This is how 2 referees rated Disha:
I'm currently a graduate student at the LSE in Health Economics and I also hold a first class MSc in Economics and a BSc Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Warwick. I also hold A*A*AA A-level qualifications in Economics, Maths, Sociology and English Literature.
Among my research achievements, my Masters dissertation has been chosen by Warwick university as one of the best dissertations of the year and my research has been selected for presentation at a major Economics conference in the UK.
My passion for teaching stems from having experienced both great teaching and bad teaching myself.In my lessons I take insights from the brilliant teachers I've had. Learning should be a positive and engaging experience and that's what I want to deliver to my students, every single lesson.
After university, I worked as a decision science researcher in London. My role involved trying to understand the research on the science of learning.
I’m also a founder of an online website for students. The idea behind the site is to communicate real world applications of Economics, Maths and Statistics, in an entertaining way, to students. Since it’s launch, the site has gathered readers from over 55 countries, including many Economics professors and think tanks.
I have over 3 years experience teaching students Economics, Maths and Statistics at A-level & University level.
A-level exam boards taught: AQA, Edexcel, CIE and SQA.
University Teaching: students from top 10 UK universities including LSE, Warwick, UCL, Bristol, Bath and others
Modules taught: Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics, Industrial Economics, Mathematical Economics, Game theory and Dissertation etc.
I have also helped a number of students gain admission into Economics courses at top 10 UK universities.
Every student learns in a different way and they have different subject areas they need to work on. My job is to find out how the individual student learns best and which subject matter they need to work on understanding.
Lessons should not be like lectures. Research shows that the more students test themselves and interact with the material they are trying to learn, the higher the performance. So, my lessons are structured as problem solving sessions where the students are pushing their brain to make connections.
Repetition is key to learning, it is what allows something to be stored in our long term memory.
To ensure that students can consolidate what they have covered in lessons, I supplement lessons with online tests and revision cards.
Curiosity & Engagement:
I have seen time and time again that the students who perform at the highest level are curious and engaged with their subject. So, I provide students with interesting articles and videos on their subject so they can see examples of the concepts they learn in class.

"Disha is very friendly and intelligent and really knows what she's talking about. She was able to explain things in different ways that made concepts that I was really struggling with much clearer and manageable. She prepares thoroughly for tutorials, and was able to tailor the tutorials to what I needed help with and the content of my specific course. In my case she was also able to help me out at very short notice and was able to give me support outside of the tutorials as well."
- Logan, Economics undergraduate student, University of Glasgow
" I had attended all the Math Econ lectures and still couldn't understand matrices. No one has ever explained the concepts to me as clearly as this."
- Nick, Economics Undergraduate, UCL
