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!

I cannot even begin to describe to you the joys of Andrew’s teaching. He is extremely organised, well prepared and handles every single lesson with remarkable diligence and demonstrated passion for imparting knowledge to his students. I would normally write just a few words for surveys like this - but the impact Andrew’s teaching has had on my motivation to do well in microeconomics, as well as the impact on my grades, has compelled me to write this much!! He is such a good teacher - I would really recommend that he trains other teachers in the economics department— including macroeconomics and first year courses ( this would really improve teaching standards in the department!)
- Mayo Matesun, LSE Economics student
I have been delaying writing this review with the reason being that I actually do not want to share this tutor, because he really is that exceptional.
Please look no further and do not bother wasting time contacting other tutors who will hesitate with reluctance and not reply to your queries causing you a delay. I am very thankful and appreciative of Andrew's support as I unfortunately became struck down with a period of illness and fell behind substantially. With lack of pastoral care and understanding that it takes time to pick up after a period of illness from teachers, I frantically searched for a tutor to help bring things back up to scratch.
Andrew is very talented in what he does and I do continue to praise and wish him a very successful future in this field because he is heading in the right direction - Teaching.
Andrew has patience, support, understanding and expertise on a personal and professional level when relating to a student. His response, timing and efficiency is by far second-to-none and is overall impressive.
It is honestly difficult to critique Andrew, only that there is not more of him and that he is not free either. Overall, my experience of Andrew's tuition service is that he is reliable, knowledgeable in the subject matter, dependable, never fails to deliver. He is clear and concise, organised, productive and efficiently punctual with a genuinely friendly personality. I highly recommend him with no doubt, and I wish I had found him sooner as I have been in similar situations in the past and unfortunately had to endure some pretty awful tutors that are unprepared out there.
Andrew is a true rare find.
- Isabelle, Greenwich University Economics student
Andrew was absolutely excellent in every way. He provided fantastic notes and calm, ordered advice. My son found his sessions enormously helpful.
- Liz Style, Parent of AQA A-Level Economics student
Andrew was excellent when he tutored me for AS economics and helped me achieve 100% full UMS in both my exams. He also continued to be a great help throughout my A2 studies, going out of the way to help me with my successful application for Cambridge Economics. Would recommend him highly!
- Anindita Nag, Edexcel A-Level Economics student
Andrew has truly made studying Economics clearer and less frustrating! I have to say that his notes are concise, straight to the point and structured. After a disappointing AS result, Andrew helped me master the exam technique for my A2 exams and this definitely restored my confidence. He is an excellent tutor and I would highly recommend him!
- Leena Ramesh, AQA A-Level Economics student
After achieving a D in my first Economics mock in December, I almost felt like giving up, and was questioning myself why I ever chose Economics in the first place! I then came across Up Learn on a well-known search engine, to complement my studies. Overall, I found the service exceptional. In particular, the support and motivation offered by Mr Andrew, who is a world class tutor at LSE. They marked individual questions I tackled from past paper questions, as well as help build my strategy to answer 10, 15 and 20 mark questions. Andrew would always spend his time with no constraint. I ended up getting an A at Economics AS as a result.
- Mohit L, Edexcel A-Level Economics student
Andrew helped me with my AS economics, and I couldn't have got my A without him. He made concepts much clearer and went through lots of examples until I understood completely. He also helped me when it came to answering exam questions. I would recommend him very highly!
- Reah Jamnadass, AQA A-Level Economics student
Andrew has tutored my son for his Economics and Lewis found Andrew extremely helpful. They focussed on examination technique, which is exactly what he needed. Andrew also offered support for Lewis if he had any further questions and recommended books to get. Lewis went on to get an A* in his final exams - I would highly recommend Andrew!
- Sue Bizaoui, Parent of Edexcel A-Level Economics student
Andrew is a really nice guy who i had 6 hours with me and a friend for our Microeconomics 2nd year module. He was really helpful and managed to break down big questions into very manageable small concepts. Thanks for everything!
- Max Blackburn, Nottingham University Economics student
Andrew was my economics tutor for two years. I've now finished with an A at AS level (100% in Unit 2) and an A at A2. Within the first few weeks of tutoring I felt a lot more confident in the subject and was receiving some of the highest marks in my class. In our lessons I would bring classwork and homework with me which we would go through until I fully understood the topic and my mistakes. He uses a lot of real world examples and makes up stories which helps to make a complicated topic very easy to understand. He doesn't go too fast and he can tell when you don't understand something. Andrew uploaded the notes taken during our session together to Google drive where I could access them at home whenever I wanted to. Besides the weekly lesson, I could email him whenever I didn't understand something and he would get back to me within a few hours. Lessons missed were made up with Skype calls. He also created a revision guide which had everything you needed to know for your exam. Weekly past paper practice was incredibly helpful. In the weeks leading up to my exams I would make essay plans on a word document and upload it Google drive where he could check my work and add his own comments. Brilliant tutoring and I've now got my place at uni! Thank you Andrew!
- Izzy De Ferrer, Edexcel A-Level Economics student
A great tutor and highly recommended. Andrew went over various topics for me in the space of an hour and dedicated the whole one hour to me (not going off-topic or going on a tangent), constantly helping me on topics I found confusing; I've had experiences where the tutor mostly cares about himself, not the student. Whereas Andrew provided me with tips, not only to do with Mathematics, but help on how I proceed after finishing the course. Although I was knackered, Andrew was thoughtful and clarified if I didn't get something. Andrew's learning method is exceptional, providing me with notes that have recordings embedded. And we went through a step-by-step process, where I instantly became more knowledgeable about the topic after facilitating the basics. I am really looking forward to the next lesson! My confidence has remarkably risen, too!
- Abdul Halim, Birkbeck University Mathematics & Economics student
Outstanding tutor...super bright and super patient and super reliable.
It is clear why he was top of his year at LSE.
- Helen Oratore, Parent of LSE Economics student
Great tutor! He is very professional! He perfectly explain the knowledge. Furthermore, he is very efficient in comparison with standard tutors. He also has a nice personality, friendly and enthusiastic. He is just brilliant and I recommend him to any other students who need economics tuition.
- Dora Zhu, UCL Economics student
Andrew is a thorough, enthusiastic, and reassuring tutor. Having not studied economics before, or mathematics for a number of years, after my first year at university I found myself behind where I needed to be; leading up to my end of year exam, I sought help from Andrew with limited time to spare. He dug deep into my syllabus in order to work efficiently and effectively on only relevant topics, and analyzed my exam specifications in order to maximize our time together. We got to work using an online whiteboard which I found to be much clearer than paper workbooks, and immeasurably beneficial for revision purposes. He paired our lessons with his online learning platform UpLearn, which I was able to work from by myself (spending many hours and days on it) in order to cover key topics which I hadn't fully understood before. I found it to be more effective than a year's worth of tutorials, enabling greater understanding and better retention of foundational material—for any student beginning A-level economics, or starting undergrad without a background in economics, I can't recommend it highly enough! His profile speaks for itself, and if you are in need of clear, focused learning, under a time constraint as I was, then you won't find a better tutor.
- Patrick Wilcock, SOAS Economics student
Andrew is an excellent tutor who is very knowledgeable and conveys his knowledge of complex material in a manner easily understandable. He has been able to quickly assess my level and determine a course of instruction that catered to my needs and goals. Andrew is extremely supportive and expertly assuaged my fears. He always managed to uplift me even when I was most anxious and kept pushing me forward. I would say that Andrew would be a great tutor. Reasons being the following: - knowledgeable - reliable - thorough - pays attention to detail - great communicator - great interpersonal skills - thrives from developing indidivuals
- Ahmed Al Dhaheri, Surrey University Economics student
From fail to first class! Andrew, you are a huge part of my economic success!!! I am now working as a central banker in Malaysia! Failing econ to central banker!!
I still miss our lessons and will never forget you! Thank you so so so much 🙂
- Asya Uzza, LSE London International Programme student
Systematic, well planned and structured sessions. Explains concepts in a clear manner, and makes sure it is understood before moving on to next topic. Within the first few hours with Andrew I clearly understood what I had been struggling to get to grips with in months of lectures. Very highly recommended.
- Vidal Yussuf, Birkbeck University Economics student
I would recommend Andrew as the best tutor I've ever had or heard of. He targets where you really need work on and is very patient and will explain everything you need to know in a way which you'll understand best using stories and examples he relates to you personally. His support out of classes online on Up Learn was outstanding and his exam practice methods are extremely thorough. He helped me bring my Economics grade up from a D and C in my AS modules to straight As at A2 and in my resits, helping me fulfil my university offer. He also offered valuable targeted advice on my personal statement, providing lifesaving rewrites without which I wouldn't have gotten a second glance, let alone an offer to Durham university!
- Nathan Indrakumar, Edexcel A-Level Economics student
After barely a month of weekly classes with Andrew, I managed to achieve an A grade in the Edexcel Unit 1 Economics exam. He not only taught me the entire specification at an incredible pace, but he also taught me exam and study technique to get the best grade possible.
- Maria Fernandez, Edexcel A-Level Economics student
My understanding of economics increased and I was able to enjoy the subject a lot more through the use of case studies. Andrew was really helpful and explained the course content clearly and went into more depth with the subject. Furthermore, he was very supportive and encouraging when it came closer to the exams.
- Aanisha Ghatak, IB Economics student
After struggling with the economics teaching at sixthform, and quickly becoming uninterested about the subject, a friend highly recommended Andrew to me.
After just one session with Andrew he enabled me to grasp the basic concepts which I once before missed, and pick up a clear understanding of economics. Week after week I was making quick progress and started enjoying what I was learning. Andrews clever use of technology in the private tutoring session helped enormously, where he made the notes and an audio clip of our sessions accessible online.
This was especially useful when trying to grasp more difficult concepts within the specification. Andrew also was a great help in answering any questions I had via email and he was always quick to reply.
Andrew never failed to provide me with a clear and precise understanding of aspects throughout the specification. I think Andrew would agree that I had come an extremely long way in just 10 weeks up to the exam. I got an E grade in my January mocks but ended up with a very pleasing B in my actual AS exam!
Andrew is a great tutor and I can highly recommend him!
- Claudia Joyce, AQA A-Level Economics student
After disappointing exams in AS economics where I received a B grade, I began tuition with Andrew. Immediately, his teaching style and focus on exam techniques greatly improved my confidence and ability during my A2 year. He has an excellent understanding of economics and frequently used current affairs to better explain the course content. Andrew was also very helpful in any questions I had and was always very fast to reply. I managed to achieve an easy A* with 95 in Unit 3 and Unit 4. I would highly recommend this great tutor to any other students who needs economic revision.
- Bowen Zhu, AQA A-Level Economics student
Andrew was a fantastic tutor who supplied fantastic notes and advice. By following his detailed and easy to understand revision guide, I was able to achieve 96% in macro and 100% in micro AS level results. Would highly recommend him to any economics students and I shall be using him again for my A2s.
- Julian Style, AQA A-Level Economics student
I would have to highly recommend Andrew as one of the best tutors in London. After days of research to find someone who would be willing to teach 2nd year university Macroeconomics, I finally came across Andrew. As the topics we're not topics tutors teach everyday usually only Alevel Economics, most tutors we're reluctant to take me on. The way how andrew simplified topics for me really helped me understand topics I was struggling with. My lessons would not have been time-eficient & productive if not all due to the time Andrew had put into the lesson beforehand. Thank you soo much Andrew for helping me pass my exam!
- Karendeep Singh, Kingston University Economics student
Andrew has helped our students in Micro and Macro Economics. He is very professional, dedicated and understand each students’ needs. He is able to design a teaching programme for each student and work as a team with our agency. Each student’s goal was attained. We will book them again in September 2015 for our Foundation, University and A Level Students.
- Omur Yeginsu, Future Minds Educational Consultants London
Andrew is an excellent tutor and role model. I can highly recommend him for economics tutoring.
