“Give me a one-handed economist, all my economists say, ‘on the one hand...on the other.'”—Hardold Truman
All tutors are regularly interviewed to ensure they are up to date with our unique tuition methodology and the demands of each exam specification.
Helen says: "Performing well in an Economics exam isn't just about memorising the content; it's about being able to apply it to different, real-world examples. Mark schemes for essays only give indicative points, often making it difficult for students to mark their own work. This is where one-to-one tuition can prove invaluable.
As well as helping with the writing and structure of your essays, I hold a wealth of experience when it comes to what exam-boards are looking for. My lessons typically involve analysing an essay a student has written in depth, looking at both what is already good and what can be improved. In many cases, very small additions can make a huge difference to a mark."
In Helen's free time she likes to run ultra-marathons (that's 100 miles!)—as if a humble 26.2 weren't enough!
Helen has been teaching economics at GCSE and A level for 20 years and counting. She presently works at a UK selective school for boys and is head examiner for several exam-boards at A level.
