## Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and understanding tutor and really enjoy supporting students to achieve their dream grades. Before delivering, I study the student’s knowledge level and use most effective ways of knowledge transferring to ensure my students' success. Sound understanding is guaranteed through continuous monitoring of students’ progress and understanding. In 2017 all of my students achieved A-A stars for A/L mathematics. Some recent feedback comments I received are as follows;

(ALL OF THE BELOW TESTIMONIALS ARE GENUINE AND CAN BE VERIFIED UPON REQUEST);

"I’d like to thank you once again for all the support that you gave me, I was able to achieve an A in Physics,an A in Furthermaths and an A* in Maths, neither of these achievements would have been possible without all the assistance and guidance which you gave me. "

- Eddie Tamale: Edexcel maths and AQA Physics

"I would like to extend my personal thanks and gratitude to you for tutoring both of my sons, both achieved A*’s in Mathematics and Physics."

- Ashley’s mom : AS/A2 MEI maths and AQA Physics (plus GCSE Maths)

"Dear Waruna master,

I would like to thank you for my daughter’s superb achievement in her A level maths and further maths 2A* and A in physics. You were so flexible as per my daughter’s needs and enjoyed every lesson. We were so lucky to have you as our tutor. You have the ability to support the students to do their best. Thank you and God bless you."

-Mrs Ravi: Edexcel Further maths, Edexcel maths, AQA Physics

"Many thanks for the support you gave Megan in the run up to the exams. She thoroughly enjoyed the sessions with you, which were at just the right level, supported her knowledge and built on what she had in order to give her the confidence & skills that she needed for her A Levels."

-Mrs Gwynn : Edexcel Further maths and Edexcel maths

"Mr Waruna, is one of the best teachers I have ever had, he was really helpful, and supportive during the lead up to exams. Especially,I couldn’t imagine self studying M3 without him, with his help I managed to get an A for it. He always went out of the way, to change my approach to physics, to a logical method using concepts I had learned previously. He has always genuinely wanted me to do well, something I cannot thank him enough for.Thank you for tutoring me sir…"

- Saavin: Edexcel A2 maths, Further maths and AQA Physics

"I must be grateful to you for the support that you have given to my son Anjana for his A2 exam. My son has achieved A* in Maths, A in Further Maths & A in Physics with less effort. Your tremendous support was highly appreciated by my son to achieve this result and to get selected to one of the top ranked Universities in the world."

- Anjana’s dad: Edexcel Maths, Edexcel Further maths, AQA Physics

"Just wanted to let you know that I recieved the results for my C2 re-sit today. And you'll be happy to hear that I got an A! 94 to be exact so my overall maths grade has also gone up from a B to an A, which I am extremely happy about. Thank you so much for all of your help as I do not think I would have been able to do this well without you. You are a great tutor and I wish you all the best for the furture."

- Saki : AS Edexcel mathematics

"I am writing to inform you of my results this summer. I have achieved an A grade in Physics resit. Thank you for all your help this year."

- Sini : AS Edexcel Physics

"We sincerely thank you Waruna master for teaching Maths(C1,C2,S1,C3,C4 & M1 (Edexcel) & AS AQA Physics for my daughter. your genuine support really helped and she got extremely good results in all the exams in one go. hope your continued support will do the same in her A2.we are grateful for your support and have recommended you to some of the children who wants to achieve excellent results in maths or physics. God bless all in your family."

**From Vinu ( /5):**

*(GCSE Maths)*My daughter struggled with electromagnetism(Edexcel-Physics) and some maths topics. She found tutor's approach very effective. Now she is confident on the topics which she struggled in the past. Excellent tutor for Physics and Maths. Highly recommended…

**Reply from Waruna:**Thanks for the feedback.

**From Randi ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Only had 3 sessions so far. My son says Waruna is the best teacher for maths he ever had. Glad to know that all of Waruna's students have obtained A stars for AL further maths last year. Waruna, I am very thankful to you for giving me the opportunity to speak to parents of your past students who managed to get A stars. They rated you very highly. I keep my fingers crossed for 2020 exams.

Mrs. Randi

**Reply from Waruna:**Many thanks for your feedback provided.

**From Colin ( /5):**

*(Casual Learner Physics)*The teacher needs to improve his hand writing as they were unreadable at the lesson.

**Reply from Waruna:**Hi Colin, Thanks for the feedback and the rating given! I will try my level best to improve on my hand writing :) Hope the lessons have benefited you to carry out your job more effectively. Good luck with everything. Take care.

**From Uzma ( /5):**

*(GCSE Physics)*Lessons need to be tailored to the OCR 21st Century syllabus and notes and homework questions should be related accordingly. This would allow my daughter to read through them before the lesson and a quick 5 minute revision session would be beneficial. At present the numerous graphs provided without text are meaningless to a 14year old. Thank you.

**Reply from Waruna:**Dear Uzma ,

After the first lesson you told me that your daughter thoroughly enjoyed my teaching style and you after the second lesson to my surprise, you posted a somewhat negative feedback ; but then emailed to the admin team this;

' I had explained how my daughter best learns and showed him what material would be most suited. After 2 lessons and speaking to Mr Waruna he agreed to change his style of teaching and the feedback posted was a reflection of that. I can honestly say that the tutor was kind, patient and knowledgeable in his manner of teaching and it was unfortunate how this misunderstanding was generated and apologized from the tutor for my error '.

I do not usually provide any lengthy notes at lessons ,but I concentrate on teaching the concepts right and reinforce the concepts by practicing exam questions. I believe that is the secret of my succes of producing A stars.However, I have agreed to give notes to your daughter after your 'request' , yet you have given me a negative feedback due to misunderstanding/miscommunication.

Thanks for the apology email you sent to me and to the admin team of First tutors! But, I have produced great results from my teaching approach and it was unfortunate that you wanted me to change my teaching approach.

One advice please, I personally believe your would succeed more and enjoy learning analytical subjects like maths/physics if you motivate her to 'understand the concepts' rather than by ticking the curriculum and repeating from the memory.

I wish your daughter all the very best… Best wishes

Waruna
