Personal Description:

PLEASE NOTE: I will be in mainland Europe until September 15 for a winter internship, and so am only available for online tutoring over the winter break. I will be back in York on September 16, however.

I am a finalist at the University of York, reading towards a BSc in Economics and Econometrics. Upon completing my A-levels, I embarked upon a year of formative work and travel in Europe; predominantly France. In the previous academic year I took part in a yearlong exchange at the University of Hong Kong, after which I traveled to Nepal where I spent two months as a statistical research intern at the Institute for Integrated Development Studies. Presently, I am in the process of completing a winter internship at the Center for the Study of Democracy. After graduating, I hope to undertake an MSc in Statistics at a European institution.

I am fluent in English and Italian, capable of conversing in French, and having spent a year in Hong Kong am able to understand some (very little!) Cantonese. The funds derived from tutoring I plan on splitting between the now prohibitive costs of further education, and future trips abroad.

Tutoring Experience:

Whilst many tutors will have been taught under the previous GCSE system, or even the O-level system, my year was the first to undertake the new syllabus GCSEs. Having achieved dignifiable results in both my A-levels and GCSEs, I believe that through my experience I may extrapolate points of difficulty of my own, and apply these to students with subjects specific troubles.

I have over four years of experience tutoring a range of subjects to students of different ages across four countries. My travels in Europe were indeed funded by tutoring sessions which I gave during my A-level exams. Previously, I have tutored pupils at GCSE level, GCE level, and undergraduate level (in econometrics, in intermediate micro and macroeconomics, and in quantitative techniques for economics). While in Hong Kong, I also gave English lessons to pre-GCSE pupils.

In my first year at York I was ranked in the top 95% of my cohort, having averaged 77.9% over the year (including 94% in Mathematics I and 87% in Statistics I). In York, too, my year was the first to be examined under the revised economics syllabus; which in particular saw year one students sit what would have been year two exams in micro and macroeconomics.

Tutoring Approach:

Where many will teach with a view to passing exams, it is my belief that if true enjoyment can be fund in a subject a good grade will follow naturally. A certain amount of subject specific knowledge will always have to be learnt mechanically, and for that reason the first few lessons will be spent testing the student's theoretical knowledge of the subject being taught. Latter lessons will however focus on the real world applications of the subject, and in particular will relate the subject's use to the student's own interests.

I have access to a wide range of digital and physical text books which helped me through my Key Stage 2-5 studies (which I am willing to lend), as well as exam papers dating from the present date through to 2004 published by the following exam boards: AQA, OCR, WJEC.

For undergraduate students, I generally try to incorporate material from courses I have previously taken with the course in question. To that end, I have access to a wide range of textbooks and accompanying lecture notes. When close to a final exam, I am also happy to set mini-problem sets in the style of your university's final exam. Please note, for students seeking tuition in time series analysis, I am only familiar with uni-variate analysis and I only really use R for statistical analysis.

For economics students at the University of York, I have access to redacted notes taken from textbooks and core readings. In preparation for summer exams, I would also be happy to share revision aids made during my first year; including detailed essay plans for Historical Perspectives, and a custom excel program which generates questions very similar to those in the Microeconomics I exam.
