Andrew Mitson

Teacher at London School of Economics & Economics Tutor 


Award-winning class teacher at the London School of Economics (LSE), Graduate A-Level examiner & Co-Founder of Up Learn.

I recently received the LSE Class Teacher Award for "excellent teaching" and "outstanding student feedback", and was listed in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 for my work in education.

After dropping out of school at 16, I achieved 4 A*s in my self-studied A Levels and won the Harvard Prize for scoring 98% at AS Level. I graduated from LSE with the highest mark out of 1400+ students in my 2nd year, winning the Economics Examiner Prize and the Rishi Madlani Award for Macroeconomics.

Over the last 7 years, I have taught 200+ students privately, 3000+ students through my online courses, and accrued ~10,000 hours of teaching experience.


Andrew gave me a few key tips on how to study for an extremely content heavy exam in a very short space of time. I implemented them as faithfully as possible and I went from full blown panic to getting 93% in the space of 2 months.

He really knows his stuff. Listen to what he says.

I'm a 4th year at University and it's the day before my essay deadline when I think all hope is lost as I still have lots to cover. I come across Andrew's profile and decide to ask for help in advice and writing. We open Google Doc and he stays up with me all night hammering away. His advice was nothing short of 1st Class standard. With his input, the essay received an incredible 81%. Fast forward 3 weeks and he helped me with my 30 page business plan report which received 76%. Sometimes it was almost as if he cared more about the assignment more than I did! Andrew immediately understands what the requirements are and tackles them head-on, leaving the markers an easy job to award top glass grades. He really was a game-changer for me. Highly, highly recommend!
