Information about Tim
My teaching career started in 1990 and I became a full-time lecturer in 1992.
It all amounts to more than 20 years of teaching experience in the classroom. My other years were spent gaining greater knowledge and experience, working in the industry.
During the covid-19 environment, I changed my focus from the classroom, to specialise in online tutoring. I now have the resources for a successful online educational experience.
There are excellent online teaching resources, mainly in the form of PowerPoint presentations, case studies, short videos, past Edexcel exam papers with examiners reports and plenty of references to the business world.
However, you mustn`t forget my real-life industry work experience, in-between my teaching jobs. My industry knowledge can complement the lessons and enhance your learning experience.
Like some tutors, I don`t claim to teach up to 10 GCSEs or A-Levels or more! I specialise in two subjects - Business Studies and Travel & Tourism. I`m also not a qualified English, Maths or Languages teacher who says that I`m able to teach Business Studies or Travel and Tourism. This gives you greater confidence, to know that you are getting a specialist.
BTEC (Travel and Tourism) and Edexcel (Business Studies) are my specialist areas, which enables me to provide you with excellent support, guidance and tuition relating to these subjects and awarding bodies.
With confidence, you can join me on a teaching and learning journey that will be enjoyable and bring success. Let`s go for it!
Availability: My availability is very flexible - to fit in with your requirements.

Experience: 16 years full-time teaching; 4 years part-time teaching;
