I have a target-centered approach that focuses on devising strategies for studying concepts and answering questions. I use all available resources to ensure that my students get the most out of my experience and knowledge. I am always concerned with tracking my students` progress and assessing them to achieve the best results.
I've worked with a range of students during my time as a tutor - some of my favourite success stories include:
• Providing essay and dissertation support to an MBA student at Birkbeck. The student had been scoring C grades for much of her course but wrote an excellent dissertation, deservedly receiving an 'A'. Having been awarded a "merit" for her overall qualification, she is now considering embarking on a PhD.
• Supporting an ICAEW ACA student at a Big Four firm, who was in danger of dismissal for exam failure. Having helped the student pass his next exam and avert the immediate danger, I supported him to a pass in each of his subsequent exams. He is now on the verge of completing the qualification.
• Helping a Big Four trainee who was on her "last chance" at the firm to pass her ICAS CA advanced stage exam.
• Working with an undergraduate at East Anglia University who needed to repeat a failed module in order to move onto his final year of study. I re-taught him the module over the course of the year, helping him to a strong pass.
I have extensive experience supporting students who speak English as a second language. I have also worked with a number of dyslexic students.
Prior to becoming a tutor, I acquired a range of teaching experience in a professional context including graduate training, course development and delivery, and creation of e-learning modules.
I have 22 years of experience in tutoring learners to achieve their goals. I tutor GCSE, A-Level, EPQ, IB, PRE-U, Undergraduate, Postgraduate/Doctoral students, UCAS and Oxbridge applicants, and professional clients in Academic Research and Writing, Creative Industries, Critical Thinking, Cultural Studies, Education, Film, Government and Politics, Marketing, Media, Oxbridge Entrance/UCAS, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Theology, Theory of Knowledge, and Social Sciences.
I combine two decades of experience in the education sector with my earlier career in the creative industries to offer engaging learning opportunities relevant to our daily lives. I am a passionate advocate of 'affective' learning and well-being through creativity, critical inquiry and philosophical reasoning. I invite you to engage in these ways of thinking that can empower you with relevant skills to support your personal growth. I have extensive experience in tutoring GCSE, A-Level, PRE-U, EPQ, Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Professional learners. My presentation style is engaging and interactive. I convert complicated theories and paradigms into straightforward ideas, with practical worth, and impart useful advice for my clients.

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.
More than nine years teaching at undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels. Experience teaching in economics and business degrees, including quantitative modules (eg econometrics, statistics). Currently Honorary Lecturer for University of Liverpool Online (Management Programmes), and Online Instructor for the Spanish institution Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, where I teach Introduction to Business (undergrad), Data Science for Marketing and Sales (graduate), and Business Intelligence for Digital Marketing (graduate).
6 Solid years helping students from all ages, countries and ability to gain a better understanding of mathematics and statistics.
Key areas that I like to focus on his:
Keeping a steady pace, based on the learner
Allowing for exploration of the student to come to a solution on their own. I can chime in when needed, but I will guide you.
With training and experience in a proven method of successful communication, Motivational Interviewing, I am here to reflect and guide what you need.
Calculus, Probability, Statistics, Trigonometry, Geometry, Vectors, Distributions, Differential Equations, Graph theory, I could go on. Some times it is the student who upon explaining the problem, are they able to reach a conclusion.
I have covered courses ranging from advertising to strategy, and from direct marketing to market research. I have also supervised dissertations at both under-graduate and post-graduate level.
The thing that makes me happiest at work has always been getting more out of students than they thought possible, and have helped many students who were bubbling along at the lower end of 2/ii to leave university with a First. The key to this achievement is you, not me - I can show you the path and give you a map, it's up to you to follow it!
