Chemistry is a kind of subject which can be very enjoyable or daunting depending on how you approach it . If you are doing this subject by choice then you will enjoy it doesn't matter how boring the topice you are studing or how hard it is.

Provides quality work to do, helps to improve on specific topic you’re stuck on, got a good grade, great at the physical chemistry as well, nice guy overall. :)


Saif taught me Chemistry for 2 year while I was in the IB diploma programme. I used to struggle grasping concepts I learnt in school, but the lessons I had with Saif really helped me! He always provided excellent resources where I could further solidify the things he taught me. His genuine interest and knowledge of Sciences aided me in achieving my goal when I took my exams.


Saif helped me when I was sitting for my GCSE and A levels. He is great at explaining concepts. He encourages asking questions and keeps trying different ways of explaining something until you understand. He tries to build your understanding by giving you a range of questions from different sources. He’s extremely friendly, relaxed and easy to communicate with.

Interview with Saif

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Saif — I started tutoring science when I was in year 8 just to pay my school fees. My very first student was my own classmate. I have always been a self-learner and interested in the deeper understanding of Science, especially in chemistry. It was here that my interest in tutoring was planted.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Saif — I specialise in chemistry. My favourite topics in chemistry are Quantum Chemistry, Chemical Kinetics, Thermodynamics and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. My least favourite topics are Industrial Chemistry and Group Chemistry.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Saif — Yes! My two role models are Dr Katherine Thompson from Birkbeck and my university tutor Arun Sir.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Saif — A good tutor has to be passionate about the subject, have a positive attitude, be able to create a link between a real life senerio and the subject they teach, and be able to explain the philosophy of the subject.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote or piece of advice related to your subject.
Saif — The best way to learn any subject is to teach it.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or are still facing in your subject?
Saif — Chemistry is a vast subject area with limitless applications in various applied sectors. So applying the subject knowledge exactly the way a student needs for their course is always challenging.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Saif — Yes. I am very much interested in Organic Synthesis. And in the future, I would like to improve on that.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof?
Saif — Because I always have an answer and an explanation for every question my student asks about my subject.
