As a senior examiner for OCR AS and A Level Business I have over eight years experience in marking A Level papers and know what the examiners are looking for when awarding marks for analysis and evaluation and can pass on this knowledge and help you build the skills in order for you gain to the higher grades. I will tutor on line or in person. I have a 100% pass rate at A2 Level and regularly have students achieving the higher grades of A and A*.
Both as an experienced Lecturer and examiner I have taken part in Continued Professional Developing on the new A Level specification. With so few practice papers available on the new specification you will have the advantage of my experience as an examiner to guide you through the process on just what the examiner is looking for when awarding marks. Exam technique is just as important as the knowledge and understanding of the subject and I can provide you with all of this in order for you to reach the higher grades when sitting your exams.
With over 15 years experience lecturing in A Level Business and Economics my knowledge of the subject is extensive. Having taught all modules on the subject means that students will receive a well rounded approach to Business Studies.
As well as teaching the subject I am also a Senior Examiner for OCR - marking both AS and A2 papers in Business Studies. Therefore you will not only receive the knowledge and understanding it takes to answer the questions you will also be taught just how to answer the questions in order for you to reach the higher levels of analysis and evaluation allowing you to gain the higher grades and gain a place at university or land that dream job!
I have also worked for the Cambridge Professional Academy, tutoring, mentoring and marking the Chartered Institute of Marketing Professional Certificate and Diploma. I also mark for the Cambridge International Exam board with students coming from China, UAE, India and across Europe.
I have always approached my teaching with a sense of humour and believe that I have the best students!! If you enjoy what you are doing then you are normally very good at it - equally, if you are good at something it is because you enjoy it!! I love my subject with a passion and there is nothing better than being involved in such an important part of a person's life, knowing that I have had a part in shaping their future is just the best feeling ever - especially when they get in touch to tell you about their first job or their results from university.
Gaining that mutual respect is key to teaching and, forming a relationship with your students means that you know how to get the best from them in order for them to achieve the results that they are looking for.
The first lesson will be free in order to find out your needs and then we will work together in order to meet the agreed objectives. By getting to know you and finding out what your strengths and areas for improvements are will mean that I will be able to get the best from you and get you to where you want to be!l
There is a minimum of an eight hour contract. Lessons will then be tailored to suit the students unique circumstances, ability and learning objectives. Each student will be given a Scheme of Work to cover the period of study, giving structure to the lessons and allowing the student to continue studying in their own time, even after the lessons have been completed. I will invoice you each time we have completed two lessons so that the cost is spread out for you.
My flexible approach, combined with my engaging and personable character have allowed me to succeed in helping students significantly improve their academic performance.
