I have over 25 years experience of teaching both Economics and History at A level in schools and as a private tutor. I also teach Politics at A level. I have an excellent record of students achieving top grades and will supply references on request.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have an Honours degree from York University and a PGCE to teach both Economics and History from Leicester University. When I took A levels myself I achieved A, A, B, B, C as well as S level distinction in both Economics and History. (certificates available on request). I keep up to date with changes in all relevant syllabuses e.g. last summer I attended AQA courses about the new Economics syllabuses.

- Where do you teach?

- When are you available?
All weekday afternoons and evenings and Saturday daytime.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I have a proven track record of students achieving a clear understanding and top grades. You might find a cheaper tutor but I do not believe you will find a better value tutor with whom you will cover so much so quickly and thoroughly or with whom you will improve your grades so dramatically.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught Economics and History since 1990. I was responsible for introducing History and Economics as A-level subjects at Waddesdon Secondary School Buckinghamshire and am currently responsible for A level Economics and History at Sackville School Kent. At Sackville School, which is noted for its small class sizes, last year Economics students achieved A* and B (ALIS predictions of C) and the year before Economics students also achieved A* and B (ALIS predictions of B and C). I have written textbooks both for Economics and History and have very wide experience of tutoring AQA, Edexcel and OCR Economics and History. I was an A level examiner for AQA for over a decade.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
I have a PGCE in teaching History and Economics from the University of Leicester.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
As well as A level students who are seeking extra help with their courses at school I also have one student who left school last year and is studying purely with me to get the top grades they need for their chosen university and a 44 year old who is taking GCSE and A level Economics in order to then go on to study a PGCE with a view to teaching themselves.
• BA (Hons)
On the way home from Keith's lessons, my son would chatter away enthusiastically about all that he had learned. It was always such a pleasure to see my son suddenly feeling more and more positive about his learning.
With a forecast grade of an 'E', my son went on and passed his GCSE exam with a few marks off an 'A'.
I can honestly say that it is amongst the BEST money I have ever spent!
Just wanted to let you know I moved from a C to an A thanks to your
tutoring in Economics and am now off to Newcastle!
Thank you very much for everything.
I got an A in Economics and somehow got a B in History. Thank you for everything.
