About me

My name is Sithara and I am a Philosophy, Politics & Economics Student at Durham University and previously did the IB.  I am an international student from Germany, but I have been to international schools for 4 years and to Australia, so I grew up biligual. I have come to greatly appreciate languages and the study thereof, as I lived in Albania and Greece (though I only speak little). 

Apart from languages I love economics/business studies (Philosophy and Politics) - that is why I decided to continue studying it in university, which I enjoy greatly! It explains how our society and daily life works, so I hope to further encourage and spark interest for this field of study! 

My Experience:

I have been tutoring since I was 14, first teaching German to foreign primary school children, and later on teaching English as well as Maths to middle school students.

The Sessions:

You decide what we cover in the sessions: It may be you have a gap somewhere in your understanding of a topic - then we will work out what the problem is and talk through it again using different texts/explanations, examples, diagrams or mind maps. But that really depends on how YOU learn best. We may also look at past exam papers and examine different methods on how to approach such questions and how to best answer them.

If you have any questions or concerns, please send me a message and I am happy to answer them!

Happy studying :)

Yaron (Student) August 3 2016

I have now completed 16 IB Econ tutorials with Sithara, and I am wowed beyond words at the kind, care and skill of Sithara as a tutor. In her description she writes that she has been tutoring since she was 14, and believe me, it shows. She is brilliant at her work, going through concepts with ease and explaining things in a way that makes sense to her students. If you don’t understand, not only does she repeat her explanation, but she attempts to explain the same concept in a different manner, and will persist until she is certain that you have understood. Her high scores are reflected in her teaching style; it’s obvious that she is very knowledgable aboutthe material she is teaching. Not only is she familiar with the material in terms of her own understanding, but she is able to consistently effectively communicate her knowledge to her students. This, no doubt, comes from her extensive experiences in tutoring; she “gets” how people understand things. She is dedicated, prepares for each lesson to ensure that she is familiar with the content and how to teach it, and will gladly look through work you have done for her and provide feedback, even outside of the tutorial setting. I can’t speak for her familiarity with the content of her other offered lessons as I only took Econ, but I can speak for the manner in which she teaches, and the best way to do that is in a personal way, not in one based on a description of Sithara. Think of the most capable teacher you have ever had; we’ve all had that teacher who taught us things so quickly and efficiently we couldn’t believe class was over. Now imagine having that teacher be able to meet with you one on one. This is the experience I’ve had with Sithara.

 Ein Beispiel:
Im Juli habe ich eine gute Freundin in Frankfurt besucht. Wir kennen uns schon seit ein paar Jahren und haben immer viel Spaß zusammen. Wir waren im Schwimmbad, auf Straßenfesten und haben gegrillt. 
Danach bin ich mit meinen Großeltern nach Schweden gefahren. Das war ganz schön lange - 10 Stunden! Aber zum Glück hatten wir zwischen durch eine Pause, als wir auf der Fähre waren. In Süd-Schweden haben wir Elche gesehen und waren angeln. Ich durfte sogar das Boot steuern. Alles in allem war es sehr entspannt und ich hatte eine schöne Zeit.

Why does the government have to take the multiplier effect into account?

The multiplier effect occurs within the circular flow of money, more precisely when people earn income and spend a proportion of what they have earned. When the government invests in infrastructure (for example roads) then construction workers earn money. They in turn spend it on goods and services they may not have bought, if they had less money to spend/were unemployed. Through this spending everyone from bakers to car manufacturers or restaurants may earn more (or at least the businesses where those people work in do). Hence the money the government inject into the economy may multiply and the results seen in the economy (measured by GDP for example) may be far greater than the investment from the government.
The government will need to take this into account, because it could reduce their spending and thus interests and debt the government has to pay back. (Also crowding out may be reduced, but that is another topic)
