Hi! My name is Almog Adir and I am currently in my first year studying Economics at the University of Bristol. I come from an international background having gone to both an international school and a British public school. This diverse background makes me friendly, approachable, and patient!
I have had experience in one-to-one tutoring and I am now looking to help more students with my expertise! I am most passionate about economics, having written study guides for fellow students, actively write an economics blog, and study it at university!
Outside of academics I have worked as an assistant sailing instructor during my Easter and summer holidays. This has given me valuable experience in teaching from an age range of 8 to 18, whether it was practical skills or sailing theory. I feel that this experience will help me deliver an engaging and useful tutorial program.
How Will The Sessions Work?
I am a firm believer in visual engagement and problem solving during tutorials. Rather than delivering a one hour lecture I feel that by supplementing the material with examples and questions builds the foundation blocks of understanding, which then enables students to approach and answer more complex problems. As well as giving them the confidence and ability to approach new questions effectively, similar to that of an exam scenario.
I hope to deliver an engaging session that will also be fun! In the end you will be able to explain any of the concepts back to me, and be able to approach the problems with greater confidence!
What Else Can I Help You With?
I am also very happy to help with university application and personal statements. I am especially strong in the History Aptitude Test, and academic interview preparation!
Please tell me what areas you are having trouble with, and at what level whether that is GCSE, A-Level, or IB.
Feel free to contact me through “WebMail” or book a “Meet The Tutor Session”. Looking forward to meeting you!

It can be argued that gross domestic product does not actually do a good job of what we most often use it to display: growth. There are some key aspects that are ignored through the use of GDP as a marker for the growth and welfare of an economy. It is important to clarify that growth is not necessarily good if there is the exploitation of land, labour, and capital. This is because the main aim of the economy is the provision of our welfare, so people are employed, stable prices, and sustainable growth.
Gross Domestic Product can be defined as:
The market value of all the goods and products produced or provided within a country at a given moment in time.
There are various ways to determine the GDP of a country, there is the expenditure approach or the production approach. The expenditure approach is:
GDP = private consumption + gross investment + government spending + (exports-imports)
This identifies the first issue in which GDP fails to accurately measure the welfare of an economy. The calculation of GDP at no point involves whether or not the welfare of the people has improved, GDP is used as an indicator of a standard of living because the central variables tend to attribute towards factors that improves people’s welfare within an economy. GDP should be considered as an indicator of economic activity.
The measurement of gross domestic product is considered to have externalities; in this case it is the recognition of the factors that attribute to welfare and standard of living that the measurement ignores.
The use of gross domestic product can be useful to give a holistic view of a countries economy, however when looking at the welfare of an economy it fails to be an effective indicator because it does not involve factors such as happiness, and non-monetary activity within that country which directly attribute to peoples standard of living. This is why there are other approaches to the welfare of an economy such as the Human Development Index (HDI) or Gross National Happiness (GNH). The main issue with attempting to indicate a level of welfare within a country is that factors such as environmental sustainability can be difficult at times to quantify, and equally so with happiness. However, the dependence of GDP to indicate welfare of an economy and growth is becoming an outdated conceptsee more
