R.S. & Philosophy Tutors

Milan Shah

Economics & Philosophy Tutor

My name is Milan and I am in my 2nd year at the London School of Economics, studying Politics and Philosophy. Over the last few years I've tutored regularly at a homework club for children with learning disabilities, did weekly 1 on 1 tutoring in preparation for the 11+, and helped coach my school's under 13's debating team. I thoroughly enjoy helping others to achieve their goals and I am in a great position to support people who need some extra help at school.


During my time at Upper School in Hammersmith I achieved 3 A's at A level. I went on to the London School of Economics and have thoroughly enjoyed my first year, achieving a 2.1 in Politics and Philosophy. I chose this course as I have particular interest in the way society works, including the impact different institutions have on the way people live. I have recently had work experience in Law at the firm Nabarro, and journalism at Thomson Reuters where 2 of my articles were published.

Personal Approach

I think that to be a good teacher you have to first understand your student. Trying the same techniques over and over again ignores the fact that everyone works differently. This is why I strive to get on my student's wavelength, to discover what works for them. Also I believe that, even at a young age, it is important to see the relevance of what you are learning in the real world. I believe this encourages students, as it encourages me, to see the importance in what you are studying.

When I'm not tutoring...

Outside of studying I enjoy cooking, keeping myself in shape, going to music festivals and travelling. I recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro on a trip to Tanzania and hitch-hiked to Hamburg fundraising for the charity 'Farm Africa'. Living in London my whole life has been great as the City has so much to offer, and I think there's no better place to grow up.
