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.

Trevor's last completed IGCSE Economics job with Mehreen: Over 2 hrs/week -
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 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.
Izabela 's last completed IGCSE Economics job with sofia: 1-2 hrs/week - I am looking to get a 7 or higher in my economics iGCSE. The exam board is Cambridge. I am currently on a 6 and need help with exam technique and answering the questions correctly.
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.
My passion is to develop in students a commitment to their own life long learning and develop the associated skills to achieve their aspirations.
In tutoring, my goal is to support students to achieve to the best of their ability by helping them understand their role in learning, supporting them to develop the necessary subject specific skill competencies as well as content understanding.
Recent students have achieved over 80% in their university entrance exams with just a few sessions including some focus on exam preparation as well as content. Another student with a commitment to her own success achieved a 7 in IB Business Management with one on one teaching over only one year, where I coached her to develop and apply her learning to achieve her desired results.
In the initial free meeting, I will help students to identify and plan their learning goals, then coach them to achieve those goals in future lessons. I also seek to engage with parents from the beginning to ensure students have as many levels of support for their learning as possible.

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.
My earliest stint with teaching dates back more than a decade when I helped my mother take private tuition at home. Fast forward to 2017 when I was conducting workshops in my MBA school to help students prepare for their semester exams (in subjects such as Financial Markets, Corporate Finance, etc.). In order for me to be able to explain the subject matter, I need not just be well read. I need to be well spoken as well. I am a voracious reader and a passionate public speaker and have represented my school and college at the national level in different competitions. Brewing my interest in the incessant world of finance, I cleared my CFA and FRM Level 1 exams in the very first attempt and am currently awaiting the results for my CFA L2 exams. I have been a subject matter expert reviewer (Finance) for Study.com wherein I reviewed 2500 questions in a span of 6 months (of which 2499 reviews were correct). Of late, I have been a finance tutor on Chegg USA and have completed 200 odd lessons with a 100% success rate.
I have considerable experience tutoring before for both in-person and online
Over the years , I have spent hundreds of hours teaching ambitious people just like you, who are not getting the support they need in school to achieve their goals
Consequently, I appreciate that every student learns at their own pace and their own style. Some learn best visually, others through analogy
That's why I take the time to speak with you and learn your specific goals, challenges and learning styles
I then tailor my lessons to maximise your progress and help secure the grades you want!

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:

Sam's last completed IGCSE Economics job with Diya: Intensive - Full economics igcse syllabus during summer school break from June 22 until August 25
I have taught a broad range of subjects in the UK and internationally periodically over the last 20 years.
I thoroughly prepare each lesson to meet the student's specific needs. I have taught A*- and E-grade students and, whatever the student's academic history, I bring clarity and order to complicated concepts, enabling them to acquire the confidence and skills they need to succeed.
I am extremely adaptable, and have taught mathematics, economics, politics, philosophy, business studies, history, close reading, literary analysis, and exam/essay technique, as well as devising and teaching a beginners’ business Russian course. I have significant TEFL experience, including at the Oxford English Centre.
