Willing to travel: 2 miles
Experience: I tutored philosophy at UNSW and the University of Tasmania`s Sydney campuses for three years while writing my doctorate. I received very positive feedback from my students in my teaching evaluations, with 90% satisfied with the quality of my teaching. This is how some of my previous students described my teaching:
"James was friendly, approachable and encouraged student participation in classes"
"James was a great tutor, his activities were helpful and fun, allowing us to fully grasp each weeks content. Not only that, but when
someone asked James for help he tried his best to explain or simplify the concept or idea"
"The best tutor I`ve had at uni in the three years I`ve been here."
"he was knowledgeable, interesting, engaging and related the material to our lives well"
I also have experience teaching younger students as I taught philosophy to years 7 and 8 at Kincoppal-Rose Bay School.
