EducationCompleted BA in Philosophy at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada
ExperienceHi, I'm Anthony. I'm a tutor specialising in philosophy, psychology, and English, as well as essay writing and assignments in other subjects.
My first class in university was a philosophy course: "Introduction to Ethics", summer of 2007. I fell in love with the field straight away: the complex ideas, the brilliant insights, the way philosophers can evoke all sorts of new possibilities and suggest new ways to live. Since then I've read widely, in both the analytic and continental traditions, and my passion for the field only grows deeper.
Philosophy is a tough subject, and in particular, a lot of the language that's used can be almost impossible for a newcomer to understand. I've spent a lot of time reading these texts and working through these ideas, so I'm able to guide you through the hard parts until you finally understand just what the writer is going on about.
I love philosophy, and this stuff is fun for me. I'd be thrilled to help you out along your path to "enlightenment" (whatever that means).
In addition, I'm a skilled writer and I know how to give precise and useful feedback on the style and content of your essays. It's hard to know just what to write or how to express the thought that's in your head: talk it over with me, and I'll help you smooth it out.
HobbiesI like to bike, sing opera, train in martial arts, and read - dense academic books, escapist fiction, and the odd webcomic too.
