Degree: Combined Honours in Economics and History (Bachelors) - Durham University
Hi, I'm Bertie, I am from Bolton and currently a student of Economics and History at Durham University. I am equally passionate about both subjects and I see tutoring as more than just drilling students for facts which can then be regurgitated in the exam room.
What can I offer you?
I would like my students to learn to be able to appreciate the ways of thinking which their subjects require in order to make their future studies easier to grasp and so that that they are not solely learning facts only to return to MyTutorWeb 12 months later because they don't have the skills to tackle different aspects of the subject. It is not possible to approach all areas of academia in the same blunt manner which has become clear to me through being resident in several departments during my degree.
I received a first in Economics in my first year and am able to pass on my knowledge of both the Microeconomic and Macroeconomic aspects of the subject for both AS and A2 in which I received a UMS of >95% as well as helping students enter the analytical Economics mindset. As much of economics is so mathematical I have a strong grasp of mathematics which I can pass on from basic arithmetic and the 11+ all the way to A2.
History is the other equally important element of my degree. Particular interests are based around modern history which are found as components of the GCSE and A-Level courses. These including Modern European History, late 19th to mid-20th century Germany and Russia and the History of Sports. History can often be very specific in the particular area it covers but how you approach history essays and the trademarks of good history writing are universal. Even if my knowledge does not cater to a certain specific area of study my experience can be applied to the approach one may have to make towards the study of the subject providing the student with the tools to learn and develop their own skills.
How would the sessions operate?
What I would cover in the session would be entirely up to the student. It could include helping with problem areas, covering topics in a lecture style (particularly in economics or a certain area of history), going through past paper exams or learning how to write an essay. The student has control over how they wish to use my time.

Goods can be classfied as either normal or inferior when we examine how a change in income of a consumer affects how much of agiven good they choose to consume.
In most circumstances one would expect that if income increased then because the consumer has more money in their pocket to spend they would increase consumption of the good in order to maximise their utility. This is what would happen if the good in question were a 'normal good'.
However, if the good is 'inferior' then an increase in income of the consumer would cause him or her to consume LESS of the good. The relationship between income and quantity demanded is negative. This is because certain goods are not valued as much by the consumer when their income rises. One such example is 'value' supermarket products. When income increases a consumer may wish to spend their money on higher quality produce because they can now afford it and in turn consume less of value produce.
If income rises, the quantity demanded of an inferior good falls. If income falls, the quantity demanded of an inferior good increases.see more
