I am currently teaching at a well-reputed Grammar School in London. I have a passion for teaching and enjoy it at the same time. I started to tutor twenty five years back, when I was at university. The results and the feedback of the tutees made me realise that I have the potential to teach and so I chose teaching as my career.
I tutor for the following exam bodies: Edexcel, OCR, and AQA and I teach AS, A2, IGCSE and also IB. I also tutor university students, who take chemistry as a subject in various courses, such as pharmaceutical science, bio-medical science etc.
I live in Sutton close to the town centre and Sutton Common Rail Station.

Tutoring Experience

I have been teaching for well over twenty five years at private schools, colleges and grammar schools and most of my students got A-A*. I have translated my teaching skills into tutoring students and have tutored for over 25 years.
I have attended courses and workshops conducted by different examination bodies such as Edexcel, AQAand OCR, which have made me very confident in teaching different specifications. This has made me fully aware of the standard of learning requirements that each specification demands from students. I strive hard to achieve the best possible results, for all my students. Most of my students have also progressed to read degrees in well reputed universities eg: Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial etc. I believe this is a testimony to my dedication and commitment towards student’s well-being as a whole.

Tutoring Approach

Chemistry is a unique subjects, which most of the students find quite challenging. To do well in chemistry, the students should have strong basics.Therefore, by inculcating the strong basics I can make students understand challenging topics. No two students are the same, therefore, it is important to adapt different teaching strategies; I believe this is one of my strong teaching skills.
With my vast experience of teaching, I have been able to provide an effective leaning environment to the learners during lessons. I use various teaching strategies and activities to make lessons more engaging. The ability to differentiate between students is a key factor that enables to distinguish learners and plan lessons appropriately.

I also believe that making the students to practise and to check their learning is of paramount importance. I fulfill this by using; simple question and answering, tutorials, and discussing past paper questions. I have my own unique teaching resources for each exam board(OCR, Edexcel & AQA) that I have been using over long period of time that students find very useful.
