This is how 2 referees rated George:
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 10th year of full time teaching, after previously working for JPMorgan in London. This combination of real world experience and teaching practise helps greatly in engaging students. I am fully aware of all the recent changes to specifications and examinations and the challenges they pose. With two years of work to pull together, for the three papers in the Summer which comprise the final A Level qualification, time is now of the essence.
I hold an Economics BA (Hons) 2:1 degree from The University of Sheffield and a PGCE (Teaching Qualification) in Economics and Business Studies from The University of Manchester.
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.
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 2017 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 was one of the subjects to switch from September 2015. As an active A Level teacher I have first hand experience of the new Linear courses having taught and tutored students for the first set of examinations of the new format in the summer of 2017. 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 is more challenging, making tuition and especially an early start even more important than ever. A solid base in the first year is essential for successful progression in the more challenging second year.
