About me

About Me:

I am studying for an MSc in Economics at University College London.  I did my undergraduate degree in Oxford studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics, and as a result am familiar with the tutorial system from the student's point of view.  

The Sessions:

My approach will be for the tutorials to be student-led, as you will often have the best idea of what areas of your subject you need to work on most.  I will work at your speed, and will make sure that we get the most out of each and every tutorial.  I believe that enjoying the subject is the best way to motivate yourself to study and take in what we cover, so I will focus on engaging you with the material rather than just talking at you for an hour.  I'm really passionate about all the subjects I teach, and want my students to find them interesting too! 

Oxbridge Application and Entrance Tests

Having gone through the tough Oxford entry process and spoken to a lot of my friends about their experience, I am well placed to provide advice on personal statements, interviews and general preparation.  If the course you want to apply for requries the TSA exam, then I can go through problems and the essay section so you get a full understanding of what the admissions team are looking for.  

What next?

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 look forward to meeting you!

With Jonathan we found the best a tutor can offer! Due to a last minute change of circumstances, we needed help the late evening for the morning after and Jonathan was there as he promised and until everything was properly done. He helped us the whole morning with awesome advice, adjusting his feedbacks in a very flexible manner as our work was unfolding, adding at every stage not only his precise corrections but also suggestions to help us keep in mind the big picture. We wholeheartedly recommend him!

What are some advantages and disadvantages of the 'first-past-the-post' electoral system?

Under first-past-the-post (FPTP), as practiced in the UK, each constituency elects one MP by what is called plurality voting. This means, more or less, that the candidate with the most votes wins. One advantage of this system is that it is simple to understand and therefore does not need to be...

Under first-past-the-post (FPTP), as practiced in the UK, each constituency elects one MP by what is called plurality voting. This means, more or less, that the candidate with the most votes wins. One advantage of this system is that it is simple to understand and therefore does not need to be explained to voters. This is in contrast to some other systems such as STV, which requires voters to rank a large number of candidates, and employs a relatively obscure method of picking the winning candidates based on these preferences. Another advantage of FPTP is that it provides a strong MP-constituency link, with one MP devoted to the needs of a particular geographical area. This can be contrasted with the closed or open list proportional systems, which can have many representatives per constituency. In Israel, for example, the whole country is one big constituency. 

A disadvantage of FPTP is that it is not proportional, that is, parties' number of seats in the legislature do not accurately reflect the share of the popular vote in the election. FPTP tends to be biased towards bigger parties which can get more than 30% of the vote in a lot of constituencies. In 2005, the Labour party won a sizeable majority in the House of Commons with only 35.2% of the popular vote. Advocates of FPTP argue that this is actually a virtue of the system, as it allows for strong majority government even when no party commands majority support in the country as a whole.

What is the difference between accounting and economic profit?

Accounting profit is revenues minus explicit costs, which include wages and machine rental among other things. But there are also implicit costs, or opportunity costs. These can arise because the factors of production used by the firm (labour and capital) could potentially be used to make more...

Accounting profit is revenues minus explicit costs, which include wages and machine rental among other things. But there are also implicit costs, or opportunity costs. These can arise because the factors of production used by the firm (labour and capital) could potentially be used to make more money when put to another use. For example, say I start a business and take all the accounting profit for myself. If my firm requires 40 hours per week of my labour time, and only makes £40,000 accounting profit, when I could have made £50,000 working 40 hours per week for another firm, the economic profit is actually -£10,000.

What is the logical problem of evil?

The logical problem of evil is usually cast as an argument for the logical  inconsistency of a number of claims that traditional theism holds. These include the claims: 1) God exists 2) God is omnipotent 3) God is omniscient 4) God is perfectly good and 5) Evil exists. The argument says that st...

The logical problem of evil is usually cast as an argument for the logical inconsistency of a number of claims that traditional theism holds. These include the claims: 1) God exists 2) God is omnipotent 3) God is omniscient 4) God is perfectly good and 5) Evil exists. The argument says that statements 1-4 are inconsistent with 5, since an omniscient God would know about all evils, an omnipotent God would be able to prevent them, and a perfectly good God would have an overriding reason to do so. The logical problem of evil can then be cast as a deductive argument from the premise that evil does in fact exist to the conclusion that the God of traditional theism (omnipotent, omniscient, perfectly good) does not exist. The logical problem can be contrasted with the evidential problem of evil, which does not claim that just any evil would be inconsistent with God, but that the existence of the kind of terrible suffering which we know to exist gives good evidence for the conclusion that such a God does not exist.
