Degree: BSc Politics and International Relations (Bachelors) - Exeter University
I am a second-year student at Exeter University. For several years now, I have been passionate about politics; past and present. My main aim from tutoring is to generate that passion for my tutees as well.
I am a social and interactive guy. I enjoy talking and meeting new people and I will bring that enthusiasm to every one of our sessions.
My main aims to achieve from these sessions are, most importantly, to make you confident and concise on the topics that were struggles before, but also to make the topics fun or at least, slightly interesting.
I will strive to make the sessions as varied as possible, with a range of learning methods, such as diagrams, essays and the occasional lecture (not too many though).
Other ways of helping
In addition to Politics, History, and Geography, I can also help with Personal Statements for university entry and also CV's for part time jobs to help you along!
If you have any questions, send me an email through the site on "Web-Mail" or book a free session.
I look forward to meeting you!

There has been much debate over whether Nikita Khrushchev, leader of the USSR from 1953 to 1964, genuinely believed in peaceful coexistence in the years 1955-1962. On the one hand, there is a belief that Khrushchev’s eagerness to improve diplomatic relations with the USA showed that he was committed, whilst others believe his aggressive tactics in situations proved that he only wanted to implement peaceful coexistence when it suited him. It is clear that Khrushchev was genuinely committed to peaceful coexistence, with the increased summits and conferences, as well as the construction of the Berlin Wall evidence that he was resigned to being equal in power to America.see more
One way the Parliament can check the Commission’s power is through Question Hour on the President of the Commission. This allows the MEPs to query the Commission’s actions on key issues such as the environment and can be seen as a form of direct accountability. However, the effectiveness of Question Hour has been questioned, with low turnout and the questions being known before the session, with the questions being asked one at a time undermines the checking of power as the President can merely dodge the question, knowing that the MEPs won’t be able to scrutinise further. In addition, the media interest is low, meaning the President’s views are not made public and there is little pressure to expand on the views, further diminishing the ability of the Parliament to check the Commission.see more
