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.

Economics: A Level and GCSE (Pearson, AQA and OCR)

Trevor's last review in A Level Business Studies from Julie: Building confidence and "I can do this" approach in my son - making such a difference! thank you
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!

Nicola's last review in A Level Business Studies from jackie: Business knowledge and exam techniques really good and helpful
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.

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.

My mission as a tutor is to positively motivate students to achieve. As such I stay attuned to each students’ needs and tailor lessons as needed. To this aim, I incorporate technology (online/blended learning tools) and use a variety of up to date learning materials. These materials include academic and mainstream readings, as well as media (podcast, documentaries, etc.…). I have over ten years of experience teaching and tutoring private clients and large groups ranging from school age to IB, to the university level. Subjects I've tutored include English, business subjects, anthropology, geography, public and interpersonal communications, and academic/professional writing on various.
U. Ejiro's last completed A Level Business Studies job with Alasdair: 1-2 hrs/week - General help
I have lots of experience tutoring online and in the classroom. My students benefit mostly from lessons where we focus on literacy including; definition of key terms, linking case studies to theory and redrafting answers to essay questions. Students benefit from the opportunity to interrogate different command terms so as to really understand what the question requires. I have delivered online courses as well as revision classes and workshops in A-level economics and business. I have also worked with undergraduate students, helping to prepare them for end of module exams in business and economics. As a qualified teacher I have taught for more than 5 years across a range of qualifications in GCSE, A-level and IB Business and Economics .
I have been teaching A level Business and Economics for the past 19 years. I worked at a boarding school with some overseas students, so I have worked a lot with pupils who speak English as a second language. There was also a wide ability range, so I supported the most able students to apply to read Economics at Oxbridge, whilst also helping other students with less ambitious objectives. It has always been my belief that all students deserve the opportunity to fulfil their potential. I have been an A level examiner for AQA Business and Economics in the past.
We all learn at our best when we feel supported as well as challenged. I understand how examiners award marks and I enjoy showing students how they can use their subject knowledge to best advantage to acquire the available marks. Modern technology has revolutionised online tutoring and my tuition sessions are very interactive and show that learning can be fun!
Paul's last completed A Level Business Studies job with Ollie: Intensive - I am looking for someone to give me intensive tutoring in the weeks leading up to my AQA Business Studies exams. I would like help with topics in the second book as well as exam technique in general.
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.
Luke's last completed A Level Business Studies job with Zoe: 1-2 hrs/week - Hi, I am looking for a tutor for my son (age 17, Yr 13) who is taking AQA Level 3 Applied General Business. He needs help primarily with the coursework side of things, understanding how to complete the templates most effectively and then more generally for the final exam at the end. Ideally we are looking for someone who has direct experience with this course (& the coursework involved) rather than a general business studies tutor (although I know the same business 'concepts' apply). Please let me know if you are able to help. Thanks.
