I have been a business teacher and examiner for 20 years. I am a current Head of Business at the top school in Derbyshire, but I only work part-time so that I am free to run my publishing, resource writing and tutoring company, Revisionstation. Please follow me on twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
My tutoring style is fun, but working with purpose. In my opinion Business is the best subject to teach, as each topic brings something new and exciting. Even after 20 years teaching it I am always learning something new. It is dynamic, and so companies are always changing, expanding, merging and even closing. I might encourage tutees to investigate the demise of Debenhams, Patisserie Valerie or even Toys R Us, looking for the reasons behind the closure.
As well as teaching, I also run a business resources company, so I have access to first class teaching materials to suit all styles of learning. I read the business news every day and I encourage all my tutees to do the same. We can then discuss Brexit and impact on trade blocs, tariffs and protectionist policies, or Walkers new crisp flavours and how this is an example of product life cycle extension.
I have lots of sample questions and access to a huge bank of resources that most schools and colleges do not have. I have a wealth of experience with two decades as a business examiner. I can help boost your marks with very little extra effort, with inside tips and hints to help improve your exam technique to maximise your potential.
Hope to hear from you soon.
My name is Sarah Hilton and I have been teaching business for 20 years now. I have also been a GCSE Business examiner for nearly two decades. I have a degree in business and a PGCE in Secondary business education. I am currently a Head of Business and Enterprise at a leading school in Derbyshire where I work part-time. For 10 years I have also run my own business which is a teaching resources publishing company, and I have won awards for my writing. In 2015 my business department won best A level business results in the UK.
I have two children, both at University and one rather chonky cat called Stevedini who sits on the desk while I write. Although originally from Brighton, I now live in a Derbyshire village.
I love to laugh and tell terrible jokes, I also try and teach myself something new every week, this week I am learning to use Microsoft OneNote. I think lessons should be enjoyable and fun, and that business is, by far, the very best subject that you will ever study!
