Information about David
I would describe myself as an enthusiastic and good humoured teacher, who has a real desire to see young people succeed. Last year all my students achieved A*-B grades in A` Economics spread across all 4 main examination boards.
I will do my best to help you acquire a good grounding in Economic theory or in current issues in the Business World and how they relate to the material you are studying. I know that students often find it difficult to express and develop their ideas on paper, particularly in an exam situation. In my teaching, I not only focus on communicating an understanding of the material but also on the skills required to be successful in the final examination.
I try to work with my students to meet their needs. Sometimes this just means giving a few tips and practising questions to improve exam technique. On other occasions, I have found that students have little confidence in their ability or they feel detached from the subject, sometimes due to poor teaching at their school or college. A number of my tutees have told me that they hated Economics prior to tuition, but now it`s one of their favourite subjects.
I also have a wealth of learning resources at all levels for Economics and Business Studies which I give to students free of charge.
Availability: I am available throughout the summer months particularly if you need support in catching up on the work you would have done since the Covid 19 lockdown began in March. I`m particularly thinking of year 12 students approaching a challenging and uncertain year 13 with a number of areas of the syllabus untouched.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I am highly experienced and fully qualified teacher of Economics and Business Studies with PGCE and threshold status. I have taught for nearly 25 years in the state sector and in private colleges.As a result,I have a thorough grasp of the requirements of following exam boards AQA, Edexcel, OCR,WJEC and IB. I am also a qualified ESOL teacher and have spent a number of years working abroad.
Currently I am teaching Economics at Westminster tutors and International Foundation Group and have additional duties as an Expert examiner for Edexcel GCE Economics Paper 2

Feedback For David (3)
Very knowledgeable and good tutor and, as he is an examiner, he is very well placed to assess students
David was patient and committed and is clearly passionate about economics.
Our son was predicted a D, and after several sessions with each other, our son was much more motivated and confident. To our delight, he got an A in economics, and into his first choice Uni.
My daughter really enjoying Davids lessons. We are hoping to book him for some more
