About me

Hi! I'm Laura, a third year student studying Economics at the University of Durham. Economics is a fascinating subject, particularly as almost every theory you learn can be seen in the real world! However, I also know that it can be a very challenging subject, particularly if you are studying it for the first time.

The beauty of one-to-one tutoring is the tailoring of lesson content to each individual compared to in school. To make the most of this, my sessions are driven by students, with a focus on the areas they want to work on most. Throughout, we will apply each theory/concept to past exam questions, in order to develop exam technique and make going into exams a little bit easier!

Tutorial Structure

The structure of each tutorial is flexible and can be determined by the student, depending on what suits them best. However, there will be a focus on ensuring that all the fundamental concepts are understood first- getting the basics right is often overlooked but is vital to do well in exams! Alongside this, exam technique will be focused on, looking at how to apply the knowledge learned to real exam questions. The aim is that over the course of the sessions, each student will improve in both knowledge and confidence, making going into exams much less daunting.


Will There Be Homework?

There will not be any mandatory work between sessions; however, I may ask a student to prepare by reading or looking at a past paper question from time to time. This is to make sure we get the most out of each and every session.

I will also provide suggestions of other resources on each topic if a student wants to dive deeper into a particular topic- e.g. videos, websites, books etc.

I cannot begin to describe how grateful I am for Laura's hard work and excellent tutoring skills. My child was lacking confidence in his subject and in a very short time that changed. She's a great mix of personable, witty, conscientious and she has a positive, upbeat outlook to learning. A**! I know that my son has gone into his exams as well prepared as he could possibly be with her excellent tips on exam technique and brushing up on topics. We will not hesitate to use her services again.
