About me

Hi, my name is Dan. I have recently completed a Masters in Sustainable Development at Exeter University. Previously I completed a Human Geography degree at the University of Portsmouth. I am passionate about my subject and believe geography can be related to almost any interest students may have.

My passion

I feel very passionate about my subject. The fact it can be relevant to almost any topic or interest makes it particularly fascinating. Social, environmental, economic, health and politics are all integral to society and can often be understood through geography. I wish to pass this passion on to others through tutoring. Helping people to understand its relevance and importance in everybody’s lives.

What I will do for you

This about YOU! As such I want to help make topics relevant to your interests. I believe people learn most effectively if they have an interest in the topic. If you’re interested in sport, music, animals, food or anything else, I will do my best to make learning relevant.

While I will stick to what is required by the examination boards I will make sure students can see the importance in a topic. Often it can be hard for students to see why they should learn a certain subject. To combat this I will highlight the topics relevance in the “real world”.

Most importantly this is your education so please tell me your interests, strengths and how I can best help you. This is a personal service with no one size fits all solution.

My experience

I volunteered with Devon Wildlife Trust for 6 months, delivering school talks and running field trips. I also coach junior cricket and football. Previously I have taught SCUBA diving and first aid.

I have completed an internship with a renewable energy advisory group (Regen SW). This provided me an insight into planning, renewable energy technologies and the practical application of learning geography.

My interests

I love to travel and have been lucky enough to do so. Countries include: Tanzania, Honduras, Thailand, Vietnam, India, New Zealand, Morocco, Canada, USA, French Polynesia plus several more.

I enjoy cooking and have previously worked as a chef and in catering.

I love sport and participate in: football, cricket, kayaking, SCUBA diving, tennis, rugby, cycling.

It is important to reduce energy demand for a number of reasons. It benefits the environment as it can reduce CO2 emissions. It reduces the risk of “the lights going out” where our energy production cannot meet our demand, therefore increasing energy security. It can also help people to reduce their energy bills which can be beneficial to local economies and reducing fuel poverty.

There are several ways to reduce energy demand:

Improving the energy efficiency of buildings can greatly increase demand. As much as 80% of the energy produced by power stations is lost by the time it is used in the home. This makes it one of the most important measures to reduce demand. By improving insulation in homes this issue can be effectively tackled.

Improving technology of electrical appliances can allow them to be used on less energy. Combined with this an improved grid system called a smart grid could greatly reduce consumption. This works by delivering energy based on when it is required rather than constant delivery.

Educating people as to how they can reduce their energy consumption can be very effective in changing behaviour and increasing awareness of energy use. Through understanding the benefits of carefully managing their energy use such as saving money and improving the environment, people are more likely to use energy sparingly.

There are many more options for decreasing demand and ways in which these ideas can be implemented. Above are just three major options for tackling this issue.
