About me

I am 19 years old and when I'm not busy tutoring, I'm studying for my degree, at the gym, playing cricket or with friends. I am a very enthusiastic and confident person, who aims to make every activity I do fun- including tutoring! I am easy to talk to and approachable, and I love all the subjects that I offer. Studying for my A levels was a really enjoyable time for me as I found all three of my subjects interesting, so hopefully I can pass on my enthusiasm to my students. MY special field is Media Studies, which not only did I excel in through school, I also regularly tutor most of my students in.

About my sessions

My sessions are mostly based around a past exam question. at the beginning of the session, I will ask the student how they would respond to the past paper question that we are tackling. We then work through the question together, discussing potential answers. I also make close reference to the mark scheme during this time so that when t comes to the exam, the student will know exactly what to do. We will usually then plan the answer and I will see if the student feels like they have progressed from the start of the lesson- which 100% of the time is a massive yes! I then recommend that the student writes the past question in their spare time.

Amazing help with Media Studies A Level, plans the lessons and makes every lesson enjoyable. Gives great feedback on all perspectives media has to offer. In the little time we had, Lucy made me feel a lot more comfortable and educated ready for my exam. Thank you once again Lucy.

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.

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.
