Swithun manages to make Economics which on the surface is a potentially tedious study of data analysis and half-formed theoretics, into something that is relevant, intriguing, polarising and above all engaging.
Swithun's approach to debate and discussion above all instills a sense of confidence in students to answer questions with conviction, external knowledge and sometimes even a wry smile.
I think I can say with honesty, that without Swithun's tuition, I would never have got an A*.

Swithun has a good knowledge of how the exam papers are marked which allows him to give very useful and specific feedback. This is particularly helpful when it comes to writing essays.
He was also able to offer help and advice in other areas I was struggling for example; looking over my personal statement and helping me to devise a revision timetable.
I would certainly recommend Swithun as an economics tutor, he knows his stuff and there would be no reason not to do well if you put in 100%.
