About me

Determined, Enthusiastic, Successful. Hello, my name is Tom and I read PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) at Warwick, achieving A*A*A at A level in Maths, Economics and Biology respectively. I can't recall a time where i have not been fascinated by current affairs and life's big questions.

I am a very keen footballer who plays to high competitve levels, as well as enjoying playing tennis and being part of a Musical Theatre group, which has given me the confidence to speak in front of large groups and handle nervous situations.

At school I ran economics revision sessions for GCSE and A level students, which involved one to one tutoring, helping to hone my teaching skills and allowing me to establish strong relationships with students.

Lesson Overview

Since I am offering Economics tutoring, I aim to combine micro and macroeconomic theory with real world applications, to give my students an intellectually stimulating and rewarding lesson. Examiners love students who read around their subject and always award them top marks!

Lessons will involve lots of diagram work to demonstrate economic theories and essay plans to ensure A and A* grades are achieved. 

I believe that students play as big a role as teachers in the learning process so I ask students a lot of questions to ensure they have a grasp of concepts we cover. One to one lessons really allow me to build up a rapport and understand which study methods work for each individual student.

Outside of the classroom

The best students are those who go beyond the syllabus and read around their subjects. I have a plethora of resource materials to draw upon, should we choose to work together. 

Following lessons we will have a short feeback session in which we can identify which areas both teacher and students should look at in the run up to the next lesson.

Getting in touch

If, as I hope you like the sound of me and want an enthusiastic, stimulating tutor, please email me with information about your course and available times.

I look forward to working with you,

Tom Westgarth

This depends on a multitude of factors and is tricky to answer.

One of the ways in which a higher NMW, which the latest government is implementing, would reduce inequality, is simply because it raises wages of those in lower income families. This increases their disposable income and therefore their standard of living should rise.

However, this is not always the case; for two main reasons. The first of which is that around 40% of those on the NMW are secondary earners of richer households! Therefore money is not being efficirntly transferred from high earners to low earners.

Additionally, classical economists would argue that a wage floor leads to higher unemployment levels, as the cost of labour rises so firms will cut back on labour to lower costs. Therefore this would worsen the situation.

The answer to this question also depends upon the effects on productivity

Economic growth is defined as an increase in the productive potential of an economy. It is measured in percentage growth of GDP (Gross Domestic Product), year on year. India's rate of economic growth is 7.1% in 2016 Q1.

Growth can lead to higher living standards because if GDP rises, there is more money in the domestic economy. This means that business can make more profits, and therefore can pay employees higher wages, or even hire more employees. This means that GDP per capita/ household rises. Therefore the disposable income of workers rises. This means that they can purchase more goods and services with their income, leading to a rise in living standards.
