Elcox alumni agree that online private tuition was the most powerful and effective element of their courses as it motivated, inspired, and led them to a proper use of English.
Online private tuition and home study supported with free reading materials and AV lectures affords a learning experience similar to study at the University of Oxford.
When you enrol for an English with Philosophy course, your customised guided study will refine your English as you weigh up controversial ideas and issues in today's world.
Home study requires close attention to prescribed reading and AV lectures in order to arrive at a balanced view that you can express in writing and discuss with your tutor.
You will choose an interesting topic for each study assignment and then work at your own pace until you are ready to write and argue for or against issues you have identified.
Your support materials, including an interactive online digital learning platform, should be more than enough, but were you to encounter a problem, your tutor will assist.
During an online tutorial, your tutor will discuss your written work for use of English, philosophical content, and writing style, and exchange ideas on the issues you have raised.
Philosophy is relevant to the workplace where critical reasoning and analysis can provide balance for troubleshooting, project management, policy decisions, and teamwork.
Philosophy scrutinises belief and opinion, society, the world, the limits and quality of knowledge, choice of moral values, exercise of free will, and our obligations to posterity.
Other questions ask about the possibility of democratic government, whether man is ultimately selfish, how the mind and body interact, and the nature of identity.
