Personal Description:

I am currently Head of Economics at a private sixth form college, where I teach A Level Economics, concentrating on results. I have extensive experience across all the main three exam boards: Edexcel, AQA and OCR. I am now in my 9th year of full time teaching, after previously working for JPMorgan in London. This combination of real world experience and teaching practice helps greatly in engaging students.

I hold an Economics degree from The University of Sheffield and a PGCE (Teaching Qualification) in Economics and Business Studies from The University of Manchester. I currently live and teach in city centre Manchester. I live 5mins from deansgate so it's easy for the tram/trains.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach a full range of students and know equally how to move a student from a D/E to a A/B. Whilst having the depth of knowledge and technique to stretch an A student to a confident A*. This comes from having a full Economics degree and teaching the subject day to day.

Additionally I am an examiner for Edexcel Economics A Level, this gives me a thorough understanding of what the exam boards are looking for in candidate responses.

Tutoring Approach:

Concentration on exam technique and preparation. I am used to working with individual students to help them understand difficult concepts and fulfill their potential. I link Economic theory to real world events, making the subject come alive.

In the Summer 2016 exam series all my students were successful in achieving their goals.

This year sees the continuing change over to linear 2 yr A Levels. Economics is one of the subjects to switch from September 2015. As an active A Level teacher I am ready and prepared for the new specification and assessment. There is also the complication that many schools are entering their students for the stand alone AS qualification. If you are struggling with Economics, don't fall into the trap of thinking that everything will necessarily fall into place in the second year. The new qualification will be more challenging, making tuition and especially an early start even more important than ever.

With resits, legacy specs and new courses individual attention is essential, this is the biggest shakeup for 15 years. Additionally if you are studying independently after not reaching your potential in this year's AS/A2, there will be papers for your legacy specification. Therefore this Summer you have one last chance to use any existing AS/A2 units you have and complete any necessary re-sits. So the introduction of the new linear format won't affect you doing a further year before moving on to university, however this summer is your last chance !
