Information about Sean

Selecting the right tutor is an important choice to make - does the tutor teach the subject? Are they an examiner in that subject? How experienced are they? These are the questions I ask when I look for support for my own children.

Please have a quick read of my background and feel free to contact if you think that I can provide you with support.

Before you see my academic and professional background, here are two references from satisfied parents after I worked with their children.

"Sean tutored my son James on a private basis. He was reliable, efficient and planned engaging and productive sessions. Sean developed a really strong rapport with James who greatly enjoyed his teaching style and methods. He was particularly adept at breaking down the more complex concepts into bite sized pieces. The specific challenge that faced Sean with James was that he was wanting to gain an A*, however was targeted a B. He contributed greatly to the A* that James did achieve through high order questioning and excellent guidance on exam preparation and technique. Sean was able to really develop his skills of extraction, simplification, analysis and evaluation. Not only did James achieve an A* he also gained the top mark within his cohort - again something that I put down to Sean`s excellent tutoring. I would have no hesitation in recommending a superb, diligent and committed tutor to you. ”

Here is another:

“Sean helped my daughters through their AS level Economics and has been a brilliant tutor. He is very good at explaining difficult concepts and is highly knowledgeable of all areas of economics. By making extensive use of exam questions as a teaching tool he rapidly assesses understanding of a given topic, and addresses any areas of difficulty. Tutorials are therefore individually tailored. He has a relaxed and easy-going style and so easily builds rapport, while at the same time challenging the student to reach their potential. His experience as an examiner brings another aspect to the session which you won’t find with many other tutors so he can explain to you exactly how you should answer each type of question and what you should include. Being in Dubai was never an issue, as he has also created a great platform for the tuition to take place where my daughters can both write and Sean can import questions which you can still look back over in between sessions. Both girls will be continuing with Sean for their A Level Economics. Sean is an excellent tutor and I would highly recommend him.”

I can send many positive references from those students that I have taught online and who have benefitted from my experience as a senior examiner of over 20 years should you require.

I have taught Economics and Business Studies at both GCSE and A-Level for 23 years within the state sector, holding a range of positions: Head of Department, Head of Sixth Form, Assistant Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Acting Headteacher.

For 22 of those years I have examined in both subjects for UK & International examination boards at a senior level. This includes the International Economics papers for students who study the subject around the world and the Singapore A-Level papers - set solely for students of that country. I have delivered training to teachers on behalf of examination boards and asked to support schools develop their teaching of the subject.

Before training to teach, I worked within the UK Government Economic Service and a City of London Investment organisation.

I have Qualified Teacher Status and hold an up to date fully enhanced DBS certificate

I was struggling with my business A level, but after a few lessons with Sean I can already see the difference in my grades and quality of writing - saying that, I noticed the change almost immediately after the first! Sean excels at explaining advanced concepts in concise, digestible ways which bring absolute clarity to the topic in question, and really goes above and beyond in helping you understand the principles behind business. If you need a tutor for business or economics , I couldn`t recommend him enough.
