Government and Politics
I'm currently an undergraduate student at the University of Manchester, studying Politics & Economics. I picked up the passion of the subject when I first began learning about it at A-Level. It's driven me to write a blog on global news, politics and economics which I've maintained for a year. I've excelled in my first year at university, gaining First Class in all my modules, and look to continue my degree in the same vein. I'm not all about books and study though - I am still a student myself after all!
Obviously as a student myself, I don't have vast teaching experience. However I feel this fails to put me at a major disadvantage; if anything, having sat and studied the exams myself recently I can better convey what material needs to be learnt with examples and exam technique. In this last year I have tutored half a dozen students, and have been a part of peer-mentoring schemes in my academic institutions, all of which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I mainly cover the Edexcel A Level curriculum - all of Units 1 & 2 which cover all AS material, and specialise in Unit 3 Topic A (UK Political Issues) and Unit 4 Topic A (EU Political Issues) for A2 students.
Most students find the idea of extra work outside of school hours a painful thought. Because of this, I take a friendly, more informal approach to tutoring; I understand the stress and the confusion of certain topics that they've gone through, and have come out of it successful, which I hope inspires my students. I like my students to feel relaxed and at home, and able to talk to me on a personal level. I've found that good relationships with your teachers are crucial to how hard you strive to do well in a subject, so I aim to emulate the fortune I've had with my teachers in the past. On the academic side, I like to explain things through and answer questions and queries, before I do a quick-fire round of questions to test how much they've retained from the session. Once the session is over, I set exam questions which I expect to be answered under timed conditions and returned to me the following session.
