Hi, I am Amram. I am extremely enthusiastic and passionate about teaching with a very patient attitude who believes that most difficult of things can be explained in the simplest of ways. I truly believe that everyone has got A*s in them which can be attained with little guidance and hard work. In addition, I am conscientious and enjoy the satisfaction of helping someone improve and achieve levels of attainment that they did not think they were capable of doing.
I started teaching seven years ago and gradually started getting a lot more students than I had anticipated mainly because of my methods and explaining the most difficult areas in the simplest ways. I use everyday examples to explain difficult topics and have taught students from a wide range of background for almost all examination boards including AQA, EDEXCEL, OCR, MEI, IB, JEB, CIE, WJEC, etc. As well as this I have also tutored students who are homeschooled.
I do past papers with students from the last 10-15 years and I make sure that my students know all the exam solving techniques thoroughly and have complete knowledge to master the subject.
I have taught more than 400 students all across UK majority (85-90%) achieving A grades
I do online sessions well.
I like to tailor my tuition depending on the student's individual needs as I understand and respect that each student is unique. The first step I take in my approach to tutoring new students is to understand and assess their strengths and weaknesses.
I use different styles and methods of teaching depending upon the student's ability and attitude. My main method is to first listen to the student's problems and help them to come to the correct solutions making sure that they understand and are involved in each and every step. I give my students the necessary confidence to ask me questions without any hesitation and often use everyday life experiences to explain subjects. I am inclined to use the reduction method. i.e. breaking down a large problem to small parts in order to make it understandable when I feel it is appropriate. This method is particularly effective when dealing with problems in maths and the sciences and I have seen remarkable results in students when using this approach.
I have learned through my tutoring experience, the main reasons why students achieve lower grades are lack of knowledge, lack of exam practice, lack of time management skills during actual exams and practice to recognize keywords/key sentences in exam questions. All of these factors lead to LOWER SELF CONFIDENCE. So I would put a lot of emphasis on the above factors in my tutoring practice to give the maximum opportunity to my students to attain an A grade because I am not willing to settle for less.
