About the lesson

I offer 1-to-1 Zoom calls & class based tutorials that are easy to understand and offer step by step guidance tailored to beginners.

Bitcoin and crypto is a technical subject that has a lot of confusing jargon; however I will break everything down into plain English and at your own pace. I focus mainly on teaching the fundamentals of Bitcoin / crypto and how best to invest in the space. I also explain the things to avoid doing, outlining my own mistakes that ultimately cost me time and money when initially investing into Bitcoin/ Crypto.

I also have made my own course materials that you can refer to after our sessions which contain handy links to video's that help explain things even further.

Please note : I do not offer Financial advice. I simply explain the best ways to get into bitcoin & crypto. Any investment decisions you take are your own choice and I am not liable for any outcomes that follow.

    When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?

    I discovered crypto in early 2019 and have been learning about the space ever since. It wasn't until 2021 that I felt I had acquired enough knowledge on the subject to be able to offer tutoring.

  • 02

    Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).

    I Teach all things crypto but mainly how to get started investing in it. I like to tailor the format of my lessons to the individual and allow them the freedom to ask the questions and start the lessons from any starting point they want.

  • 03

    Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?

    My old social sciences teacher at college, Mr Dunn was inspirational to me as he used to be a plumber and changed career to become a teacher. He was also very approachable and always made the subject interesting and engaging which is what I try to do in my lessons.

  • 04

    What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?

    I think you need to be able to break something down into it's simplest form in order to clearly explain it. I also think you need to be enthusiastic about the subject in order to engage pupils.

  • 05

    Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.

    I had one pupil who was in his late 60's who wanted to know more about bitcoin and crypto. After his first lesson he said he didn't trust crypto so I took an additional 10 mins to further explain all the risks / propaganda surrounding crypto & eventually put his mind at ease. He now has regular lessons with me and has invested some money into Bitcoin.

  • 06

    What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?

    I find the main challenge is making sure people know that I don't offer any financial advice. I can explain things to do and tell you what works for me but Im afraid I can't offer any financial advice

  • 07

    Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?

    My main passion is teaching people how to become financially independent

  • 08

    What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?

    I feel I am approachable and do my upmost to work around my pupils and let them decide on the format of the lessons. I also feel I am dedicated on explaining things until the pupil fully understands it & pride myself on offering a good teaching experience
