About Laurence

Qualified Chartered Certified Accountant (ACCA). Original teaching qualification was a City and Guilds 7307, but my qualification has been updated and upgraded to a Post Graduate Certificate in Higher Education (level 7) –Accounting, Banking, and Finance. I am also a qualified assessor (level 3) with an A1 certification. Professional memberships include: Fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants, and Chartered Associate of the London Institute of Banking and Finance.

 

Teaching Approach

Through years of practical experience, I am very comfortable in bringing lessons to life. I can draw upon personal experience (some of which is amusing), and even amusing  anecdotes from third parties. Very caring and altruistic, and I provide free materials to students. I believe in education rather than learning, meaning that I do not believe that lesson material should be restricted to just helping a student pass an exam, but I believe it should go beyond that, to be useful perhaps even in future employment. I pride myself in the grades achieved by my students with more than a 75% pass rate, and A Level students generally reaching A or B grades. I am very committed and reliable.

 

Personal Interests

I have included first world war history in  my “subjects taught” because I have written a biography (not yet published) about my grandfather, which needed extensive research into the first world war. The story deserves to be made into a film, and I have researched this possibility. Have been a football supporter for 60 years, and some of this come across with examples in my lesson material. With my accountancy knowledge and interests in football, it follows that I have a great interest in football finance. A former treasurer of the Football Supporters Association (London Branch). Now engaged in writing a book on Business Ethics, and have just been offered a contract from a publisher.
