Information about Dave

I am passionate about education, learning and development and have expertise in tutoring, coaching and mentoring students. I relate to, and get on with, people. I teach Business Studies and Economics both to UK and international students (see tutoring experience).

I provide both face to face 1:1 tutoring at home and online in my global online classroom to UK and international students. 70% of my tutoring to final year "A" level students was online.
I tutor home schooled students and provide online tutoring for A level groups in schools to add value / cover absence.
Individual and group tutoring (subject to demand) are also available during school holidays.

My latest innovation for this academic years is to facilitate bringing appropriately matched students (same year, same subject and exam board, similar intellect and personality fit) together online to:
a) share ideas and help each other consider arguments and different perspectives
b) discuss homework set by myself to both students
c) discuss exam paper questions together
d) revise together

21/8/19 A Level Results
For 9 students who have two or more hours long-term tutoring per week the average grade increase was 2.2 grades. I have tutored both UK and international students with an increased emphasis on online home schooling and 2 to 4 hours per week online tutoring for students at school/college whilst still tutoring quite a number of students once a week. I am delighted to announce the following results.

Online Home schooled Students
Business "A" Grade (improvement from C grade)
Economics "A" Grade (improvement from C grade)

UK Students
4 "A" grades (including 1 "AS" level), 4 "B" grades

International Students
Business - 1 "A" grade & 1 "B" grade

Business - 2 "C" grades (improvement from "U"s)

Economics - 1 "A" grade

Business - 1 "C" grade (improvement from "E")
Economics - 1 "C" grade

A Level Results
2018 (so far) 7 "A"s, 11 "B"s and 6 "C"s. Average grade improvement for long-term tutoring 1.7 grades
From 20 A level results I have bettered grade improvement from long-term tutoring on average improving students
grades by not far off two grades. I am delighted with these results. Of course some students improve by 1 grade to achieve an "A" grade whilst a few really focused students have improved by 4 grades. The odd student has stayed the same. There are many factors which contribute to success. From 3 student`s short-term tutoring I have an average grade improvement of 1 grade. Long-term tutoring is key to success.

2017 1 "A*", 6 "A"s and 8 "B"s, 4 "C"s. Average grade improvement for long-term tutoring 1.5 grades from 8 results. Average grade improvement from short-term tutoring was 1.1 grades from 11 students. Quite a lot of students I tutor throughout the whole academic year to help them maximise their potential, and these "A" level results reflect this. Students are going to Cambridge, Durham, St Andrews, Birmingham, Nottingham, Newcastle, Leeds Uni etc ...

I have over 15 years experience in education and training within industry managing, designing and delivering learning solutions, both on a one to one basis, to classrooms of students and to thousands of students. I am a qualified teacher and have 8 year`s teaching, face to face and online tutoring experience with impressive outcomes.

I have deep subject matter knowledge from my roles in industry combined by a real ability to engage with students, bring subjects to life and explain things really simply. I have worked in education at schools, within Businesses, in Banking and in Information Communication Technology and am able to provide tutees with real life practical examples in business and economics which really adds to their learning.

As a volunteer I have been chair of a local sports club junior section managing over 280 juniors, 40 coaches and volunteers. I`m known for a sense of fun and humour, facilitating people`s development bringing the best out of them by bringing subjects to life. I`m a former hockey and tennis coach, am married with a couple of teenagers so I understand the parent`s view. I have coached a junior hockey team to three County Cup wins in a row.

My first lesson as a planning lesson, which also includes online testing of the online tutoring. Assuming the tutee is happy to continue, which has currently always been the case, there is a contract to sign and a minimum of eight hours tutoring for the tutee to sign up to.

Availability: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during the day and evenings, Tuesdays and Thursday mornings and weekends, either online using my global online classroom or face to face at my house.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: A qualified teacher, I have nine years successful teaching and tutoring experience at GCSE and "A" level with excellent feedback from my students and effective outcomes, including high grades at "A" level. My references and feedback scores support this and further provide you with an assurance of professional quality tutoring. I rely on providing an excellent service to develop both my reputation to clients and my business.

Over the summer 2016 I undertook continuous professional development on the new A Level specifications and attended formal training and have attended further formal training in June 2017.

Note: As well as the common exam boards, for Business Studies I tutor Cambridge International, and am tutoring students from overseas, including students from the UAE, Russia, India, China, Ukraine, Portugal, Austria and Spain. Cambridge Int reference below:

Our daughter decided to study Cambridge International Exam Board As and A2 Business Studies in one year while attending an International School in the Middle East. To support her school lessons, Dave tutored her online throughout the full year. Using his experience in business, he made the subject extremely interesting for her. He gave her confidence in her studies and provided her with excellent exam techniques coupled with invaluable examples. All of which enabled her to achieve her A*. (Note - the student received the highest grade in their subject in their country)

Dave is an amazing economics tutor. Helped me with my online tutorials while studying A Levels at home and managed to boost me from a C to an A in under a year. Highly recommend for anyone taking economics.

Tutors Response :

Brilliant Lottie!

You worked incredibly hard and really deserve your success. As advised this is online home schooling.

Kind regards,

Before my tutoring with Dave I lacked confidence and struggled to grasp many economic concepts. However, after just a few lessons my confidence grew massively. In six months he helped me go from a low D grade up to achieving my target grade of a B getting me into my firm choice university. Thank you Dave!

Tutors Response :

Brilliant Adam!

You worked really hard to achieve your success - much deserved. Again this was online tutoring.

Kind regards,

Mr Dave is a very good tutor. I was able to transform my E grade to a B grade in business AS level. His guidance and knowledge had helped me to excel in my business AS level course. Furthermore, Mr Dave is funny and a patient teacher as well, making his classes engaging and fun.

Tutors Response :

Thanks Maren,

You are making excellent progress and deserve your AS level success. Now for the next challenge!

This is online tutoring for A level Cambridge International Business and Economics using my global online classroom - for a student who is based in East Asia.

My son has just started studying with Dave Caddie’s for his A Level economics and is beginning to see an improvement in his class scores. Dave has been efficient and informative in all regards

Angela (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

Dave tutored our son in both A-level Business and Economics and his support helped to achieve a 2-grade improvement in one academic year - from a D grade in AS-level to a B in A-level.
His professional approach and friendly manner helped to get the most out of our son whilst providing us as parents with the reassurance he was in good hands. I particularly liked the structured approach around study plans, review sessions and invoicing.
I would recommend Dave to anyone considering a tutor for Economics or Business.

Tutors Response :

Thanks Angela,

Your son was very focused and deserved his success.

I first contacted Dave in Oct `14 as I was looking for an `A Level` Business Studies teacher for my son. My son was entering his second year of studies at his local college and after a disappointing first year I felt I had to take matters into my own hand. The college my son was studying at was failing him on many levels. My son only achieved a Grade E after his first year of studies yet we both knew he was capable of much more.
I contacted Dave because after reading many disappointing profiles I felt Dave`s profile was professional, honest, personal and likeable plus he was local, even though I was prepared to travel for the right tutor.
I took my son along for our first meeting with Dave and instantly realised that we had both chosen well.
He was friendly, open, honest, relaxed and had a good sense of humour. His educational qualifications were second to none. I was under no pressure from Dave to use his services but deep down within minutes of meeting him I knew and more importantly my son knew Dave was the best person to bring out the best in my son.
I wasn`t to be disappointed because 10 months later my son achieved a Grade B. He was 2 marks from a Grade A and has re-submittted his papers for re-marking.
Both my son and Dave have worked extremely well during their time together. Dave has kept me updated re my son`s progress every step of the way and I am more than grateful for all the time and effort he has put in to bring out the best in my son re his studies.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dave to anybody looking for a Business Studies tutor.
However I do have one regret and that is that I wish I had found Dave 12 months earlier. Excellent tutor and highly recommended.

I would highly recommend dave as a tutor. Dave has tutored me for both business studies and economics A level.

My tutoring has all been online and takes place in an online classroom which uses a web chat feature along with an interactive whiteboard facility which includes a document sharing element for discussion of work and past papers/mark schemes.

Dave has really been able to bring my subjects to life. With online tutoring it is sometimes difficult to engage with the tutor (i have found this with online tutors for other subjects) however with dave this has not been the case and in fact, i looked forward to my lessons with him. He makes lessons fun, he is enthusiastic and has a fantastic sense of humour.

He has been able to explain the easier areas of my courses in ways which have kept me focused and has also successfully managed to break down the more complicated elements of my subjects with real-life examples which helped me to understand the logic. His experience both in industry and as a tutor complimented his ability to do this.

Dave is a genuinely nice guy and an excellent tutor!

We have used Dave for the last 6 months and have been able to see my son progress from grade E`s to now regularly B/A.We see Dave for 1.5 hours per week. He is a friendly and patient guy who has a passion for helping students achieve their goals. During our time working together Dave`s commitment has been outstanding. On occasions when we haven`t been able to make the appointment due to work commitments, Dave has travelled to our house to ensure we can stick to his program. I would say if you are lucky enough to be tutored by Dave you stand every chance of achieving your goals.

Dave has tutored me for my final year "A"Level Business Studies and I highly recommend him. I have an "A" grade in my Business Unit 3 and David has been helping me to build up my knowledge, confidence and exam technique for Business Unit 4. He listens and adapts the sessions to meet my requirements and adds extra value through his deep academic knowledge, teaching skills and practical experience of business. And David has an engaging manner, thanks very much Dave.
