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.

Sid
Society and the Political Economy: Law, War, History and Philosophy
Vincent Van Gogh once said something to the effect that greatness is a series of little things coming together, Emile Durkheim the great French sociologist first 'coined', "the whole is more than the sum of its parts" and Montesquieu conceived of laws in relation to climate. What do all of these have to do with each other? The fact that the interpretation and understanding of one of the realms of socio-political knowledge is not enough to either understand that single discipline of study whether it be Law, History, Political Science, Economics, Sociology or Philosophy- you cannot separate any from the whole and be able to understand the Short, Nasty,Brutish™ nature that reality is and that conditions human life. While my studies and work have nigh been exclusively related to Law, my interests which pushed me there were/are seemingly very different. Through my experience I may humbly submit that the the perspectives that each discipline approaches problems with are crucial in solving very distinct "linguistic" problems within their specific paradigms. They however are victims of dogma as is academia in general it would be fair to say. Living in the times we do, it is not only necessary as a basic informational issue but as an issue of responsible citizenry, young adults must be well educated about the political economy. Whether you're looking to study and/or are currently studying and/or want to learn about any of the aforementioned subjects whether in conjunction with current coursework and/or assignments, or if you're just interested and would like to learn about a specific period in time, this is for you.

Serdane
Old language courses for high school students.
My name is Serdane and I offer language courses for students in grades 1 to 4 who would find it difficult to find a way of working that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority is to give the student confidence: Latin and Greek are within everyone's reach when they are well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can pursue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My price includes a complete tutoring (private lessons, the possibility to ask questions outside class hours, writing and correcting questions, etc.).

Claire-Sybille
to learn ancient Greek or biblical Greek, course of support
Learning ancient Greek opens to the roots of our western way of thinking, philosophy, logic, and also gives insights into the functioning of our modern languages. Learning Biblical Greek gives access to the reading of New Testament texts in the original language, which makes it possible to get closer to the way of thinking and speaking about the time. Reading in the original language allows you to discover a deeper meaning to the text that we read "from always" This reading offers a freshness of reading and opens a world of meaning.

Rafaël
Philosophy (initiation or deepening, all concerned)
This course is primarily an introduction to philosophy, ideal for beginners. We will discuss the major currents, from Antiquity to the contemporary era. For those who want to go further, I propose more in-depth courses in the following disciplines: general epistemology, anthropology, philosophy of science, philosophy of nature, moral philosophy, aesthetics, metaphysics.

Nadège
To progress in French and in philosophy with a professional of the particular course (more than 10 years of experience at your service!)
Presentation : Already a twelfth grade in private class ... It is completely by chance that I started in this activity at the exit of the college, not wishing to pass the CAPES immediately and finally, I found the job that suits me in every way. Each new student is a new adventure: human, cultural, psychological. The private lesson is a space of exchange where one can answer in a perfectly adapted way to the problems (sometimes to the distress ...) of a young adult in the making. After practicing in Marseille and Rennes, I live today in Finland! But I do not intend to stop my job that I always practice with passion and I'm looking for students who want to work by webcam, to complete my schedule. The advantages of the course by webcam are numerous for the student: - Relax at home in a familiar environment. - Quick exchange of documents: in my subjects, one always needs an unexpected text which invites itself according to the conversation! - Flexibility of the organization - Ludo-educational use of the web etc. CV COURSES - Since 2011: Teacher in private lessons in my account - From 2007 to 2011, Teacher Acadomia / Anacours / Completude / Legendre (2013): private lessons - From 2007 to 2011, Acadomia teacher: intensive internships (French, philosophy, methodology of high school work, orientation) - 2010: Educational consulting for Acadomia (creation of new services, analysis of teaching aids etc ...) OTHER 2018: Orthographic and syntactic corrections of the military history book "Les dragons, from the origins to 1918" by Nicolas Bretegnier and Eugène Lelièpvre, published by Epopée 2013: Orthographic and syntactic corrections of Claude-Louis Moreau's book on political philosophy "Réinvestir le politique", published by Éditions L'Harmattan, collection "contemporary issues". License of Modern Letter (AB Mention) obtained at the University of Provence in 2007 METHOD - Identification of the gaps: "anyway, I'm bad in French!" Alas, many students take their bad notes for a fatality, even for a personal judgment. They feel deprived and devalued. To return to success, it is essential to understand the reasons for the failure, and fill the gaps, little by little, but with determination! - Methodological approach of the disciplines: In French (or in philosophy), the student often thinks that there is nothing to do! The lack of working method is the first factor of failure unfortunately. Over the course of the course we will make sure to restore a working method conducive to success in the subject, and of course, we will focus on the methodology specific to each type of exercise requested (essay, comment etc.) - Content developed to develop the curiosity of the student and reconcile with the subject: without active collaboration of the student, the private lesson is vain. That's why it's important to stimulate it rather than force it to swallow. However, do not hide it from us: as in all subjects, there are boring steps (I feel a sincere compassion for high school students who are confronted with the learning and identification of text registers by example!) - Adapted and individualized teaching materials: this is one of the advantages of the private lesson! The teacher adapts and invents daily. I would not want to work myself with a support that I would have tired, anyway! - Method of work entirely based on the exchange and the putting in confidence of the pupil. The private lesson is a particular time of school life. It's not just "school after school". The pupil must face his shortcomings, must accept his errors as well as his weaknesses. In a teenager's life, it's like being laid bare. How could he do it if he does not trust the person in charge of helping him? As a teacher, I am always sincere with my students: I tell them their weaknesses, but I show them their strengths. I try to show them that a note, good or bad, is just a picture, an inventory of their knowledge of a particular subject at a given moment. It is part of my mission to show them that I do not judge them, and that I rely on facts (a copy, an exercise, a report card, etc.) to improve a situation that only requires improve! - Great experience of "Dys": over the years, word of mouth has made me more and more students "dys". Since labels are often sterile, I focus with them, as with others, on the essentials and try to distinguish between what is traditional and what is not. I would just say that the confidence and lack of judgment I mentioned above is more than crucial here! One thing is certain: a dys can do everything in French or in philosophy (and in general, in high school) despite the difficulties! Superior : Methodology of the dissertation, the structuring of a writing, the synthesis of documents, correction of memoirs and internship reports, preparation for various competitions (paramedics, business schools ...) - Follow-up of out-of-school students (medical reasons, precocity, free baccalaureate candidates, etc.)

Zoi
learn ancient and modern Greek
Holder of a degree in French Literature, and strong professional experience in Greek national education, I want to continue to progress and expand my knowledge. My experience for five years in primary schools in Greece taught me to be able to manage a volatile public, who seems always ready to ignite! I had the opportunity to find the best balance between my academic knowledge and my training in the practice of my profession. I allow myself to teach students with a wide range of abilities and needs. My main goal is to motivate my students, through the Net, games and fun exercises, to love what they study!
