Philosophy Tutoring Near Me
The student and I worked through her final paper outline during our session today. We approached organization and general writing tips first--the need to explore rather than state factual answers, the need to approach issues from several angles, and the need to be as clear and concise as possible, avoiding florid prose. I also helped clarify some of the issues the student was having with understanding Hume's approach to taste and aesthetics. I greatly enjoy working with the student and look forward to our next session.

We went over the structure of a philosophy paper, and how to organize the introduction and body paragraphs in a way that was clear and adhered to the philosophical writing approach. There were two essay prompts centering around the topic of organ procurement, and each prompt contained four questions to answer. The student wrote an outline for each essay prompt, and we walked through and discussed and fleshed out her ideas. I felt that this session was successful. The student is a good writer, she just needed help with making her arguments using a more philosophical writing approach. I look forward to working with her again if she ever needs help.

Went over categorical propositions, including how to break them down into type, what is distributed and draw a Venn diagram. Gave her several example problems to practice with. We then discussed the square of opposition and how to break it down so that it is helpful rather than confusing. At the end of the review, we began going over syllogisms, their figures and their moods.

The student and I discussed his Ethics and Philosophy final. We started with a discussion of the Existentialists (Kierkegaard, Sartre, and Nietzsche), then we discussed compassion, justice, courage, and gratitude. This discussion focused on modern philosophers (Foote, Branch, and others). We also discussed some Chinese philosophers (Mencius and Confucius) and ended the discussion on cruelty.

We worked on a philosophy essay that is due Feb 18, discussing what the teacher was asking, how to think about answering, and how to organize her essay. We did the very basics of an outline of her thinking on the subject. Our next meeting will be working on refining and smoothing the essay.

Philosophy class can be one of the most difficult subjects that you may take during your college career. Whether you are taking an introductory course or are deep into the surreal, intellectual mists of German idealism, the reading and writing that you do for a philosophy class is intense, and assignments can often seem overwhelming. Let Varsity Tutors help you find a personal guide to help you through your philosophical woes. We can help you connect with philosophy tutors across the country, who can help you succeed in class as well as gain a cultured love for philosophy. Through personalized tutoring, you are able to ask all the questions you need to without concern about disrupting a class or interrupting the lesson.

A personal tutor is a great asset in a course like philosophy. A private tutor can help you grasp the basics of philosophy through an introductory course by making its topics accessible, and can help you navigate the complex nexus of readings required for advanced or nuanced philosophy classes. From ethics and aesthetics to medieval philosophy and the history of the philosophy of science, professors in the field notoriously teach their courses in unique manners. This makes it very difficult to find the help that you need, for it may seem as if your professor is the only one who can provide such help, given his or her idiosyncratic syllabus. Your tutor creates their own lesson plan based on your course and academic needs. They may provide a variety of assignments that are carefully designed to allow you to practice your skills in between tutoring sessions. In addition, they can provide invaluable feedback while you are learning.
