About me

Hi, I'm Alex!

I'm currently studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford university. The reason I chose this course is because it combines so many of the aspects of my A-Level subjects that I really enjoyed; whether that be allowing me to carry on with Economics, use Maths in more technical aspects of Economics and Politics, or put my problem solving skills, that Chemistry taught me, to the test.

Hi, I'm Alex!

I'm currently studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford university. The reason I chose this course is because it combines so many of the aspects of my A-Level subjects that I really enjoyed; whether that be allowing me to carry on with Economics, use Maths in more technical aspects of Economics and Politics, or put my problem solving skills, that Chemistry taught me, to the test.

When I was mentoring some students in GCSE and A-Level Economics, they remarked on how clear I was in explaining concepts, and how I went through topics in a logical, comprehensive way. This, and the great feeling I got from noticeably seeing their grades improve, led me to set up an account at MyTutor; hopefully I can make a difference to even more students!

About my sessions

For my online lessons, I'll ask that students inform me beforehand of a topic they'd like to go through. I'll brush up on it beforehand, and then go through the topic in a broad sense, giving a brief overview.


I'll then ask the student if there are any particular areas within this topic that they didn't understand, or struggled with. I'll then go in depth and explain this particular area in more detail, and ensure the student can then understand what...

For my online lessons, I'll ask that students inform me beforehand of a topic they'd like to go through. I'll brush up on it beforehand, and then go through the topic in a broad sense, giving a brief overview.


I'll then ask the student if there are any particular areas within this topic that they didn't understand, or struggled with. I'll then go in depth and explain this particular area in more detail, and ensure the student can then understand what they found difficult before,


I'll then relate this broad topic back to the specification of the course; I'll discuss with the student the types of questions the exam board are likely to ask based on what the specification requires of the student. If we have time, we'll go through a few practice questions together.


Finally, I might set the student a practice question to attempt themselves, that we can go through in the next session.

Alex taught my son for A level Economics prior to his end of first year tests. Alex is a very good tutor, knows his material and offered material that enabled my son to feel confident about essay writing. Additionally Alex is very friendly and accommodating and when my son needs his help again we won’t hestitate to contact him.
