I'm a student of Geography and Politics at Glasgow Univeristy. I have always loved Geography and believe that studying it is like studying for a degree in interesting conversations :)
My experience in tutoring also includes Biology, French and English as a foreign language to students at my international school and at a local youth centre.
As a tutor I am calm and generally focused, maintaining the belief that learning should be fun. IB Geography especially provides enough space for students to find interesting learning resources, rather than just learning case studies from one textbook by heart. Therefore it is important to me to know what kind of a learning style suits you best.
I did the IB Diploma programme but can also provide tutoring in subjects listed below at GCSE level. Feel free to contact me for any IB specific questions as well - Internal assessments for language B, Extended essay advice, IB specific exam preparation, etc.
I know how frustrating it can be in the IB at certain stages - facing all the deadlines at once, trying to tackle revision while applying to universities and getting all CAS hours in... things tend to pile up. My main advice is to remain calm and organised, approaching things systematically. Ask for help when you need it and remember what my Geography teacher kept telling us; it's a marathon, not a sprint :)

Thomas Malthus is the author of the Malthusian theory; the view that suggests that the global population is increasing exponentially, while global resource production and extraction are only increasing arithmetically. Hence he sugests that there is a point where the Earth's resources will not be able to support the ever growing population.
Boserup's view contrasts it. She suggests that the population itself is a resource. Humans have the means and knowledge to overcome the lack of resources by inventing new ways of resource extraction and production. In support of this view are new ways of food production; fertilizers, food technology, modified crops, new technologies to find oil reserves.This increases the Earth's carrying capacity (even though points of crisis may be encountered on the way).see more
