Hi, I am a graduate of Durham University, having recieved a 2:1 in history. I have specialised in socio-economic history; in final year I took two modules (alongside my dissertation) entitle British Consumerism 1660-1760 and The History of American Capitalism.
I really enjoy sharing my passion for History, Economics and English with my tutees and try to everything possible to help them achieve their full potential.
At Durham I study a wide range of history from medieval to late modern, from the golden age of Northumbria to the current issue effecting the White Nile region.
Of course, I have knowledge of other areas not listed here and I am always willing to use the extensive access to academic work I have to do further research for my pupils.
At A level I studied Economics (A*, 96%), History (A*, 95%), Maths (A) and English, Pre-U (D3, the equivalent of a high A at A level).
I also studied critical thinking at AS and undertook an extended project.

Macro economics is the larger picture, how the economy works for the whole country or region. Micro economics examines how things work in a smaller level, examining one industry, business or group of invidividuals and how limited resources are allocated.
While one could go into a rather complex answer for this, for an AS level question I would split this into 3 main parts, with a short introduction and conclusion.
The short introduction would outline your beliefs. Eg, Henry VIII split with the Catholic Church due to a combination of short term, long term and economic factors. They are linked by Henry VIII's dynastic ambitions.
1. Short term factors - Henry VIII wanted to marry Anne Boleyn. Not only did she influence Henry towards accepting Protestantism, but it was lust and love which drove Henry to seek a divorce at this point. However, this can also by linked to dynastic ambitions, which is a long term factor, as Henry thought he needed a son to secure the Tudor dynasty. This would be your link to the next paragraph.
2. Long term factors - power and dynasty. In order to secure his position on the throne, a son was needed to secure his dynasty. However, this method also gave Henry power over the church, arguably the most powerful body at the time. He has already been denied a divorce by the Pope and was unlikely to be granted one as the Pope has Charles V's captive. By separating from the established church, this gave Henry supreme power over his kingdom and ultimate control over England.
3. Link - wealthy and powerful. Monetary factors. The church was the largest landholder in England so was extremely wealthy. Henry had been left bankrupt by the field of cloth of gold. In order to continue his ambitious foreign policy and chivalric displays (which was very important to show dynastic power and ambition) he needed money. The split from Catholicism provided an easy source of revenue.
There are a mixture of short, longterm and economic factors involved. Linking all of these is Henry VIII's dynastic ambitions. This (personally) is the reason for Henry's split from the Catholic Church.
This is a very brief and condensed outline of my beliefs over Henry VIII's split from Rome in a formate which reflects an essay outline. As such, it is far from a perfect essay which would require more analysis and facts.see more
