Degree: BA Economics and Politics (Bachelors) - Exeter University
I am an Economics and Politics student at the University of Exeter. I have always found these subjects fascinating due to how applicable they are to every day life and hope that my tutorials will instill that belief in you too.
I am very patient and friendly. I have been teaching tennis since I was 14, so have a lot of experience teaching, with people as young as 3 years old and as old as 78! I have even gone abroad to the USA twice now to teach kids over the summer. Whilst I was in Sixth Form I also did a bit of Economics tutoring as part of my role as a House Captain to help students in my house achieve their best.
During the sessions, you will guide what we cover. As social sciences, both Economics and Politics require a strong theoretical foundation, so before we do exam questions, we will focus on this.
I will use as many different ways (diagrams, words, analogies) as possible to explain a concept, until you are confident enough that you can explain it to me (or anyone else... I hope your parents are ready to listen!)
I hope the sessions will be fun! A lot can be achieved in 55mins especially if it is made enjoyable - learning Economics and Politics is extremley satisfying as you can suddenly understand the news that is going on around you!
Personal statements... Can you help me?!
Yes! I have been through the process myself and helped others with their personal statements so I know how arduous it can be! I also went through the Oxford application process, which is very different and I can shed light on all parts of the submission, including the interviews! I also studied English up to International Baccalaureate level so I can help with correct grammar, puncutation and spelling as well as your overall structure and content. I can help you to express yourself in a unique way, which will help you to stand out.
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.
I look forward to meeting you!

A movement along the demand curve is caused by a change in price only. If price decreases, quantity increases and demand is said to have extended or expanded. If price increases, quantity decreases and demand is said to have contracted. The price of the good changing does not shift the curve, you just slide up and down the demand curve. A shift of the demand curve will be caused by a change in any factor other than price and a new curve is to be drawn. The easiest way to remember the factors that shift the curve is to use PIRATES:
- Interest Rates - if interest rates decrease, the quantity demanded increases as consumers can afford to borrow to buy more.
- Real Disposable Income - if income after tax and inflation increases then consumers tend to spend more.
- Tastes and Fashions
- Expectations - if consumers expect prices to fall they might reduce current consumption.
