My Approach to Private Tuition
Economics is often described as the “dismal science”. That is such a shame because economics is actually an incredibly exciting subject, which touches on themes and subjects across school curriculums and beyond – from politics and history, to mathematics and business management.
I try to make economics as engaging as possible by constantly tying in economic theories and concepts to real-world examples and current affairs, helping students realise the relevance of the economics they are learning.
I also have a strong focus on student interaction which helps me assess the exact needs of the student and build their confidence over time.
Finally, I offer a holistic service which takes into account the student’s overall goals. Whether it is trying to get into a top university or score a dream job, I am able to offer and guidance beyond simply teaching a single subject.
