Information About Amir - Paddington tutor - (2 reviews)
This is how 4 referees rated Amir:
I was the Head of A-Levels and Head of Further Maths at Cambridge Education Group. I am a highly qualified maths teacher with many years of experience. I have taught maths and further maths across all age groups and abilities (KS1, KS2, KS3, GCSE, IGCSE, A-Level, University Foundation Programme and Undergraduate). I am one of a handful of teachers in the country to have taught all the A-Level maths and further maths modules both pure and applied (Edexcel, OCR, MEI, AQA and CIE). I have also prepared many students for the 11+, STEP, AEA, MAT, UKMT and BMO. I am currently conducting research with the University of Cambridge in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
In addition to my research I tutor a handful of students each year in London. I enjoy tutoring as it gives me the opportunity to help students to achieve top grades and enjoy the subject as much as I do, no matter their starting point. I have an outstanding track record. My students regularly secure places at the best universities in the country, including Oxford and Cambridge. I have also helped younger students secure places/scholarships at the best schools in the country, including Dulwich and Eton.
I have a Masters in Mathematics (MMath) and a PGCE specialising in maths. I bring an exceptionally high standard of teaching to my lessons. I have officially received “outstanding” rating (the highest possible) for 5 consecutive years for my teaching from Cambridge Education Group. I have also earned numerous awards in recognition of my teaching and maths ability over the years, including the prestigious title of scholar at the “Institute of Mathematics and its Applications”.
I am an associate member of: London Mathematical Society, Royal Statistical Society, Member of Mathematics in Education and Industry, The Mathematical Association, National STEM Centre.
I have extensive experience teaching maths and further maths across all age groups. I have taught students with varying starting points and needs. From helping students prepare for competition maths (UKMT and BMO), university entrance papers (STEP, AEA, MAT and GRE) and school entrance papers (11+), to helping students with English as a second language and those with significant gaps in their education. Here is a list of schools which my former students now attend: Dulwich College, Highgate School, City of London School for Boys, Forest school, Northbridge House School, Eton College as well as several schools from the North London Independent Girls’ Schools’ Consortium.
As the Head of A-Levels at Cambridge Education Group I played a key role in preparing students for university applications, which included help with UCAS application and mock interviews. I know what is required to get offers and secure places at the best universities and have been very successful in this capacity. Here is a list of universities which my former students attend: University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, University of Hong Kong, Imperial College London, LSE, UCL, Durham University, University of Warwick, King's College London and University of Edinburgh.
Where face-to-face tuition is not feasible, my online sessions are the best in the industry. I have invested in the latest technology to ensure students will benefit from outstanding teaching with no compromise during my online lessons. Any potential student interested in online tuition will be offered a free 30-minute **Contact Detail Removed** call, to test the connection and for the student to get a taster of the online sessions. In exceptional circumstances, I am open to international travel.
My experience and research have led me to conclude that all students have the potential to become outstanding mathematicians. My job as a tutor is to honour this claim and help students fall in love with the subject as well.
Maths is, above all, the subject where one thing follows from another, so I start by making sure that students are comfortable with the foundations of maths. This removes significant barriers to learning. Then I build on this foundation by helping students truly understand maths, knowing not only what to do but why. As a subject specialist, this is second nature for me as I have both the breadth and depth of knowledge needed to help students to this end. Finally, I make sure students can transmit their knowledge during examination. With prior experience as an exam writer and an exam marker I know exactly what it takes to succeed.
Having taught nearly a thousand students over the course of my teaching career I appreciate that no two students are the same, so my sessions are tailored to each student. This is where being a subject specialist is crucial as one needs to know a variety of different methods to tackle a given question or explain a given concept. Furthermore, as someone who is actively involved in research I am also able to make maths relevant to my students with real life applications.
For all students, I create a “tutoring plan” which will outline the objectives for our tutoring sessions, a schedule for what we will cover and by when, and any areas that need developing. Furthermore, for those students who commit to frequent tutoring sessions I create a “working folder” that is tailored to their needs. This folder will contain resources and notes from each tutoring session.

Thank you so much for helping mi daughter to achieve her dreams . You helped her so much than now at University she continue using your skills and she is doing great. She is studying Chemistry but Math because is basic in her career . It is helping to understand things quicker. Also Math is now one of her favorite subjects. I think it is because you tought her to see Maths in a different way.
Thank you so much for all your help,
Thank you for the kind words. It was a pleasure working with your daughter and I am happy she is enjoying Oxford. She is very talented and I have no doubt in her ability to succeed in whatever she puts her mind to.
