Information about Andrew
Head of Economics and Business in prestigious independent girls school in south-west London. I am an experienced teacher of both Economics and Business at post 16 mostly but also GCSE. I have acted as an Examiner for Edexcel Economics and my classroom exposure ensures my skills and competencies are up to date at all times. I have tutored all A level Economics specifications (Edexcel / AQA / Eduqas / OCR / CIE PreU). My approach is to ensure core knowledge and exam technique is secure whilst incorporating current up to date Economics and Business topics. Prior to teaching I was involved in international trade with Arabian Gulf states and use plenty of real-world experience in my practice.
Availability: Evening / weekends / school holiday periods, by mutual agreement. My preference is to travel to the students location (usually no additional fee for this and it makes it easier for the student and their families) but with Covid its quite possible to work entirely remotely.
Willing to travel: 8 miles
Experience: Currently Head of Economics and Business in high-achieving independent girls` school in south-west London. 15 years classroom experience in teaching A level Economics and A level Business and PreU in both independent and selective grammar schools. Results in 2019: Economics A level 78% A*A and Business (PreU) 100% A*A. 2020 results based on teacher assessment show even higher attainment. I have a Bachelor`s degree from the University of Edinburgh, Masters from the University of Surrey and PGCE with Business specialism. Have acted as examiner for Edexcel Economics and have experience in working with all post 16 specifications. Support with university applications, personal statements and related. I regard my tutoring as a shared journey with the student so that once begun we will see it through to the end of the process and I take great pride in seeing my students do well. (2020 A level economics results [covid cohort] 88% A/A*).
NOTE: as a practising teacher you can be reassured that my DBS and all other checks such as Safeguarding training (eg Keeping Children Safe in Education) etc is fully up to date and checked/renewed when required.
