I have been teaching Economics, Statistics and Econometrics since I was in college. After leaving college, I became a full-time professional tutor. I have worked with students who were complete beginners, as well as those who were facing challenges in mastering advanced topics.
I completely understand the initial struggle in decoding the concepts and formulas. I am adept in breaking down these concepts so that students can understand them. I use simple examples so that students can make sense of these topics. I don't encourage memorization and simply recalling the formulas, instead, I focus on the 'why' and 'how'.
I understand that every student has a different way of understanding things. Some students understand the concepts when explained through analogies, others when shown mathematical foundation behind them. I modify my teaching methodology depending on what the student is comfortable with.
I have 8 years of on-ground teaching experience. Since last two years, I have teaching Economics, Statistics and Econometrics online.
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.

I have several years of experience lecturing in economics at a leading UK university, and have PhD, MSc and BSc (Hons.) degrees in economics. I have been a professional tutor since 2014, during which time I have had the pleasure of working one-on-one with many students to develop their understanding of their course material, as well as their academic study skills. I am an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy which reflects my commitment to honing my own teaching abilities.
I appreciate that every student has their own strengths and preferred method of learning. As such, I take the time to understand the needs of each of my students and adapt my tutoring approach as appropriate. I aim to develop my students’ confidence by encouraging them to share their knowledge and experience. I strive to provide intuitive explanations of complex topics, while making sure students do not neglect the important details nor lose sight of the bigger picture.
My passion for the subjects I teach helps make my lessons engaging and keeps the student enthused. My experience as an examiner puts me in a good position to advise on exam skills.
I have strong academic credentials; I have authored peer-reviewed economics research and I have been invited to present my research by universities across Economics. I have provided econometrics consultancy to UK government departments.
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.

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!
I have been tutoring Economics at my university since the start of 2017. As my students come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, I have learned to explain concepts in multiple ways, to help each student understand the concepts in a way that makes sense and is relevant to them. In 2019, I was promoted to Head Tutor for Economics at my university.
I also have experience marking university-level economics tests and assignments and can assist students in refining their answering techniques, as well as with the examined content.
