I am a 34 year old Business Studies Teacher with 7 years experience of successfully teaching GCSE and A Level Business Studies. I worked in industry for a large pharmaceutical firm before starting my career in education as a Learning Support Assistant. After doing this for two and a half years I gained a place on a PGCE at Edge Hill and have never looked back. I am a keen sportsman and enjoy healthy competition which is something that drives me to encourage and support my students in succeeding to the best of their ability. I have recently become a Father to a baby girl which is something I am absolutely loving and can't wait to discuss Business Studies with her!
I have taught Business Studies at GCSE, A Level and BTEC to a range of abilities. I have worked in both challenging schools and in high achieving schools. I spent 3 years as a Head of Year in Berkshire before returning to teach in the North West. I am fully up to date with all new specifications and currently teach the new AQA specifications at GCSE and A Level.
I am a very approachable, calm and supportive teacher and this would be my approach to tutoring. I believe you get the best out of students by letting them take some ownership over their learning. With this in mind, I would adapt my teaching style and approach to sessions based purely on the individual and their needs.
