• BA (Hons) Accounting
I contacted Phil for help as I was finding my finance module completely bewildering and I knew I was heading for a fail. We worked through the syllabus week by week and with Phil's tutoring I gradually started to understand the concepts and it began to make sense.
I went into the exam feeling quietly confident and was delighted then to pass with a distinction. I would recommend Phil to anyone - he has a great teaching style and was able to explain things in words that made sense to me - someone with no previous finance background.
I began my Business Management & Marketing degree last year which included 2 modules covering accounting and finance. Having had no experience in this field I attempted to complete the modules on my own, however as a distance learning student I found much of the content very difficult to understand. It was at this point I decided to look online for a tutor who would be able to visit me at home at a convenient time who would be able to help with the studies.
Since meeting with Phil I have now successfully passed both modules with over 70% in both. He made what was a very confusing subject to me much easier to understand by using a range of concepts which I could use and easily remember when I went into the exam room.
I would highly recommend using Phil if you are encountering any difficulties with any areas of your accounting studies.
Phil has helped me immensely throughout the latter parts of my accounting and finance course. His teaching enables a better understanding of confusing subjects, by drawing upon real life examples, simplifying explanations and ensures that they are easily remembered. While working with Phil my exam technique, overall knowledge and enjoyment within the subject had increased exponentially
Hi Phil, thank you for the online classes you provided on the run up to my CIMA E2 retake exam. I need to build up my confidence going into that exam and your classes provided that. I thought you had a good way of explaining frameworks and giving good up to date examples to help make it easier to understand. I now have the joy of strategic so will be looking for some help with that on the run up to November.
Thought I would let you know, I have passed uni finally! Managed to get a 2.1 in the end!
Thanks again for all your help.
