Over 10 years experiance of teaching business studies at GCSE and ALevel teaching from variety of exam boards

Methodology

Hello

I have been teaching Business studies now for over 10 years at GCSE, AS and Alevel both vocational and academic courses. I currently work for a international independent school teaching Alevel business online to many different campuses across the country.

I can help students with:
Exam preparation
General understanding of difficult topics
Coursework preparation
Coursework informal assessment

To get a clear understanding of your needs our first session will consist of a discussion with yourself (and parents if you want to) to discuss a learning plan. This way you are able to maximise your time and get the best out of your sessions.

I am familiar with many exam boards such as OCR, AQA, Edexcel,

I am a firm believer in learning by doing so you will have some preparation tasks to do before our sessions. It is important that you have a good understanding of the subject so you can apply it to different scenarios whether it be within an exam or coursework assignment.

Background

I have been a secondary school teacher and head of business studies department for nearly 10 years in 4 different schools. I have taught many different students from different backgrounds and gained very good results. At one school I totally transformed a failing department, where AS and A level students where gaining U's. Within the first year my students where achieving C grades and above.

I have exceptional experience with vocational courses such as BTEC and Cambridge Technicals

My recent job has been very different as I only teach to students online. This has possessed me with many new skills and has prompted me to share these skills with other students online.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $32/h

Details

Rates will differ depending needs. e.g if you just want your coursework checked then the rate could be cheaper. This will be discussed in the first lesson
