Teaching & Tutoring Experience

I have taught Economics and Business Studies at both GCSE and A- Level for 21 years within the state sector, holding a range of positions: Head of Department, Head of Sixth Form, Assistant Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Acting Headteacher. I examine in both subjects for all major UK examination boards in addition to working for International Awarding Bodies. Before training to teach, I worked within the UK Government Economic Service and a City of London Investment firm.

“ I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful work that you have been doing with O for the last couple of months. Your organised approach, combined with your evident knowledge has brought back the confidence for the subject in O. I have often overheard you motivating her ever so gently to stretch herself and honestly, that works. ”

“ J has his last lesson with Sean this evening. He has been amazing, not only in his tutorials, but also in supporting J in a much more holistic way. We are a huge advocate of all that he has done. ”

“ Mr Preston tutored my son A for approximately 10 months following his examinations in the Lower Sixth. As a consequence, he was able to raise his grade from a middling C to a grade A. That allowed him to gain a place at his first-choice University where he read Business and French. He has since gone on to work for a number of multinational companies, and is now living with his family in Geneva and is employed at CERN. Without Mr Preston's help both A and I are sure the outcome would not have been so positive. Sean was able to both guide and inspire my son in his studies. He showed a wealth of knowledge of the subject and, more importantly, focused expertly on examination technique. I have great pleasure in recommending him as a tutor and mentor for any Economics student. ”

“ I was struggling with my economics A level, but after a few lessons with Sean I can already see the difference in my grades and quality of writing - saying that, I noticed the change almost immediately after the first! Sean excels at explaining advanced concepts in concise, digestible ways which bring absolute clarity to the topic in question, and really goes above and beyond in helping you understand the principles behind economic mechanisms. If you need a tutor, I couldn't recommend him enough. ”
