About me

I am a student at the University of Bristol, studying Geography, with a passion to help others around me to achieve as highly as they can. Geography has always been my favourite subject, because I found that it has the ideal balance of maths, essay skills and scientific knowledge for me. However, I love learning so this has not held me back from enjoying other subjects, such as my A level subjects. I know taking exams is stressful and revision is strenuous, and some of us need a bit of extra help with understanding things. Sometimes when things are explained to you by a completely different person, in a new style of teaching you can suddenly grasp those key concepts that you have been pondering for the last few weeks. Having been tutored myself, I completely understand the benefits it can bring and the different ways of learning which seem to work well. I have a sister, two years younger than me, who I have tutored now and then as she has been growing up, so I understand that the best approach when tutoring is having patience, most importantly, but also revisiting concepts all of the time, to ensure they stay fresh in your mind. I am hard working, keen to always try my best, and from GCSE through to A level I have continually been a straight A student. When revising, for me, mind maps and flashcards seem to work best, but I have plenty of other revision techniques to help students to achieve their full potential.

About my sessions

I believe that thoroughly planning the session beforehand is key to assuring that I am able to tailor the tutoring session suitably to my student. I have copious notes which I have made myself when revising for exams, for all of the subjects I have listed, meaning I have all of the relevant information available. In order to help achieve goals, I believe it is necessary to fully decide with the student what they feel they would like to cover, whether this is practise questions, vocabulary or simply revising key concepts. I will measure progress by looking at how well a student responds to the questions I ask relevant to the subject, to gauge whether or not their understanding seems to have improved, and if not then this is an area to be covered again. Through these steps, I believe any students I tutor will be able to unlock their full potential.

Questions Lucy has answered

Why do some countries remain 'switched-off' to globalisation?

Some locations are 'switched-off' to globalisation, this means that they have not allowed the processes of globalisation, such as trade, open door policies, TNCs and foreign direct investment, to take place. This may be due to location or political factors. Landlocked countries often tend to be less involved in trading and investment, due to the fact that trading is more difficult as there is a lack of access to the sea and ports, where the majority of worldwide trade takes place. This means TNCs do not set up in these countries. In Africa, for example, 16 countries are landlocked, and many of these are therefore 'switched-off' to globalisation'. Furthermore, many of the people in Africa do not have much disposable income, so TNCs would not benefit from investing, because there are not sufficient markets to buy their products.Another cause may be due to politics and governance. North Korea is an example of a country which is 'switched-off' to globalisation, this is because it is run by a dictatorship which allows citizens limited access to the outside world. For example, North Korean citizens are not allowed access to many Western websites, such as Facebook and Google. Some governments try to protect their country from globalisation. For example, China is partially 'switched-off' to globalisation, since it has a strict quota on the number of foreign films that can be shown per year. Moreover, in France 40% of all films shown must be screened in French language, this aims to protect the French film industry from globalisation. These two countries are not entirely 'switched-off', however these are attempts made by the government to curveball some of the negative effects of globalisation on their economy.Some locations are 'switched-off' to globalisation, this means that they have not allowed the processes of globalisation, such as trade, open door policies, TNCs and foreign direct investment, to take place.
