About me

About me:

My name is Ellie, and I’m studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Oxford. I’m really passionate about my subjects and I want to share this with you! 

I have plenty of experience teaching and motivating people through the 4 years I spent working with young people as a volunteer Scout Leader. I also have plenty of experience helping younger students with homework, exam preparation and and university applications, meaning I’m confident in my ability to help students achieve their best! 

The Tutorials:

My tutorials will be focussed, fun and relaxed. Mostly we’ll talk through problems you’re having or questions you want to ask about areas you feel less confident in. 

My job is to help you realise your full potential. The means as well as cementing your understanding, we will also talk through exam techniques, answers and strategy, to make sure when you get into the exam there’s nothing stopping you from getting great results.

Applying to University? 

Can I help you? Yes!  I’m really familiar with the whole process of applying to University, especially if you’re applying to Oxbridge or Russell Group Universities. I can advise on personal statements and EPQs and have lots of experience with tacking the Oxford TSA entrance exam and Oxford interviews

I’m also familiar with the stresses and worries of important exams and university applications, so I make sure I’m really approachable and patient so you can relax and feel confident in your own abilities to handle these situations. 

What next?

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a free 'Meet the Tutor Session’ so we can discuss how I can help. Don’t forget to tell me your subjects and exam boards! 

I look forward to meeting you!

What is compatibilism?

Compatibilism, in the context of philosophy, is the belief that humans can have both free will and determined actions. To understand compatibilism, it is important to first understand the two arguments it brings together; determinism andfree will

Free will is easy to understand; it is simply the idea that, as humans, we have the ability to make independent and free decisions

Determinism however, is the philsophical argument that nothing can happen without being caused to happen. Just as a pen will not move unless something makes it move, determinists argue that people can never make a decision without that decision being influenced by their past experinces. Thus, according to this theory, all our actions are determined by our thought processes in making the decison, which are formed entirely by our pasts. Thus, if we knew enough about a persons past, character, and thought processes, we could predict all of their decisions. And if all of our decisions are determined, how can we ever act freely? 

This is where compatibilism comes in; compatibilists like Hume (probably the most famous compatibilist philosopher) argue that just because our actions are predictable, does not mean they are not free. By challenging the defintion of freedom as we assume it to be, compatibilists argue we can exist freely within a determined universe. This is because, as Hume argues, freedom does not mean the ability to make decisions independently of our pasts, but the ability to make decisions without these decisions being forced upon us. Simply because our actions are predictable, because of our individual thought processes and experiences shaping the way we make decisions, does not mean that we are forced to make these decisions. Thus, compatilists argue, although our actions and decisions are determined, we still act freely. 

Once you understand these themes the best way to answer a question on this topic would be to outline the concepts, then discuss how they link together through compatibilism. Then you can make your own decision on what to conclude in the essay; is is possible to argue all three sides! Remember when making your argument to discuss why your decision is a response to the other arguments, not just stating what you think. Don't forget this is a hard topic, so if you understand the concepts and can evaluate them in an exam, you'll do well.

Why might the equilibrium market price of a good change?

The equilibruim market price of a good is simply the price that the good will sell at in a free market. This can be worked out using the supply and demand  curves for the consumers and producers of the good; these 'curves' (which actually are ususally straight lines) represent the quantity that...

The equilibruim market price of a good is simply the price that the good will sell at in a free market. This can be worked out using the supply and demand curves for the consumers and producers of the good; these 'curves' (which actually are ususally straight lines) represent the quantity that producers are willing to sell, and consumers are willing to buy, if the price of this good is a certain level. A supply and demand graph plots these two curves on the same axes, and the equilibruim levels of price and quantity (the levels that will come about in a completely free market) can be found by reading the levels of the graphs axes where the supply and demand curves cross.

Thus, for the equilibruim market price of a good to change, the point at which the supply and demand curves intersect must move to a diferent place on the price axis (usually the y-axis). There are many reasons this could happen, all depending on the factors that influence the supply and demand curves. One of these reasons could be the introduction of a similar product into the market that consumers prefer, especially if this product is cheaper. This would make consumers less willing to buy the good we are analysing, and so the demand curve would be shifted downwards. This is because for a certain price, consumers would be willing to buy fewer of the good than before, as they now know there is a better deal elsewhere. 

Now the demand curve has been shifted downwards, the point at which the supply and demand curves cross has also been shifted downrwards. This means that the equilibruim market price of the good will be decreased.

There are many other reasons for the equilibruim market price, and quantity, of a good to change. If you want to get a better undertsanding of these ideas, or of how to answer a question like this in an exam, why not try brainstorming some other reasons for the supply or demand curves to shift, and writing a response!
