As one of London’s most sought after exam experts I am often asked by families to help their children improve their exam technique & revision methods in the months before the summer exams.
I am one of the most experienced Economics and Business Studies tutors in London, having first trained as a teacher when I left university and I have now helped in excess of 600 students.
In my tutoring and coaching I apply the principles of effective learning, using my own “learn to learn programme”. Every student that I coach has the option of incorporating these revision strategies that I use to complement the work that they are already doing in school and at home. In my experience students often come to me when they do not fully appreciate or understand how to learn effectively. My “learn-to-learn” programme focuses students in being more effective in their planning and preparation for their exams.
I am currently tutoring in GCSE and A Level Economics and Business Studies (AQA and Edexcel for both Economics and Business). I mark exam papers for Economics and Business studies so can easily tailor your specific tutoring requirements to the exam requirements.
In my experience it is important to focus on these three main areas:
1) Knowledge improvement
Before any session takes place I would prefer to meet the parents and students and to assess their current academic level. It’s important to set expectations and to continually measure performance from the start. From here we would then be able to review and recap on the most important and common themes.
2) Regular review & performance appraisals
I am one of London's leading exam technique experts and as such I am able to focus specifically on the exam skills that so many students miss out on. Given that the grade boundaries are so close it is important to focus on the specific exam skills in our sessions.
3) Learning to Learn
Almost every student that I work with has not been shown the specific ways in which they can improve their learning. Years of academic research have shown that when students understand their learning style then they are able to engage with their work far more effectively. I’ll help you assess your learning style and then apply my 4 learning methods to improve your revision.
