About Mark

I have over thirty years experience of teaching Economics at A Level. I am a senior examiner for A Level Economics for AQA and Edexcel and am also an examiner for OCR and IB, so I know exactly what examiners are looking for and can help with exam preparation and content.

I have a track record of improving grades for A level students through tutoring (See reviews).

I am a trainer for AQA for the new A Level Economics specifications and so know the requirements well. I recently received my doctorate and have had a book published about education.

I have a degree (BSc. Hons.) in Economics and Politics. I have a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and a Masters degree from Bath University.

I can offer high quality one to one tutoring for the entire A level or GCSE course, for individual units, or for exam preparation.

Availability: I am available most days in the week between 10am and 7pm and onSundays between 9am and 4pm

Willing to travel: Home Only

My Testimonials
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Niranjan
Mr. Mark helped me improve my economics grade significantly , from a B to an A* in the course of 2 months. His experience as an examiner aided with the improvement of my essay writing skills and my ability to use subject specific vocabulary. This was especially useful when answering the case-study based questions.

Before Kojo started with you he was considering dropping the subject. He could not grasp the concepts and his motivation was very low. Now he loves economics and did very well in his last class test - up from a D to B. I think he will do even better in his January mock exam. Thank you very much.
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Anna
I was faced with the scary prospect that my daughter was about to ruin her chances of medical school by her poor performance in economics . Mark very calmly professionally took her through each topic , providing her with excellent work sheets , and making economics "make sense" . He taught her by challenging her to think and make the links . His years of experience in tutoring and being an examiner is invaluable to assisting her to answer exam style questions effectively . What is amazing within 2 lessons her ability to understand concepts improved significant .We were worried about using skype , but it has worked brilliantly . If you can book him ,do immediately !
