Information about Faye

I am an experienced A-Level and GCSE Business teacher and examiner whilst being an established Senior School Leader.

Students come to me for support for knowledge building / content focus or specialist help with exam technique. It is often this lack of exam technique and exam focus that will often hinder a students progress. I am lucky enough to work with students based all over the U.K. and internationally.

I run a large department where the Business A-Level results are regularly in the best top 20% of Schools in the country. GCSE results in summer 2021 were 90% A*-C and Business A-Level achieved 30% A*, 25% above the national average for A* achievement. I also run a large faculty in a very successful secondary School encompassing all of vocational education, business education and EPQ.

Availability: Due to the current Covid 19 situation - I can now make myself available across a much wider selection of online slots to make sure your son or daughter is supported towards his / her exams. Please contact for details of availability and I will do my best to accommodate in what is proving to be an extremely challenging situation for staff and students alike. Despite Schools reopening in Sept 2020, many have not managed to operate as usual and have been forced to isolate year groups for 2 weeks at a time - this in turn has led to a loss of learning for many and a continuation of stress for both students and parents alike.

In the run up to the summer 2022 exam series, we are awaiting a Government decision on if and what the exams may look like for the students in Years 11 and 13 from Summer 2022 completion. The shift was made to teacher assessed grades for the academic year 20-21. All of the uncertainty is stressful for students and parents alike. In the classroom students must be able to demonstrate they are capable of producing high quality written work on a regular basis to their classroom teacher because this may form the basis of a teacher assessed grade if that is the governments chosen plan. On the other hand, exams may go ahead in Summer 2022 so students equally need to be prepared appropriately for `Business as usual` in regards to knowing all of the specification content and having a secure grasp of the assessment objectives.

I am here to help and work with your son or daughter to develop appropriate exam technique , cover lost content and empower your child to demonstrate to his or her classroom teacher that they are capable of producing high quality written work - all with a view that every piece of assessment may count towards a final grade. Each School is adopting a different strategy when it comes to the process of frequent assessment , marking and data capture - unfortunately all too many students are approaching me for tuition because they do not feel prepared to perform to the best of their abilities from now until the Summer of 2022 (given the remote learning model they have experienced for prolonged periods of time and the nature of the academic journey to date).

I will be doing all tutoring online for the time being and am working with Year 10, Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13 students across GCSE, A-Level and Btec qualifications

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: I have 13 years of Business Studies, Economics and EPQ A-Level / Btec / GCSE teaching experience across Berkshire.

I am a Head of Faculty in a large outstanding Secondary School, as well as heading up the Business and Financial Education at a whole School level. I am in addition to these roles a Specialist Leader in Education (SLE) training other colleagues to lead effectively across a range of Secondary Schools.

In addition to my full time teaching roles, I am an AQA / Edexcel Business A-Level and GCSE examiner, as well as EPQ and Btec Business assessor with several years of experience.

Faye has done a weekly online session on A level AQA Business Studies with my daughter for several months and these haver really improved her confidence in the subject and hopefully raised her at least one grade level from her original potential result, She has been flexible when needed and always willing to help with any issues my daughter had - would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an A level business tutor.

Tutors Response :

Thanks so much for the feedback. Katie has worked really hard, has always been keen to learn and I wish her all the best for her very bright future ahead.

Faye has been very helpful in tutoring business A level for my daughter and here is a feedback directly from her: "She provides many useful resources, such as past paper questions and worksheets, as well as improving my exam technique. As a result, I have gained more confidence in the subject and my grade has improved. She is also organised and clearly explains content which I do not understand. I would highly recommend Faye."

Tutors Response :

Thanks for the feedback Oleg, Nicole has worked hard to improve and I wish her all the best for her future studies.

Faye has been fabulous for my daughter, who is really engaged in and enjoying her studies. My daughter has lacked a lot of confidence in herself, but Faye is definitely working on that. I`ve stayed very hands off, but even at arm`s length I can see there`s been a real step-change in terms of focus and concentration, which is certainly down to Faye.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much Stella , gratefully received feedback

Faye has been truly amazing! She is helping my daughter with her EPQ report and she has been so thorough, engaging, kind, understanding yet guiding with such confidence, knowledge and consideration. My daughter loves working with Faye and finds the sessions fun instead of a chore but at the same time progress has been exceptional. What more could a parent ask for?! I would highly recommend Faye. She has been exceptional! We are so grateful to have "found" her! Thank you Faye!

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your wonderful review Sam, Jenna is a pleasure to work alongside , she has come on leaps and bounds from where we started and I look forward to working together to further support her in the future.

Faye has been unbelievably helpful in supporting my daughter to complete her EPQ and give her confidence in her business studies A level. She makes her feel at ease and is very organised, so helps her pupils to be better prepared. I think my daughter summed it up perfectly after one of their sessions, when she said, "I wish Faye was my actual business studies teacher." Praise indeed!

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your review Francesca, Honor has been a dream to work with and support, she is hardworking , determined and I hope I have helped to boost her confidence. Wishing her all the best for her bright future.

Faye is a great business tutor who tests my knowledge and helps me to develop on my exam technique. She provides me with lots of exam past papers to strengthen the areas in which I have any weaknesses in.

I was under a lot of pressure from exams and Faye was ready to help right away through a combination of face-to-face and Skype sessions. She was able to identify my weaknesses and quickly get me where I needed to be. Since working with Faye, I have managed to secure an offer at the University of my choice and I could not have done it without her. Faye has been reliable, consistent, and simply brilliant throughout. I would highly recommend Faye to any student.

Tutors Response :

Thanks Sam, you have worked really hard to get to where you needed to be. Wishing you every success for your bright future.
