One of the key ways I studied for both my A Levels and GCSEs was by learning the content myself and then teaching somebody else about it, whether that...

My name is Sam and I am currently studying Politics at Durham University. When I am not studying I enjoy playing football for my college and taking part in the college film society and I am a casual player of pool. I began a serious interest in political theories and history when I took Government and Politics as an A Level subject in Year 12. One of the key ways I studied for both my A Levels and GCSEs was by learning the content myself and then teaching somebody else about it, whether that be in a casual conversation or a revision session. As a result, studying Politics at university will allow me to help tutor you in something that I am passionate about and when you are passionate about something it becomes much easier to not only undertake but also enjoy.

Firstly we will look at the main areas you are finding difficult or you feel that you need more help with. Then we can begin to work on breaking down these areas into their key concepts so we can look at their roots in order to make the understanding of these concepts easier. This will often involve beginning looking at the famous definitions of these concepts and trying to understand exactly what this means and if there are any debates surrounding them, and why this is the case. This will allow us to fully understand the content of the course. There will also be a great deal of focus on not just the content but also how to structure answers to questions in detailed but succinct way. Furthermore, I will ask you to answer some questions so that we can then analyse the strengths and areas for improvement within your answers.
