Hi I'm Wilfred! I had been a part-time teacher at a UK top 25 independent school, while tutoring and teaching 50+ students. With experience as an A-Level Examiner for AQA and OCR, I have a thorough understanding of assessment criteria. Before all that, I graduated from LSE with a BSc. Economics degree. Having achieved 5A*/As in my A-Levels, I focus on teaching Economics for IB, A-Levels, and GCSE. I strive hard to keep students intrigued and motivated with my teaching, while balancing that with exam technique and practice. I believe real learning is fun, intriguing and innate to our natural curiosity.
Having tutored and taught 50+ students over 2.5 years, I believe the role of a tutor is much more than helping the student understand the course material in a clear and succinct way. Instead, planning ahead to achieve short to long term objectives with the student, such as a target predicted grade is especially important in motivating the student. Apart from having expert knowledge in the subject and the required assessments, a great tutor is an empathetic counsellor, an unrelenting coach and an inspirational mentor at the same time.
As I put an emphasis on understanding the varying needs of each student, my lessons are personalised planned differently each time. Depending on the student’s grade, ability and work ethic; I tend to recommend a different amount of contact hours depending on the academic objective desired. What I find really rewarding is the camaraderie I share with my tutees, and my success in increasing their confidence and motivation towards the subject.
In terms of school admissions, I have helped students receive offers from top business schools, including London Business School and Cass Business School with a 83% success rate. Of course, my personal experience of receiving 4 out of 5 offers to study Economics at top universities such as LSE and Warwick also helps, in addition to having directly worked with the admissions team at London Business School.
My experience teaching at a top 25 UK independent school and examining for the UK GCE A-Levels enable me to plan ahead of the student’s learning at school, while ensuring that the student can demonstrate their ability confidently in the exam. A very effective way to acquire a decent grade is consistent exam practice with regular feedback from an examiner’s perspective, which I can provide. Throughout the years, I have also developed key ways to help students understand and simplify complex Economics and Mathematical concepts.
On average, my students improve by 2 grades given sufficient contact time and hard work. I have tutored students from top schools including St. Paul Girls’ School, Merchant Taylors’ School and Hampton School. I believe one of the reasons why 95% of my students continue to have a second lesson with me, is the fact that I received tutoring for 12+ years of my life. Hence, I understand how it feels to be on the other end of the table.
Here are some of my feedback and references:
“Hands down the best! After a long search for a quality Economics tutor I started with Wil. First of all he is a Wizard in his field, but the extra work he does to make sure you understand, and further have the study materials you need is amazing. This is the difference between the good and the great... He told me the grade I was looking at, at the end of all of our sessions. This is the exact grade I received when I checked my exam results, and it got me into university!” From an A-Level Economics Student
“We are very pleased with Wilfred’s Lessons. There is visible preparation prior to his lesson to the student. Bespoke analysis to the student at hand. Dedicated examples throughout the lesson. Proper review of homework.” From a Parent
"Hands down the best teacher I've ever had. In just a few lessons Wilfred taught me everything I was confused about in IB Macro and Micro economics. I had a really struggle with diagram and for a while year I couldn't score highly on test because of that, and Wilfred explained it to me in a way that made much more sens than any of the teachers I ask. I'm quite a handful as a student, I get frustrated very fast and give up really easily too, my teacher told me that she couldn't help me because I just couldn't be taught. But again Wilfred made me feel comfortable and told made me realise that it was ok that I was struggling and that I COULD succeed. Thank you so much! I would recommend him to all of my classmates and to anyone who needs help! :)" From an IB Economics Student
