I give online lessons to A-level and undergraduate students in economics. My goal is to raise your grade.
I try to identify your barriers to getting high grades early on. For example these issues could be timing in exams, exam technique, issues with understanding subject content. From years of answering students' questions on subject content and exam technique, I know how to help students on these points for economics specifically.
My academic and professional experience in economics gives me deep knowledge of economics. This covers microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics up to and including undergraduate level, for the very best universities.
I prepare specifically to help your exam board or your particular module. I have knowledge of how to do well in Edexcel, AQA and OCR specifications for Economics A-level. When it comes to undergraduate economics, I research into the particular module you have chosen, read your lecture slides and try to provide help that is as specific to your course as possible. This includes helping on specific dissertation ideas.
I know how to score high marks in exams and how to help others score well. Beyond my economics degrees at Cambridge, I have also achieved 5A*s and 1A at A-level, 11A*s at GCSE. I hope this speaks for itself as evidence that I know what it takes to improve your exam performance.
I hope you will find me friendly and competent but also very determined to help you improve your grades.
I spent four years studying Economics at Cambridge at undergraduate and Master's level, achieving a distinction in my Master's. I have worked as an economist in London.
I have helped answer economics questions for five years and been involved in supporting Economics Oxbridge applications for the last five years also. I have recently expanded this work to include online tuition. My economics tuition has been well received so far and so I have been able to become a full-time economics tutor.
In terms of my knowledge of undergraduate economics modules, I have tutored students in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics, as well as in optional modules and dissertations. In my own academic experience at the University of Cambridge, I have taken six microeconomics modules, five macroeconomics modules and seven econometrics modules of varying degrees of difficulty. This gives me a good knowledge of the ins and outs of undergraduate economics.
When it comes to A-level economics, I have experience dealing with different exam boards and achieving improvements in student test scores. I have a lot of practice in explaining difficult concepts so that they can be understood and marking my students' exam questions, giving concrete actions to boost exam performance.

Perfect! Had an unbelievable understanding of Econometrics and complex topics which he could explain every detail of. Particularly for a layman, he made topics simpler.
Oscar is a fantastic student to work with - he is hard-working, asks good questions and has an eye for the details.
Tom is very knowledgable and passionate about his subject area, which inspires passion in his students too. From Tom’s help, I not only improved in the subject but found I was able to enjoy it more, once I understood. He is very keen to make sure you fully understand the subject matter and won’t stop coming up with creative ways to explain a concept until you have got it. He has a great background knowledge to draw upon as well, which has been great for my slightly niche uni modules and critiquing my dissertation. He is a stats whizz too! Could not recommend Tom’s help enough!
Tom helped me with economics lessons in Masters level, very patient, could explain hard concepts in an easy way, definitely recommend!
Tom explains topics in a way that is simple and easy to understand, he gave very detailed feedback for each paragraph in my essays highlighting areas that I needed to improve in and also sending any resources that would help me get a better understanding of the subject. I'd 100% recommend!
An exceptional tutor! Tom and I discussed personal statements where he gave me multiple suggestions on how to reduce my character count (which I'd really struggled with previously) as well as perceptive comments about my content. Moreover, Tom provided me with university application advice which was beyond insightful and of major help to me. I really would recommend Tom as a tutor; he's kind, organised, dedicated & above all, genuinely wants his students to succeed.
