Learn Key Ideas From Leading Figures in Philosophy

I have a BA and MA in philosophy and my goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. My class will give students a comprehensive, but manageable, introduction to key philosophy ideas from leading figures in western philosophy with a strong emphasis on idea-engagement, encouraging students to formulate their own perspectives.

-Single lesson package:
Students will receive a lesson in, and explore the ideas of, Plato, Kant, and Nietzsche.

- Five lesson package
Students will receive homework and will engage with the ideas of Aristotle and Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, Sartre, and Heidegger.

- Ten lesson package
Students will be given a comprehensive philosophy package. We will start by exploring the Pre-Socratics, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. We then will investigate the ideas of Descartes, Kant and Locke. We then proceed to explore more contemporary philosophy, exploring Nietzsche, Sartre, and Heidegger.

Philosophy courses (initiation or deepening, all concerned public)

Feel free to contact me for more information.

Anya
Introduction to philosophy: mind and consciousness
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.

Dora
Greek Lessons for all levels (A1-C2) taught by a native speaker
Hello everybody! My name is Dora. I am from Thessaloniki, Greece and I live in Maastricht, Netherlands. I graduated from the Department of Philology with a specialization in Classics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I am an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher. With the four-month Erasmus internship as a teacher of Greek language at the University of Zaragoza, Spain, I had the opportunity to gain teaching experience and interact with people of different cultural background. It improved my communication skills and boosted my self-confidence and, also, gave me the chance to realise the importance of digital media in education. I speak Greek, English and French. All the educational material is provided by me! I am looking forward to meeting you!

Laetitia

Spiros
Greek language teacher for students 7-18 years old or adults
I have been teaching Greek and Latin to students of secondary education successfully for the last twenty years. I have attained Bachelor Classical Greek and Latin Language and Literature, in National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. In addition, I have gained Master (Ma) in Pedagogical Psychology and Educational Act in Harokopio University of Athens. I am really enthusiastic and eager to help young students and the institution to achieve their goals. Also, I am a very reliable, communicative and sociable person, willing to co operate with multicultural people. I have a very good knowledge of my subject and immense contact with students and teenagers. The studies in pedagogical psychology have offered me important opportunities to treat difficult cases and behaviors of students or parents. In addition, I can make decisions quickly and implement them in order to achieve the control of my students in the class. Furthermore, experience in education has helped me to develop very good relationships with the parents of my students and co-operate with them.

Philosophie niveau lycée : préparation au baccalauréat de philosophie
La philosophie est une matière souvent mal vue ou perçue comme difficile, c'est pour cela que l'enseignement de la philosophie est délicat. Pour se faire, il faut aider un maximum l'étudiant dans ses révisions, dans la compréhension et dans l'abord de la matière. Le but de ce cours est de mettre l'étudiant ou l'élève en confiance avec la matière afin d'aborder plus sérieusement les notions et les exercices demandés pour les examens finaux : le baccalauréat de philosophie. Afin d'aider au mieux l'élève ou l'étudiant, nous reviendrons ensemble sur les difficultés et ou les incompréhensions pour les corriger et permettre à ce dernier de réussir au mieux sa scolarité en philosophie. Nous aborderons alors plus sereinement les exercices écrits tels que la dissertation ou l'explication de texte. Afin de préparer au mieux l'élève ou l'étudiant, je propose plusieurs exercices écrits voire des bacs blancs en fin d'année pour évaluer concrètement l'élève ou l'étudiant et lui permettre de se situer pour le jour de l'examen. Plus on s'entraine, plus c'est simple pour la suite. Je suis toujours à l'écoute et remets en question mes méthodes si cela ne fonctionne pas. Ce cours est un lieu de bienveillance, sans jugement. Ce cours sert à progresser à sa vitesse sans d'autres élèves autour. Le cours se propose comme un cours magistral ou comme une discussion constante entre l'élève et moi-même.

Philosophy of Baccalaureate or for adults who want to start.
Philosophy for school age or adults. I am licensed. I love this subject and my enthusiasm is contagious. We will review the topics for which the student has exams or those that the student feels are of special interest. Textbooks sometimes make this subject more difficult and unenjoyable than it should be.
