Personal Message
I am a mature, professional tutor who will quickly understand your weaknesses and your preferred learning style to make the most of your lessons. My lessons are always individualised and well prepared in advance, with plenty of interaction and fun.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I specialise in economics, finance and accounting, as well as writing training. Please note that I do not teach it econometrics/quantitative methods nor maths.
I have been a full time tutor for over 5 years building on my long professional teaching and training experience.
Given my wide-ranging experience, I can provide additional study material for university students who struggle with their own, create visually engaging spreadsheets for those who find finance abstruse, stimulate the intellectual curiosity of my A-level students, create bespoke courses for professionals looking to gain a better understanding of the economics, finance and accounting required in their jobs and act as a knowledgeable and patient tutor for students struggling with their dissertations.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a first class degree and a PhD in economics. I am also a qualified accountant and a Supervisory Analyst (New York Stock Exchange series 16 qualification).
What kind of experience do you have?
Before going freelance, I worked for 10 years in the Research department of Morgan Stanley - assessing economic research for publication and training the department were my core responsibilities.
I have been tutoring in economics for 5 years. During this time, I have tutored at many levels, from AS-level to postgraduate, young people as well as mature students. Please see below to get an idea of the breath of my experience.
