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 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 been teaching accounting and finance courses for last twenty five years. The subjects which I teach are :
(a) Corporate Finance, (b) Financial Accounting, (c) Managerial Accounting, (d) Investment Management,
(e) Security Analysis and Portfolio Management, (f) International Finance, (g) Project Finance, and (h) Derivatives.
I teach in student friendly language and help my students learn calculative finance in step by step manner. This helps them in scoring good grades in their exams and assignments.
Basis my academic and teaching credentials Tata McGraw Hill Education, India has appointed me as subject matter matter expert for Accounting and Finance courses of MBA program.
I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Economics department at the School of Business and Economics in Loughborough University, supporting undergraduate-level first-year modules namely Principles of Macroeconomics and Quantitative Economics.
The modules I support are mainly classroom-based tutorials, with 20 students per class, and generally focused around problem-based question sets.
Some details of my previous experience:
Tutor for Principles of Macroeconomics (Academic year 2016/17). Responsible for teaching six tutorial groups of around 20 students per group. Total teaching load of 40 hours.
Tutor for Principles of Macroeconomics and Quantitative Economics (Academic Year 2017/18). Responsible for teaching ten tutorial groups of around 20 students per group. Total teaching load of 80 hours.
I have lots of tutoring experience online and in the classroom. I have delivered online courses as well as revision workshops in A-level economics and business. I have also worked with some undergraduate students, helping to prepare them for end of module exams. Tutoring online and in person is a good method of boosting performance on exams. Students benefit from the opportunity to review the content and deepen their understanding of the topic, this generally improves memory and as a result students always do better with tuition.
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 am an experienced psychology teacher and a qualified teacher of Further Education in the UK and I really love my subject. I have been teaching psychology at A - Level and IB curriculum at two highly rated independent schools in Hampshire and in September 2019 I start working as a part-time psychology teacher in a highly acclaimed independent boarding school in Surrey. I have taught AQA , Edexcel and IB curriculum and that is why I know what is required to achieve the high standard at A-Level in studying psychology and what knowledge and skills are essential for obtaining excellent exam results. I can help with essay writing and research methods up to graduate level as it was a part of my psychology and MA Ed studies.
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.
I have been tutoring face to face and online for 2 years. I have tutored a range of subjects including English, Maths, Science, Business and Geography from ages 5-18 years old.
I develop connection with the students. I make effort to resolve the students' problems even outside the tutoring sessions.
