My Testimonials(I tutor students from different sites so some of the following references are given by students on other sites) -

Amazing tutor for maths
At the beginning of the year i was struggling with maths and I was unable to meet my target grade, which made me resent maths. However, after I met Poonam I soon started to love maths. Her teaching methods are amazing. She explains every step in detail and if you're still confused about a certain topic she will repeat it a 1000x until you fully understand it and are confident about it. Also, she'd constantly encourage me that I can do well and she pushed me out of my comfort zone and her support helped me significantly.
Subject: Maths
Outcome: I was predicted a B for GCSE maths but with Poonam's help I got an A*. Due to this I am now taking a level maths with her as my tutor. She's seriously the best tutor that I've ever had
-Tasnim Qudus

Mrs is an amazing teacher who works extremely hard and has vast knowledge of what she is teaching. Therefore without doubt she will be able to tutor her students to achieve the grades they want and get into whatever college or university they want.
Subject: Maths
Outcome: With her help I was able to achieve an A* in A level maths with 100% in the module c4 which undoubtly was the hardest module of maths.
-Bilegt Ochirbat

Ms has been teaching me Mathematics for the past year and in that time, thanks to her fantastic teaching, I have made phenomenal progress.
Her ability to explain and teach complex topics is second to none. This is demonstrated by the speed at which we were able to cover topics in depth: We were able to cover all six of my modules in only six months.
Furthermore, she is able to teach all modules equally well, from core mathematics to statistics to mechanics.
All in all, I would highly recommend Ms to anyone needing a Mathematics tutor.
Subject: Maths
Outcome: I have obtained an A in my Maths and Further Maths AS Levels, with UMS scores of over 90% in all but one of my modules as well as 74/75 in C2 and 74/75 in M1.

Excellent tutor for Admissions Entrance
Poonam is an excellent tutor, reliable, highly competent and willing to go an extra mile for her tutees.She spent the first lesson to know more about my daughter and to find her weaknesses. She prepared my daughter to a higly reputed academic school's 13+ entrance and I must say in such a short span of time she did a fantastic job. My daughter not only made it but also got highest marks in two subjects. Poonam is extremely hardworking and focussed. She is also very knowledgeable about entrance examination requirements and preparation. My daughter found her lessons very interesting and knowledgeable. She was also quick to respond to my texts and always punctual and flexible if changes were requested. I am very pleased that my daughter got into her desired school and I have no hesitation in recommending Poonam as a tutor. Thank you Poonam for all your effort! I am glad we found you!
Outcome: My daughter cleared Entrance and got into a highly academic school of high repute in UK

Mrs Poonam is the best we`ve had. Very organized, mythological, and knows how well to get the student to perform at the best level. There has been a remarkable improvement in my daughter’s performance and she feels more confident about her impending exams.
Mrs P. She sends my daughter exercises to do, every now and then, and communicates, etc. whenever necessary – all with the aim to encourage her to get the best results. I can’t thank her enough for this
- Mr Tony

Poonam is tutoring my son for A`level maths. I have found her to be an excellent tutor who identifies and understands my sons weakness in the subject and tailors the sessions around his requirements. My son is extremely happy with her methods, and finds her approach very professional and strategic and she patiently addresses difficult areas. He has definitely improved tremendously and her sessions have been well worth the time and money spent. She is very punctual with timing and is always accommodating with the student`s needs. I would highly recommend her as a Maths tutor in her capacity.
-Ms Shilpa

Poonam and my son met just under 3 months before his final A2 exam. From the get go her lessons were fast, organised and personally tailored. Poonam's broad knowledge of the subject saw my son tackling questions from different exam boards with varying difficulty which not only challenged him but also worked towards exam technique. Despite the short period, my son excelled noticeably but was such a shame that he met Poonam very late on. With Poonam's hard work, commitment and enthusiasm my son was able to secure a place at medical school and is very much looking forward to starting this September! I highly highly recommend Poonam - simply the best. Well done Poonam!
Subject: Maths Outcome: Accepted into medical school

Tutoring Approach:

I have been extensively tutoring students from different tutoring sites so most of my students are regular and my lessons are booked on regular basis.So before booking any lesson,kindly check my availability as some of the hours might not be available.I always ask student`s preference of day and time and then see if I can work on everyone`s preferred time.
I tutor face to face and also online.

I am based in central london 5 minutes from Queens Park,Kilburn,Brondesbury, Kilburn high road station and 10 minutes from Maida Vale Station.Kilburn high road and Salusbury road is right near my house so there are many direct buses to central London and other areas if you travel by public transport
