"Right On The Money"

 

The basic economic problem is scarcity - and scarcity of time in your studies will inevitably lead to shortfalls in the knowledge and  techniques you need to gain competitive advantage in an Economics course. These shortfalls can spiral into massive deficits that reduce your allocative efficiency when facing opportunity cost decisions about how to invest for maximum utility and a healthy return on your studies. My classes aim to have a multiplier effect on your assets and enhance your capacity utilisation. If you are willing, I can assess your needs and turn any burgeoning recession into an upswing and boom in time for examination success.

 

My Economics classes guide students through the UK curriculum examination phases at AS / A-Level as well as the IB (International Baccalaureate) at both SL and HL.

 

Classes can be either via Skype or in person at my house in Ham, with visits to student's homes being available according to previous arrangement and subject to my availability.

 

Study sessions can be 45 or 60 minutes in duration. Intensive examination preparation days - usually at weekends - are available for a limited time preceding the June examination period.

  

 

Examination Boards And Syllabus Numbers

 

The following are the examination boards and syllabuses that I have taught and which I know intimately, thereby enabling me to help students ensure that they can fully understand what is expected of them and access the best grades possible with maximum enjoyment.

 

The syllabuses shown below can be clicked and saved - just choose the one that you are studying and highlight the areas that you would like to review:

 

 

 

GCE A-S / A-Level Economics

 

NB The Economics syllabuses have been altered due to UK government demands which means that currently both the older and the newer syllabuses are running concurrently. It's important to ensure that you have the right syllabus to cover what will appear in the final examinations so double-check with your school!

 

EDEXCEL (Pearson)

 

The Older Version

 

  • If you started to study in September 2014 or earlier then this is your syllabus

 

  • The older version of the Economics syllabus for EDEXCEL combines both AS (Advanced Subsidiary 8EC01) and A2 (9EC01). The first leads to an AS qualification - usually completed in one year of study - and the A2 option can be added to access the full A-Level qualification. This is now being phased out and replaced by Pearson Edexcel A level Economics A (9EC0) and Pearson Edexcel A level Economics B (9EB0) with first certification from June 2017
