Teaching

I have a bunch of teaching jobs at the moment. I mentor undergraduate students in physics, privately tutor math, physics, and philosophy one-to-one, co-teach debating, co-organize a reading group on disagreement, and teach philosophy in schools with The Philosophy Foundation.

I am available for one-to-one tutoring in math, physics, and philosophy. If you live in London, then we can agree on a place to meet. If not, then Skype does a pretty good job as well — at least when it comes to philosophy. Drop me a line at henrik.tutor@gmail.com if you want help with any of these subjects.

Studies

In addition to my teaching jobs, I am an undergraduate student at King’s College London, where I am studying for an MSci in Physics & Philosophy — which works out to about half and half physics and philosophy.

My main interests in philosophy are epistemology, ethics, and meta-philosophy — which is to say: questioning the very project of philosophy itself, in all its incarnations.

My interest in physics is focused on the ability of science to explain the world — how concepts like time, entropy, locality, and measurement can give us an understanding of how the world works (or: whether they do in fact give us anything like an understanding).

About me

I grew up in Stavanger — a small town on the west coast of Norway. It’s pretty cold and wet up there, but it’s a beautiful and serene. When I was 19, I moved to Berkeley to study physics. It didn’t take me long to discover that the laboratory and I would never quite get along — and least not as well as I get along with theory. Around the same time I was re-introduced to philosophy, which I fell in love with. On top of that, I faced the unfortunate fate of a declining exchange rate, making my loan in my home currency worth very little in US dollars. So, after a year at UC Berkeley, I moved to London — the place I now call home — to do both physics and philosophy at the same time.
