About Us



Do I need to be at school or college?

No. But, if you are not, then you will need to make sure that you are entered to sit the exam at an approved centre - usually a local college. I can help you with this.

Are there any costs apart from the tutoring?

You will need a textbook. You may also want to attend a revision course.

What is the minimum time I should have for tutorials?

1 hour a week. However, a tutor cannot cover all aspects of topics in this time. You should devote at least 8 hours a week to your course, if you are an A Level or AS student, and at least 4 hours, if you are a GCSE student. A tutor is not a replacement for actually attending class and completing all the work set. A private tutor should be seen as supplementing what you learn in the classroom or at home, not a replacement for it.

What Do I Get Out Of Having A Tutor?

In one very important sense there is no useful general answer to this question. You may want to have a tutor because you are struggling to understand key ideas or how to answer certain kinds of questions. You may really like the subject, but feel you are not understanding as much as you would like in the time available in class. Maybe your teacher or lecturer is not a subject expert and is struggling to explain topics with the clarity or depth you would like. You may have a current grade that is worrying in terms of your progression to the second year of the course or in relation to your predicted grades for university or offers. You may just not want to leave anything to chance. Even with that unconditional offer from a decent university, there is no downside to securing the highest possible grades and perhaps trading up in the post-results race for places. The range of reasons is very wide. Our initial aim is to understand why you (or your parents!) are looking at tutorial support and to decide how we can most effectively help you.

There is, though, an equally important sense in which this question can be answered with great precision and universality. With the support of an effective tutor you should develop a confident command in the key elements in the study of the subject. We will help you understand the questions that define the subject. In grasping why certain questions - for example, ‘what is knowledge?’ or, ‘how should I lead my life?’ - are regarded as fundamental to philosophy you acquire a position to properly engage with the frequently difficult ideas in the course. We can explain the concepts, arguments and theories that attempt to provide answers to these questions. In appreciating the ideas and approaches of different thinkers and being albe to set out accurately their views, you can begin to evaluate the key theories. We can guide you through the skills and process of analysis and evaluation. You will need all of these to do as well as you can in examinations. More importantly, in being able to understand, explain and analyse fascinating and divergent approaches to fundamental questions you will know our world better. 


What Is Philosophy? 

The word ‘philosophy’ is derived from the Greek word which means ‘love of wisdom’. A less grand sounding, but more accurate definition of philosophy is as the enquiry into and reflection about the general features and nature of the world and our experience of it. From the very outset it is important to note that the nature, scope, subject matter and methods of philosophy are themselves the subject of much debate between philosophers, and they are indeed a subject of philosophical enquiry. With that warning in place we can generalise nonetheless about the aim of philosophical investigation....

What Is Sociology?

Sociology is the study of society.  It involves studying social groups, such as men and women, different social classes and different ethnic, religious and age groups.  Often sociology highlights differences and inequalities between these groups and tries to explain these inequalities.

It is also concerned with studying social problems such as racism, gender inequality, crime and poverty, including where they stem from and how they affect people’s chances in life.
