Information about Nicholas
I have a BSc Hons 2:1 in Economics from Bath University and a PGCE in Economics and Maths from Warwick University. I work exclusively as a private tutor after 25 years of teaching Economics at A level. My approach is to be supportive in helping the student to achieve their goals, no student should ever feel embarrassed about asking a question. I encourage the student to lead the session on the topics they want to cover and I try to find out what hobbies and interests they have so that they can relate Economics to the real world.
I set work for the student to complete so that we can progress check their knowledge and exam technique. MY STUDENTS CONSISTENTLY ACHIEVE EXCELLENT GRADES. MOST GAIN A OR A* IN A LEVEL BUSINESS/ECONOMICS. LEVEL 6-8 AT GCSE MATHS
I have written an article on current macro economic issues that can be accessed on this ite
I have also taught and tutored Business Studies for 29 years. Last year I had 7 A level students of 6 achieved an A grade. I have been an exam marker for AQA at A level so I am able to teach students the analytical and evaluative techniques that are required. I also have a wide range os source materials to draw on which is important for the longer case study questions at A2.
Many students study both Economics and Business Studies and I can offer split sessions if the student needs them
I have successfully tutored Maths for Common Entrance Examination, GCSE and IGCSE level for 5 years. I am very flexible in my approach and I use many of the visual techniques used in Singapore to help convey topics like fractions that many students find difficult.
Availability: I tutor weekdays, evenings and weekends
Willing to travel: 30 miles
Experience: 25 years of classroom teaching in 6th form education and one year as a private tutor in Economics for OCR,AQA, EDEXCEL and Pre- U exam boards. I help to organise and run intensive revision courses in London and Sussex.I also have a lot of experience in preparing students for exams through developing their understanding and their exam technique. I love the job that I do and I wouldn`t do anything else!Contact this Tutor
Feedback For Nicholas (29)
We received excellent economics tuition from Nicholas, my daughter lacked confidence in the subject and with guidance from Nicholas her grades started to rise rapidly. Nicholas was flexible with timings of tuition and managed to fit lessons in around her college timetable. My daughter scored a D in her first year exams and was awarded a B in her CAGS this year (no exam due to Covid). I would definitely recommend Nicholas as a tutor, he has a wealth of experience & knowledge!
Very helpful for Economics A level and is very clear
Excellent Tutor, my daughter has already improved her Maths a lot and her tests are now almost all A. Very satisfied and definitely would recommend Nicholas.

Nick has been tutoring my son for a couple of months now and we are really really happy with him. He is giving my son more confidence in economics and business studies and am sure will improve his grades
Nick is very good at tailoring your tutoring to suit you. He is able to find gaps in your knowledge. I have found the his approach and guidance to exam technique invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
It is difficult to match up what you are after without talking and meeting the individual - it many ways it is a leap of faith that you have it "right"
If you are looking for an economics tutor this is someone who you should have no hesitation about - he is good
Early days but excellent teacher. Picks up learning style very quickly.
Nick is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable interesting tutor. He has managed to help Alex regain his thirst for learning economics. He teaches in a way that engages and helps the student work things out for themselves.
