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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
I asked Poonam to prepare my daughter for late 11+ maths exam and to help my son to surpass certain problems in A-level maths .She did such a wonderful job in a very short period of time. She is committed, encouraging and very kind tutor.
both of them achieved their goals
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.
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!

Poonam is a very sincere tutor and knows 11+ entrance requirements very well. She is very knowledgeable,professional and inspirational.My daughter made continued progress since she started preparing for her 11+ with her.
We would highly recommend Poonam to anyone who wishes to get into top schools- it needs high level of preparation and Poonam is best at this.
Poonam has taught my son only for four months and within this short period she managed to prepare him to that extend that my son passed 11+exam test to top schools in London.
I have enormous respect for her, she is approachable, helpful and I know that whenever we need help she will be there for us.
I am not bothered by this comment but I sincerely urge that u should be truthful and stick to your words-I am an extremely busy teacher and I tried my best to fit u in for a lesson after your repeated **Web Address Removed**'s a shame that u wrote a negative comment before starting a lesson with me.
Wish u the best!
Ms Poonam teaching is exam oriented and puts in so much of confidence that you start aiming for the highest. She is highly experienced and knows how to bring out best in her students.
I am very lucky to find her at the right time is very happy to earn highest possible grades in GCSE Maths,Further Maths and Additional Maths. It's because of her now I will be doing Maths and Further Maths at A levels.
Thank you so much Miss for all your support and guidance!
Unfortunately,after your first lesson, I fell sick and was hospitalised the next week .I had communicated with you very clearly about this. Due to my ill health, I was unable to offer you any lesson that week and suggested you to wait until next week for me to recover. We don't expect a person to teach in sickness.
I have an excellent report with all my students and their parents.
All my students are regular and I am very flexible with them.
