Richard Coward’s Classroom

Director of Studies


I focus on helping students who want to understand politics and economics.

About Me

I studied politics, philosophy and economics at Wadham College, Oxford before taking a further degree in economics at the London School of Economics and then briefly worked for the Government Economic Service at the British Foreign Office. Since then I’ve taught economics and have written four mystery thrillers. I also contribute to Fair Observer and am Secretary of the West Norfolk Liberal Democrats.
