Tutoring Approach

The most important aspect of my tutoring is mastering exam technique. Students go through questions from the past year exam papers at the end of each teaching session. In addition, mind maps are provided for each topic which helps students prepare for the exam right from the beginning.

Availability: Weekday evenings from 8-9pm and Saturday from 4 to 5pm. Teaching is conducted in and around Croydon at student house or online using ZOOM.
