I have been part of the teaching team in the UK's second largest Business, Accounting and Economics department for 13 years. I am head of Business courses with an average of over business students per year passing through the department. As such I have been able to teach students with a very wide range of abilities and needs.
I am a fully qualified Assistant Examiner for the Edexcel and AQA exam boards allowing me to fully appreciate what examiners are looking for and how they award marks.
As well as this I am a speaker at the Tutor2u National Revision Conferences for A level Business for improving student engagement. I have also recently presented on their "The Best Business Lesson Ever'
I'm a specialist in my subject with a proven track record of outstanding results. I have a higher degree and PGCE qualification from the Institute of Education, London; Above all I am passionate and enthusiastic my subject and my student's achievements.

16 years teaching experience - I'm Head of Business, Economics and Accounting at the outstanding school in Oadby, 14 years at a WQE , specialist sixth form college; 3 years at Ashby Grammar School, a Secondary Grammar School
I love teaching and I love my subject. I build good relationships with my students and help them individually to gain the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary for success - read my student testimonials :-)
I have a personality and a sense of humour! but mature, professional and experienced enough to know that without decent exam results your future options are very limited; my teaching style reflects that and as such ofsted graded my observed lessons as “outstanding”
Because I work in a specialist sixth form college I know what is expected by examiners. I am indeed an examiner in my own right. This expertise is of direct help to my students in their classes but also to anyone I tutor privately.
There is a strong emphasis on thorough preparation for examinations. I will set work frequently which I will mark accurately and timely together with constructive written feedback.
I can help you develop in a variety of ways:
Expand your subject knowledge in Business Studies
Personalised revision planning before examinations
Help you catch up if you have missed lessons on your course
General study skills and getting organised
Give feedback on work you have completed before submission
Set and mark work as practice examinations
Get in touch, I'm happy to answer any questions and discuss to ensure we come up with the best options for you
