Information about Peter
The key strengths of my approach is that I am a highly effective communicator and can draw on extensive non teaching experience to inspire young people. I have a particular interest in solving limiting problems for young people. Examples of this might be exam phobia/stress, poor literacy, poor mental arithmetic, poor reading and comprehension skills and teaching young people how to help themselves.
The key to success is developing independence and exam focussed skills. Mentoring is of more value than content tutoring, as it can help young people to plan more effectively, become more organised, work effectively on their own and without direct support.
There wont be a tutor to solve problems and prompt in exams!

Experience: BA Hons in Industrial Economics at University of Nottingham (1982), BSc Hons in Sport and Exercise Science at University of Chichester (2007) and PGCE In Business/Economics at University of Portsmouth (2011).
Before teaching I held a number of senior roles during a 20 year financial services career focused on the development and marketing of investment platforms. Most senior role held - Marketing Director, Scottish Widows. These were all applied economics roles which involved close working relationships with many city institutions and economists and extensive blogging experience.
In 2010 I commenced teacher training and have taught at GCSE, A-level and IB Diploma at Portsmouth Grammar School and at South Downs College. Following this I founded [contact detail removed] which supports schools via online courses covering Economics, Business, Maths and Science at GCSE and Economics and Business at A-Level.
Between 2015 and 2018 I marked A-level economics scri pts for AQA and was invited to address students on "Succeeding in Exams" at the last 3 Economics in Action Events.
Drawing on years of experience managing adults, mentoring experience has been developed on a pro bono basis with a number of students of friends and family. Typically students aiming to improve grades either for university or to avoid continuation of Maths at college.
