Personal Description:

I am a PhD Economics candidate at Lancaster University close to submitting my thesis, and I have five years experience as a professional tutor.

I hold both a MSc (distinction) and a BSc (Hons.) (first class) in Economics. I secured the highest overall marks of my cohort for both degrees and am the recipient of multiple awards from Lancaster University for my academic achievements (outlined below).

I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy which reflects the investments I have made to developing my teaching practice. I have been employed to teach economics to undergraduates at a top 10 university since 2015.

Academic Awards:
Chancellor's Medal, LUMS Dean's List and Best Academic Performance Prize (Dec 2015): Awarded for the best academic performance across the University, Management School, and economics department respectively.
Professor Balasubramanyam Prize (Nov 2015): Awarded for the "most outstanding performance in mathematical economics and econometrics."
Professor Balasubramanyam Prize (Jul 2014): Awarded for delivering the "most outstanding performance in the field of development economics."
Elizabeth Brunner Prize (Jul 2013 and Jul 2014): Awarded to the "most outstanding and meritorious second/third year undergraduate in the department of economics."
Philip Andrews Memorial Prize (Jul 2012): Awarded for exceptional academic performance in Part I (Year 1) BSc economics studies.

Tutoring Experience:

For the past three years I have taught "Principles of Economics" which is a first year undergraduate course at the University of Lancaster. I started working part time as a private tutor in economics in early 2014. Since then, I have offered tuition to over fifty satisfied students; both in person and remotely over the internet. In some cases I have tutored students in each year of their degree programmes.

My tutoring experience covers elementary mathematics, to advanced economic and econometric theory, as well as applied economics (such as dissertation research projects). In addition to economics tuition, I am able to help students get to grips with complex econometrics and statistical software programmes, such as Stata, SPSS, R and eViews.

In 2017, I was granted Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. The HEA promotes reflective and evidence-based teaching practice at universities, and my membership reflects my commitment to excellent teaching practice. I have attended multiple teaching workshops including those organised by the Economics Network - a body which promotes good teaching practice in economics education.

I have experience providing tuition in the following fields:
microeconomics (principles, intermediate and advanced)
macroeconomics (principles, intermediate, advanced and applied)
econometrics (statistical underpinning, theory and applications)
mathematical economics (introductory, intermediate and advanced)
public economics and political economics, labour economics (including the economics of education, and health economics), industrial organisation, development economics, sports economics, financial economics, and international banking and risk management

Statistical software: Stata, SPSS, R and eViews.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a student centric approach to tutoring. I ask the student what specific topics or concepts they are finding difficult, and I aim to provide a specific solution as well as a broader understanding of the topic and how it fits into the subject in question. I aim to highlight links between topics or concepts within a subject to maximise student understanding.

I offer face-to-face tuition and online tuition via Skype. During Skype tuition I share my screen with students so I can draw diagrams and graphs, annotate materials and offer step by step explanations. Any notes I make during tutoring sessions are later shared with the student.
