MA Political Economy student at a top London university, offering lessons in Politics, Economics and History in Manchester.

Methodology

I base my teaching on the students needs while offering alternative ways of thinking about how understand problems. I have had a multidisciplinary education and think that it offers a lot of value to students, benefiting them not just in achieving higher grades but giving them a skill-set to take on in employment or further study.

Background

I am a Political Economy MA student, who graduated with a 2:1 in Politics from SOAS in 2017. I am a forecaster at the Good Judgement Project, using my education to accurately predict future political and economic events. While I was at SOAS I tutored pupils at A Level in Politics and History, subjects which I myself received an A grade. I have an extensive and detailed knowledge of politics, economics and history, suitable for tutoring up to postgraduate level.

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £19
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £18

Details

If you are coming to see me, I can be very flexible about cancellations up to an hour before but will not see you again if I am not told that you are cancelling. I will let you know if I need to cancel or rearrange 24hrs before hand, and if I have to cancel on you twice I will offer a lesson for free.

Jonathon's CV

I am currently finishing an MA in Political Economy at King’s College London after having completed a BA in Politics from SOAS. I have covered game theory, evaluating public policy and economic history among other modules as a part of my postgraduate studies.

I am a confident and versatile thinker who is not averse to challenging dogmatic and entrenched positions. I participate in the Good Judgement Project, a geopolitical forecasting competition which requires me to be thoroughly up to date in political developments around the world. My undergraduate and postgraduate studies have focused on comparative methods of understanding, which has helped me in my forecasting as well as other work in that I am able to quickly make links as well as understand unfamiliar ideas quickly. I am passionate about problem solving, especially in the political sphere.

My interest in practical and effective solutions to political problems led me to help found the SOAS Policy Forum, a student led think tank. We achieved a lot for a small team, and I thoroughly enjoyed working with ideas and working on policies in areas such a such the South China Sea, the housing problem in the UK and refugee employment in the EU. I have organised many successful events and am at ease when organising speakers, as well as making them feel welcome and providing them with thoughtful questions and topics which were tailored for our audiences.

While I ran the Policy Forum we ran a number of successful workshops on Open Source Intelligence, am delighted a number of well attended, diverse and informative events. I am comfortable reading academic literature and writing for academic and general purposes.
