About me

Hi! I am a third year student living and studying in London. LSE’s PPE course is unusual, in that it is much more mathematically rigorous than most similar courses, but its enormous breadth means you learn in tremendous detail about how different aspects of society work. In that way, economics brings politics to life and starts to analyse, not just describe, why people make certain decisions. I am also a founder of the LSE Quiz Club, and currently Vice President of LSE's Debate Society. T...

Hi! I am a third year student living and studying in London. LSE’s PPE course is unusual, in that it is much more mathematically rigorous than most similar courses, but its enormous breadth means you learn in tremendous detail about how different aspects of society work. In that way, economics brings politics to life and starts to analyse, not just describe, why people make certain decisions. I am also a founder of the LSE Quiz Club, and currently Vice President of LSE's Debate Society. This not only means that I have had the chance to develop my ability to communicate sophisticated ideas, but it also means I spend lots of time teaching debating to younger students. I also have experience privately tutoring the clarinet and gave regular Maths A Level tutoring to a family friend.

At school, I always preferred exams to coursework – I loved having the opportunity to plan my revision independently and have everything I needed to know out in front of me. I knew for a long time that I wanted to go to LSE, which was nice as it meant I could set a clear target for myself. Nevertheless, the UCAS process can be very stressful, so by working hard and keeping to a plan it made the exam period feel refreshingly straightforward.

About my sessions

The best kind of teaching is constructive, in that each lesson builds on the last, and repetitive, so that you are constantly learning and re-learning important skills. On that basis, I’m happy to spend lots of time on a simple but important idea, and to use exam skills from the very start. Not only does this make for rigorous and focused learning, but it stops each aspect from feeling detached and instead contributes to a bigger whole.

The best kind of teaching is constructive, in that each lesson builds on the last, and repetitive, so that you are constantly learning and re-learning important skills. On that basis, I’m happy to spend lots of time on a simple but important idea, and to use exam skills from the very start. Not only does this make for rigorous and focused learning, but it stops each aspect from feeling detached and instead contributes to a bigger whole.

The best-structured lessons I have received often begin with a brief refresher of past material, and possibly an exercise if any material was missed in the previous session. From there, the bulk of the session will be discussing and explaining a few key concepts, in the process answering the student's questions, and doing related exercises if applicable. Finally, sessions will finish either with a related exam exercise or, for written courses, a discussion of how you might approach a short or long written answer.

The main reason I like exams, I think, is the ability to immerse yourself in a subject – you can start from the very beginning and not miss anything out. When revising I took immersion quite literally, covering my walls in post-it notes and writing myself quizzes, all of which I would encourage (and are much better when done with others). But I never had the opportunity to get excited about a course with someone else, which I think tutoring uniquely offers.
