An honours graduate in business studies from University College Dublin, I have spent most of my working life in business in the UK. For many years I have been a director of a number of companies active in project development in the hospitality sector; I am currently getting to grips with setting up a number of online sustainable business activities. I now largely work from home and this allows me to be reasonably flexible about arranging tutoring times to suit your convenience.
For a number of years, before the pressures of business required me to take a break, I taught economics and statistics to adults, mainly on professional courses, though also to A Level and undergraduate students. I also have some experience of teaching on vocational courses, in primary schools and to adults who have the wish to gain qualifications, often a long number of years after leaving school.
My approach to tutoring is very "real world", as you might expect after many successful years in business where producing actual results to demanding deadlines is the norm. I know from my experience with tutoring to different age groups that the key is having all the patience that is necessary to sort the basics - thereafter my students tend to fly independently and go from strength to strength as they build their knowledge and understanding of their own accord.
