About me

My Academic Record

I have just graduated from Cambridge University where received a 2.1 grade in Politics, Psychology and Sociology. At A-level I received 4A* grades in Geography, English Literature, Economics and DT.

My wide-ranging expertise means I can offer tutoring in a number of subjects and levels, including Geography, Economics, English, DT, Business Studies, Sociology, Psychology and Politics.

My Approach to Tutoring

I believe a student is most likely to excel if they enjoy what they are studying. The teachers who in my life have inspired me to succeed are those who have made me fall in love with a subject; those who have made me feel like I am learning for me: not for them, my parents, or anyone else.

I aim to apply what I have experienced in Cambridge to my tutoring, and ensure that a personal, supportive relationship is established with a student.

My Tutoring Experience

I have tutored multiple students in Geography, Economics and English Literature at A-level and GCSE, both online and face to face.

The Sessions

Let me know exactly what it is you're struggling with (or, if you're not struggling with anything and just want to get ahead, where you'd like to start!) and I will help build your understanding using simple steps and clear explanation. Once you've demonstrated you understand a concept, I'll show you how to apply it by breaking down mark schemes, and we can start combining it with real-life examples to woo the exam boards and nail the top marks. It'll be great.

Adrian, was very helpful helping with A-level English literature. He gave detailed responses to any queries and provided quick message responses.The meeting sessions were worth the money, and I was able to gain more insight into my subject and learn useful writing skills.

Questions Adrian has answered

In 'Othello', how does Shakespeare suggest that Iago has built a reputation for being trustworthy?

Throughout the play, characters appear to trust Iago. But why might this be the case when, we, as an audience, know he his far from a trustworthy character? There are perhaps three key reasons why characters trust Iago to begin with: 1. Iago maintains the façade that he is “honest” by seeming...

Throughout the play, characters appear to trust Iago. But why might this be the case when, we, as an audience, know he his far from a trustworthy character? There are perhaps three key reasons why characters trust Iago to begin with:

1. Iago maintains the façade that he is “honest” by seeming to be a plain speaker, i.e. someone who says what he feels and thinks. We have evidence for this in the open language which Iago uses in his first speech. Here, he tells Roderigo that he follows Othello “to serve my turn upon him”. Roderigo is likely to trust a man who appears to be so open about his motives and desires.

2. Iago is in a position of authority and therefore trust. He is a soldier and serves a valiant general. We are likely to have preconceptions of people in these kinds of positions, and to an extent assume them to be trustworthy. Perhaps even if Roderigo were a “plain speaker” we would be less likely to be manipulated by him, as he is not in a particularly honourable position.

3. He gets others to do his 'dirty work', and distances himself from his evil. He makes his “fool” his “purse” and in the process constructs a tool for manipulation which keeps him self at a distance from his evil.

What is price elasticity of demand, and how can it affect the decisions of retailers?

Price Elasticity of Demand refers to the extent to which demand for a product will change in response to a change in its price. If PED is 'elastic' this means that any given change in price will result in a more than proportionate change in demand. If PED is 'inelastic' this means that any gi...

Price Elasticity of Demand refers to the extent to which demand for a product will change in response to a change in its price.

If PED is 'elastic' this means that any given change in price will result in a more than proportionate change in demand.

If PED is 'inelastic' this means that any given change in price will result in a less than proportionate change in demand.

For example, let's say a retailer changes the price of oranges, from £1 to £1.50. As a result, the demand for oranges over the next week falls from 1000 to 850.

We can calculate that the change in price has been 50% (50/100 x 100 = 50) and that change in demand, in response to this, has been (-)15% (150/1000 x 100 = 15). The percentage change in demand has thus been smaller than the percentage change in price, meaning we can describe the PED of oranges, in this case, as inelastic.

Indeed, we can work out the 'coefficient' for elasticity using the formula '% change in demand / % change in price'. So, demand has changed by 15%, and price by 50%: 15/50= 0.3. Any figure less than 1 represents an inelastic PED; a figure equal to 1 represents unit elasticity (changes in demand are equal to changes in price); a figure greater than 1 represents an elastic PED.

How, then, might the PED of a product affect the decisions of a retailer? Let's take the example of our oranges. We saw that oranges had an 'inelastic' PED, which meant an increase in price was met with a less than proportionate decrease in demand.

At £1 each, the retailer sold 1000 oranges, making £1000 in return.

At £1.50 each, the retailer sold 850 oranges, and this makes £1275 in return.

Therefore, we can say that if a product appears to have an inelastic PED, it makes sense to increase the price, as this will result in a greater return, and vice versa.

An air mass is a large body of air that has similar temperature and humidity levels. The UK is affected by two 'tropical' air-masses: tropical-continental and tropical-maritime. The tropical-continental air mass begins in northern Africa and southern Europe; it brings warm, dry conditions to the UK during summer. The tropical-maritime air mass begins in the south Atlantic and the Azores; as it has to travel across the Atlantic ocean it picks up a large amount of moisture, and thus brings warm, moist, unsettled and often cloudy conditions to the UK in both summer and winter.
