OVER 6000 TUTORING HOURS SO FAR.... I am a professional full-time Economics/ Business and Maths tutor with a rigorous approach to learning that proves working hard & achieving the very best can be made enjoyable as well as challenging… but it's always satisfying!
A current professional in the City of London, having worked for the government, I ingrain an analytical approach and a genuine curiosity and enjoyment for the subject in all my students. It soon becomes second nature to think intuitively about the problem, discuss, evaluate and unlock the highest marks possible.
For over 6 years I have also had experience in running revision workshops prior to the summer exams, with a specific focus on using learning styles and exam technique to achieve higher exam results.
I hold a Masters Degree in Business, and my personal specialisms are Economics, Business Studies and Maths for GCSE, A-Level, IB, degree and master degree level.
I have tutored these subjects extensively with all my students improving their grades beyond their own expectations; with a selection of them going on to achieve complete full marks!
Availability: In the evenings and anytime at the weekends.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
I have over 7 years of tutoring experience. Having tutored for several years, I am familiar with all major exam boards (Edexcel, OCR, AQA, CIE, IB,) and for University level, the general structure/format of exams that institutions typically set.
I employ a pragmatic style that really delivers results and I generally look to improve grades by at least 2-grade boundaries, with the majority of my students receiving the top grade possible.
Furthermore, while many tutors may very well offer tuition regarding the material - I also pride myself on being able to help students with the other, less tangible skills required such as Exam technique and, crucially, Confidence. I feel this adds a huge amount of value and can impact grades significantly given the "it's how you perform on the day" factor.
For those students who are at all panicked, nervous or worried by looming exams, I will ensure that this is no longer an issue by exam day. I see clearly why people seek private tuition, and I believe it should complement, enhance and build on a student's formal education. Private tuition with me will give students a real edge over their peers, that they would not otherwise have had. Also, I teach in groups and I offer guidance on coursework and dissertations.
Please message me for more details, Tutoring Approach: I believe when people are both relaxed and interested they will be more able to learn. I will try and relate the lessons to something which is of interest to the learner. I believe it is my approach and learning system to the subjects which my tutees will find very effective.
The key is to be precise and follow the specifications strictly; this utilizes the most productive method in learning the given content in the minimal time possible. Further more past paper practice is key to any exam success given the nature of the methodological structure of the examining systems. I also believe that one must have a strong foundation in the subject to progress on to advanced level and hence I do not jump on to complex ideas without explaining and assuring the student of the basic ones. With me, my tutees will find a precise, relevant and practical approach to achieving high grades at all levels.
I am a dedicated, hard working, creative, inspirational and humorous person. I am positive, caring, curious, inquisitive and vibrant. I am passionate about teaching, and believe as a tutor, and as a person, we are invaluable in helping children achieve their potential. I enjoy teaching through innovative strategies, catering specifically for the needs of my learners.
