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 2020, through Spires I coached a student for a few months on her Business Management IA which facilitated her to reach a 7!
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 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 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.

More than five years tutoring experience on a part-time basis. More than two years structural design experience in both design and construction. A results-driven professional with a devotion to teaching.
I am a member of two tutoring agencies, namely Harrison Allen and Tavistock tutors. In total, I have carried out more than 450 hours worth of teaching to date.
I have provided tuition non-stop for 5 years and therefore familliar with all major UK examinations boards including Edexcel, AQA and OCR.
A few recent successes of my students include a GCSE Maths student going from a grade 6 to a grade 8, an A-level student obtaining a grade A in Math and an 11+ student getting accepted to Highgate school.
I have worked as a professional tutor and educational consultant for six years. I have taught dozens of students for thousands of hours in total. I have also worked as a teacher in an independent school in North London.
I have had many successful students; a few examples include:
>Three admitted to study HSPS at Cambridge.
>One admitted to all three of Westminster, Winchester, and St.Paul's for 13+.
>One who gained 84/84 marks in his A-Level Politics Paper 2, which is now being used as an exemplar.
>One who gained an A in A-Level History after being predicted a C.
I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I aim to guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson.
I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key points, but I always end the lesson with a call to reflection on what the student has learned. I emphasise that knowledge is open-ended and interconnected.
I am focused and driven; I tutored for Kaplan Test Prep for 20-years serving 10,000 students. My students dominate exams; I am very excited for them and for the opportunities that lay ahead of them!!
I have been a tutor for Accounting, Finance and Business since 2009. I have immense experience coaching students globally for many academic and professional qualifications. With my experience, I have developed the ability to explain concepts in a practical and understandable manner, especially to students without a business and accounting background.
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 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.
