The teaching method includes the following:
1) A session to understand the depth of knowledge and understanding of the student.
2) A planned path until the exam.
3) Each session planned with regards to the syllabus.
4) Practice questions as homework.
5) Tests based on the topics taught (to be done at student's own time and checked by myself later) – free of cost.
I am an experienced tutor teaching Mathematics and Science in the UK for 10 years and have a total of 12 years of experience. I have graduated with a Masters in Aeronautical Engineering from Imperial College London. Currently, I am working as an Automatic Transmissions Engineer for Jaguar Land Rover.
I believe, anyone can improve in the relative field of study with the right teacher providing adequate level of support. I teach students one-to-one as well as in groups (maximum 5) depending on the requirements of the students and their parents. The approach to each case is thus different so that students get the most out of each session.
For any further questions please do not hesitate to ask questions – “Remember asking questions is the only way to improve learning!”
Rates vary based on the level of study and subject.
Rates vary between 25 - 35 per hour

Syed is a brilliant tutor. Having known him for quite some time I have only heard positive comments from parents and students as we both taught at a tuition centre in London. He is very attentive and a good listener to students' questions. Thus he explains difficult concepts very easily.
