Philosophy Tutor Testimonials

Philosophy Tutor Testimonials

I've been a philosophy tutor for many years, but it's always great when I receive thanks for my tuition services.

Perhaps the strongest vote of confidence is from those school and college students who go on to study philosophy at university and who return for university-level philosophy tuition.

To help them achieve their academic goals and graduate successfully with a philosophy degree of their own is a considerable personal and professional reward.

I welcome comments not only from my university, college and school students; but also from their parents. Sometimes things are as stressful for them as for the students themselves!

I try to guard against complacency, though, by using the feedback continually to improve my philosophy tuition services.

Here is a particularly gratifying testimonial from a relieved parent:

We didn't engage any tutors during her first year, but have now experienced the tuition of five different tutors across her various subjects. I had not realised how much tutor's vary. One in particular appeared to know considerably less of the subject matter than Anna, and was also unfamiliar with the exam board requirements, which was rather worrying and unhelpful! The session Anna had with you, however, was excellent, and stood apart, in terms of your concise delivery of relevant material and exam tips. She came away from her tutor session with you, buoyed up and enthusiastic about Philosophy which was great.

I know he was feeling confused and frustrated with the ethics and you've helped him enormously to simplify things with a structured approach. It's a big relief for him.

He's going to put the structure and learning into action in the coming days; he'd like to revise a bit too and then we'll get back to you on some essay marking.

Dear Phil,

Thank you very much for the Philosophy masterclass you have just given B. She said it was enormously helpful.

We were beginning to lose hope following a couple of disappointing skype tutor sessions with tutors supplied by an agency, but B couldn't speak highly enough of you and your session and how helpful it was finally to be told what she needs to be doing!

I would be interested in any feedback you have regarding B's studies, and perhaps you could let me know what you recommend for her from here in terms of your classes/essay marking etc.

Thank you very much again,
