About me

Hi, I am William and I am studying economics at the University of Edinburgh.

Having started learning economics at A level, I became passionate about the subject straight away. Being able to learn the fundamental concepts of economics allowed me to gain a comprehensive understanding of why and how an economy works. Using basic economic theory, I could apply it to the real world and understand affairs such as why the trade war is detrimental to not only China or the US, but also the world...

Hi, I am William and I am studying economics at the University of Edinburgh.

Having started learning economics at A level, I became passionate about the subject straight away. Being able to learn the fundamental concepts of economics allowed me to gain a comprehensive understanding of why and how an economy works. Using basic economic theory, I could apply it to the real world and understand affairs such as why the trade war is detrimental to not only China or the US, but also the world economy.

Having experienced A levels, I can truly say it was challenging since it was a big step up from GCSEs. However, I believe anything is possible with determination and perseverance.

Being remotely experienced in teaching, I worked as a tutor at the Kumon Education for a year when I was 16. Helping children ranging from ages of 5-14 with their English and Mathematics allowed me to develop patience and techniques in explaining simple concepts in a way that suits each student. Additionally, I was the economics subject leader at my sixth form; I took part in revision sessions that would help lower sixth students to prepare for assessments. It gave me great satisfaction in knowing that I could help someone at the same time as consolidating my knowledge.

I wish to build on my skills and challenge myself with tutoring. To also share my experiences of applying to university, revising for exams and ultimately, helping you achieve your goal.

My lessons will be tailored to the needs of the student. I hope to establish goals that the student would like to achieve in the future and individual sessions, this will be a way to measure progress along with the standard or work inspected by teachers and me from time to time.

In online lessons, I aim to develop the student's skills in one field or another within the subject. Whether that is working on specific topics in the course that needs clarification, or on key skills such as exam techniques. Therefore, I plan to structure my lessons into 3 parts. The first part of the lesson would include me explaining concepts that the student wish to have help in. The second part would involve some discussion-based or practice questions related theory. Lastly, I would take any further questions, give my advice on how to approach the theory and set some short exercises during the week to consolidate knowledge.

I would prepare outside of the online classroom by coming up with interactive questions for discussion that allows the student to put the theory into practice, looking at past paper questions and examiners' comments on common mistakes and focus on the specification outline provided by the exam board for crucial areas to work on.

With a strategic and organised approach, also with a goal in sight, I believe it will encourage the motivation for the student to learn and succeed.
