When teaching or tutoring it's important to keep in mind that we can actually have a strong impact on our students' life. Their choices, their opportunities in life will also depend on the level of teaching they received. I am currently working towards a 2:1 in Physics and Philosophy BSc at King's College London. My previous experience in tutoring specialises in mainly GCSE and KS3 maths and physics. I am also an Italian native speaker.

Hello! I am a London born writer and teacher. I teach English at Goldsmiths College, University of London and I tutor young people and adults in all humanities subjects. I love to help students of all ages to engage with literature and succeed in exams at all levels. I have a background in English Language teaching, having taught EFL for four years, and am currently an Academic English Lecturer, private tutor and teacher of Creative and Business Writing. If you're looking to improve grades, learn how to enjoy study, or books - get in touch! I have a background in Sociology, so I've coached A level and GCSE students through this subject in my private tuition. I also have a 1st class honours degree in English Langauge and Literature and would be a great tutor for anyone who wants to improve their KS 3+, GCSE or A-level grades at this level. I am completing a Masters in English and Creative Writing and Goldsmiths College, and many of my students are adults who just want to explore texts or writing at a deeper level. Because of my background in EFL, I'm an expert in the English language and run monthly clubs for speakers of other languages who want to improve their speaking, reading, listening or writing. Over my in-school career, I've taught Sociology, Philosophy, English Literature and Language, EFL, Academic English, and study skills from ages 16 to 60, from secondary to PhD level, and I'm very proud of my 100% success rate! I take a very student-centred approach. I like to find a way into the topic that interests my student. For example, last week I taught my adult pre-masters English students how to speed read through a text on amateur journalism. This summer I taught Lacanian philosophical theory to first year BA students via comics. Last month, in a 121 lesson my student and went to the library to practice speaking English, and yesterday I taught a 7-year-old how to write a poem by looking at the food in her cupboard. What I do is so varied, I tend to be led by the student's goals. What exams are coming up, and when? What are the current strengths and concerns? How confident is the student in their aims? Finally, how can I realistically bridge the gap between the knowledge the student has and the knowledge they need?

Why work with a private Philosophy tutor?

Philosophy is a fantastic subject for broadening the minds of student’s and teaching valuable, highly transferable skills. In Philosophy, students are asked to think about, analyse and debate the big questions in life, challenge their own assumptions and consider alternative arguments. While much of Philosophy can appear abstract, it has real-life applications in daily life, both in terms of the skills learned and the ideas understood through Philosophy study.

While studying Philosophy is undoubtedly rewarding, it is also an inherently challenging course. Student’s are expected to tackle big ideas and theories from the outset, as well as being required to show excellent analytical, critical and communication skills. There are a number of complex and broad topics to study in addition to numerous philosophers and theories to learn and analyse. The quantity and complexity of the course differs from other subjects and can often leave students feeling lost or overwhelmed.

By enlisting the help of an experienced and passionate private Philosophy tutor, student’s can get the support and guidance they need, not just to succeed, but to thrive in their Philosophy studies.

Who can benefit from a Philosophy tutor?

Whether you are just starting out in your Philosophy studies or you’re neck-deep in a Philosophy degree, a private Philosophy tutor can ensure you get the most out of your studies. From finding an A-Level Philosophy tutor to help you get top grades to Philosophy tutors for adult learners, Tutor House are able to help students of every level and age benefit from the help of expert private Philosophy tuition. Here are just a few of the areas a Philosophy tutor can help with:

IGCSE or GCSE Philosophy tutor - At GCSE and IGCSE level students can study Religious Studies in preparation for Philosophy studies at A-Level or University. While the GCSE course is still primarily focused on developing a student’s knowledge and understanding of the world’s major religions, students are asked to consider Philosophical issues such as whether and how religion dictates morality, whether there is a God, and how to determine what is right and wrong. At GCSE level, student’s are expected to have an in-depth knowledge of the core religions and be able to analyse them sensitively but critically. Developing the necessary skills and understanding to succeed in GCSE Religious Studies is vital both in terms of providing students with a top quality qualification and preparing them for Philosophy studies in further education. The skills learned in Religious Studies are transferable and highly desirable both for further study across all subjects and in future employment. However, Religious Studies is a difficult course to excel in, with students needing to show multiple levels of understanding and analysis. The guidance of an experienced Philosophy or GCSE Religious Studies tutor can ensure that a student develops the knowledge and analytical thinking ability required for success both in their GCSEs and beyond.
Pre-U, IB or A-Level tutor - A level Philosophy or Philosophy and Ethics courses are a student’s first chance to study pure Philosophy in an academic setting. A-Level Philosophy courses move away from a focus on world religions and introduce students to the core elements of Philosophical study. Students will learn about Epistemology, Moral philosophy, Metaphysics of mind, and Metaphysics of God. Students will also be expected to study and critique the theories of renowned philosophers, as well as applying these theories and their own ideas to real-life situations. The Philosophy A-Level curriculum is particularly challenging, requiring students to think about the world and specific issues in a whole new way as well as absorbing a lot of new information. Working with a Philosophy or Philosophy and Ethics A-Level tutor ensures students are able to adjust their study skills to incorporate the high level of contemplation required for success in an A-Level Philosophy course. From explaining complex concepts and philosophical arguments to developing a students argument and essay writing skills, A-Level Philosophy tutors can help students grow their knowledge and analytical abilities so they are sure to achieve top grades in this critical A-Level. With experience teaching the syllabuses of all major Philosophy A-Level exam boards, including AQA and CIFE, our expert Philosophy A-Level tutors know exactly how to guide a student to top grades. Find your perfect A-Level Philosophy tutor with Tutor House today and guarantee success at this vital point in your academic career.
Philosophy Degree tutor - In a Philosophy degree, students are required to think in an entirely new way and on a whole new level. Not only will students be required to study, analyse and critique the theories of Philosophers past and present, they will also be expected to use these theories and their own original ideas to tackle big questions such as; “Can we ever really know anything?”,” “Is there a God?”, “What is most important, to be right or to be good?”, “What is morality and does it exist beyond mankind?” and “are people ever really free?”. Philosophy degrees are extremely challenging, with many students finding the increased academic rigour and new studying style difficult to adjust to. Our specialist Philosophy degree tutors are able to support students through the transition from A-Level Philosophy into University education and guide them throughout their Philosophy degree. With the support of an experienced Tutor House tutor, many of whom are also Philosophy lecturers and professors, students can reach a whole new level of understanding and thrive in their course. To make the most of your University Philosophy course and emerge with a top quality degree, find your perfect Philosophy degree tutor today.
Philosophy tutor for an adult learner - Adult learners have all sorts of reasons for studying Philosophy. For some, study is for a qualification to boost their chances of a promotion or to make a career change (multiple industries are moving towards employing Philosophy graduates). For others, it’s more about expanding their skillset or finding answers to those big questions that follow you through life. Whatever your reasons, a private Philosophy tutor for adult learners can create specialised tuition sessions that ensure you meet your goals. With flexible tuition options, including online Philosophy tutors, we can provide top quality Philosophy tuition to a budget and schedule that works for you.

Tutoring FAQs

A

Yes, we operate a 48 hour cancellation policy. Our policy protects both tutor and customer. You can cancel your booking without incurring any charges as long as it’s cancelled at least 48 hours before the lesson is due to take place. However, if you cancel your lesson within 48 hours you will be charged the full amount. If there is an unforeseen circumstance, then both the tutor and Tutor House will discuss this with you. In some situations lessons can be rescheduled (free of charge), but this is at the tutor’s discretion.

A

Yes, we do take a fee, but at a fraction of the rate which other companies charge. We don’t have a sign up fee for new customers, we don’t charge an introduction fee, and we don’t charge administration fees. However, we do charge a small commission which pays for the security of tutors (we meet all tutors, check their DBS certificates and ensure they are who they say there are), and the maintenance of the site. If you have any problems using the site, you can always email or call us.

A

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.

A

While you think it is faster it elevates your risk and you use lose all the benefits of Tutor House policies. Paying the tutor directly is NOT secure nor protected. If you do pay a tutor outside of the Tutor House website you will not be protected by our 48 Hour Cancelation Policy, our Disputes Policy or our Refund Policy. We also can not protect you from fraud or spam accounts. Before messaging a tutor you are required to sign our Terms and Conditions. Any loss of earning would be considered a legal matter. Tutor House is designed to introduce excellent tutors to customers putting tutors in touch with students and learners. We help and support students to get the best out of their learning experience. If you use the Tutor House website you must complete all bookings within the online platform, including the arrangement of any other services provided by tutors for clients. If you make any arrangement with a tutor that you were introduced to through Tutor House, outside the online platform, either for tuition or payment, you will have broken our terms and conditions. In this case, neither the tutor or customer (parent or student) will be protected or covered, as mentioned above. For more information about payment please refer to our terms and conditions.

A

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.

A

Booking and paying for private tuition has never been easier! As a customer, you’ll need to add your credit or debt card details to your profile after you sign in. You can pay the tutor directly and securely through the Tutor House website. However, if you do pay outside of the Tutor House site, you will not be protected by our 48 hour Cancelation Policy, nor our Disputes or Refunds Policy, we also do not guarantee that you’ll be protected from fraud. You will then receive a confirmation email notifying you of the hours completed with the tutor. The email will also confirm the date and time that the lesson(s) took place. Payment will be automatically processed by Tutor House’s Payment Service Provider (PSP). We do not charge you a joining fee or an administration fee, instead we allow you to interact with your chosen tutor directly. You pay the tutor online using a debit or credit card, with your booking being secure and private. Our tutors get paid on the same day of the lesson, so please make sure that you’ve confirmed the lesson before your tutor arrives. Of course! We use Stripe as our third party payment platform. Stripe are PCI compliant, so you’re protected from fraud, and can we issued refunds without any cost to you. (But only if you pay through the website, please see our terms).

A

After selecting your tutor for your desired material, you can book a lesson right away! Send an inquiry to your selected Tutor and once a tutor accepts your inquiry, it will be registered as an ‘open enquiry’ within your messages tab. This is where you will be able to communicate with our tutors, discuss your requirements, arrange lesson times, and book and pay for lessons. When you submit your booking request, the credit card details provided will be subject to an authorisation hold (to the total amount agreed with the tutor for the cost of the initial session and for any other lessons which will take place thereafter). Not only that, but you can also rate and review your tutor once you’ve had your lesson! Tutor House values your feedback.

A

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.

A

By default, when searching for a tutor you will be shown the nearest tutors to your location. Travelling longer distances may incur additional travel costs; however the tutor will inform you if this is the case, and any travel costs can be mutually agreed before the lesson is booked. Most tutors would expect to travel up to 45 minutes to get you, at no extra cost. If there are additional charges the tutor will make you aware of that. You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.

A

Once you have made the lesson request, you can communicate with the tutor. You can discuss your tuition requirements and the lesson timing with in-app instant messaging. The messaging is instant, so your tutor will receive the notification via both; the website and email. Hence he or she can respond to immediately. You may wish to discuss your preferred lesson time and date, or discuss which exam board you’re studying for A-levels and GCSE’s, or even to discuss specific text and books which you are currently studying. Also, You can communicate with the tutor with the instant in-app messaging at any point (before or after the booking has been made). Please note that it is possible for you and the tutor to mutually agree to booking changes after this stage. This must be done within the messenger app on the website. You can also use the same means of comunication to find out more about the tutor, after you have requested a booking. In addition to this you can always check the tutors reviews and ranking.

While much of Philosophy can appear abstract, it has real-life applications in daily life, both in terms of the skills learned and the ideas understood through Philosophy study.

While studying Philosophy is undoubtedly rewarding, it is also an inherently challenging course. Student’s are expected to tackle big ideas and theories from the outset, as well as being required to show excellent analytical, critical and communication skills. There are a number of complex and broad topics to study in addition to numerous philosophers and theories to learn and analyse. The quantity and complexity of the course differs from other subjects and can often leave students feeling lost or overwhelmed.

By enlisting the help of an experienced and passionate private Philosophy tutor, student’s can get the support and guidance they need, not just to succeed, but to thrive in their Philosophy studies.

Who can benefit from a Philosophy tutor?

Whether you are just starting out in your Philosophy studies or you’re neck-deep in a Philosophy degree, a private Philosophy tutor can ensure you get the most out of your studies. From finding an A-Level Philosophy tutor to help you get top grades to Philosophy tutors for adult learners, Tutor House are able to help students of every level and age benefit from the help of expert private Philosophy tuition. Here are just a few of the areas a Philosophy tutor can help with:

IGCSE or GCSE Philosophy tutor - At GCSE and IGCSE level students can study Religious Studies in preparation for Philosophy studies at A-Level or University. While the GCSE course is still primarily focused on developing a student’s knowledge and understanding of the world’s major religions, students are asked to consider Philosophical issues such as whether and how religion dictates morality, whether there is a God, and how to determine what is right and wrong. At GCSE level, student’s are expected to have an in-depth knowledge of the core religions and be able to analyse them sensitively but critically. Developing the necessary skills and understanding to succeed in GCSE Religious Studies is vital both in terms of providing students with a top quality qualification and preparing them for Philosophy studies in further education. The skills learned in Religious Studies are transferable and highly desirable both for further study across all subjects and in future employment. However, Religious Studies is a difficult course to excel in, with students needing to show multiple levels of understanding and analysis. The guidance of an experienced Philosophy or GCSE Religious Studies tutor can ensure that a student develops the knowledge and analytical thinking ability required for success both in their GCSEs and beyond.
Pre-U, IB or A-Level tutor - A level Philosophy or Philosophy and Ethics courses are a student’s first chance to study pure Philosophy in an academic setting. A-Level Philosophy courses move away from a focus on world religions and introduce students to the core elements of Philosophical study. Students will learn about Epistemology, Moral philosophy, Metaphysics of mind, and Metaphysics of God. Students will also be expected to study and critique the theories of renowned philosophers, as well as applying these theories and their own ideas to real-life situations. The Philosophy A-Level curriculum is particularly challenging, requiring students to think about the world and specific issues in a whole new way as well as absorbing a lot of new information. Working with a Philosophy or Philosophy and Ethics A-Level tutor ensures students are able to adjust their study skills to incorporate the high level of contemplation required for success in an A-Level Philosophy course. From explaining complex concepts and philosophical arguments to developing a students argument and essay writing skills, A-Level Philosophy tutors can help students grow their knowledge and analytical abilities so they are sure to achieve top grades in this critical A-Level. With experience teaching the syllabuses of all major Philosophy A-Level exam boards, including AQA and CIFE, our expert Philosophy A-Level tutors know exactly how to guide a student to top grades. Find your perfect A-Level Philosophy tutor with Tutor House today and guarantee success at this vital point in your academic career.
Philosophy Degree tutor - In a Philosophy degree, students are required to think in an entirely new way and on a whole new level. Not only will students be required to study, analyse and critique the theories of Philosophers past and present, they will also be expected to use these theories and their own original ideas to tackle big questions such as; “Can we ever really know anything?”,” “Is there a God?”, “What is most important, to be right or to be good?”, “What is morality and does it exist beyond mankind?” and “are people ever really free?”. Philosophy degrees are extremely challenging, with many students finding the increased academic rigour and new studying style difficult to adjust to. Our specialist Philosophy degree tutors are able to support students through the transition from A-Level Philosophy into University education and guide them throughout their Philosophy degree. With the support of an experienced Tutor House tutor, many of whom are also Philosophy lecturers and professors, students can reach a whole new level of understanding and thrive in their course. To make the most of your University Philosophy course and emerge with a top quality degree, find your perfect Philosophy degree tutor today.
Philosophy tutor for an adult learner - Adult learners have all sorts of reasons for studying Philosophy. For some, study is for a qualification to boost their chances of a promotion or to make a career change (multiple industries are moving towards employing Philosophy graduates). For others, it’s more about expanding their skillset or finding answers to those big questions that follow you through life. Whatever your reasons, a private Philosophy tutor for adult learners can create specialised tuition sessions that ensure you meet your goals. With flexible tuition options, including online Philosophy tutors, we can provide top quality Philosophy tuition to a budget and schedule that works for you.

Tutoring FAQs

A

Yes, we operate a 48 hour cancellation policy. Our policy protects both tutor and customer. You can cancel your booking without incurring any charges as long as it’s cancelled at least 48 hours before the lesson is due to take place. However, if you cancel your lesson within 48 hours you will be charged the full amount. If there is an unforeseen circumstance, then both the tutor and Tutor House will discuss this with you. In some situations lessons can be rescheduled (free of charge), but this is at the tutor’s discretion.

Yes, we do take a fee, but at a fraction of the rate which other companies charge. We don’t have a sign up fee for new customers, we don’t charge an introduction fee, and we don’t charge administration fees. However, we do charge a small commission which pays for the security of tutors (we meet all tutors, check their DBS certificates and ensure they are who they say there are), and the maintenance of the site. If you have any problems using the site, you can always email or call us.

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.

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.

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.

By default, when searching for a tutor you will be shown the nearest tutors to your location. Travelling longer distances may incur additional travel costs; however the tutor will inform you if this is the case, and any travel costs can be mutually agreed before the lesson is booked. Most tutors would expect to travel up to 45 minutes to get you, at no extra cost. If there are additional charges the tutor will make you aware of that. You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.

A

Once you have made the lesson request, you can communicate with the tutor. You can discuss your tuition requirements and the lesson timing with in-app instant messaging.

Also, You can communicate with the tutor with the instant in-app messaging at any point (before or after the booking has been made). Please note that it is possible for you and the tutor to mutually agree to booking changes after this stage. This must be done within the messenger app on the website. You can also use the same means of comunication to find out more about the tutor, after you have requested a booking. In addition to this you can always check the tutors reviews and ranking.
