This summer, I graduated from The Queen’s College, Oxford, in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. I believe that studying these disciplines provides students with the evaluative and analytic tools needed to navigate a complex and chaotic world with confidence. It’s clear to me that studying these subjects has had a positive effect on my own life, and I want other students to have a similarly enriching experience. I think both economics and philosophy have great practical relevance for our lives and I’ll try to show students the ways in which this is so.
These subjects, though enjoyable, are difficult to study. Moreover, they are difficult in their own particular ways, so they merit their own learning approaches.
In philosophy, I find that students at GCSE or A-level often haven’t had the opportunity to have a philosophical discussion about the questions at hand. The result of this is that students haven’t yet fully articulated their thoughts on the issues and arrived at a position through a reasoned, sound argument. With this in mind, the tutorials will aim to provide such an opportunity. If a student wants to discuss a particular topic, then such a discussion will be the focus. If the student wants to discuss some particular argument or position, then we will discuss that point in particular, comparing and contrasting it with other relevant positions. Equally, we can discuss and practice essay structure or exam technique.
In economics, we’ll generally give a rigorous treatment of the theory, and then look at some real-life applications of that theory. However, I am of course open to any preferences that the student has over what shape the session should take. I look forward to meeting you.
We only take tutor applications from candidates who are studying at the UK’s leading universities. Candidates who fulfil our grade criteria then pass to the interview stage, where a member of the TiC team will personally assess them for subject knowledge, communication skills and general tutoring approach. About 1 in 10 becomes a tutor on our site.
