Gateshead Business Related and Computer Studies / I.T. Tutor

A monthly retainer package is available for £395, see below for details.

Hi, I'm Ed. I am an award-nominated senior lecturer at Northumbria University and a regular writer/reviewer for the British Academy of Management. I have a PhD in Networked Innovation and have presented research at several national and international management events. I've been nominated for teaching awards every year of my career, including for 'Best Supervisor' & 'Best Assessment & feedback’.

Tutoring Experience

I teach management, with specific expertise in strategic management, international business and entrepreneurship, delivering lectures and seminars at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. My dissertation experience covers multiple business-disciplines, therefore I'm happy to tutor students outside of my direct area of expertise.

I rarely take new students, but a vacancy has recently become available. I offer a 200% money-back guarantee, if you aren’t happy with your first session I’ll give double your money back.

I can sit here all day and brag about my work, but it’s easier to just let others do the job for me!
Below are examples of people liking my thesis supervision, lectures, seminars and assignment support:

“In addition to delivering an excellent module with a business simulation, Ed has also helped students otherwise by giving them relevant information needed about the Business Clinic. I have known him through my undergraduate course as well from when I did the consultancy project then and he was very supportive then as well. He has also given helpful advice when it came to choosing my next steps after completing uni.” Fauhan, Newcastle upon Tyne

“Ed Cottam is flawless in his field and I am really very impressed by his ideas and teaching style.” Northumbria University student

“Always helpful and supportive. Has an open door policy to his office which is useful.” Northumbria University student

I’ve received prestigious teaching awards and nominations every year of my career, including:

•British Academy of Marketing ‘Teaching Excellence’ Award 2018
•British Academy of Management ‘Highly Commended’ Award 2017
•7 consecutive Student led teaching award nominations (2012; 2013; 2014; 2015; 2016; 2017; 2018)

Tutoring Approach

Firstly, I like to assess my students' career ambitions and personal goals. I need to know how to motivate each of my pupils individually and deeply understand their desired outcome. Furthermore, I appreciate successful tutorship is about communicating with the parent, just as much as with the student, so I'm available for progress reports via phone or email whenever requested.
