Principles of Taxation
Principles of Taxation (PoT)
Our PoT tuition breaks the syllabus down into smaller examinable topics. For each topic, our classes explain the key technical points in a simplified, easy to understand way before demonstrating how to answer exam questions on the topic using the ICAEW Question Bank. We also group interrelated topics together to make learning the content much more manageable.
The learning strategies and exam techniques you will be taught are those which enabled your tutor to score 88% in PoT before going on to win several ICAEW prizes at Professional and Advanced Level. This tuition approach has resulted in several of our students also winning prizes.
A small sample of our student feedback is included below:
"Kieran is an excellent tutor. He explained everything so well and clearly so that it was easy to understand the subject and therefore easier to answer the question bank. My knowledge of the subject, especially those areas that I was struggling with have greatly improved under Kieran`s guidance, and I feel much more confident going forward with my learning towards the exam. My performance in the exam I am sure will be greatly enhanced thanks to his teaching and knowledge of the subject and his exam technique. An excellent teacher- I cannot recommend highly enough."
Lowri (Principles of Tax student)
"I was really struggling with the ACA accounting and tax material and Kieran has provided excellent guidance and techniques to help me pass these exams. He`s a very patient tutor and really makes sure that you feel confident going into the exam. Very friendly and always helpful, would highly recommend!"

Having one-to-one tuition with one of our expert PoT tutors enables you to focus on particular areas you struggle to understand. There are some topics in the PoT exam (e.g. basis periods) where students frequently need more intensive support. Therefore, we are pleased to offer one-to-one tuition to provide this intensive support.
Tuition fees are £75 per hour.
