About me

Hi I'm Adam, welcome to my profile! I am a tutor for History, Government and Politics and Economics. I am currently a second year History student at the London School of Economics and Political Science. I'm always asked why History? My short answer is that it is intellectually stimulating and fun which learning should be!

Hi I'm Adam, welcome to my profile! I am a tutor for History, Government and Politics and Economics. I am currently a second year History student at the London School of Economics and Political Science. I'm always asked why History? My short answer is that it is intellectually stimulating and fun which learning should be! The longer answer is that, I have always viewed History as a practical subject as it is essentially the study of change something dictated by the past but equally relevant for the future. I am convinced History merits further study for its significance and scope; how can a collection of stories tie together communities, but also cause international disputes spanning decades? 

Although Politics is a continuation of History, I am intrigued by the transition from ‘current event’ to ‘historical event’ and the role of hindsight on source analysis. I am familiar with a variety of classical and modern economic concepts, which bolster my understanding of History from a theoretical perspective. 

Studying for GCSEs and A-Levels is a daunting prospect, you are constantly reminded these grades are for your future. Whilst this is true, it takes away the true essence of learning which is to become more knowledgeable and have fun whilst doing it. I hope that through my lessons I'll be able to further your knowledge so you are intellectually stimulated instead of learning for the sake of learning.

About my sessions

In preparation for any of my lessons be it in History, Government and Politics or Economics, I will first ask you beforehand if there are any topics you'd like to me to cover or maybe you didn't understand a specific concept during the week. If this is the case you can pop me a message and I shall prepare relevant resources on the topic in question. If there isn't anything specific you need to cover we will likely go through the specification taking topic by topic ensuring you are...

In preparation for any of my lessons be it in History, Government and Politics or Economics, I will first ask you beforehand if there are any topics you'd like to me to cover or maybe you didn't understand a specific concept during the week. If this is the case you can pop me a message and I shall prepare relevant resources on the topic in question. If there isn't anything specific you need to cover we will likely go through the specification taking topic by topic ensuring you are adequately prepared for your exam. Going through the topics provided in the specification is fundamental as it allows you to understand what the examiner is looking for in your answers and it definitely helped me achieve outstanding grades. I believe in repetition and so in the first few minutes of our lesson, we will quickly recap what you studied in the week before by playing a keywords game. I will then follow my lesson plan allowing adequate time to learn or go over concepts. I would like students to engage in the learning and whenever they need points clarifying, I encourage them to interrupt me. The remaining 15 minutes or more will be application of knowledge to exam questions and I can give feedback. If beneficial extra work can be given just so the student can continue practicing throughout the week and can be sent to me for marking.

Adam has been so helpful. Not only has he taught me to enjoy economics but it really makes sense now (I thought it never would!) and I feel confident with my answers. Can't thank him enough!
