About me

I am a second year Economics student, studying at University of Birmingham. At school I studied Economics, Maths and Biology for A levels and having enjoyed learning them, so I feel I will be able to enthusiastically teach these subjects and convey my passion to others. I am extremely understanding and approachable. I have had experience mentoring younger students so I can use these skills to make your sessions as productive and enjoyable as possible. As a child I had been to many tutors before so I know how tedious they can be, so I am here to make sure every session with me is enjoyable and fun. My sessions will be based primarily on topics you find hard, you tell me what you want to learn about, and I will find various ways to teach them to you, until we find a way you are comfortable with so you can fully understand the topic. Whether you are a visual learner or you prefer words and explanations, I will personalise every session to make sure you learn in the most convenient and entertaining way for you.  If you have any further questions you can always email me, and don’t forget to book your sessions with me as soon as possible! I look forward to meeting you and helping you begin your journey to greater success!

Questions Shona has answered

What factors can shift the supply curve and explain the impact of a change in one of these factors on the supply curve.

Different factors can shift the supply curve. It must be noted that changes in prices do not shift the supply curve, but causes a movement along the curve. In order to shift the curve, there must be changes in external factors that affect supply. 

Factors that can shift supply include: weather, cost of production, wages, government taxes/subsidies and  technology.

If the supply curve shifts to the right, there is an increase in supply and more is supplied at any given price. If the supply curve shifts to the left, there is a decrease in supply and less is supplied at any given price. 

For example if we consider favourable weather conditions, this will produce an increase in harvest for commodities such as wheat. This means there will be an increase in the supply, causing a shift to the right (outwards shift). At any given price more wheat can be supplied, therefore increasing quantity supplied.
