Information About Andrew - Sutton Coldfield tutor - (30 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Andrew:
I live in Sutton Coldfield and work in Birmingham. I have been teaching over 12 years and also work for three major exam boards. I have a current and up to date DBS as required in the profession. I have a passion for teaching and love my job. My aim is to inspire students to attain the most they possibly can and believe in good value for money. My A level results for Economics are currently for both AS and A2, in the top 10% and above for the country and I demand the highest standards from my students. I would describe myself as honest and reliable and am happy to provide references and evidence of any professional concern you may have. I offer full and ongoing support to my students and have a wide range of materials to support their learning based upon my my professional and examination work. I have an excellent feedback record and plan to keep it that way by offering the best possible service.
I am experienced as a one to one tutor and have also had a great deal of success over Skype. I offer discounted rates for group Skype sessions which, although most people are skeptical at first, (me included!) have been very successful and offer an alternative to one to one lessons
I currently Head of Department at a high achieving, selective girls grammar in Birmingham. I teach all the A level courses including economics and business. I work for three major exam boards, CIE international for GCSE and AS papers, (Econ) OCR AS and AQA for A2. In addition I have experience of tutoring all exam boards at both AS and A2 and have tutored first year undergraduates from the University of Aston.
I have over 13 years of teaching experience and have worked with two or more exam boards for 8 years. I am a very experienced teacher and tutor.
Each individual has different needs. Tutoring is a individual student orientated service. Firstly we would identify the desired outcomes of the tuition sessions and how we can achieve those outcomes. Depending on the individual this may mean starting by revising work that has been covered at school over a period of time but not understood or it could be regular support with work that is currently being covered. In my experience exam preparation and technique is of vital importance and I aim to teach students to maximise their individual grade potential through knowledge of the exam, it is important that a student is well prepared going into an examination.
I am also now offering a 50% discount of my one to one fee for group Skype lessons. This is an affordable and innovative way to gain reduced rate access to a qualified professional and experienced examiner. During these sessions I will guide students through exam technique and how to answer questions from an examiners perspective giving students the opportunity to develop and hone their examination skills. In addition theory will be covered upon request and there will be an opportunity to ask questions in and after the session. If you email me we ca discuss this further and establish your needs.

We have found Andrew to be very approachable. He has always been on time for the Skype sessions. Always patient and always encouraging to our son. Our son has finished each lesson with renewed focus for the week ahead and has enjoyed the one-to-one time. In particular, the lessons have been collaborative with our son and not simply all about Andrew delivering facts. Andrew has enabled our son to structure his work more clearly than he would have otherwise been able to. His use of Skype is very effective utilising instant message facility during the course of the sessions. In addition to this Andrew has sent frequent e-mails to support the set work each week and has always been responsive to queries which have arisen between lessons.
All in all, a very positive experience. I would highly recommend him to any Economics student.
Just to update Arjun has got admission in his first choice Uni and subject .
Thanks again for the help
My son has just achieved an A* Grade at A Level in Business Studies which he is extremely pleased about. Andy was a huge source of support and help and I would thoroughly recommend him as a tutor
All in all, my brother has enjoyed being tutored by Andy and will continue with him for A2 next academic year.
Thank you Andy.
would not hesitate in recommending Andrew as a tutor.
