Tutoring Approach

Having 20 years of commercial experience in senior management positions in finance, accounting and marketing departments, I can based teaching of business and economics theory of real life and recent scenarios in many large and international UK businesses.
I am passionate and personally captivated by current business affairs and global economic issues. All of my education, from A level Economics, my First Class finance degree, Chartered Accountant training and my PhD in Finance exemplifies how I have excelled in these subjects consistently.
I love teaching and explaining my knowledge to adolescents and receive a deep sense of personal and professional satisfaction from seeing the 'light bulb' moment when a student really understands an issue and is excited him/herself about this! I relish the hard task of differentiating to each students particular strengths and weaknesses and use a range of teaching techniques that enable ALL students to achieve their personal best.
