Dr Nicholas Clarke

I completed a PhD in philosophy at the University of London in 2019, passing with no corrections required. My research focused upon ethics and metaethics. Prior to that, I earned a master’s degree in philosophy, gaining distinctions in all modules (i.e. metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, metaethics, political philosophy, and history of philosophy), with a very high distinction in my dissertation (a conjunction of the philosophy of religion and Bayesian probability). Given my academic background, I am well qualified to tutor A Level or undergraduate philosophy. Philosophy can be a challenging subject, but it is also an immensely rewarding one. My aim in tutoring is to demystify it — making things as clear and comprehensible as possible, and providing detailed and effective feedback. Not least, I want to make philosophy fun! Please email me at nclarke431@hotmail.com, telling me what area of philosophy you would like help with, and your level (A level or undergraduate).

Maria Balaska

I am a doctor of Philosophy and have teaching experience both with undergraduates and a-level students. I currently teach Philosophy of Mind, Ethics and Epistemology to A-level students in London. I am available both for private tutoring and e-mail/Skype support to students of all ages from A-level to Degree level. I offer help with writing essays and exam technique, as well as reading through and assessing the student’s written work. Moreover, for those studying Ancient Greek philosophy, I offer an introductory course to Ancient Greek to help with reading the original texts. Please contact me by email at maria@mariabalaska.com with the following information: what area of philosophy you would like tutoring help with, your level (undergraduate or A-level), how often and when you would like to be ‘tutored’ and what you require from tutoring and I will get back to you as soon as possible. For more information on my work and research see mariabalaska.com

Dan Beaton

I provide a philosophy and religious studies tutoring service to students in all areas of London. I have over a decades experience in the realm of philosophy education and teaching. I received my bachelor’s degree with First Class Honours in 2005 at the University of Bristol. I continued my studies at Bristol, where I received my MA with Distinction in February 2008. I have taught AQA philosophy at Skinner’s Academy and Bsix College in Hackney, London. I am presently based as a humanities teacher for The Southover Partnership School, in North London, where I teach – among other things – Edexcel religious studies at A-Level. I also communicate philosophical ideas through my YouTube channel, ‘offthebeatontrack’. My expertise resides in the areas of ethics and philosophy of religion, but I can also help you to untangle the many confusions surrounding those tricky epistemology subjects, including direct realism, indirect realism, idealism, the tripartite definition of knowledge, and the origin of concepts. In general, I help students by providing new perspectives and resources on key topics, and by helping to clarify technical terms, as well as offering essay guidance, including pre-marking and plans.

Amy Hemingway

I graduated with a Masters Degree in Theology from Oxford University. I have been tutoring in Religious Studies and Philosophy at GCSE and A Level for over 6 years in Oxford. I am fully CRB checked and have taken courses in child safety and protection online. I aim to make philosophy as interesting as possible for the student, and to bring the questions to life rather than the student feeling bogged down and overwhelmed by wordy textbooks and confusing vocabulary. I am deeply passionate about helping others get closer to the truth about themselves and the universe, and at the end of the day this is why studying Philosophy matters. The quest for truth must always be the most important aspect of the course. For assistance with your course, at whatever level it may be, please contact me on amy@hemingwayart.co.uk.

Rachel Jowett

I have been tutoring the AQA Philosophy and OCR Religious Studies for the past 10 years, including teaching the AQA course at a 6th Form College (where my students received the best results in Sussex for value added & 90% percentile Nationally) before becoming a full-time tutor. I’m a qualified teacher and senior examiner, have a BA (Hons) in Philosophy from University of Leeds, was awarded ‘Best Online Service’ by TTLN Business Awards in 2020. I can offer a range of electronic resources and have a track record of improving students’ marks by at least 2 grade boundaries. My extensive examining experience gives me an insight into how students can best approach exams: how to answer questions to maximise marks, common student misunderstandings and timekeeping. I can help students with planning essays, improving their critical analysis and evaluation, revision techniques, note taking and application of ethical theories. I created my own range of resources to provide students with complete notes, essay guides, mock exams and revision checklists. Feedback from students consistently describes me as knowledgeable, friendly, enthusiastic and able to breakdown and explain topics so that students can grasp the often-complex material. You can get in touch with me via my website  http://rcrtuition.com/ or email rachel@rcrtuition.com or call 07904863792.

Joanne Lovesey

I have been teaching A level philosophy for 7 years. I know exactly what it takes to excel and how to teach this in a straightforward and engaging way, and most of my students have achieved A or A* grades. Some of these achievements reflect very impressive improvements, and I take on students of all abilities. In addition to my teaching experience at A Level, I’ve taught at the Undergraduate level for 5 years, giving lectures, seminars, and tuition to undergraduates. I have a First Class degree from Reading, a BPhil from Oxford University, and a PhD from Heythrop, University of London. I will tailor the style, pace, content, and depth of teaching to support your growth, which will depend on your needs, abilities, goals, and learning style. I can teach content from any A level syllabus, and can coach on exam technique and essay writing technique for any exam board, which can have a big effect on final results. If you would like to understand the subject better, go beyond what you’ve covered in the classroom, prepare for philosophy at university, or simply to get the best exam grade possible, get in touch! I can teach face-to-face from home in Reading, or at your home or public location in Bristol, London, or possibly other places within reach (at a possible extra cost for travel) and can also offer online help (usually via Skype) for anyone worldwide. I am also able to offer help with essays and mock exams, which can be done either face to face or over email and Skype. Contact me with information about how I can help you at info@philosophytuition.com or via my contact form on www.philosophytuition.com.
