I have tutored GCSE, A-level, Degree and Doctorate-level students on a range of subjects, although my main focus has been Psychology, Sociology, academic writing skills, Business Studies and Research Methods. I have written model essays for exam boards, proofread and edited work to be published, and worked on many dissertations and PhDs with university students.
For Psychology and Sociology, I adopt a systematic approach, and generally like to go over the material thoroughly, testing the student throughout, and spend time on previous exam papers and questions, planning essay answers, discussing how theories relate to real-life situations etc. I sometimes mind-map various themes and ideas with the student, and think outside the box as it were, to make sure that the ideas stem from the student's own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realise, it just needs coaxing out of them!). I often tutor on coursework as well as examination preparation.
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 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.
I have been lecturing since 2003 and I am a visiting lecturer in London, teaching on the International Business Program and also cover Business subjects, such as Marketing, HRM and Strategy, plus I am also a dissertation supervisor for undergraduates and postgraduates. I have lectured overseas in Valencia, Cyprus and Florida on Undergraduate and Postgraduate Business Programs. I am a professional private tutor, teaching Undergraduate, Postgraduate and PhD students offering synchronous tutoring using interactive audio, video (Zoom or Skype) and whiteboard (Bitpaper) sessions with individuals or groups of students, and I also offer asynchronous face-to-face tutoring. I am responsible for, and manage, private tutoring for members of the Saudi and Qatar Royal family's, studying on Business Programs in London, at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate level.
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).
My mission as a tutor is to positively motivate students to achieve. As such I stay attuned to each students’ needs and tailor lessons as needed. To this aim, I incorporate technology (online/blended learning tools) and use a variety of up to date learning materials. These materials include academic and mainstream readings, as well as media (podcast, documentaries, etc.…). I have over ten years of experience teaching and tutoring private clients and large groups ranging from school age to IB, to the university level. Subjects I've tutored include English, business subjects, anthropology, geography, public and interpersonal communications, and academic/professional writing on various.
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!
