Private Maths and Entrance Exams Tutor in Amersham

Mathematics specialist tutor (currently teaching in an 11-18 academy), Bsc Hons degree from a Russell Group University. I have over 20 years of tutoring experience with students across the age and ability spectrum. (DBS/CRB march 2017). I am a supportive and experienced mathematics tutor with excellent communication skills, familiar with the areas of mathematics generally found to be most complex and challenging, and able to communicate them in an understandable manner. Keen to help prepare for all levels from 11+ entrance exams, Maths GSCE New Syllabus 9-1, Maths A-Level (New Syllabus as well) , Further Maths and STEP/AEA MAT.

In the first year (June 2017 summer exams) of GCSE Maths Higher Tier 9-1 exams
All of my 7 tutees attained grades 7-9 (Majority 8 & 9) All attained 1 grade higher than school target grades.

-Clear explanations and building of rapport.
-Multiple ways of explaining
-Excellent at diagnosing and plugging gaps
-Student and Parent Satisfaction of paramount importance.

I have extensive tuition experience. Confidently say that I have tutored many students, over many years, and I am happy to provide testimonials of parents and students . (Further testimonials found in fb) .I am proud to say that my students reach their personal targets, all the way from A* grades (8 and 9 for the new GCSE), to entry into prestigious UK universities (including Oxford and Cambridge) and some have been so inspired they decided to take maths at degree level! I have also built up a vast amount of teaching resources for all levels and I cover every syllabus.

Whether its finding a creative method to boost the confidence of a Key Stage 2 child or preparing for A Level maths (or further), I can be of help. Every student is different and responds to different tuition styles. I have great interpersonal skills and therefore lots of success at getting the best out of my students.
I create an environment where the student is relaxed and confident and see my tuition as part of an overall support structure with a parent and school. As such I have constant dialogue with parents to ensure we are on track. I also set work to be completed outside of sessions to reinforce what we have covered.
As well as covering all theory, we would work on many examples and exam technique. I ensure competency and confidence before moving from one topic to the next.

Not only helping me reach my full potential, but also helping me realise my own interest in the subject.Above all else, his encouragement gave me the confidence to apply to Oxford and (with lots of his support) ultimately gain a place. Now in the fourth year of my degree, Mr Karim's work ethic stays with me and I am still grateful for all the extra time he devoted to teaching me ."

I started IGCSE in year 10 with him. He helped me understand topics by breaking them down simply. Pretty soon I was ahead in lessons and did very well
In tests and end of year exam.I have become a resilient learner and enjoy problem solving with my tutor's help. I am aiming A* in this exam. He expertly helps me tackle difficult topics as we work through past papers. I feel thoroughly confident with the syllabus. I would gladly refer to others." zaki
