Are looking for a specialist GCSE or A-Level Economics tutor?

Then you’re in the right place!

I am a highly experienced and enthusiastic Economics private tutor and examiner. I have successfully taught over 300 + students over the years and have been tutoring students at all different levels for over 12+ years! I have a proven track record of helping students achieve the highest possible grades. The majority of my students have attended prestigious universities in the UK and abroad including Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Nottingham, Warwick, University of Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Kings College London, LSE and Harvard.

I am an Economics BSc (Hons) graduate who went on to work for the Investment Bank Goldman Sachs. After a career break travelling around the world, I decided to follow my passion for teaching and went on to complete my teaching qualification (PGCE) at University College London (UCL) - Institute of Education in 2012. I then worked my way up to become the Director of Studies at Albemarle Independent College in Mayfair where I also enjoyed teaching Economics & Business Studies for over 10+ years. I also gained an insight into the best exam techniques students could use during my time as an examiner for various exam boards.

I really enjoy tutoring and gain great satisfaction from passing on to my students the expert knowledge gained throughout my career. I specialise in teaching GCSE and A-level Economics across a variety of examination boards which include AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC & IB. I really enjoy working with students from all different levels and find it very rewarding.

I am very passionate about teaching and believe that every student has a different learning style. My lessons are focused on building student confidence and ensuring students understand what they are learning rather than memorisation. I try to make my lessons enjoyable and relevant by introducing real-life debates and discussions to ensure students are able to think for themselves and apply their economic knowledge to the real world.

I ensure my students are very organised with a checklist created from the syllabus to monitor their progress. I strongly believe that students knowing their economic theory is not enough to attain a high grade. I focus on examination techniques with all of my students. I ensure they are given a step-by-step process of how to answer long answer questions using knowledge (K), Application (AP), Analysis (An) and Evaluation (Ev), in addition to providing model answers. I will also focus on teaching students how to break down a question to ensure they understand it, how to plan their answers, time management techniques, how to draw relevant diagrams quickly and accurately, the importance of including economic theory, identify keywords and how many points to write and finally how to evaluate their answers.

After a few lessons, I will analyse their revision technique for economics and work with them individually to ensure their method of revision is efficient enough to attain the grade required for their university of choice.

Finally, a little bit about hobbies, I love to travel and spent six months travelling around South East Asia after my university degree and have continued to travel throughout my teaching career. I maintain a passion for sports and play football, golf and tennis on a weekly basis in addition to going to the gym. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and especially my newborn daughter.
