I am a full time Professional Tutor who has been teaching for eight years. Passion, Energy and Patience with a strategic approach is what I would describe my teaching style. As a person I am a very calm and patient individual with good listening skills. I gain great satisfaction from seeing my students get exceptional results, as a result of their hard work and my guidance.

My aim is to inspire every student i teach while instilling confidence in their academic ability, this intern leads to a high quality learning experience for my tutees. I specialise in Exam Technique Methods as part of the overall teaching process.

Having been an examiner for both Edexcel and AQA i am aware of what the examiners look for when marketing exams.

I also teach the following exam boards: [ EDEXCEL, AQA, OCR, IB, JEB, CIE, WJEC]

Tutoring Experience

I started tutoring with a few students, overtime I have taught in excess of 350 students.
Teaching gives me great satisfaction as i see my students progress from our first lesson to our last.

All my past and present students have all had different learning abilities allowing me as a tutor to develop along the way.
Therefore each lesson is specifically tailored to meet the needs of the tutee and his/her learning style.

On average (90-95%) of my students have gone onto achieve an (A*/A) within their overall A-level grade.

I also act as a student mentor/ performance coach for all students i teach to help increase overall academic performance which translates into higher grades.

Tutoring Approach

I am very passionate about the subjects i teach and feel that by instilling the same amount of passion and interest for the student goes a long way when aiming for the top grades.

Taking a structured approach in my teaching method gives the student clarity, especially when revising for exams.
Learning and revision are both a simultaneous process and I practice that from my first lesson with each student.

I adapt my teaching style to individual needs as that is the best-proven way to enhance learning.
Therefore each lesson is tailored to the student taking into consideration their strengths and weaknesses.

Before the first lesson I aim to have a conversation with the student or parent over the phone to first
discuss what the student is finding difficult in the subject and overall what outcome the parent/ student are looking for.

Economics can be a very enjoyable subject if taught in the correct way. Therefore I thoroughly prepare my students beyond the scope of the specification or exam board they may be sitting.

As a tutor I bring with me a variety of RESOURCES which have proven to be useful with my past and current students.

  • BANK OF DEFINITIONS;which is related to each exam board to allow my students to gain those extra marks in
    each exam, which in turn will mean forsaking unnecessary time in note taking.

  • MODEL ANSWERS; each exam tends to have an essay question, for which I intend to teach students
    how to answer by allowing them to form their own model answer.

  • EXAM TECHNIQUE; All my notes that i provide emphasize the importance of exam technique and how to answer short
    and long essay questions.

  • REVISION TECHNIQUE; I teach my students in a thorough yet concise manner, whereby they are able to grasp the topic
    in question utilising one or two methods.

  • LESSON NOTES AND REVISION NOTES;I provide all my students with notes therefore allowing them to focus their time
    on exam questions.

  • QUESTION BANK; I have a database of all questions, which relate to each topic from various exam boards including
    Edexcel,OCR, IB, AQA.

  • HOMEWORK; at the end of each lesson I give homework to my students which can consist of a mini topic test or a set of
    questions related to the topic learnt.

  • CONTACT; Learning is not just limited to our lesson, i am always available to my tutees throughout the day via email,
    text and phone call.

My aim is to help the student achieve the highest grade possible whilst instilling greater understanding in the subject. After teaching many students i have seen, everyone has the ability in achieving an A* however many students do not have the guidance required or in some cases cannot pin point why they not able to see the progress.

As a full time tutor my only commitment is my students and I give my utmost time and effort to all my students.

Please feel free to message me if you have any further questions as I will endeavor to answer them.
