About Me

I have a passion for the subjects that I teach, a sound subject knowledge and most invaluable of all, qualities of empathy, patience and sincerity. These enable me to tailor tutoring to the individual student’s needs. I have taught Economics at different levels (A2, AS, IB, Pre-U and GCSE), planning and delivering engaging lessons to students of a range of abilities. I have helped students to achieve top grades for the IB, OCR, AQA and Edexel Economics exam boards. In addition to this, I have experience as an A level Economics examiner for the AQA exam board, which has provided me with a major insight into the criteria for achieving ‘high grades’.

I most recently taught at a leading independent girls’ school – Notting Hill and Ealing High School. During my time working at the school, it came top for GCSE results out of all Girls Day Trust Schools (GDST), and second for A-Level results.

I have also had three years of teaching experience at an outstanding comprehensive school in London, having come into contact with students from a variety of social and ethnic backgrounds. I mark Extended Project Qualifications (EPQs) for those A level Economics students keen to research an Economic related issue. The projects are assessed at the equivalent of undergraduate degree level.  I work extensively with Advanced Skilled Teachers (ASTs) considering a whole range of strategies and tools to enhance student learning. I have had experience teaching intense Easter revision courses at Lansdowne College, a highly prestigious sixth form college.

My role as a teacher has often involved close regular contact with parents, as well as staff, which I believe is crucial to ‘bring the best’ out of every student.  Our school results for A2 Economics: 95% achieved grade A-C and GCSE Economics: 90% A-C.

Last year I led an A level Economics trip to visit the Bank of England and the Bloomberg offices in the City, and am currently running the Bank of England Target 2.0 Competition, which my school has been fortunate enough to compete in.

Recent tuition

Below is snapshot of the students I have worked with.

GCSE Economics – I taught this for three years at Drayton Manor High School, where a high proportion of students received A or A* grades.

16+ Economics – I have prepared students for 16+ economics exams to Westminster, Winchester, Shrewsbury School and Wellington College. Using a combination of my own materials and guidance materials from the individual schools, I worked closely with these students to prepare them for these competitive exams. They were all successful in being offered places.

A Level Business Studies – Along with teaching Business Studies at Drayton Manor Hill School for three years, with all of my classes achieving a high grade attainment, I have also tutored several students outside of this with a range of exam boards including AQA and Edexcel. I am very pleased to say that a very high proportion of my students achieve A and B grades.

AQA AS Economics – I tutored a student in AQA AS Economics – She achieved an A grade, averaging 90% in her exam!

IB Economics (HL) – I tutored IB Economics Higher level to a home schooled student over the course of three months. He attained a 6, a considerable improvement from what he was expecting, and now has a place at Edinburgh University.

Cambridge Pre-U Economics – I have tutored several students for the Pre-U Economics exams. This includes several students at Winchester, where they follow the Pre-U syllabus. The Pre-U syllabus is more challenging as it goes into more depth and breadth than the A level syllabuses.

Group revision classes – At school and colleges I have delivered intervention and revision classes to small groups and individual students. These have targeted both the Oxbridge ‘high achiever’ and those students keen to improve on their predicted grades.

University Economics – I tutored a student who was preparing for their Economics exam for their degree at Imperial College Business School. We worked through the material carefully, focusing on all aspects, ensuring that the student understood the basics that underpinned the material. They received an A grade.

University Business – I worked with a student who was preparing for her exams for her International Business degree at Birkbeck University. She came out with a better understanding, and results she was very pleased with!
