About me

Hi! My name is Sofia and I'm an Economics and History student at Edinburgh University. If you need any help with Maths, Economics, or your Personal Statement, I can help!

I have plenty of tutoring experience in these areas, having helped students of varying levels progress with a subject. I am patient and more than happy to explain a concept as many times as you need so you can understand it fully. Let me know if you want to focus on a single/a couple of problem areas, or if you would just like to improve your overall reach in a subject, so that our sessions can be the most beneficial to you. If you have any questions, feel free to get in contact.

About my sessions

I always come prepared to a tutoring session. Having a plan allows me to structure the lesson in a way which flows nicely, rather than jumping from question to question randomly. I do a lot of research before meeting with my students, making sure I know the exact exam board for their subject and looking up the syllabus as well as checking past papers so I can tailor my sessions to targeting specific points. I also find that practising past paper questions is one of the best ways to prepare a student for an exam, as by increasing their familiarity with the types of questions asked in exams, they feel more confident when sitting down for the real thing. Finally, I always listen to what the student would like to focus on, and ensure that I incorporate this into the session so they feel like what we are doing is useful.

Questions Sofia has answered

Define price elasticity of demand and explain the factors affecting it

Price elasticity of demand (PED) is a measure of the % change in demand of a good which occurs in response to a change in price.There are four main factors which effect PED:availability of substitutes - if a good has many close substitutes, PED is very high. That is to say that a small increase in price would result in a large decrease in the amount of the good demanded.share of total expenditure - if the proportion of a consumer's income taken up by the good is very large, PED will also be large. Whereas if the good takes up a relatively small portion of a person's income, an increase in price will not be as noticeable and so the quantity demanded is unlikely to fall by a lot.time period - in the Short Run, PED is very inelastic, but in the Long Run, as consumers have time to adjust their tastes/ switch to cheaper substitutes/ go to another shop, PED becomes more elasticthe nature of the good - if a good is a necessity, PED will be inelastic, but if it is a luxury, PED will be more elastic.Price elasticity of demand (PED) is a measure of the % change in demand of a good which occurs in response to a change in price.There are four main factors which effect PED:availability of substitutes - if a good has many close substitutes, PED is very high.
