My specialist subjects are Economics (A-level, IB and University - select modules) and Maths. I also teach Science (up to GCSE), Biology (up to A-Level), Business Studies and RS to GCSE Level. I also have a keen interest in tutoring in 7, 11+ and 13+ examinations and providing assistance to A-Level students with UCAS and interviews for University and summer internships.
I assess each of my students, establishing their strengths, weaknesses and gaps in their knowledge, and then develop a tailor-made curriculum for them to ensure they have a total grasp of their school syllabus. As well as assisting students in developing a passion for their respective subjects (by encouraging discussion and debate), I concentrate on ensuring students are familiar with exam papers, answer schemes and methods in which to answer questions.
In all my dealings with students, I try to supplement tutoring with mentoring and career advice. This is particularly so with A-Level and university students. At a time where experience is crucial in attaining the most competitive jobs, students must be well prepared in tackling application forms and interviews. My passion and expertise in this area enable me to effectively assist students in getting through this in a comfortable and timely manner.
I graduated in BSc Economics from Queen Mary, University of London in 2012. On completion of my A-levels, I decided to undertake a GAP scheme with KPMG in the City. This truly invaluable experience enabled me to gain an early insight into the professional world and form networks and contacts that I continue to keep in touch with today. Furthermore I was fortunate enough to secure various internships during my university years, the sum of which has led me to be an effective mentor and advisor to many students today. I also spent time tutoring at George Greens School and Brooke House 6th form College during my first year at university and quickly realised that I have a talent for teaching and tutoring as well as motivating students to overcome challenges in learning and academia.
I have a wealth of experience in tutoring students of different ages and helping them get through their respective exams, application forms and interviews for schools, universities, internships and graduate jobs. Examples include tutoring 4 AS-Level Economics students from Brooke House 6th form college (Hackney, London), GCSE students from George Greens school in Island Gardens (London) and tutoring A-Level Economics and most recently have most teaching an IB student Maths, Biology and Economics on a residential basis at their home in Paris.
