I have retired from teaching Business and Economics and I am looking to use my expertise to improve the exam grades of students. I have experience of this as I have raised exam grades significantly in those schools where I have taught. A significant benefit I bring to the teaching of Business, in particular, is my extensive working background in management for a variety of organisations in the public and private sectors.
I have taught for 12 years, the last five as Head of Business and Economics. In that role I was responsible for significantly raising standards in all the subjects for which I have been responsible. I have taught Business / Applied Business at both GCSE and A level and I have taught Economics at A level. I have taught the Edexcel, WJEC, OCR and AQA exam syllabuses and so I have a wide experience of what examiners are looking for.
I have had a very successful first five year's tutoring, with most students improving their exam results significantly. I have testimonials and parent contacts to prove this. The purpose of my tutoring is to ensure that students gain better exam results than they would have done through their lessons alone. It is not my intention to repeat the lessons which students have studied in class but instead to clarify the understanding of topics, which students have found difficult. My major focus will be on improving the analysis of exam case studies and the application of good exam technique, using techniques which I will teach and certain specialised memory tricks. My assistance will involve the practising of exam questions by tutees, guidance on improvement and the provision of model answers. Please note I charge £5/£10 per hour extra for tutoring in students' homes up to 10/20 miles and I do not cover Liverpool.
