About me

About me I am studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics at the University of Exeter. My degree incorporates a wide variety of disciplines and skills that will allow me to help tutees through a spectrum of problems and challenges. My passion for Politics and current affairs is something I hope to instil in tutees by offering my expertise in global politics and international relations, whilst engaging in tutorials that are relevant and pre-planned. As well as this, my degree encompasses extensive essay practice, which is extremely relevant to helping with both GCSE and A-level coursework. Beyond this, my ability in Maths and Economics will allow me to explain concepts so they become digestible and easy to understand.  Past tutoring experience In school I was a mentor for younger children with learning disabilities. Through this I have learned that it is important to be patient and to have an understanding of the different ways that individuals learn best. I think that it is absolutely vital to first get an understanding for a tutees preferred learning style before engaging in tutorials.  The Tutorials In order for tutees to get the most out of the tutorials I intend to pre plan lessons focusing on areas that they find most challenging. As well as this, I want tutorials to be fun! I have a good sense of humour and I have always enjoyed learning, my hope that this will translate into a fun learning experience for my tutees.

Questions Oliver has answered

What's the best technique for writing an introduction to an essay?

Introductions are a key part of any good essay as this is the first taste the marker is going to get for what your essay is about. There are a few key things to remember when writing an Introduction. Firstly, keep in concise! More detailed analysis should be left to the main body of the essay. The best way to do this is to set out one key thing that you intend to say in the main essay, in each sentence of the introduction (two sentences at most!). You should also outline the approach you are going to take. For example you may want to first analyse arguments for, then separately analyse arguments against a particular question before reaching a conclusion. (There are many different ways to approach a question but setting your approach out in the intro will help with the flow of your essay) Using these tips will make your essay easier to follow and understand (which is definitely a plus!) I hope this is helpful.
