Our A Level Economics Tutors
A Level Economics is an exciting subject which introduces students to markets, business strategies, economic theory, price mechanisms and much more. Of all the subjects to study at A Level, it is one of the most topical and politically relevant. Students often encounter Economics for the first time in Sixth Form, when they decide to take it for A Level. It is common, therefore, for teenagers to find the course unfamiliar and somewhat daunting. Our A Level Economics tutors are here to give pupils the support and confidence they need to flourish in this new area of study. Providing strong grounding in both micro and macro economics, our tutors impart their knowledge with passion and lucidity, and are committed to helping students excel in their exams.
All of our A Level Economics tutors have expert subject knowledge and years of experience. Many of our tutors have worked in business themselves, and are well acquainted with the theoretical concepts and practical realities of Economics. Our tutoring team also consists of first class Oxbridge graduates and qualified teachers who have worked at top private schools. Dedicated and inspiring, our tutors bring out the best in every student, helping them to think and reason like economists.
At Hampstead and Frognal Tutors, we have a rigorous, multi-stage recruitment procedure. Applicants must first supply two references and proof of their qualifications and identity. If we like what we see, we will interview the candidate in person and ensure they own an up-to-date DBS certificate. Our tutors are also offered continual training opportunities, which allow them to continually develop their teaching styles.
How our Tutors Teach Economics
A Level Economics assesses students in a range of different ways. Teenagers are required to evaluate data, interpret graphs, carry out mathematical calculations and produce essays. At Hampstead and Frognal Tutors, we know that no two students are the same. Different topics and questions will prove challenging for different pupils. Unlike school lessons, therefore, our bespoke tuition is crafted to suit the needs of the individuals we teach. Whether your child struggles with Maths, needs help with essay writing or simply wants to consolidate their knowledge, our tutors are here to help.
Our Economics tutors are very familiar with the A Level exam boards and ensure students understand all the requirements of the syllabus. When your child opens the exam paper, therefore, they know they will be able tackle all the questions with confidence. Our tutors also assist with exam technique and revision strategies, allowing students to achieve the highest mark they possibly can. At Hampstead and Frognal Tutors, however, we do more than improve students’ grades. All of our Economics tutors are passionate about their subject, and their enthusiasm is infectious. Sixth Form is a time for students to develop their intellectual interests, and our tutors want to spark a life- long love of economics in those they teach.
Face-to-face tutoring is not the only kind of tuition we offer. Our A Level tutors regularly deliver lessons online via Skype. If you live outside of London, or overseas, this can be a fantastic alternative to more traditional teaching methods. We currently have hundreds of students around the world.
