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.
Afiya's last completed GCSE Economics job with Runa: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter has her GHCSE economics(OCR) exam coming up very soon. In all other subjects she has been predicted 8 or 9 however in Economics a 5 or 6 so we just wanted to give her a last minute boost (including in confidence), She knows her stuff a bit too well and goes off in tangents rather than simply answering the question. I think 3-4 hours will make the world of difference.
I have studied a BA in PPE, and also have an MA in Politics as well as an MSc in Economics. I have a knack for grinding down on complex problems until they look easy, and I love doing this with students and watching how things start to make sense to them. As regards language teaching: I am a German native speaker. What I think is even more important, though, is that I have learned several languages, both in school, but also since, in my free time (including French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian), so I am well aware of how students learn languages and which aspects may be less intuitive than others.
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 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)

I have over 130 hours experience tutoring online 1-1 sessions, with students ranging from GCSE to higher level undergraduate courses. I also developed my own course in economics to teach at the Oxbridge International Summer School in 2016. My teaching style places great emphasis on motivating the material so that the student can really engage. My passion for the subjects I teach means I can always provide an answer to the question 'why are we studying this?' I find the tutorial system at Oxford has been extremely beneficial for my learning and take pleasure in passing on those benefits to other students.
Jonathan's last completed GCSE Economics job with YangCheng: 1-2 hrs/week - I’m struggling with A-level writing and GCSE economics. Can I start this week and take lessons two times a week?
Having been tutored myself between the age of 10-11, and having tutored others over the last few years, I recognise the importance of a flexible and personal approach to the process of learning; what works for one does not work for all. I realise that students will want different things out of their lessons. For some it will be a rigorous application of the prescribed curriculum in preparation for a certain exam/set of exams, others may want to explore an area of interest more generally, as a supplement to their everyday schooling. I believe I am a tutor who can cater to both types of student.
My experience teaching students of all ages, of all backgrounds, from all parts of the world, affords me a firm basis for tutoring in my specified subject areas. Feedback I have received describes me as engaging, personable, yet demanding. From my own education I realise that we learn most efficiently when stretched, and this is the ethos I hope to instil in others; the ability to cope when made to think about topics in different ways, and being able to derive enjoyment from doing so.
I have recently completed my undergraduate studies at Oxford, and am currently enrolled on a post-graduate course. I am therefore very much still engaged with the process of learning. I can be flexible with my time, and am happy to discuss and talk through any sort of lesson plan or specific subject area (from those specified in my profile) you feel best suits your needs.
I have run a YouTube revision channel providing videos on a range of topics since 2013 which has received over 1.2 million views. I have also provided one-to-one tutoring to both GCSE and primary school pupils.
I am very academically capable, having gained a First Class degree (placing third in the year) in Economics and Management from the University of Oxford, 3 A*s in Economics, Maths and English at A-Level, an A in AS Further Maths and 10 A*s at GCSE.
Dani's last completed GCSE Economics job with Jaya: 1-2 hrs/week - My son has opted for Economics in GCSE . He is aligned to OCR curriculum. Need help
I use my professional economics experience to explain to students how businesses and governments apply economic concepts, drawing directly from my own dealings with clients. During my time as a professional economist, I worked with the NHS on developing its internal market structure; governments on creating their health and social care funding models and charities on calculating their social and economic impact.
Over the last academic year, I have taught over 50 clients studying at A-level, IB, GCSE and at university (BSc, MBA, MSc). I adapt my teaching strategies to meet the requirements for each syllabus.
I prepare intensely for each lesson based on the student's needs to ensure that we can make the most of the short time so lessons become fun and engaging. I set homework each week and mark it by the next lesson, adding in-depth, line-by-line supportive commentaries.
< My approach to teaching A Level and IB >
The key to academic success at A-level and IB is to build an economic framework of key principles and develop a knowledge base exceeding that of the textbook. Therefore I encourage my students to read widely on economic topics and decipher news stories using their own tool kits. This way, students gain the critical evaluation marks that are necessary for A*. I also provide detailed marking and essay feedback.
I tailor my approach to teaching A-level based on the individual needs of the student. I work with all abilities, adapting my teaching style accordingly. A typical lesson will focus on:
a) Content and concept discovery. During these lessons I explain the core economic concepts, provide examples and test student understanding.
b) Essay technique. Writing an excellent economics essay is important and during these lessons I coach the student on how to perfect essay planning and essay writing skills.
c) Application and evaluation. To gain an A/A* grade at A-level, students need to be aware of contemporary economic issues and how to draw meaning from news articles. Students also have to think critically when evaluating traditional theory. During these lessons, I will guide the student through some recent stories and discuss with them how to link the content to their essays.
< My approach to teaching university students >
The key to academic success at economics at university is to have a strong grasp of the mathematics and logic that underpin the microeconomic, macroeconomic and econometric theory. Most university level exams are essentially structured problem sets with students using algebra, calculus and graphical skills to develop solutions. With my university students I focus on developing these techniques and encourage their practical application.
A module study plan might look like (taking the example of Year 2 Macroeconomics):
Week 1 – Classical Model. We break down the model into its fundamental equations and diagrams and we work through a series of problem sets from the student’s course work or my own resources.
Week 2 – Solow Growth Model. We work through the model, starting with the output function and then add layer upon layer until we reach the most advanced form of the model (i.e. with technological progress). We then decipher what the Solow model predicts for a series of events and answer some questions form the problem set.
Week 3 – ISLM model. We set up the model by first deriving the IS curve and then the LM curve. We then explore what the model predicts for the effectiveness of fiscal and monetary policy.
Week 4 – Consumption theory. We work through the Keynesian consumption function and how successful it is at explaining the empirical data. We then move onto income smoothing model and the permanent income hypothesis.
Week 5 – Revision // Equation Tests // Problem trouble shooting
University modules I teach:
- Introductory (Year 1) Microeconomics and Macroeconomics
- Intermediate (Year 2) Microeconomics and Macroeconomics
- Advanced (Year 3) Microeconomics and Macroeconomics
- Game Theory and Strategic Thinking
- Global Financial Economics
- International Trade
- International Development Economics
I am a university lecturer with 10+ years of teaching and tutoring experience. I am patient and listen well to the needs of my students. My degree was in economics and I have great numerical skills.
I have tutored students towards university, GCSE and A-level graduation.
I have experience teaching over 60 students including A-level candidates and university undergraduates. I hold a First from the LSE in Economics and have been teaching for over two years.
Studying for your exams is hard work and stressful and I try to make the process a bit easier. My tutorials don’t just aim to teach economics but how to study efficiently and build exam technique.
Even for the best student, trying to guess what the examiner wants can be very hard. I use my years of experience studying and teaching economics and the hundreds of mock exam answers students have written for me to guide students towards the top grades.
I have extensive experience across a variety of A-level exam board including Edexcel, AQA, OCR and WJEC. I am also familiar with the Scottish Higher and Advanced Higher system and the IB.
Over the past two years, I have taught approximately 25 A-level students and aim to improve their grade by a minimum of two levels.
Here are the things I find students struggle with the most and how I help them improve:
Problem: Essay Questions (especially 25-mark questions)
Solution: proper essay planning, detailed feedback, timed practice
Solution: proper essay structure, signposting
Problem: Running out of time
Solution: Timed practice questions over and over again!
Problem: Multi-choice questions
Solution: Timed practice, process of elimination
I have direct experience with introductory and intermediate economics modules across most top UK universities.
In particular, I have experience teaching microeconomics, macroeconomics, economic history, statistics, mathematics and econometrics.
I can help with providing feedback and guidance on academic writing including summative essays and dissertations.
I have extensive knowledge of the following courses at LSE:
EC100, EC102, EC201, EC210, EC220, EC311
EH101, EH207, EH237, EH240, EH304
