Information about Kieran
I am an ICAEW registered ACA / ACCA prize-winning tutor who has a 97% student pass rate and 100% student satisfaction.
I won various ICAEW prizes for Accounting, Financial Reporting, Tax, Audit, Financial Management, Business Strategy and Case Study, including the highest score in the world. I now use my skills and knowledge to develop highly effective learning materials and exam strategies to guide my students through their ACA and ACCA exams. To date, nearly all my students have passed and my 97% student pass rate is testament to the effectiveness of my tuition.
My tuition has 2 key objectives which are fundamental to exam success:
1. Developing technical knowledge Professional exams can initially seem incredibly complicated and can be unlike any other subject students have studied before. My approach simplifies the subject and teaches the most examinable content in a way that students can readily and easily understand. My students find that my methods of teaching are far more effective than the standarised approach used by `large classroom` tuition providers.
2. Mastering exam technique The next step is teaching students how to approach each type of question in the exam and how write their answers as concisely as possible whilst demonstrating the full spectrum of their newly acquired knowledge. This ensures that the student completes the exam within the time whilst also writing all the points which will be on the mark scheme. Having been a prize winner for virtually all the exams I teach, I have developed optimal exam technique which I ensure is ingrained into my students by exam day.
There can be no better proof of the effectiveness of my exam strategies than the fact that they won me and my students several prestigious prizes and my students have a near 100% pass rate especially when the majority of my students were resitting.
Teaching uses a combination of technical presentations, calculation techniques and shortcuts, interactive examples, bespoke exam strategies, past paper questions and learning tips.
Tuition is available for the following subjects:
ACA Accounting (AC), Principles of Tax (PTX), Management Information (MI), Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR), Audit (AA), Tax Compliance (TC), Business Strategy (BS), Financial Management (FM), Business Planning: Tax (BPT), Corporate Reporting (CR), Case Study (CS)
ACCA Tax, Financial Reporting, Strategic Business Reporting, Advanced Tax, Advanced Audit
Availability: Evenings and weekends.
I am often at full capacity around exam time so please book well in advance of your sitting to avoid disappointment.
Willing to travel: 50 miles
Experience: I have taught my specialist subjects for several years on both a one to one and a group basis. I have worked for world renowned professional qualification tuition providers, qualified at a Big Four accountancy firm and am now a Finance manager at a FTSE 50 company.

I attended Kierans ACA Masters class for my Tax Compliance exam and found it very useful
Kieran is very knowledgeable and his teachings makes me understand things better.
Very very expensive. 1000% commercial. Wonderful, sincere, helpful, consientious and nice teacher as well as good human being.
Although I was a bit skeptical about a skype lesson, however Kieran put any doubts in my mind to rest.
He was clear and concise when explaining things. Focused on the main areas and provided guidance on the optimum exam technique in order to pass.
Will definitely be using Kieran for the remainder of my exams and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of using a tutor to help with the ACA.
Kieran was really good at teaching the content and giving tips and advice for the exam! Learnt a lot more to what I had learnt before!

Clear and concise teaching, notes provided are really easy to digest and exam technique was being explained and shown well!
Kieran was concise and clear. The small class format really helps break things down that would normally be overly complex.

A great tutor who makes it really easy to grasp difficult topics. Focuses on key topic areas and is straight to the point. therefore making it easier to take in key information. great communication and have enjoyed the tutoring and would recommend this to other people.
Kieran is an excellent tutor. He explained everything so well and clearly so that it was easy to understand the subject and therefore easier to answer the question bank. My knowledge of the subject, especially those areas that I was struggling with have greatly improved under Kieran`s guidance, and i feel much more confident going forward with my learning towards the exam. My performance in the exam I am sure will be greatly enhanced thanks to his teaching and knowledge of the subject and his exam technique. An excellent teacher- I cannot recommend highly enough.
Kieran is a great tutor and helped to alleviate much of the stress of the revision process. He is always prepared for lessons with a lesson plan and additional resources. He is also good at explaining tricky concepts and adapts to your learning pace. As a person, he is affable, enthusiastic in lessons and keen to help you pass the exams.
Having sat and failed the ACA TC exam a couple of times, Kieran was able to help me pass this. Very down to earth and easy to get on with, with a training programme focusing on the core skills required to pass the exams.
I was really struggling with the ACA accounting and tax material and Kieran has provided excellent guidance and techniques to help me pass these exams. He`s a very patient tutor and really makes sure that you feel confident going into the exam. Very friendly and always helpful, would highly recommend!
