Former lecturer at the University of Oxford and tutor at LSE with over five years of teaching experience in economics and econometrics

Methodology

Having taught many cohorts of students at both LSE and the University of Oxford, I have developed over the years a very interactive teaching style, where I help students find the solution to a problem using what they already know. If a student struggles with a particular exercise, I ask a few questions that will help them come up with a strategy to solve it. Very often, I have found that students who feel that they are not able to solve a given problem actually have all the tools to do so, but they just need a few guiding questions to lead them to the answer. This is why it is crucial to create a learning environment where students feel that they are not judged if they make a mistake. On the contrary, I firmly believe that it is by trying things out and by making mistakes that we actually do some real learning! Since I have started teaching, students have responded extremely positively to this way of teaching, as evidenced by the following comments made by former LSE students in anonymised surveys:

“Dr. Grigorieff goes through the tough concepts and makes it much easier to understand. I only understand what was taught in the lecture after attending the classes.”

“I think Alexis is very well prepared for the class and has a genuine passion for teaching. He makes an effort to involve everyone in class. Alexis also places great emphasis on concepts that are important to our study which is really helpful.”

“Excellent teacher, great chap!”

“He is very clear and very good at time management, managing to cover all of the material in every class and he is always available to answer questions.”

“Engaging, smiley, look forward to his classes. One of the best teachers at LSE.”

“I think he is extremely good at making the classes intellectually stimulating and engaging, and does an excellent job at providing clarity on difficult subjects.”

“Great teacher, very good at simplifying things so we understand.”

“He is very good at explaining in simple language which helps us to understand better.”

“Finally, a really good class teacher at LSE!”

Experience

Over the past five years, I have been both a lecturer and a class teacher in economics and econometrics at two of the leading universities in the UK: the London School of Economics and the University of Oxford. I have experience both at the graduate and undergraduate level, and I know very well the issues that students can have when studying economics and how they can be solved. I know that students are often very concerned about their final exams, and I help them develop strategies on how to tackle exam questions. In particular, I make sure to cover as many past papers as possible during the preparation.

As a tutor at LSE, I received several bonuses for outstanding teaching, and I have received overwhelmingly positive feedback on my lectures in econometrics for the MSc in Economic and Social History at the University of Oxford.

Thanks to my experience as a tutor and lecturer, I believe that I have the relevant skills to help students understand the course material and prepare for their final exams.

As I don't have any math background, I wanted a tutor that could break up complex problem sets into smaller, understandable steps for me. Alexis made everything look so easy, and I could finally understand the topics I was struggling with. I absolutely recommend him.
