About me

Hi! I’m Josh. I’m currently studying Economics and Politics at the University of Manchester. 


I’m obsessed with all things politics and as well as having an A in politics at A-Level, I was awarded a subject award in politics by the Principal of my sixth-form college.

Hi! I’m Josh. I’m currently studying Economics and Politics at the University of Manchester. 


I’m obsessed with all things politics and as well as having an A in politics at A-Level, I was awarded a subject award in politics by the Principal of my sixth-form college. 


During politics classes, I would always get involved in debates, discussions and peer conversations. I really engaged with the subject of politics and it sparked my academic interest more widely. 


Politics can be a daunting subject, but during these turbulent times, there really hasn’t been a more interesting time to study it. You can easily switch on the news and apply what you learn in your politics lessons to real life!


When I’m not studying and watching the news I love to listen to music and attend concerts. I also like to read widely, particularly around media or economics. 


If you have any other questions, I’d be more than happy to answer them. Just drop me a message and I will get back to you as soon as soon as possible!

My lessons will always be flexible, adaptable and suited to however a student learns best.


Students can request content they want me to go over and I will ensure that this content is taught in the context of vital exams and backed up through the use of real-life examples. 


As exciting as it might be learning about how our political system works, it is essential students know how to tackle exams and are able to identify what the examiner is looking for when awarding top grades! I will always refer back to exam technique, including how to set out answers and structure paragraphs and also how to analyse and evaluate key concepts. I will also go through exam board specifications and examiners reports with students as these contain vital instructions, tips and advice. 


I believe that images and case studies are essential to retaining important information, students are more likely to remember something and find it more interesting if they can see how it applies to the real world. In addition, I will recommend articles and news videos to students and try and make sure they are keeping up to date with the latest news, further allowing them to apply their knowledge appropriately and relate key political themes and concepts to the real world.
