I am a retired teacher with over 35 years of experience in both teaching and examining Economics and Business Studies. I have a very strong record of improving the final grades, usually to an A or A*, of those I have tutored over the past few years. I am happy to run sessions at my home, at the tutee's house or using Skype. My experience of working with four different examination boards is one of the major reasons why students benefit so much from my help.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I have a very wide range of teaching styles and choose the one that I feel best helps my students. We are all individuals and therefore we all learn in a different way. Equally, my style of teaching focuses on the needs of my students which could mean focusing on one or many of the most common demands: building knowledge, analysis, application, evaluation,improving examination techniques, using case studies properly and\or essay writing. My knowledge of all three main examination boards has really helped a large number of my tutees over the years.

What qualifications do you have?

Certificate in Education in Economics and Business(QTS) BA (Hons) Economics MA (Economics and Business) Teaching

Tell us about your experience...

Forty years of teaching Economics and Business Subjects at A level both in the UK and abroad. Not only do I really understand Economics and Business but I know how to help you achieve high grades. I have been an exam question setter for two examination boards so I have a really good understanding of how to answer questions so you can get high marks. I have tutored the new specifications in OCR, AQA and Edexcel and so far the results have far exceeded initial target grades.

What locations do you tutor in?

Within 20 miles of Rotherham, South Yorkshire and increasingly popular online vis Skype.

What is your personal message to students?

A tutor can really make a difference to your final grade. Not by replacing your existing teacher(s) but by adding to what they very often cannot do. I can fill those gaps especially in written work. I will give you the feedback, not only on what was wrong or right with an assignment but much more importantly, how to improve it for the next one. Teachers do not have time for this individual development as they are too busy, but I can. This takes a lot of real experience which I have and you can be certain that I can make a difference.
