I am a student at The University of Exeter and I am studying Economics and Geography. I have been told that i have a great ability to simplify difficult questions to help give clear, step by step solutions. Therefore I feel I can really help you succeed in your subject. I tutor in Geography, Economics and Maths and am happy to help you with any problems you may have
I am very approachable and friendly and I believe you will enjoy working with me to find fun and different approaches to the often tricky Economics, Maths or Geography questions that you will face.
During the sessions,we will go over anything that you are struggling with from the basics of the subject to just getting some exam question practice. I find using clear diagrams or drawings can often help make difficult concepts more clear, however we can work out together how you learn best. I will adapt my tutoring to your style of learning as well as the speed in which you need things explained.
Talking to someone closer to your age means that I have studied for the same exams in the past 5 years and therefore completely understand the content and am able to relate more to you and your studying. This also means the sessions will be more fun than talking to your school teachers :)
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Currency and the Exchange rate can be a difficult topic to get your head around. I found a little cheat for remembering the different impacts of weaker or stronger currencies : SPICED which stands for Strong Pound Imports Cheaper, Exports Dear. If you can remember this it becomes easier to understand the impacts of currency fluctuations.
Fluctuations will firstly affect the rate of inflation. Changes in the prices of imported goods and services has a direct impact on the consumer price index. For example a depreciation of the exchange rate will increase the price of imported consumer goods and services. Similarly a lower exchange rate makes it easier to sell overseas because of a fall in relative prices (relative to the price elasticity of demand).
A change in exchange rate can also have large impacts on levels of unemplyment in an economy. An exchange rate appreciation causes lower levels of real GDP growth because of a fall in net exports and an increase in demand for imports. (This can be shown on a circular flow diagram). Export reliant industries are significantly more affected by currency fluctuations while businesses that operate domestically will be less affected.
A fall in currency can however create large benefits to a economy. A drop in the pound for example, is an example of expansionary monetary policy and can be used to stimulate demand and output when a country is in a recession or slump. Economists have estimated that a 1% fall in the exchange rate has the same effect as a 0.2% point cut in interest rates.
