Philosophy & RS
Philosophy and religious studies are so much more than a subject. It is the way of living well.
What we offer:
1-to-1 Philosophy & RS classes
Our 1-to-1 Philosophy & RS courses offer an excellent opportunity to work scientifically with a tutor who is sufficient experienced in teaching the subject. It is less challenging to gain an understanding of the range of scientific ideas pupils are expected to learn when they can bounce questions off our tutor.
Home-schooling or group Philosophy & RS classes
Group classes enable peer-assisted learning and allow your child to observe what their peers know and how they learn. Group classes also inspire discussions and healthy debates that can further increase pupils’ interest in the subject.
Philosophy & RS crash courses
Think your child can revise Philosophy & RS content before moving to the next level? Is your child eager to get a head-start on the content they will be learning when they move to the next key stage? A crash course is exactly what your child needs to gain confidence or familiarity, depending on their current position.
Philosophy and Religious Studies helps you understand other disciplines.
Learning philosophy is important for understanding other disciplines. The nature and concept of a discipline are generally philosophical in nature. For instance, the philosophy of science is necessary to understand natural and social science that is based on scientific work. If you need to understand humanities, you need to understand the philosophy of history and the philosophy of literature. Since all disciplines employ reasoning and have specific standards for evidence and logic, philosophy has a general bearing on all disciplines.
It can unlock numerous career opportunities.
Philosophy teaches children to consider the big questions in life. It also teaches them to analyse and communicate their ideas logically. These are skills that are sought at every workplace.
Philosophy graduates can find career opportunities in numerous fields, both public and private. From publishing, journalism, media, non-profits, teaching, advertising, computers, and IT, several fields offer career opportunities to philosophy graduates.
Learning philosophy helps you construct sound arguments, distinguish fine differences between views, present ideas convincingly, and write clearly and persuasively. All these skills are the most sought-after, and employers are always looking for workers with these skill sets.

Who is it for?
Children are natural philosophers, which is why they are always interested in the “why” of everything. For many, when we think of philosophy, we think of it as a subject that is probably taught at the university level. However, philosophy and religious studies are so much more than a subject. It is the way of living well.
Online Super Tutors teaches philosophy and religious studies to children, helping them see the world around them with a new perspective. It enhances critical thinking, and critical thinking skills are not only valued in education but highly valued in society as well.
Why should children learn philosophy?
Philosophy is an important subject for developing students’ knowledge and understanding in the diverse and multicultural world that we live in. Learning philosophy can help develop key skills for life and learning beyond education.
Here’s why children should learn philosophy.
It develops problem-solving skills.
Studying philosophy enhances a child’s problem-solving abilities. It helps children analyze definitions, concepts, problems, and arguments. It enhances their capacity to organize issues and ideas, deal with questions of value, and glean important knowledge from a large amount of information.
It helps children to distinguish fine and subtle differences between views and discover common ground between people of opposing positions. It also helps them synthesize various views into one unified whole.
It enhances caring and creative thinking skills.
Philosophy encourages children to be caring and think creatively. Teaching philosophy could be as simple as having simple discussions on real-life situations or simple stories about truth, morality, friendship, racism, and more. Learning philosophy can help students become autonomous thinkers and make them question themselves in a more civilized manner. Philosophy encourages children to understand the thoughts, feelings, and actions of themselves and others.
It improves communication skills.
Philosophy can contribute significantly to the development of expressive and communicative powers. It provides children with the basic tools of self-expression. They learn to present their views through well-constructed systematic arguments, which is not easy to learn otherwise.
Learning philosophy helps children express what’s different about their views and improves their ability to explain different material. It also improves communication skills because it eliminates vagueness and ambiguities in our writing and speech.
It teaches critical thinking.
Philosophy aims to improve critical thinking in children by encouraging caring and collaborative thinking. It encourages you to think outside your normal thought patterns. When you encounter a problem, you try and solve it in ways that are familiar to you. However, learning philosophy will help children think outside their comfort zone, which will help improve critical thinking skills.
It enhances your persuasive powers.
Philosophy can help train children in constructing good arguments and appropriate examples. Doing so helps them become more convincing and persuasive. They learn to build and defend their views and also learn to appreciate opposing views. Learning to assert why you consider your own views preferable can be a great skill that’s useful in the workplace.
It improves your writing skills.
Learning philosophy can teach children interpretive writing because it encourages the examination of challenging texts. Children learn comparative writing, which allows them to show how alternative positions are fair. They also learn argumentative writing that helps them establish their own views. Philosophy also encourages originality as children are urged to use their imagination to develop their own views and ideas.
