as other key thinkers such as Plato, and consider the differences, strengths and weaknesses of different types of Dualism argument including Substance Dualism, Property Dualism and the Knowledge Argument.

    Physicalism: As the opposing argument to Dualism, when studying Physicalism students will consider the argument that there is no division between the body and mind. Students will consider key arguments for Physicalism such as Functionalism, Behaviourism, Eliminative Materialism, and the Mind-brain type identity theory. Students will compare the merits and flaws of both Physicalism and Dualism and draw their own conclusions as to what they believe the mind really is.
    Assessment - The Philosophy A-level is assessed via two separate written exams each worth 50% of the overall grade. The exams take place at the end of the second year of the A-level course. One paper will cover Epistemology and Moral Philosophy and the other paper will cover the metaphysics of God and Philosophy of the mind. There are ten questions on each paper and five per module. Students have three hours for each exam and must attempt to answer all of the questions in that time.

    Benefits of studying Philosophy at A-Level

    An A-level in Philosophy is one of the most versatile qualifications a student can obtain. With a Philosophy A-level students develop a wide range of transferable and highly coveted skills that make them appealing candidates to employers and Universities alike. These skills will make adjusting to the workforce or the challenges of higher education much easier, whatever the field or subject.

    If you are running late for a booking then please do let the tutor know via the in-app messenger as soon as possible because the tutor may still have to finish the lesson at the scheduled time, depending on his/her availability. However, tutors will usually try to make up time lost at the end of the session for the intended duration, although it’s important to note that this is at the tutor’s discretion. Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson. If you are late for the lesson, tutors will charge for the full amount that has been agreed and confirmed. We operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, which means that if you cancel the lesson with 48 hours you will be charged the full amount.

    If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

    Yes. All tutors must have a valid DBS certificate before their profile goes live on the Tutor House site. We do in-house DBS checks, which means we get DBS done very quickly. If a tutor’s DBS certificate is not validated or has expired then their profile will taken down until a new DBS certificate is issued. Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date. A DBS (Disclosed Baring Service) is a way of checking tutors. Tutor House performs a background check, and a police checks. We make sure that all tutors are suitable to work with children and adults, before their profiles go live. The DBS replaced the CRB.
