Degree: International Relations with Proficiency in Spanish (Bachelors) - Exeter University
I am a final year International Relations student at the University of Exeter and I have also studied Spanish as part of my degree. I have always enjoyed studying politics and history and hope I could pass some of this enjoyment on through my tutorials.
I am very patient and friendy, and recognise how important it is to adapt each tutorial to the needs of an individual student. I've worked with disabled students at my university for the past year, helping them with their academics and settling in to university life. I think this job in particular has helped me learn how to work patiently with others.
As I've already mentioned I think it is very important to adapt tutorials for each student depending on what they are most uncertain about. I think problems that most students have either fall into not understanding the content, or having difficulty with exam and essay technique. Depending on where a student is struggling will set the tone for my tutorial sessions, but at the same time it's always useful to have a mix of things to look at to keep the sessions enjoyable. Most importantly it is up to the student to guide the session, choosing what we cover.
I aim to tackle problems from as many different angles as possible, as students will have different ways of approaching issues. I believe that this helps students the most in overcoming problems, and hopefully should make the tutorials fun and interesting.
Feel free to contact me through the website either with a message or a free meeting. Make sure to let me know what areas you're struggling with and your exam board so I can best help.
I look forward to meeting you!

The principal disagreement among liberals is between negative and positive freedom. Classical liberals believe in negative freedom. This is viewed as the absence of external restrictions on the individual, allowing freedom of choice. The key idea si that the individual is 'free from' constraints to do as they wish. State intervention should therefore be minimal.
In contrast, modern liberals believe in positive freedom. They disagree with the unfairness created by negative freedom, particularly towards those who are disadvantaged. Instead freedom for modern liberals should reflect the freedom to achieve your true potential, the idea that you should be 'free to' do things. Social disadvantages (such as poverty, diesase, lack of education) are seen as the main threats to personal freedom. The state is therefore a potentially useful body with both a positive and empowering role to help individuals achieve their potential.
There are similarities between both sides however, as both believe that the state can interfere with freedom. Modern liberals differ becuase they see those who are disadvantaged as unable to achieve true freedom in the classical liberal sense, and so build upon negative freeom to create an idea that gives freedom for all. Beyond overcoming social disadvantages, however, the state should take a small role in society, similar to the classical liberal stance. Furthermore, both sets of liberals do not support absolute freedom. They share a belief that people should enjoy the maximum amount of freedom possible as long a this does not infringe on the freedom of others.see more
