Tutoring Experience

With over 18 years of teaching and tutoring experience, I have had the privilege of guiding students at all levels, from GCSE and A Levels to the university level. Throughout my journey as an educator, I have witnessed the transformative power of education and the joy of seeing my students flourish.

Here are some highlights of my achievements as a tutor in the last academic year:

• 100% of my tutees improved to their expectations. This shows my commitment to their growth and development.

• 6 of my university students achieved 70% or higher in their maths modules. A number of students passed their resit exams in the summer.

• My A-level students in the last academic year, performed very well and successfully admitted to great universities such as Oxford, King's College, Leeds, Newcastle, Warwick, Nottingham, and Imperial.

• I have actively supported 6 students at GCSE level and we managed to improved their grades by a minimum of three grades. They are now continuing with me for their A-levels.

Tutoring Approach

Here I have highlighted some of my key approaches to teaching:

  • Student-Centric Approach:
    I have worked with students from very diverse backgrounds. I Understand that each student is unique, I tailor my approach to satisfy the learning styles of each individual.
    Before we begin our tutorials, I spend some quality time to understand your needs and expectations. By having open conversations with both students and parents, I gain insights and this helps me tailor my teaching style for the best possible outcomes.

  • Practical and Tangible Examples:
    People often ask me what is the application of this or that in my life. I always have millions of examples to give them. I strongly believe that learning is an opportunity to enjoy and becomes effective when students can relate to the subject. Therefore, I always provide practical examples that help complex concepts become more tangible and relatable.
    I have had many occassions were parents or my student's friends have joined our sessions and informed me that they learnt things thye have never learnt in their studies :)

  • Visual Learning Advantage:
    Maths and physics could be tough if we can not imagine what is going on.
    I use visual examples to help students understand complex ideas with clarity and confidence.
    It has proven that my students find it much easier to connect the theories with real-life applications, gaining a deeper understanding of the subject.

  • Step-by-Step Guidance:
    From experience, I understand that complex problems in physics and maths can be hard to dealt with. To help students with these challenges, I show them a structured step-by-step guide to approach problems with confidence.
    This approach not only provides them with better understanding but also boosts their confidence and to me this is an important constructive loop.

  • Patient and Supportive:
    I am known for being super-patient with my students' needs. I believe, actively listening and understanding my student's needs , helm me creating a supportive environment where my students can trust me and be themselves and open up. This is very important so I can get to know their weaknesses and work towards improving them.

  • Flipped Classes for Active Learning:
    I often use flipped classes where students explain concepts to me. This approach proved to help with their understanding. You can explain a thing when you completely get it!

I am passionate about empowering students to reach their full potential and not only do great in Physics and Maths but also love the subjects. If you're looking for a tutor who is dedicated and professional but also caring and understanding, I am here to guide you and be on your side.
