Very experienced teacher and recent, former Head of Department. Tutoring for all aspects of Business and Economics up to A-Level.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
Economics, and Business, up to and including A-level or equivalent i.e. also Pre-U or IB
Tell me about your qualifications.
BA Economics (2:1)
Also post-graduate qualifications in Economic Development, and Education Leadership & Innovation.
What kind of experience do you have?
10 Years as a successful Head of Department at a top 100 independent school, I only left this post in August 2016 in order to take a career break.

Experience of teaching A-Level Business, and Economics for 20 years. Have also taught to GCSE level. I also have many years experience as an examiner at A-Level.

Additionally, have taught basic skills numeracy, and GCSE Maths in previous years, so happy to work to that level - particularly with those who find Maths challenging.
How much do you charge?
£35 ph for Economics and Business
£30 ph for Maths up to GCSE
Where do you teach?
Stockport area, will also consider A6 route towards Manchester if I'm traveling to you.

Preferred option is to teach at my home as I'm a wheelchair user. However, I will consider travel to a student's home if near access to public transport, or not far away from me.
When are you available?
Very flexible as I'm taking a year out for a career break, so really any weekdays, evenings, and weekends with agreement between us.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
Age 15+, right up to adult learners.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Specialist A-level teacher, was Head of Business and Economics at a top 100 independent school until very recently when I decided to take a career break.

Also happy to offer GCSE in the above subjects, and up to GCSE Maths.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes I do. This is of course completely clean, and I am on the updating service.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
Happy to do this either by email correspondence, webcam etc.
Where and with whom did you train?
University of Bolton, completed PGCE in 1995.
