Tutoring Approach:

►► TUTORING APPROACH ◄◄

1) The underlying fаctоr fоr my success lies in my ability tо chаnge my teаching style аccоrding tо eаch student's requirements

►► STUDENT FEEDBACK ◄◄

"Umer provided coaching lessons to my son, Toby, for his Further Maths and Maths modules. He quickly understood the student's needs and developed a plan to deliver. Highly recommended." - ABH (Ex-COO, BP), A2 Further Mathematics, Sutton Grammar

"He has provided unwavering support throughout my undergraduate and postgraduate business management degrees. His targeted support and the rich experience he brings in more than justifies his premium rates." - B Al Safar (Conglomerate in Middle East), Business Management, BSc / MSc Business Management, Brunel University

"Umer often uses visual aids to explain abstract concepts. He takes time to understand the interests of his tutees and then uses something of their interest to explain complex phenomenon to them. This really keeps the child motivated and involved. Hats off to his teaching style!" - R Hancock, AS Physics, Tiffins' Girls

"More often that not, students spend a considerable time studying unimportant things. Umer has the ability to channel the effort of his students in the right direction, resulting in effective exam preparation. If it wasn't for him, my son wouldn't have scored so well in his exams." - C Carlos (father), A2 Physics, Hampton School

"Umer has tutored me from year 8 through to A level. He is knowledgeable, reliable, patient and always polite. He constantly maintains a positive approach and encourages me even when I perform badly. He also helps me organise my study schedule and has remained a great source of motivation for me. I would blindly recommend him to anyone!". - B Basa, Mathematics (grade 8, GCSE, AS, A2), The Heathland School
