About the lesson
I tailor my sessions covering exam board-specific learning content and tutoring approach according to my student's needs. I guide my students to use different revision strategies, boosting confidence and exam skills and regular tests. I encourage my students to ask questions to address any misunderstanding and focus and further practice on weaker areas to improve understanding and bridge any gaps in knowledge. As well as help my students develop transferable academic skills not covered in the school curriculum to succeed beyond school and college.
//------ Methodology for Urdu speaking and listening (Beginner-Advanced) ------//
The ultimate goal of learning any language is communication through written and verbal, and topics such as grammar and building vocabulary can help achieve this goal.
I personalised my sessions according to my students' Urdu speaking and listening ability. My sessions include Urdu phrases which are broken down into syllabus and then used to create simple to complex sentences, conversational language using modifiable patterns, grammar and vocabulary to increase exposure and develop my student's confidence and ability to speak Urdu.
I encourage my students to speak Urdu, practice conversational phrases aloud and regularly test my student using tailored quizzes including speaking and listening tests.
Note for student/parent: Free 1st session is for new students only.
Enhanced DBS certified. My students have exceeded their target grades and achieved grades 6 to 9. I was awarded the Institute of Biomedical Science President Prize for outstanding academic achievement. First Class BSc Biomedical Science and MSc Neuroscience graduate, King's College London.
Through my role as a Student Representative during my undergraduate, I collaborated with the administration to ensure that all students receive a high-quality learning experience. Following this, I completed MSc Neuroscience at King's College London, where I worked in a team delivering lecture recordings to the students and a teaching assistant role including delivering statistics and data analysis techniques workshop to my fellow peers, group of 10 - 15 (MSc Neuroscience).
I thoroughly enjoyed my both BSc and MSc research projects in Biomedical Science and Neuroscience. I found biological processes fascinating, especially the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms and their significance in health and disease. Tutoring offers me the opportunity to share my passion for science and skills developed throughout my studies. For example, strategies to understand complicated concepts and simplified and effective exam preparation techniques help other students thrive in and beyond their school exams.

//------ Testimonials ------//
“My daughter has been working with Ume, twice weekly for 6 weeks now. Ume was recommended to us by a friend, and we plan to continue employing Ume for the foreseeable future. She tutors my daughter in Physics and Biology.
My daughter is in year 10 and had considerable gaps in her scientific knowledge due to several years living overseas and large amounts of remote learning in her first year back in the UK system. She had lost all confidence and was disengaged with her lessons at school.
Ume took on board our situation and created lessons that were appropriate to my daughter’s specific needs. She set appropriate goals for the term, so my daughter could feel that she was working towards a meaningful target. Her lessons have clear objectives, are well planned, follow the appropriate GCSE curriculum and I receive regular feedback. She also sends follow up links after each session, to consolidate the learning done during the session.
My daughter was initially reluctant to engage with tutoring, but even she has recognised the value of the sessions and logs on for each session without complaining! She has rated Ume as a 5 star tutor.
We immediately noted a change in my daughter’s attitude towards her science lessons at school. She is far more confident and as she now understands what is being taught in school, she is far more engaged with her school work.
I would thoroughly recommend Ume to all parents. We feel so lucky to have found her.” Ms Daisy Harman, GCSE Physics and Biology Tuition
Perfect! Ume is teaching our daughter KS3 higher Biology,Chemistry and Physics. Ume regularly tests our daughter using exam style questions helping to develop exam skills,recap sessions and provides homework after class. Ume is very organised and updates us on our daughter's progress! We highly recommend Ume!
Perfect! Ume is an excellent tutor. My daughter does not particularly enjoy studying. However, she does enjoy the lessons with Ume. She is very prepared, thorough and has a high attention to detail which is essential to ensure understanding. I am confident that grades will improve with Ume. She is building the confidence of my daughter in both gcse maths and physics.

Ume, has proven to be a very professional and flexible tutor. She regularly reminds parents of classes, organises feedback sessions and set's a learning plan which is shared with parents a week before each tutoring session. Ume has also made changes to scheduled classes on short-notice which has been very much appreciated as it has enabled our eldest daughter to be flexible with her demands for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. Ume currently teaches two of our three daughters and both of them have expressed great elation in having been introduced to their favourite tutor ever (they have had a few).
Ume is preparing my home-schooling daughter for Chemistry, Biology and Physics GCSE exams. Ume is a very organised, consistent, patient tutor. She builds good relationships with my daughter, she encourages her to be an active listener and ask questions, explains different ways if my daughter can't understand, gives her tests and quizzes. Ume organises meetings with parents to give them updates on my child's progress. Me and my daughter recommend Ume as a tutor to anyone who needs to pass GCSE Science successfully.
Ume is an excellent tutor. She is friendly, intuitive and helpful, and her teaching style is clear and methodical. Her lessons are interactive and engaging. She provides lots of examples throughout the lesson and helped me to work through them which I found very helpful. If I don’t understand something she provides clear explanations making it easy to understand the most complex concepts. I am extremely pleased with her tuition, so I would 100% recommend her. Thank you, Ume
Ume is a phenomenal tutor and she works hard to prepare well-organised and engaging teaching lessons. She is kind and approachable. Her teaching style is encouraging, and she does best to teach every lesson and uses lots of examples and practice questions to assess my strengths and weaknesses to ensure that she provides personalised learning content in every lesson. I felt more confident now than I was during my first lesson. I am really enjoying my tutoring lessons. I would strongly recommend Ume as a tutor.

Ume promptly responds to my requests for scheduling tutoring sessions and thoroughly prepare all the teaching lessons. I feel very lucky to have found Ume at the right time. She is exceptionally organised, reliable and explains complicated topics clearly and in-depth to ensure that I understood each topic. She is patient, so I feel supported and encouraged throughout the lesson because of her personalised tutoring approach. I am extremely happy and enjoyed all of my seven lessons with her. I felt more confident after each lesson and I look forward to continuing my tutoring sessions with her. I have already recommended her to my friends and family! I would highly recommend Ume's excellent teaching ability and skills to anyone. Thank you so much, Ume!!
