I absolutely love economics and politics- they are so much more than just a bunch of people spending their days in a room arguing about various and that is one of the key things I want to get across, it is a living breathing subject that implications on the real world.

I have always wanted to a job that would mean I could give back to the community and I think that tutoring is the best way to do this. I absolutely love economics and politics- they are so much more than just a bunch of people spending their days in a room arguing about various and that is one of the key things I want to get across, it is a living breathing subject that implications on the real world. I consider myself pretty approachable so hopefully the sessions would be relaxed, with as little pressure as possible, yet the student will walk out feeling like they truly understand a topic which is the most important thing. With exams becoming more complicated as the years go by it is becoming clear that people need to understand a topic in order to do well- rote learning processes does not ensure that those types fo questions will be in the exams- exam boards are adding in more twists all the time.!

About my sessions

I think that one of the best ways to teach is to work with the student in such a way that it means you are both working together to solve a problem, rather than a tutor just telling you the way things are without you understanding it.

I think that one of the best ways to teach is to work with the student in such a way that it means you are both working together to solve a problem, rather than a tutor just telling you the way things are without you understanding it. With exams becoming more complicated as the years go by it is becoming clear that people need to understand a topic in order to do well- rote learning processes does not ensure that those types do questions will be in the exams- exam boards are adding in more twists all the time! Each session would be a topic which would be split up to the essentials of the topic- evaluation of the theory and then application in questions. I would measure progress by giving questions surrounding the topic for the pupil to do, there would not be many questions, it is more about varying the difficulty and style of question.

We went over many TSA past papers and Jamie does an excellent job in explaining each problem. He goes over why every answer choice is incorrect in order to help students achieve full understanding of the concept/question.
