About me

As a politics student I am interested in how society works whether its domestic politics or international. My current dissertation research project is on rituals and ceremonies in the UK's Parliament which is particularly relevant for those studying A-level politics as the specification covers British politics quite closely. I also studied abroad for a year to learn about French politics in Paris and I am very interested in the current politics surrounding Brexit and the EU. I achieved 97% in my Politics A Level and have continued to achieve high 2:1s and firsts in my undergraduate degree. My friends would call me a politics nerd as I like spending time watching BBC Parliament and find any excuse to be in Parliament myself, whether undertaking internships in Portcullis House or attending debates in the chambers.


Beyond politics I am also tutoring in English Literature and the Extended Project Qualification. As an essay based subject I have continued to hone my English skills throughout my politics degree and also took a course on controversial literature at Sciences Po Paris in my third year of university. I am currently researching my dissertation and am confident I can assist with research for the EPQ.

About my sessions

I like to tailor lessons to individual student needs and match that to specifications rather than the other way round. If your goal is to pass an English Literature GCSE but you don't enjoy the poems your school has chosen, I will teach you how to analyse poems and extract information from poems you do enjoy and we can then work on applying that to the texts necessary for the course. If this isn't your style I am happy to work as close to the specification as you wish, that is just one example of how I work.


In a free video meeting I like to ascertain what the goals of the student are, how often they would like tutoring as well as any written work reviews they would like. We can then set some goals for the next lesson together and work on exactly the right content.

Questions Jasmine has answered

Does the UK need a codified constitution?

As one of the oldest Parliaments in the world, the UK Parliament has a few quirks to it which more modern institutions lack. One of perhaps the most intriguing is the lack of a codified, or written and solidified, constitution. Instead the UK constitution is drawn from a variety of sources of which only some are written, such as legislation and works of constitutional authority like Erskine May. Others are more ambiguous, in Parliament constitutional authority is often derived from tradition and what is considered in keeping with past decisions. It speaks to the 'if it's not broken don't fix it' adage and for centuries has served Britain well. The constitution has become a major debate once more given the changes that will occur as we withdraw from the UK. It is therefore a very relevant debate to anyone studying politics at the moment. The reason an uncodified constitution is complicating our transition from the EU is because there is no single authoritative document to guide us as actually many of our traditions and pieces of legislation are based on our membership of the EU. Codifying the constitution has always struck scholars as an impossible task, however Brexit presents us with the ideal time to present our ideas of what a British constitution would look like written down. Whilst having an unwritten constitution will not prevent us from leaving Europe, it would certainly simplify the process for life after the EU. This is one of the arguments to suggest that the UK does need a codified constitution.As one of the oldest Parliaments in the world, the UK Parliament has a few quirks to it which more modern institutions lack.
