Degree: Economics and Politics (Bachelors) - Durham University
Hi! I'm Connor, and currently studying second year economics and politics at Durham Univeristy. I have found economics to be very interesting topic, which helps us understand the way in which our economy and every day lives work. I'm hoping to help my students achieve a greater understanding in both microeconomics and macroeconomics, with the goal of sufficiently preparing them for their exam.
I am a twin, and have experience in tutoring my brother in subjects that he found more challenging, such as history and the microeconomic side of economics. This experience has taught me to be patient and different ways to explain diffuclt theories or concepts.
The seesions will be comfortbale and relaxed, to allow any questions to be asked without hesitation and to help encourage discussions on the topics. What is studied during the sessions will be chosen by the student, and he/she can highlight any area or particular question that is causing problems. Or students can send their essays, which i can then mark and go over ways to improve it in the session. Moreover, exam techinques and how to gain the most marks, can be further discussed by covering past papers.
What other subjects can i teach?
GCSE History- i can tutor history, although I will be of most value to students who are studying WJEC history and are studying any one of the following topics: Depression, war and recovery in Wales and England; the development of the USA 1919-2000, or anything to do with the early liberal reforms and the welfare state.
GCSE ART- I did A-level art and managed to achieve full marks in it. I can offer insight into how to gain the highest marks, by offering advice to students on different media, techinques, artist research and how to deploy their style. I will help by giving students targets to reach, and how to improve their work.
If you have any queries, dont be afraid to send me a 'webmail' or a 'meet my tutor session', and i will happily discuss and answer any questions or concerns.
Plus, dont forget to specify what diffculties you are having and what exam board you are studying with (so i can check the syllabus).
I looking forward to hearing your response and meeting you!
Thanks for taking the time to read.

Always begin answering questions by providing a definition. This is key in economics. Therefore, start by explaining that the national min. wage is the governments guarentee of a minimum wage per hour that is entitled to an adult over the age of 21.
Also key in economics. Diagrams. Therefore, following this definition, provide a diagram, showing the minimum wage's effect on the labour market.
-We must then notice this is a 'To What Extent' question, therefore candidates to give arguments for and against the question. I would reconmend beginning with FOR arugment.
1. Reduces poverty
2. Reduces income inequality
4.incentive to work, less strain on welfare & more tax revenues.
5.Worker may be more productive, due to happier working conditions. May also help stop anti-social behaviour.
next we will focus on the NMW being unbenefical for soceity
6. Raises prices for firms. lowers demand for workers, but increase supply (refer to diagram). Therefore to cut costs, jobs may be scarficed.
7. Firms may pass higher costs onto consumers (could include another diagram) Increases income equality, since is regressive. And may be inflationary. Can contradict this by noting the price elasticity of demand may not cause this.
8. Deters FDI, as labour costs are higher. could lead to outsourcing
9.Investment in machinery due to higher labour costs, long run unemployment
-Finally, make a very brief conclusionsee more
