About me

I’m studying Politics at university. I love politics because it is so present in our everyday life – today’s news could be an example in an essay I write tomorrow! I loved studying French, Politics and Geography at A-Level and I still pursue my love of languages outside of my classes. At school I was involved in debating and the school council. Now I am a member of the Politics Society and Amnesty International. I did some mentoring at school and I found it really rewarding, so if you want support at GCSE or A-Level, I’d be happy to help!

About my sessions

With Politics, discussion is really important, but some students might feel that they don’t get an opportunity to talk in a large class. With one-to-one tutoring you will have plenty of opportunity to discuss and ask questions. I will be patient, so please ask if you’re struggling with anything – even the most basic concept! There really is no such thing as a silly question! With geography, I’ll make use of the whiteboard if you want help with diagrams. I’m personally a visual learner so I’ve always found diagrams and coloured notes the best way to learn, but I’ll adapt my style to suit your needs. With French, speaking is key; either the basic pronunciations at GCSE level or if you’d like to practise A-Level conversation. I can also help with grammar and how to revise for literature exams.

Questions Dakota has answered

How do waterfalls form?

Waterfalls form where a river is flowing over hard rock lying on soft rock. The soft rock is eroded faster, so there is a step in the river which deepens over time. It is eroded by hydraulic action and abrasion until there is a plunge pool at the base of the waterfall. Undercutting forms an overhanging of hard rock, which is unsupported underneath. This collapses into the plunge pool. This continues resulting in the waterfall retreating upstream.When answering a question on waterfalls, you may be required to give an example of a waterfall.A diagram would be very helpful for explaining how waterfalls form.Waterfalls form where a river is flowing over hard rock lying on soft rock.

What are the possessive adjectives in French?

The possessive adjectives in French indicate that something belongs to someone. For example: my pen, her house, our school.In French they are as follows:My: mon, ma, mesYour (singular): ton, ta, tesHis/Her/Its: son, sa, sesOur: notre, notre, nosYour (plural): votre, votre, vosTheir: leur, leur, leursFor example: mon stylo, sa maison, notre écoleTo decide which one to use, you look at the gender and number of the noun you are describing. For example, you use mon for stylo because stylo is masculine and singular. If I wanted to say "my pens", I would use mes stylos. The gender you choose matches the noun you are describing (the pens, the house, the school etc) and NOT the person to whom the pens, house, school etc belong. For example, Her house - sa maisonHis house - sa maisonHouse is a feminine noun so will take the feminine possessive adjective.The possessive adjectives in French indicate that something belongs to someone.

What are the problems associated with tourism?

Tourism can cause environmental damage. This may include building on habitats, soil erosion, overusing resources such as water, the pollution of coastal waters, air pollution from traffic and litter. Tourism also has social consequences. This can include poor employment that is seasonal, lowly paid and has long and anti-social hours (such as working in restaurants). The local culture and heritage may be eroded by the influx of tourists, for example, the local language may decrease in use, traditional architecture may be replaced and local cuisine may be replaced by food favoured by tourists. Overcrowded resorts may also attract anti-social behaviour. Before answering a question on this you should check how many marks it is worth to see how many problems you should discuss. It is also important to note whether or not the question has a resource attached to it. If it does, you must consult the resource, but you may also be required to use facts and figures from your own knowledge. The problems of tourism could feature in an essay question requiring you to discuss your case study. You should be very familiar with the facts and figures in your case study.Tourism can cause environmental damage.
