About me

Hi, I’m Zaynah and I’m a second year Economist at the University of Birmingham. Economics can seem daunting and complicated at first but I’ve found that once a student understands the core principles of the subject, everything else falls into place. At college I was a peer mentor and so tutored fellow students. I also completed an A Level in History and achieved an A* so I am familiar with the course content and understand what examiners are looking for. I am looking to tutor students in a relaxed, friendly environment and help them prepare for their exams.

About my sessions

Firstly, we will go through the content the student does not understand. After each topic we will go through past paper questions and the mark schemes. After a few sessions, we will spend about 5-10 minutes on a mini quiz about the previous topics we have already discussed to make sure the student fully understands them.

Clear and concise description on what was asked for. Relatively flexible with whatever I wanted to go through and was able to provide visual description as well as past-paper questions to further an understanding of the topic described.

She prepared really well and gave me past paper questions to go through with her. So, I understood better with her going through it with me.

Questions Zaynah has answered

Describe how diminishing marginal returns affect a firm's average cost.

Diminishing marginal returns is a situation where the addition of one unit of a variable input increases output by less than the addition of the previous unit (i.e. declining marginal physical product).  A delivery company with 5 vans and 5 workers can make 100 deliveries. The addition of a sixth worker may increase output to 120 deliveries as the sixth worker can make deliveries in the other workers' breaks. The addition of a seventh worker might only increase output to 125 deliveries as capital is a limiting factor (there is no van for the seventh worker to drive). The sixth worker has a MPP of 20 deliveries whilst the seventh has a MPP of 5 - diminishing marginal returns.  If each driver is paid £100, we can see how this affects average cost. 5 workers each being paid £100 is £500, divided by 100 deliveries is £5 per delivery. 6 workers each being paid £100 is £600, divided by 120 is also £5. When diminishing marginal returns set in, 7 workers each being paid £100 is £700, divided by 125 deliveries is £5.60, increasing the average cost of production.

Outline the breakdown of relationships.

Duck's Phase Model claims that breakdown happens in four stages. The first stage is Intrapsychic whereby an individual realises there is a problem within the relationship. The second is Dyadic whereby the individual confronts their partner. The third is Social whereby the individual discusses the relationship with their friends. The last stage is Grave Dressing whereby the couple breaks up and each tell their own version of events in order to leave the relationship with low levels of blame.  Duck's Phase Model claims that breakdown happens in four stages.

Why are monopolies dynamically efficient?

Monopolies generate economic profit and are therefore better able to invest in research & development which may improve their productive effiency, making them more dynamically efficient over time.
