Philosophy of mind and consciousness: an introduction
What is the nature of consciousness? Is there a self? Is the mind identical to the brain? Can life have meaning in a physical universe? These are big questions that philosophy can help tackle. Together, we will talk about how to understand these questions more precisely, look at some answers, and learn how to approach both questions and answers using critical thinking tools. Who is this class for? Students who've never taken philosophy, adults who are interested in exploring big ideas, and scientists and entrepreneurs who'd like to learn how to think about these questions in a more rigorous way.

Philosophy and the History of Philosophy (Socrates onward...)
""Thoughts without content are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind." -Immanuel Kant, Critique of Pure Reason. This short but great quote is one of the reasons why Philosophy is such a unique discipline. Philosophy has the magnificent ability of exposing us to a broad field of ideas (like the one formulated by Kant) ranging between Metaphysics, Ethics, Ontology, Epistemology, Aesthetics, etc. and permitting them to enter our minds as they challenge our current worldviews. In addition, philosophy grants us a view of the tumultuous development and change of thought throughout different historical epochs. About this course: I know that Philosophy is not an easy subject, especially in the initial courses where professors commonly point at a random chair and try to make profound points about Platonic thought. I offer help to anyone who needs help with homework, assignments, tests, readings, etc. I am here for you. My main interests: Early Greek, Stoicism, Medieval, Enlightenment, Post-Enlightenment, Existentialism, Post-Structuralism.

Art Lessons and History of Art for Children and Young people
Art classes These classes focus on developing the skills to produce artworks utilising diverse media. The techniques I teach are drawing, painting, sculpture, and engraving, as well as mixed media, where students experiment a combination of techniques and materials, such as photomontage, xilocollage, building of sculptures with non-conventional objects, etc. Art appreciation & Art History I use a combination of techniques for Art Appreciation and Art History classes. Some are based on the Visual Thinking Strategies method and guided enquiry, as well as on my background in drama to relate to artworks with all the senses and the emotions. Similarly, my guided observation works on helping students identify and understand compositional principles. The aim of these classes is to get learners thinking about what they see and what it could mean. This can be done with any sort of image. This type of approach is particularly important nowadays that human culture has become eminently visual. And students extract enormous joy by sharing and discussing their ideas.
French courses (grammar-vocabulary) and art history courses in English or French
As a French art history student in the Netherlands, I offer courses in the disciplines I specialize in: French and art history. I have completed my academic career as I am in M2 this year! Thanks to my literary background I am used to teaching French to all levels and ages: beginners or advanced! During our lessons we will discuss grammar and vocabulary as well as French culture. That's why I also offer art history classes (in French or English): we can either focus on learning about the art of a specific period or combine learning French and art history by doing art history classes in French on French art! It's a very fun way to learn this language that can sometimes be scary. Do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested!
History of art history, art valuation and art market. For beginners, bachelors and masters
Art history is a hobby for some people, for others it is a working tool to analyse the social and cultural context. It helps you to orientate yourself in the world of rapid change and globalisation. The understanding of cultural discourse is a rich and unique background which may impress your interlocutor and gain you points in the eyes of your friends and colleagues. One of the main goals I try to achieve as a tutor is to encourage my students to explore the art world around them. In my lessons, I create a friendly environment to teach how to analyse paintings having factual information, and how to look at the art from the big scale perspective. The lessons are specifically tailored to my student's interests, weaknesses and concerns and from this nurture a solid learning style that they will be able to take with them to further education. I have a methodical approach to learning where every lesson is planned, and materials are distributed afterwards to the student. I am always ready to adapt the lessons quickly to the level of the student’s preparation and knowledge, receiving feedback from parents, students or teachers.

History of Art for A-Level, Bachelor's and Beginners!
One of the main goals I try to achieve as a tutor is to encourage my students to explore the world around them from a new perspective. With 1-1 teaching, I am able to create lessons that are specifically tailored to my student's interests, weaknesses and concerns and from this nurture a solid learning style that they will be able to take with them to further education. Currently, I am studying for my second degree in History of Art and have strong and extensive knowledge in structuring essays and approaches to the humanities. Honing and improving essay writing skills will prove invaluable to students when reaching higher education and exams which I believe my tutelage would help with! I usually have a methodical approach to learning where each lesson is planned out with upcoming exams, weak subjects and repeated mistakes in mind. I always find that my students work better when they have small and achievable goals to reach in each session. As an example, my lessons are structured with upcoming homework as a first target with each subject's homework being one goal smashed. After that, revision or any marked work with mistakes/problem areas is looked into and divided into sections/goals that they can achieve. I usually create a points system where with enough points they win a small prize. This is not a requirement of my teaching but I find it works very well! I also discuss with parents before starting tutorials what they know to be their weaker academic points, how best they respond to teaching and any feedback they may have from teachers with regard to the work outside school. Lessons are always planned with the student's learning style in mind and I am always open to adapting and receiving feedback from parents, teachers and students. Should a student find my teaching style, not to their liking, I will always be happy to change and amend my style to fit them.
Counselling and Wellbeing for healthy mental health

My goal is that you have a healthy mental health and to ensure your wellbeing.
