Private Lessons for Philosophy and Critical Thinking

I have recently graduated from the philosophy department of Bogazici University. I have a strong interest in teaching philosophy to children and adults.

My special interests are ethics and its history, metaethics, the history of modern philosophy, political philosophy and feminist philosophy.

This is for those aspiring to improve their knowledge of philosophy and its history. You can improve your reading and argumentation skills. You can learn how to do close-reading and discuss philosophically on the texts that we choose together in accordance with your level, needs and interests.

It is possible to work on your critical thinking skills and apply them to an area of your choice, such as sociology or have discussion-only sessions on your questions and topics. I also teach symbolic logic and informal logic for analyzing texts.


I also offer guidance and revision for writing papers or homeworks

About Me

I have just obtained my BA degree in philosophy from Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey. I wanted to take a break before doing my masters degree. Instead of delving into private sector or industry, I want to do something beneficial for me and others and make a living at the same time. I believe that dialogues and discussions are essential to taking more critical perspectives to matters. It is also required for teaching and learning philosophy and its history. I do not want to throw on students a cluster of information. Instead, I would like to encourage my students to have a firm grasp of the topic and come up with their own ideas in a clear and cogent way. Furthermore, it is important that students become more skilled in discussing about certain topics and arguing for their own positions in a range of fields other than philosophy.

I aim to design my classes with students appropriate for their level, needs and interests.

My special interests are ethics (esp. Kantian ethics) and its history, the history of modern philosophy (from Descartes to Kant), political philosophy and feminist philosophy.
Although my education was mainly in analytic philosophy, I also took elective courses in continental philosophy. I would also be happy to include those figures in our discussions :)

I really loved her methodology in teaching. I think Berke can help any person in learning the language as she has the sense of language and can deal with all personalities...
Hello, My name is Berke. I hold a BA in Philosophy from Bogazici University. I have had experience in teaching Turkish to foreigners since the beginning of my university years in Istanbul, Turkey. I have realized both from my life-long experience in learning a foreign language and teaching Turkish to foreigners that exposing yourself to a new language is the best way for learning and speaking a language. Seeing that having conversations are really helpful for having an intutive grasp of Turkish, I put a special emphasis on learning grammar and vocabulary with conversations. In our Turkish Speaking Sessions, you will learn the right ways to express yourself in Turkish by paying attention to vocabulary and grammar usages and mistakes. It is possible to design session plans f you need to learn and speak Turkish for a specific area of interest, such as business, or for a need like presentation or exams. I am willing to share pdf versions all the essential text and audio Turkish learning materials with my students.

Adrienne
Support courses in French, English and Philosophy
I give classes in literary subjects up to the final level. After 3 years of studies in the preparatory class for the grandes écoles in a Parisian high school, I obtained an under-qualification at the Ecole Normale Supérieure with excellent grades in the subjects mentioned above. I also got a degree in philosophy. Accustomed to being with children (I have been an au pair for a year), I think I have the drive and seriousness to deliver quality classes.

Justyna
University classes (psychology, philosophy, pedagogy, linguistics)
I graduated from the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy and linguistics. What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy, linguistics. - Psychology (developmental / school / clinical / social) - Philosophy (mainly ancient philosophy, e.g. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) - Linguistics / phonology / grammar / syntax During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps/diagrams to show connections between ideas, etc. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding.

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.)

Homework Help / Further Education - From Primary to High School
As a student of International Law, I followed a literary course that allowed me to deepen my knowledge of literature, philosophy and the command of English. I am just as inclined to do a simple homework help for the youngest than a French bac preparation or philosophy for the older ones. Do not hesitate to contact me, whether for a single methodology course or a deepening of a subject. Possibility of courses by Skype.
