Interview with Mike

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Mike — I started tutoring 8 years ago following the retirement from my position of Finance Director within the SME sector.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Mike — I primarily teach Accounting & Finance at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, plus Corporate Finance modules to MBA students. I also cover most modules required for the accountancy profession (CIMA, ACCA, AAT).
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Mike — Most definitely inspired by those who started at the very bottom, i.e. Investment bankers such as Jamie Dimon (head of J.P. Morgan) and Lloyd Blankfein (CEO Goldman Sachs)
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Mike — Ability to communicate in simple language (specially complex concepts), patience and empathy, specially towards students under much exam pressure.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Mike — Hard work always pays off, eventually.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Mike — Those students from a non-numerical background who arrive disheartened, but who subsequently leave with much confidence.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Mike — Teaching itself is rewarding at many levels but finance in general is a passion of mine.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P)?
Mike — My success rate with students is very high and most return seeking help with later levels in their chosen subjects.
