About

As a philosophical jack-of-all-trades I want to contribute to a world in which everybody is capable of thinking well about the fundamental issues that matter to them. I want to make this contribution through teaching philosophy and critical thinking skills, and through having conversations with people in which I help them zoom in on their most basic questions. Being a licensed teacher of philosophy, a logician and someone with experience teaching high school pupils, students and adults, I know what works in teaching philosophy and critical thinking skills, both on a theoretical and on a practical level. Therefore courses created and taught by me are consistently evaluated as good, relevant and interesting. I like to be creative in my teaching methods, using games or computer applications to enhance learning experiences. For example, I have designed simulations in which children had to convince their virtual parents or rethink the basic structure of our society. Also I am a fan by experience of using graphical mapping software to teach reasoning. For I created and evaluated a method to develop critical thinking skills in high school children using a computer programme, Belvedere, to map arguments. My evaluation showed that using (computerised) graphical aids made learning deeper, easier and more fun. This got me hooked on doing things digitally. Finally, through my training as a philosophical practitioner, through philosophical reflection on this profession and through the application of all my knowledge of the basic question in life I know how to the bottom of an issue quickly and effectively. Therefore I can be an asset to anyone in need of an experienced and motivated teacher of philosophy or the skills of apt thought and to individuals we want philosophical counselling.
