Information about Ian

I am proud of the large number of excellent grades my tutees have achieved. With over thirty five years tutoring, examining and teaching experience is a major reason why these high grades have come about. The final grades are very often often above my tutees` personal targets. By working on both subject knowledge and exam technique my tutees make excellent progress. Students then start managing to break down, often difficult parts of the subject, into easy to understand sections. This makes it much easier to analyse and evaluate topics and hence raise understanding and gain much improved examination grades.
Together with a good sense of humour and easy manner helps to realise the potential of my many tutees.

I have an excellent knowledge of the requirements of the old and new specifications of AQA, Edexcel A and B and OCR in both Economics and Business Studies. This allows my tutoring to be geared to the actual exam being taken.

Personal feedback from a large number of parents and tutees has clearly demonstrated that my work has been appreciated and seen as being very effective in raising final grades.

Availability: All weekdays and evenings plus Sunday evening.

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: Over thirty five years very successful teaching Economics and Business Studies at GCSE and A level. I have taught in a very wide variety of schools and for several years was a tutor at the University of Sheffield. I was part of a team that was employed to advise on the teaching of A levels by the Malaysian Government. I have also set A level exam questions for two exam boards and am involved, at present, as an Examiner for OCR, a Moderator for Edexcel and a tutor of AQA exam boards.

Ian has tutored my son for the 2nd year of A level Economics B. My son has found the sessions very helpful and described Ian as being very knowledgable. He gave clear constructive feedback. He has also given useful advice re exam technique. I would not hesitate in recommending Ian as a tutor.

We couldn’t have asked for anyone more supportive and helpful in our quest for a suitable A level Business Studies tutor for our daughter. Ian is extremely responsive and willing to work to accommodate scheduling challenges. He is prompt and efficient and is able to develop a good rapport with his students. We do not hesitate to recommend Ian to other parents looking for extra support.

Ian is very approachable and efficient at getting back to you.
My daughter is enjoying her tutoring, despite having reservations at first because she had never had online tutoring before but she likes how flexible the process is, together with how supportive, approachable and flexible Ian is with her.

Although my son has not had Ian for very long he is already beginning to feel the benefits of his tutoring. He is always very well prepared for each lesson and has an excellent understanding of the syllabus.

Ian has helped me exceed my target grade in AS Business Studies last year and I am currently being tutored by him for my A2 year. I would have no doubt succeeded like I did in my first year without his help. Very highly recommended tutor.

Ian has really helped me to understand some complex economic theory`s through good simple examples and then deeper discussions.
With Ian`s help I will certainly reach my target grade and exceed it!
