I am happy to provide lessons on philosophy and related subjects to all ages up to a university level. Through personalized one-to-one lessons, I allow my students to understand even the most abstract of concepts. I try to bring philosophy down to earth - focusing on the history, social context and practical implications of ideas.
I am a philosophy graduate who studied at the University of Durham in the UK. I have a wide range of interests and areas of competence, including but not limited to: ethics, politics, metaphysics, continental philosophy, ancient philosophy and feminist theory. I also have experience in editing a philosophy journal, working as a research assistant, and working as a paid scholar. I am bilingual, speaking English and Spanish.
My advertised rates are for high school level tutoring. If you require help with university level philosophy the fees are $35 an hour.
