About me

I studied BSc Politics and International Relations for my undergraduate degree at the University of Bath, graduating with a first class honours in 2016. I am currently reading MPhil Modern Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Oxford, St Antony's College, in my first of two years of study. Having studied a wide array of modules spanning British politics, international relations, global development, history, sociology, political philosophy and regional studies, I find that an interdisciplinary approach to understanding and explaining political phenomena is of most importance. I have previously mentored students for politics, maths and English literature, so I am familiar with what works and what doesn't work! I mentored several students throughout university, and now as a Masters student, I am confident that I can pass on years of knowledge and experience! Finally, I believe in fully learning the content and subject of study, and also, learning the specific ways in which to tackle an essay or exam question to score you the best marks.

About my sessions

Each session will be guided by what you would like us to cover. In our first session, we will go through the expectations you have of me as a tutor, what exam board you are with, and, if you like, we can set targets for a timeframe and schedule that you are happy with. Our sessions will be fun, interactive, and detailed, using a range of methods that suit you, such as coloured tables, visual links, worksheets and interactive media. I hope to leave you confident and able to explain concepts and theories back to me, and to your teacher and exam paper! I focus on learning subject content for the exam, as well as strategies to tackling exam papers and specific ways in which different types of questions should be answered. What next? Please send me a 'WebMail' if you have any questions, or go ahead and book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'. From there we can begin our tutoring sessions. I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Marral has answered

What is a democracy?

Democracy is a system of government where the majority of a population elects representatives to govern the country. It literally means 'rule of the people', stemming from the Greek work 'demos' which means people.

In a democracy, the elected representatives, (in other words, the government which is voted in) gain legitimacy by securing the vote of the majority.

Five defining characteristics are generally regarded as symbolising a democracy. These are:

1. Elected representatives - representatives of government are elected by the people.
2. Elections are held to elect those representatives - these must be fair, transparent and according to state law.
3. Civil liberties - this includes freedoms and rights which citizens are entitled to have such as the freedoms of expression, speech, and political participation.
4. Rule of law - the law must see all citizens as equal. No one is above the law.
5. An organised opposition - this is an important characteristic of democracy as it ensures the freedom of opposing parties to criticise any wrong policies of the current government.

The majority of democracies around the world that meet these criteria are therefore regarded as liberal democracies. An example of this is the UK. On the contrary, an illiberal democracy is one in which some of these criteria are met but where the real power of citizens are curtailed, since they may lack civil liberties and freedoms. An example of this is Hungary.
