Frequently Asked Questions

Revision textbooks are a useful resource. However, students with different learning styles (or shorter attention spans) may need a more varied,  engaging and interactive way to learn.

The video tutorials recreate the experience of having your own teacher to explain and support your learning. 

Furthermore, graphics, dynamic diagrams, sound effects, images and video bring the learning to life. 


I’ve been a teacher for ten years and spent the last five years teaching CAIE business at A-level and IGCSE. I’ve been an international Business examiner for the last three years.

I’ve used the Cambridge recommended textbooks, and they offer a lot of value to students and teachers. But I wanted to go one step further and use the power of technology to offer my experience as a teacher, and allows students to interact with the syllabus in a more engaging and fun way.

You can find more about my skills and experience here

There are lots of amazing free resources on YouTube, however, I know from my time as a classroom teacher it’s is not focused on Cambridge International examinations and doesn’t tell you the specifics of how to score full marks in every question. Furthermore, all the content is up to date

Not only will your subscription give you the edge in Cambridge International Business, but allow me to carry on making content to help students on both free and premium packages.

Sample lessons are available for free here, you can use the knowledge check-up to find your knowledge gaps.

You can also find extracts from the video tutorials here.


Research has shown that the highest performing students learn and study consistently through the year and don’t leave it all to the last minute.

By getting to grips with the content as they learn it builds a strong base for achieving the highest grades in the final exam.

Furthermore, higher level skills like analysis, evaluation and problem solving need time to nurture and develop over time in order to be successful.

“Exclusive” past paper questions are based precisely on the 2020 IGCSE syllabus but unique to A* Essentials members. You won’t have completed these questions before so are guaranteed the most authentic exam preparation. 


You can cancel your monthly subscription at any time in your “my account page”

Your annual subscription has to be renewed, so it’s a one-off payment. I’ll send a reminder that your plan is coming to a close, but there is no need to cancel. 


I’ve been an international examiner* for the last three years and taught CAIE Business for the last six years in both Europe and Asia. 

Marking exams is incredibly boring (as you can imagine) but it gives an unparalleled insight into how to score the highest results, and how to help students to avoid common mistakes.
