About me

I'm Sam and I'm studying economics at Bath. I started my degree in 2016 and went straight to university after taking my A2s. I chose economics because I enjoy the real-world aspect of the subject - I find using analytical and mathematical skills to help me understand what is happening in the world and I personally find this rewarding. I found that during my exams being able to ask more specific questions in a one-on-one situation really helped me to further my understanding of topics...

I'm Sam and I'm studying economics at Bath. I started my degree in 2016 and went straight to university after taking my A2s. I chose economics because I enjoy the real-world aspect of the subject - I find using analytical and mathematical skills to help me understand what is happening in the world and I personally find this rewarding. I found that during my exams being able to ask more specific questions in a one-on-one situation really helped me to further my understanding of topics and I would love to be able to help others to do this! I would structure my tutorials around the tutee - it is how I liked to be taught! I often found in lessons that teachers would assume knowledge of particular area and skip this aspect, I always found this to be frustrating as my understanding is often damaged by this. I would adjust my speed of teaching to what the tutee is comfortable with. I would focus on past paper questions as my main tutoring technique - they're an excellent resource to both enhance knowledge and exam technique! When I was revising for my exams, I found that past papers were the thing that aided me the most, especially for maths and economics.

I have built up good tutoring experience whilst being a member of this website; I now have around 40 completed tutorials with happy customers!

About my sessions

As mentioned I feel past paper questions are an invaluable resource - depending on the needs of the tutee, I feel that starting with a past paper, whether they have worked through already or one that we could go through together would be a good way to begin.

I often will insert screenshots of quesiotns, both that I have in my resources but also some that I can quickly source during sessions that the tutee requests!

By doing this, I can get a good feel of the current knowledge and...

By doing this, I can get a good feel of the current knowledge and techniques of the tutee; from there we can decide what areas of the subject are best needed to be worked on; worked examples or other similar exercises would be a useful tool for us to use together from here, this would help to develop the student across specific topics. Periodic past papers can be used as a measure of progress and I would keep a personal record for the student to examine development.

Sam has been tutoring my son for a year, and he’s been reliable and super helpful. I can’t thank him enough. My son is engaged and upbeat about impending exams.
