I am in my final year of a BSc in Philosophy and Politics, discovering that the world is a lot more complicated than I had first presumed! In Philosophy, I am particularly interested in the mind and the artificial intelligence. In Politics, I focus my work on political understanding and democracy.
The thing that I enjoy most about my course is that I have the opportunity to explore a large variety of other areas of knowledge when answering questions in my fields, from psychology and mathematical logic, to literature and analogies.This interdisciplinary approach is something I think is invaluable in appreciating the world around me.
My main hobbies are painting and writing and, as such, I respect the importance of a creative outlet and the role creativity can play in education.
My Approach to Tutoring
Since the age of 16, I have been involved in tutoring. Whilst in sixth form, I provided support to new students in need of additional support learning to read. Since being at university, I have volunteered tutoring local students in GCSE Mathematics and English.
I feel as though these experiences have taught me that each student learns in a different way. With this in mind, I place importance upon discussing how you learn best, so that I can describe, support, and discuss content in the best way possible. As a tutor, my focus will be on your understanding and I will be willing to adapt my approach as much as is necessary.
I hope that we can work together to enhance your understanding and to understand how different topics relate to one another. I aim to provide a tutoring service that helps you pass exams, whilst expanding your understanding of interconnected ideas beyond the syllabus,

As 25 markers need to be written in less than half an hour in the exam, getting all of your ideas down quickly is important.
Because of this, it is well worth taking 5 minutes to plan your essay. This plan does not by any means need to be neat. You just need to ensure you have covered a few key areas in your plan (which you can then scribble out once you've written the essay!). Make sure you understand what the question means. Often, questions in the exam will be a reworded version of a question you have come across before, so don't be intimidated if you don't understand it at first. Beyond this, your plan might just be notes of key ideas you want to include in the exam, which you can tick off as you write the essay.
In terms of the essay's content, aim for 3-4 key points and make sure you discuss both sides of the argument. It helps to think of the essay as a discussion between two people who disagree on the topic. After you've written what person A might say, think about what person B might reply.
In addition to making sure your argument is balanced and critical, you need to ensure you include relevant examples from contemporary politics to illustrate your point. Your examples might be facts you've learnt in lessons, or they could be something you heard on the news. It is always worth thinking about recent news stories if you find yourself stuck for examples, as the politics exam will aim to be contemporary and relevant to the real world of politics.see more
