About me

About me:

I am currently in my third year of an Economics degree at Newcastle University. I am very passionate about my subject and am Vice President of the Economics Society there, in addition to competing in various Business and Economics competitions successfully over the past 4 years and completing an Economics Internship in India. I'm also currently in the process of applying to Masters programs for Economics.

I am a friendly and approachable individual who is good at explaining complex concepts in a clear and simple way to others when they don't find them too straightforward. My tutoring experience has included aiding Sixth Form Students in Cambridge at Geography and Economics previously, in addition to tutoring 2 girls for the 11 plus. I am also currently mentoring first year Economics students, and have had some experience tutoring and advising them. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring and love helping people make progress and enjoy learning. I signed up to MyTutor during the last academic year and have helped many students achieve the highest grades.

 My Approach to Tutoring Sessions:

I am more than comfortable conducting each session to cater for each student’s individual needs, whether this may be: covering the syllabus, practising exam papers, specific Q&As or a bit of everything!

I am happy to focus on certain topics until students are confident they feel they truly understand them to the point where they could explain it to someone who doesn't know. 

I love Geography and Economics and thoroughly enjoyed studying them both at A Level. As a result I’m knowledgeable on the content and exam papers, and know the top tips that makes Examiners give those top marks!

Bhavesh (Parent) June 11 2016

Hi Grace, Kush got his results today and he got an A for Economics and got his place at Uni. Thank you very much for all your help and advice during the web lessons. I shall highly recommend you as a tutor should anyone want additional help with Economics. Thank you again, all the best for your course at Uni.

Kush (Student) June 11 2016

This tutorial was very helpful as Grace had previously looked through my attempted past paper questions. During the session, Grace pointed out areas where I could possibly improve my essays as well as additional evaluative points, which was very helpful. She also helped me to include more economic theories and construct conclusions to the essays to ensure that I am able to obtain top marks. All of the tutorials have been very beneficial and has helped to improve my economics grade.

Plan

Before beginning to write an essay, it is vital to write a plan. This won't have to take more than 5 minutes but helps you to write efficiently and with clarity. To do this, first read through the question carefully and pick out the key words within it. Then write a couple of brief bullet points on what ideas you'll mention within your essay. Then whilst writing your essay keeping looking back over your plan and your essay will stay on topic.

The best method of structuring an essay is to split it into 3 key parts: the introduction, body and conclusion.

Introduction

In the introduction it is best to first define all key definitions contained within the question (e.g. "Economic Growth"). You can then go on to mention any key facts about issue in question and why the question is relevant. 

Main Body

This should be divided into a paragraph per idea put forward to address the question. It is best to focus on 2-3 ideas you can explain fully instead of trying to rush more. It is also good to follow the structure of first presenting your idea, explaining it using economic terminology and then mentioning any issues or disadvantages with it. It is also vital in Economics when explaining your ideas to use diagrams if they are relevant as it is a fantastic way to show examiners you understand the economics behind it. It is also best to make them reasonably big (about 1/3 a page) and to give them a Figure number and title (e.g. Figure 2: The Effects of Increased Government Spending) in order to make it clear what you're showing in the diagram and making it easy to reference back to. Also when drawing the diagrams it is best to first do it in pencil so you're able to change any mistakes you make. 

Top Tip: it is invaluable to keep up to date with economics in the news and mentioning any relevant facts or figures you have seen in you essay. This shows you're going the extra mile with your studies.

Conclusion

In the conclusion, you can summarise your ideas argued in the body of the essay and come to a final thought on it. This is also a good place to mention any economic knowldge you know relative to this topic, although it is better to keep your conclusion relatively short but concise, in order to focus on the body of your essay where you can best demonstrate your learning.
