About me

About Me:

I am a second year economics student at the University of Bristol. I have always enjoyed the challenging and logical nature of both maths and economics, a passion which I hope can be shared in tutorials.

I have previous experience as a volunteer tutor for a charity in London. During this period I taught maths to children of all ages. I had many students return to me rather than others each week due to my patience and strong communication skills.

At A-Level I achieved A*'s in Maths, Further Maths and Economics, the subjects I am hoping to tutor. Furthermore I have continued to study and develop my understanding of maths and economics since starting at Bristol.

The Sessions:

What is covered in the sessions will be decided by you. This is important as it means we will only do things you want/need to. 

I will use a number of different techniques (diagrams, examples, graphs, etc) in order to keep the sessions fun and interesting. In economics a number of real world examples will be used to help you grasp the more abstract concepts studied. I will also go through questions and past papers to help with exam technique. 

In maths I will begin by teaching the core points of a subject, then move on to questions and papers to help further understanding. 

What next?

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.

I look forward to meeting you!

What are negative externalities?

A negative externality is defined as the cost suffered by a third party (not involved in the transaction) as a result of the transaction. The consumer and producer are the two main parties in the transaction, but a third party is negatively effected by it taking place. An example of this can be water pollution from the production of chemicals leaking into a lake and killing fish, this would affect fishing in a lake. The fishermen in the lake are the third party who are negatively affected.

Negative externalities represent a type of market failure, as the the free market has not accounted for the full cost of the good. This means that the price set by the free market is below the true cost of the good. The negative externality is often called the 'social cost' of a good, and it is not taken into account in the free market price of a good. The true cost of the good is the social cost + the private cost.

In order to correct this market failure, governments can impose a tax on the good to raise the price. This will increase the price, so it is equal to the true cost of the good being produced. The tax can then be used to compensate the negatively affected party so they are no longer making a welfare loss as a result of the transaction taking place. Looking at the above example, the tax money can be paid to the fisherman in order to make up for the lost income as a result of the water pollution.
