About me

Hi there! My name's Jess, and I'm a second year Economics and Politics student at the University of York. I love my degree - these two subjects always feel so fresh and relevant, and there's always something new to learn and explore. In my spare time, I'm a keen member of the Model United Nations society at York, and love the opportunity to put what I learn in my degree into practice through debates.

I've always found exam period a very stressful time and know exactly what it's like to feel nervous or unsure of your abilities before sitting an exam. I believe that the best way to tackle exam stress is to make sure you have a really good understanding of the concepts behind the questions you'll be asked to solve, so whatever the exam throws at you, even if it's a type of question you haven't seen before, you know you've got the best possible shot at answering the question.

About my sessions

Before each session, I'll ask what topic you'd like to look at, or if there's a specific problem set you're struggling with. I'll then look over what you've sent me and put together a lesson plan to help you really get to grips with this topic. I believe that for any topic that you're struggling with it's best to go back to the basics, to make sure you have a really strong understanding of the theory behind the methods so you can apply them to increasingly chal...

Before each session, I'll ask what topic you'd like to look at, or if there's a specific problem set you're struggling with. I'll then look over what you've sent me and put together a lesson plan to help you really get to grips with this topic. I believe that for any topic that you're struggling with it's best to go back to the basics, to make sure you have a really strong understanding of the theory behind the methods so you can apply them to increasingly challenging questions. I'll then walk through some more challenging examples with you, and then you'll solve some questions yourself. At the end of each session we'll recap and I'll suggest some further problems for you to tackle before our next lesson.


I believe that the best way to encourage learning is by promoting a positive approach. My focus will always be on commending students for their improvements, to encourage them to work hard and improve in even more areas. I'll let students attempt questions themselves and think through problems on their own, rather than walking them through each step every time. You have to make mistakes in order to improve, and by practising and making those mistakes now you'll be able to solve those questions perfectly come the exam.
