I recently graduated from the with a first class degree in Economics and Econometrics from the University of York. 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. This coming autumn I will move to Sweden, where I will be studying for a Masters in Statistics at Uppsala University. 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.
I have deferred masters offers to study Statistics and Mathematical Economics at Uppsala University and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne respectively. On the advice of my supervisory, however, I am currently applying to the MSc in Statistical Science at Oxford.
I am a blogger for the Huffington Post, as well as writing occasional articles for various other publications.
I offer tuition primarily in econometrics and related quantitative methods, however I have experience tutoring undergraduates in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and uncertainty economics. I have over four years of tutoring experience; beginning in my final year of sixth form to the present day.
I tutor with the aim of helping students to not only understand but also enjoy the subjects in which they are struggling. The modules in which I specialize, principally econometrics and related quantitative methods, have very interesting real world applications; a beyond superficial understanding is crucial in allowing student to achieve high marks in their exams, but can only come about if the student finds genuine interest in the subject.
