I passionately believe in students achieving their potential and enjoy the role of personal tutoring to further aid students learning. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Business and Economics (2:1) and have worked for a number of large organisations offering a variety of depth and experience. Online tutoring is about helping students form around the world to access education via the platform of the internet, to help them succeed at their studies. Firstly, I like to make an initial meeting to understand the needs and objectives of the personal tutoring before developing a detailed plan of the outline of personal tutoring support. I am keen to ensure that both parents and students alike are happy with the service and will accommodate additional requests. I like to ensure that the learner is both enthused and engaged in the tutoring sessions and have a range of resources and assessment techniques.
Subjects and levels taught:
Economics: A Level and GCSE (Pearson, AQA and OCR)
Business Studies: A Level and GCSE (Pearson, AQA, OCR and WJEC)
BTEC Business: Level 2 and Level 3
Cambridge Technicals: Level 2 and Level 3
I have worked in the commercial business world and gained experience before moving into my passion for teaching. I want to concentrate on turning students I Can't statements into I Can, I believe that everyone has the potential to achieve they just need the correct guidance and that all important Mindset. Each student is different and gains the knowledge and understanding in different ways, as a tutor it is my job to find that way and release that potential.
My approach to teaching is to find the right method for the student. I believe each student has their own style of learning and we need to harness that style in order to succeed. I discuss the needs of the student and then assess the ability through a test. From the results I create a individual learning plan, using this plan we work together to find the best learning style ( practical, theory based, written, spoken, mix of styles) to turn the student from a knowledge and understanding into a expert and evaluator. I aim to have my students having a positive growth mindset and leave saying I Can do that!
I have over 10 years of tutoring experience.
Having tutored for several years, I am familiar with all major exam boards (Edexcel, OCR, AQA, CIE, IB,) and for University level, the general structure/format of exams that institutions typically set. I employ a pragmatic style that really delivers results and I generally look to improve grades by at least 2-grade boundaries, with the majority of my students receiving the top grade possible.
Furthermore, while many tutors may very well offer tuition regarding the material - I also pride myself on being able to help students with the other, less tangible skills required such as Exam technique and, crucially, Confidence. I feel this adds a huge amount of value and can impact grades significantly given the "it's how you perform on the day" factor. For those students who are at all panicked, nervous or worried by looming exams, I will ensure that this is no longer an issue by exam day.
I have already had multiple happy clients in previous tutoring roles, who helped to take that step up from B to A* or D to B. I undertook my teacher training (PGCE) at the UCL Institute of Education, the number 1 teacher training course in the world. I have worked throughout the East of England, in London, and at Abbey College International school in Cambridge. In addition, I am a current examiner for A level economics for a popular exam board. These experiences allow me to guarantee you an experience tailored to your needs. I use past paper training and exam technique to maximise your ability to perform under pressure.
Firstly, it is crucial with exam based subjects that a tutee should target qualified teachers (with QTS) as they have conversed with the current changes that have taken place with GCSE and A-Levels. They are aware of syllabus amendments and have a range of tools to support how to interpret command verbs within the exam.
I am a qualified teacher (with QTS) that has over 10 years leading several departments in Computing, Business, ICT and Design across a range of qualifications and exam boards. As a result of this and exam board work (working as an exam marker), I feel I understand what is required to pass the exams.
The exam board experience stems over a range of exam boards (OCR, Pearsons, AQA and CIE) completing a variety of roles, from verifying coursework to exam marking and leading exam markers.
Both teaching and exam board commitments compliment each other, seeing the teaching misconceptions and to get the exam marks, with great success in my teaching.
I have a good understanding of assessment needs to qualify for the higher Level questions in exam papers which have proven successful (primarily focusing on the command verbs in the question) which can be a focus within the online lessons.
My qualifications are backed by 20 years of accounting practice in the private sector, local government and not-for-profit-making organisations, 15 years lecturing and tutoring experience in further education, and also in training corporates.
I have taught in various Colleges that include: Southwark College, London College UCK, and DPskills. I also have extensive experience private online and face-to-face tutoring.
My work experience as a professional accountant enables me to transfer knowledge tom learners in the form of practical skills, methods and techniques. My experience enables me to help learners to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and practical work experience.
I am also an experienced exam Marker and Examiner, and thus am able to help students to appreciate what examiners are looking for in examinations.
Over the years, I have received , and taught students that were awarded top student Awards.
I have been associated with finance and actuarial professions for over 15 years and self-studied for these qualifications while working full time.
Whilst working in financial services I provided training on various topics, conducted mentoring sessions and explained complex financial concepts to multiple stakeholders.
I am tutoring undergrad /post-grad students of Accountancy and Finance and also teaching MBA and Professional level students.
I look forward to be your tutor!
I am focused and driven; I tutored for Kaplan Test Prep for 20-years serving 10,000 students. My students dominate exams; I am very excited for them and for the opportunities that lay ahead of them!!
Over the past 15 years, I have been helping students with their studies in Economics, Finance, Statistics, and other Business-related subjects, primarily at the university level. Moreover, I have had extensive experience in thesis writing and assignment supervision, research guidance as well as academic writing. During this time, my zeal, in-depth knowledge and overall tutoring skills have enabled me to develop a good reputation, thus having a consistent and loyal base of students on a weekly basis.
