I am a professional full-time Economics/Business, Accounting & Finance and Maths tutor at all levels (Primary, Secondary, GCSE, A-Level, IB, Degree, Masters and Professional Levels).
My qualifications include A-Level Maths and Economics, a Degree in Economics & Business and I am an ACA Chartered Accountant.
Whether it be continuous support throughout the year, or purely exam preparation, I ensure students can more fully understand the subject and, crucially, get top grades. I am very aware that the priority is ultimately achieving the right result/grade for the student.
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.
I serve all inner London areas throughout the week and weekends, daytime or evening - at no extra travel cost.
I also offer online classes and I use the latest equipment and software to deliver the best learning experience possible.
Having tutored for several years, I am familiar with all major exam boards (Edexcel, OCR, AQA, MEI, CIE, IB, ISEB) and for University level, the general structure/format of exams that institutions typically set. I am also fully proficient with the ACA (having studied it myself), ACCA and CIMA qualifications.
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.
"At the outset, it was clear that David is very professional and organised. He made a study plan at the start that suited my son's needs and proceeded to offer well structured and clear sessions. It was also great that he would plan and set homework, and mark it for free." ★★★★★ Andrew - GCSE Maths
"Isabella's mock exam grade was pretty horrific, so David's help was very welcome. He was understanding, patient and able to boost her grade beyond what we expected" ★★★★★ Christina - GCSE Maths
"Great tutor - David has been able to help lift my son's grade to what he needed for his chosen University - such a relief and we are so grateful" ★★★★★ Faisal - A-Level Economics
"I was seriously worried about not passing my accounting modules as I'd just never been able to get my head around it. David helped me build my knowledge from the ground up, nail the fundamentals and move on to the higher mark stuff." ★★★★★ Jess - University Accounting
"It seems David's advices to James about how to approach revision and exams as a whole, have not only helped him improve in Maths (the subject we employed him to teach) but in virtually all of his subjects. He's being much more methodical and motivated across the board" ★★★★★ Charlotte - GCSE Maths
"Josh's attitude began to improve after the first session. Very impressive and we look forward to continued improvements" ★★★★★ Alex - A-Level Economics
