Information about Simon

I graduated from the LSE with a BSc(Econ) honours degree and worked in the Government Economic Service based in H M Treasury. This means I have real world experience that can bring detail and relevance to your work. As an experienced examiner I know how to help you achieve your best.

I am an experienced teacher of Economics and Business to undergraduate level including A-level, GCSE, BTEC and International qualifications. I have a published textbook on Mathematics for Economics and Business which has been adopted by universities including University College, Dublin.

At A-level, my results secured an ALPS score of ‘’2’ and in the top national quartile for value-added. At GCSE, my results were consistently in the top 3 subjects for progress in the school.

My support includes:
- one to one tuition including face to face and by FaceTime
- exam practice
- deep assessment (rather than just tick and flick marking) to help you improve rapidly;
- personalised support with essays, dissertations and coursework; and
- support with UCAS personal statements.

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: Experienced teacher of economics, business and accounting/finance. LSE graduate, worked in H M Treasury and taught for 20 years including examiner for large exam boards. Great results for pupils. I enjoy what I do and teaching, for me, is a privilege.

Simon has supported both my son and daughter in business studies. He assisted my son in getting a A * at level. I have always found Simon to be a very dedicated and sincere tutor, who truly goes the extra mile in nurturing and unlocking the full potential of a student. Now working with my daughter, I hope once again through his experience and expertise that she will flourish in the subject. Thank you Simon! Sg

Not easy to find someone who can support degree level Economics essays but Simon definitely can! Really nice to work with and added some excellent insight on structure and content. Very highly recommended

Simon is very organised and I enjoyed the conversation with him - I asked him a few questions before our session and he came to the course with prepared answers. He is also very good at spotting where you didn`t understand and patiently explained those parts to you. I would definitely recommend Simon.

Simon is a great, supportive tutor. He is very organised and always on time with lessons. He always makes sure he comes prepared and asks the student at the start of the lesson what they would like to do during the lesson. He is both reliable and helpful.

Simon is a great tutor! Very friendly and easy to talk to and made it so much easier to write up my personal statement. He helped make my statement sound more professional and made me feel a lot more confident about applying to uni. I wouldn`t have been able to do that without Simon`s help. Would definitely recommend for anyone struggling to write up their personal statement!

Simon is really really amazing. My sun struggled a lot during his first years of A level Economics. Simon boosted his grades. He went from an U to an A!!!. Now he is at Uni studying Economics! Would highly recommend him to anyone. Simon has variety of teaching methods. He teaches the theories and then explains in depth on how you can apply those theories into real life examples. Again would recommend him to anyone!
