I do help undergraduate students from time to time with their Engineering mathematics, Analytical techniques (Maths) and Structures and materials for engineering students at University during term and out of term time. I also have students studying Open University sought help with their Essential Mathematics 1 MST124 and MST125 & T207 Engineering Mechanics materials and design
I first asses the student on his/her ability on Maths and discuss what he/she wants to achieve and set some achievable goals and follow a structure to improve Maths skills and perform well not only in the class room but also in the examinations. I do not have a magic wand to perform miracles. I work with the student to improve their grades by explaining the concept/ theory in a clear logical manner and motivate and encourage the student to perform well in maths. I encourage and motivate students by providing plenty of exam board specific resources. My students aiming for A* / A grades are expected to do some homework between lessons. There is no substitute for practicing maths questions and solving maths problems. There were occasions where students came with a specific request to perform well in the exam; I have helped them to improve their grades at the exam through rigorous revision techniques going through past exam questions.

I have no hesitation in recommending him for any other student
She was able then to take this forward to the after school sessions that were provided at her college.
Thanks for leaving me feedback on the first tutor website. Much appreciated. It has been a pleasure helping your daughter with her OCR MEI A Level Maths. She is cleaver and picked up maths concepts and techniques quickly
I would certainly recommed Mr Kumar …
Congratulations and I am looking forward to help you progress in the new A Level
Thanks to the tutor
Thanks ever so much for leaving such a wonderful feedback. It is satisfying for a tutor to learn how a student feels about the tutoring that I provide. I will provide Mathew with all necessary tools and techniques to perform well in the GCSE exam as well motivation and encouragement to like maths. As he works through all the exam board focused materials that I provided you will see the difference in his maths performance the grades.
Thanks again for your recommendation.
I feel a lot more confident at Maths and my improving grades at sixth form are proof of this. My tuition sessions with Kumar are definitely having an impact on this; and for this I must recommend him to anyone else looking for tuition. I've found that he is very considerate of the student and works to suit the students needs.I f you feel as though a tutor will benefit you whilst studying for your A/AS level maths, Kumar is definitely a tutor worth considering.
I look forward to continue studying and enjoy his help.
Thanks for taking time to leave me a feedback. It is my pleasure to help Seb with his maths. He has shown so much energy and enthusiasm in maths and has done the homework that I set between my lessons. I have no doubts that his grades will improve in maths and will secure a good university for his Civil Engineering degree.
Daughter has appreciated his first lesson a lot.
I extremely pleased with my choice of tutor for my daughters and have confidence that their knowledge and grades will improve.
Thanks for leaving me feedback. It is good to see university students like you are taking responsibility for your own learning. It is my pleasure to help you to progress at University. There is no substitute for practising mathematics. Keep up the good work,
It is good that you took wise decision to provide tutoring help for your son in his maths modules. It is nice to see he is motivated and showing keen interest in the subject. If he keeps on completing the homework every week, he is destined for success in his maths exams.
Thanks again from Kumar
Thanks very much for your feedback. It is my pleasure to teach your son AL maths. He is bright and has shown so much interest in the subject topics. He has completed the homework every week without any excuses. If he keeps up the current work ethics, he is destined for A* in AL maths.
It was apparent to me from the start that Kumar was very knowledgable in the maths subject area and he has a brilliant way of explaining mathematical concepts so that they are easier to grasp.
For me, it has been around 10 years since I have done a maths related subject so some of my base knowledge was missing. Kumar recognised this and helped me rebuild the knowledge needed to not only overcome the problems faced, but to understand them as well.
Each session I arranged with Kumar, I felt he was well prepared. He requested that before each lesson, I sent over the material I wanted to cover (mock papers/questions), I felt this was beneficial to us both and I felt I got the most out of my time.
I would not hesitate to recommend Kumar to anyone seeking help with their maths and would consider Kumar my first point of call for any future help I may need.
Thanks for your feedback. I do very much appreciate for taking time out to leave me practical and sound comments. It is my pleasure to help you with your University maths and it is good to know that my tuition made a difference.
Best wishes for bright future
Just a shame we live so far away or would have had more than one lesson
I would strongly recommend Kumar for anyone at any maths level.
