With over thirty five years experience as a teacher, working for the University of Sheffield and four examination boards I can really help you to raise your grade. With a BA , BSc, MA and Cert. Ed I am very well qualified which is why so many of my tutees make such good progress.. Being quick to analyse problems that students are encountering I am very effective in helping my tutees raise their target grade. I get on really well with my students which is important to ensuring their success. As a tutor who is very involved with Economics and Business Studies I am able to teach using highly relevant modern cases studies, data and theory. I am a very patient tutor who is reliable, punctual, has considerable experience and is an excellent listener.

Tutoring Experience

With over thirty five years experience of tutoring, teaching and examining Economics and Business Studies I have a great deal of experience to offer. Having written A level questions for several exam boards, I am fully aware of what AQA, Edexcel and OCR are looking for to award high final grades. Having successfully taught in many types of secondary schools from GCSE to A level has allowed me to have helped a very wide range of students with differing abilities and needs. I also tutored Economics at The University of Sheffield as well as being an Advisor on the teaching of Economics working with the Malaysian Government. Currently I work for the OCR examination board and have extensive experience of tutoring Edexcel and AQA. In Ofsted type assessments my teaching has been rated as outstanding and pupils have also been highly positive and enthusiastic about Business Studies and Economics.

Tutoring Approach

Breaking topics into manageable sections and involving my pupils in the teaching and learning process allows for quick progress towards better grades. I pay great attention to examination technique and practice giving detailed feedback to my students so that they are able to understand how to achieve those higher final grades. My aim is always to provide the best for my students and the feedback from parents and students makes it clear that my approach does make a positive significant difference.
