About me

Hi there! I'm Matt, and I have a great passion for helping people to improve! I have already worked as a Tutor for 9 months at a different company, before joining my Tutor, and so I have plenty of experience in teaching. I'm very sporty and have also worked as a cricket coach over a number of summers, which has only improved my tutoring. The reason why I have chosen these subjects to tutor is simply because they are the ones I enjoy the most (and am the best at), as I took these them to A level. I'm currently studying Economics and Politics and university and am loving the course because it can help me gain a better understanding of what is happening on the news, and form my own opinions, instead of simply taking the words of others for granted.

 

I'd love to help my students improve as there is little more

satisfying than being responsible for someone achieving their 'Eureka' moment

and suddenly understanding something they didn't before. Furthermore, the

reason why I enjoy this role so much is the interaction with students. This

creates a far more interesting and engaging environment than a regular office

or retail job, which means I can be motivated to provide great lessons. I hope

to provide my students with the best teaching possible!

About my sessions

I will always maximize the lesson time, and tailor each session to the students’ wishes, because ultimately, I’m only here to help the student. Having said this, I will try and stick to the rough guide below.

 

At the start, I will spend a few minutes recapping what was covered last time, so I can check if the student has absorbed the information from before. Next, I will explain the concept that the student was struggling with, and try to clearly articulate it in a way they understand. To do this I'll use the whiteboard tool, and walk through examples. After this, I'll go through another example with the student, but this time he/she explains the concept back to me, so they prove they have understood. To really embed the concept, I'll set the student some practice questions to solve themselves, and only ask me for help once they're stuck. To finish then, I'll go over what we discussed in the session, and suggest where we can progress.

 

As I outlined at the start, this is only a rough guide and the needs and desires of the student are obviously most important! During each session, I'll always point out what a student is doing well, and where they can improve. Constructive praise is equally important as constructive criticism, and this is the best way of learning. I will also keep track of the progress a student makes, by recording what we cover in each session, so hopefully, we can see vast improvement!

Questions Matt has answered

Explain how the central bank can change interest rates to manipulate Aggregate Demand.

The key concept here is that interest rates essentially represent the price of money. The central bank sets the interest rate to loan to high-street banks, and the high-street banks follow this guidance to set the price for customers. A bank will pay a saver a percentage of the amount they have in an account as a reward for saving with them. This percentage is the interest rate. Equally, if a firm would like to borrow money from the bank, the interest represents by how much more than the original loan the bank expects in payment. This can then affect both investment and consumption.This affects Consumption as savers earn a reward for saving, and so if the interest rate is relatively high, they are encouraged to keep their money in the bank, and earn more from it, month on month. If interest rates are lowered however, the incentive to save becomes smaller, and so households will be encouraged to spend instead, as there is a weaker reason to save. Spending is the same as Consumption, and so as interest is lowered, spending (consumption) increases, and as Consumption is component of Aggregate Demand, AD will increase in the short run.NB- The central bank wants to avoid the liquidity trap, where the interest rate is so low, the impact of reducing it further is minimal.Investment is affected in reverse. If the interest rates rise, it becomes more expensive for them to take out a loan, as they will have to pay back more. Consequently, they are less likely to invest, as the cost to them will be greater. Conversely, a lowering of interest rates means that it is cheaper and so more firms could afford to take out a loan, which in turn they will invest. Therefore, as Investment is also a component of Aggregate Demand, a lowering of interest by the central bank will result in increased investment and, following this, an increase in AD.The key concept here is that interest rates essentially represent the price of money.

Find x and y by solving the equations stimulateously

1: 3x+2y=82: 2x-5y=18Firstly, we need to cancel out one of x or y. To do this we need to reach the same coefficient of one, and then we can cancel by taking one equation away from the other. First we need to multiply the equations so that the same coefficients are reached.1*2 = 6x+4y=16 - now equation 32*3 = 6x-15y=54 - now equation 4Now we can take 3 away from 4.-19y=38To find y, we divide both sides by -19, to equal -2.Therefore, y=-2We now substitute y=-2 into either equation 1 or 2 to find x.3x+2(-2)=83x-4=83x=12x=4Therefore, y=-2, x=4We can then check this is correct by substituting both of these values into the other of equation 1 or 2.1: 3x+2y=82: 2x-5y=18Firstly, we need to cancel out one of x or y.
