In recent years I have been working very successfully as a tutor of both Maths, to GCSE level, and Economics and Business at A level.  

I am a qualified Teacher of Economics and Maths having started my teaching career at a top Sixth Form College with A-level Economics and Business Studies as my areas of specialism. In more recent times I have worked in the Maths Department of a local ‘outstanding’ secondary school. My role was to provide specialist support for those requiring additional help with their Maths in Years 7 through to 13.

As well as this academic experience I have had a long career in the Financial Services and IT industries including senior management positions. This has given me great insight into how academic subjects can be successfully applied in the workplace.  My approach to tutoring is to spend time fully understanding the exact nature of support needed, and then exploring practical methods for improving performance and results. Recognising that each student is unique, the key to success is to ensure that the individual understands and is fully confident in using the agreed approach.



I want to thank you very much for all your help through the sessions, I really feel that I have learnt a lot and feel much more confident in my knowledge of economics going into the first year of university. .... Thanks again, I really appreciate all the work you have done with me.

David was instrumental in helping my son turn a U grade at mock stage in business A level into a B.  His approach to tutoring was perfect for Charlie and enabled him to develop the skills he needed to far exceed his own expectations, and he is now looking forward to studying Sports Business Management at Uni. We would not hesitate to recommend David as a tutor.

Mr Bean gave me so much confidence that I got a grade 6 in maths - I still can’t quite believe it!
