About me

I am currently an undergraduate student studying Geography at Newcastle University. I have a strong passion for all things Geography and for all exam types! I am a friendly character, who is patient and hard working, and firmly believes that every student deserves to achieve the highest grade possible. I will build a strong connection with the student and adapt to their learning ability and type to gain the best grade possible for them. I have a strong belief that every student can achieve a high grade, if they put the hard work into their aim. I will guide and help them on this journey. I have had experience with teaching and tutoring through work experience at numerous primary schools. I also offer tutoring with the Extended Project Qualification. This is something that I am very passionate about, and would happily act as a student's supervisor or any other additional help that they require! My EPQ was Geography based, but if the student requires essay advice or any other form of help for their project, I can adapt to this! I have recently made a 'Top Tips' help sheet which I can supply to the student. What next? If you would like more information or have any questions, just send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! Remember to tell me the exam board and qualification that you are struggling with. I look forward to meeting you!

About my sessions

My firm belief for one-on-one tutoring is that the student will guide the tutorials. This means that the student will list what they would like to gain from the tutorials, for instance content help or exam technique, and I will structure the sessions around these. In Geography, it is vital that the underlying theories, both in physical and human Geography, are covered in depth and understood before moving onto the case studies which Geography is known for throughout the GCSE and A Level courses. I have had a wealth of experience tutoring all exam boards, so I know what the examiner is after. Each students learns differently and I will adapt to the learning technique which best suits the student in question. This way, they are able to gain as much as possible from the sessions! Most importantly, the sessions will be fun, interactive and engaging!

My son achieved an A in Humanities in his 13+ exams with Josie's continuous support in Geography. She provided not just revision help but exam techniques which helped him through a subject that he found most difficult. She has been dedicated throughout the whole experience - an excellent teacher!!

Questions Josie has answered

What is the Development Gap and why is it growing?

The development gap emphasises the divide between the affluent and those in poverty. This is usually called the North-South Divide, between the first world countries and the third world countries. This gap stemmed from the African nations debt in the 1970s, which has now either been cancelled or reduced considerably, in order for the nations to put their economics into the country. This was a scheme set up by the IMF which is called SAPs (Structural Adjustment Programmes). 

The reason why it is growing is due to the skewed economic and political ideologies of the west, with the superpower of the USA being dominant in large global organisations, such as the IMF (International Monetary Fund), which was set up in order to bridge the development gap. With the USA being dominant within the IMF and the WTO (World Trade Organisation), few bills are passed in order to help the developing world. 

Furthermore, trade is bias, with farmers in the developing world being paid far less for their goods than those in the development world. A good example of this is the cotton trade, which is subsidised in America but not across the continent of Africa, therefore making it harder for farmers to grow the mad product that America produces. 

Moreover, aid can hinder the development of the country if given inefficiently. For instance, long term aid of food and shelter to a developing or war torn country, can in fact prevent the population from developing their country and providing an income through farming and other practices. Furthermore, this can be the case with economic aid. A country may become reliant on the aid from a developed country in order for themselves to become developed. But this could encounter problems such as the developing country not building up their own economic structure and support system, and relying on other countries. This can be risky, as the developed country has performed soft power on the developing country. In addition, large infrastructural projects can be a form of aid, which has been seen in many African nations by China, even spreading to Brazil which China funding a new rail path to connect the ports, and even in our own country with the new nuclear power plant in the early stages of planning. This soft power increases the development gap as the developed country exercising this power will become more affluent and more powerful. 

The UN set out their Millennium Development Goals which have just been revised into Sustainable Development Goals, which enable the progress to be maintained and kept at a high standard. 

With the continued strength of the superpowers, and the skewed attitude towards the west, the development gap is set to continue to stay, or even rise. Trade, aid and economics are key into bridging the development gap, and if these can be made fair, then there is a step towards bridging the gap.
