Andrew Merrick

BA(Hons), PGCE

I am an Economics graduate and qualified teacher with over 30 years’ experience. I have delivered a range of Social Science subjects including Business Studies, Sociology and Law, but my focus has always been the teaching of Economics. Since 2001, I have been Head of the Social Science Faculty and sole teacher of GCSE/A Level Economics at a large secondary school on the Isle of Man. I am also an Assistant Examiner for Cambridge Assessment International Examinations, with over 10 years’ experience of marking A Level and IGCSE papers. Finally, I have provided A Level Economics private tuition for many years, guiding and supporting many students to exam success.

My main motivators in teaching are to inspire students to share my passion for Economics and the insight it gives them into the workings of the modern world, and to help students prepare for success in examinations by providing them with formative, developmental feedback and guidance.

Outside of the classroom my main interests are in outdoor activities, predominantly sea kayaking and cycling. I am a qualified sea kayaking coach and leader and have kayaked extensively in the UK, Norway and Canada. I also enjoy travelling with my wife in our campervan. We have two grown-up children who have now left home.

It is an honour to be a tutor at Wolsey Hall and I look forward to helping and guiding you towards a successful outcome in Economics.
