About me

Hi, I'm 22 years old and studying a MA in Democracy and Elections at the University of Manchester. Although this sounds specific, my undergraduate in Politics and International Relations included lots of history and philosophy. These subjects have excited and inspired me from Sixth Form onwards. I have a keen interest not only in current affairs and engaging in our democracy, but also in explaining theories and concepts to people who may not study politics at this level.

Hi, I'm 22 years old and studying a MA in Democracy and Elections at the University of Manchester. Although this sounds specific, my undergraduate in Politics and International Relations included lots of history and philosophy. These subjects have excited and inspired me from Sixth Form onwards. I have a keen interest not only in current affairs and engaging in our democracy, but also in explaining theories and concepts to people who may not study politics at this level. Of course, you cannot have politics without philosophy or history so the three subjects for me create a great combination that allows us to examine the here and now, the past and how ideas and ideologies link it all together. I will share my knowledge and expertise with each tutor but in a patient, friendly and compassionate way that helps each student feel like the lessons are being taught with them, not to them. I also specialise in essay writing, language and structure. This will help students translate their knowledge in to coherent, intelligent and compelling essays for maximum marks.

About my sessions

I remember the stress of exams, feeling the need to pack in as much information as possible before your exam date is stressful! A hugely important insight helped me through exams and it forms the key to my approach to tutoring. Exams and assessment are not about remembering, it is testing your understanding of the course. Only remembering is far more stressful than understanding because it involves remembering things that do not make complete sense to you. A...

I remember the stress of exams, feeling the need to pack in as much information as possible before your exam date is stressful! A hugely important insight helped me through exams and it forms the key to my approach to tutoring. Exams and assessment are not about remembering, it is testing your understanding of the course. Only remembering is far more stressful than understanding because it involves remembering things that do not make complete sense to you. A tutor needs an ability to understand why a student may be struggling with something and how to help them. I will make sure to not just talk at who I am tutoring, but instead really listen to where they are with a topic and then work with them to further their own understanding on their own terms. I will not bring a rigid format or style to my sessions but instead listen to how each student learns best then adapt to suit them. I like mind maps of theories and concepts to understand the links between events, theories and concepts. There’s always a place for visual techniques like graphs and diagrams to help information be absorbed easier. I will focus on the foundations of the topic and work up to the specifics, there is no point remembering lots of facts and dates but not understanding their importance.
