Economics ultimately aims to understand decision making. Microeconomics and Game Theory offers the most flexible way of doing so, from auction design to winning at tic-tac-toe. I offer the chance to delve deeper and consider how agents make decisions and how incentives can be moulded to influence decision makers.
This can be applied to improve A-Level or GCSE Essays as well as to become a more accomplished Undergraduate. Being able to understand economic theory in terms of real life rather than simply on a theoretical level makes application much easier and offers more enjoyment.
Classes can be tailored to your interests but broadly we will discuss bidding and auctions (how to avoid the 'Winners Curse'), Microeconomic theory (How to make the best decision given limited resources) and also consider real world economic questions for example - why do we see companies spend money on decreasing quality to make a 'basic' product?
Taught by Award-Winning Graduate of UCL and Columbia Universities (First Class Honours) with a passion for microeconomics.
I have attained a degree from University College London and Columbia University in the City of New York. This means that I have a wide range of experience as a student of different learning styles and teaching etiquette. I have also mentored A Level students to University Success through volunteer work. This enables me to be flexible and friendly in tutoring drawing on my experiences to give sessions a feel of personal engagement.
