Hi, my name is Lucy and I am 18 years old. I am a first year studying BA Liberal Arts at The University of Exeter. What is Liberal Arts? I hear you say. It's a super cool degree which allows you to major in two humanities subjects and learn a langauge. I chose to do Sociology and Politics (after Sociology went so well for me at A level) and to learn Spanish!
I did A levels in English language, Sociology and Media Studies, in which I achieved 3 A grades, so you can rest assured I will be able to help you to achieve an A, too!
My teaching style is friendly yet assertive, fun yet focused. I will cover everything you need to know in broken down, simple sections, while using visual aids, as this is what I found worked best for me at A level.
You can also come to see me for any help on writing personal statements. My personal statement managed to get me: an unconditional offer, a scholarship, and three lower band offers, so I can impart my advice on you as best as I can, to make sure you get the best university offers, too!

Hyponyms and hypernyms are both terms that come under the lexis/semantics section of English language. A hypernym describes a more broad term, for example cutlery, or dog. A hyponym is a more specialised and specific word, for example: spoon would be a hyponym of cutlery and labrador would be a hyponym of dog.see more
The signifier and the signified are terms in media which refer to semiotic coding. The signifier is the object, the word, the image or action. the signified is the concept behind the object that is being represented. For example, the cross symbol is a signifier on a simple basis because it is two lines crossed over one another. but the Chrsitian faith and the morals that come with it are the signified.see more
The protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism is a theory produced by interactionist Max Weber. Weber studied a group of Calvinist protestants and their ascetic lifestyle. Calvinists believe in a thing called predestination, which meant that God had already decided who was and wasn't going to heaven, and it couldn't be changed. In order to overcome the anxiety this gave them, they lead an ascetic lifestyle- refraining from drinking and sexual pleasures, and working very hard in their careers. Weber concludes that it is this ascetic lifestyle led by the Calvinists that caused for a boom in the economy and industrialisation. This is therefore an argument FOR religion being a changing force on society.see more
