Based in England, with over 25 years of teaching experience in Colleges and Universities. Extensive online experience, including the Open University and other international providers, so expert in Blackboard and Moodle.
Prior to becoming an academic I worked for 15 years in industry, some in sales, but mostly marketing, then general management. Have been a director of three businesses and run my own small business, so have lots of practical experience, too.
Most knowledge and expertise in Strategy, International Business and Marketing.
Contact can be in real time, but most classes would be asynchronous.
Happy to work at any level - A level through to doctorate.
I am expert at making clear the nature of the task, and how to structure working through it.
In my 25 years, I have 15 years of working online, with students literally from all over the world.
I have taught tens of thousands of undergraduates in these subject areas, many thousands of postgraduates, too. I have also helped over 400 Masters students to complete their dissertations, and have 8 completions at Doctoral level, with two more current ones close to finishing.
Many Dissertation students have gone on to earn distinctions or merits for their work, and I have achieved pass rates of 95% with classes of more than 450 students.
These are average rates.
For face to face where I travel, rates would be: A Level and College £28; Undergraduate £33; Postgraduate and Doctoral work £40
For Skype and webcam lessons, rates would be: A Level and College £25; undergraduate £28; Postgraduate and Doctoral work £33
