Leo

Economics
A LevelA Level (AS)

Background

Leo achieved a 2:1 in Economics and Finance at the University of Southampton and now has an extensive corporate sales, marketing, and investing background which helps him provide real-world context to the syllabus as he teaches it. He believes it’s important that students realise the real-world significance of what they’re learning, as well as preparing tactically for the exam.

In his spare time he reads, looks for investment opportunities, performs stand-up comedy, and writes & produces music for himself and others.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE & APPROACH

Leo is a tutor with 7 years of experience helping students achieve top grades in Economics, as well as helping them to adopt effective learning habits which stay with them for life.

His approach involves tapping into how the human memory works through a number of techniques, including visual/auditory associations, thought experiments, generating emotional spikes, and getting the student to reach their own ‘eureka!’ moments, rather than simply delivering information like their school teachers often do. Combined with good exam technique, these teaching methods ensure Leo’s students feel both passionate about the subject and battle-ready for the exam.

Leo is experienced with all the major exam boards, including OCR, AQA, and Edexcel. In the 2018/2019 academic year, 85% of his pupils achieved an A or an A* in their exams. Leo was also recommended by Expert Tuition to Hasmonean High School to teach Economics to its students.

WHY TUTORING?

The main reason Leo enjoys tutoring is that he finds it immensely satisfying to see students grow in confidence and see their intellect sharpen over time. He’s also fascinated by the science of learning and the art of presenting persuasive arguments. These things were integral in his sales and marketing career and he uses teaching as a means to develop his understanding further, while also passing it on to his students.

Economics A level teaches you how to drill deeper into issues using clear logical steps, evaluate both sides of an argument and prescribe well thought out policy advice – Leo believes these are rare skills to master, and graduates who do are head and shoulders above the rest once they enter the workplace, start their business ventures or whatever else they decide to devote their lives to. He finds it immensely rewarding to see his work make a real difference to people’s lives.
