« I found Manav when I was scrolling through superprof looking for a GCSE Biology tutor for my son, Andre. After the free lesson, me and Andre both felt confident in Manav's abilities. We also found his reassuring and Andre said that he felt comfortable around him, which was important for me because Andre suffers with severe anxiety, so having someone, like Manav, that is gentle, patient and understanding was vital. Manav's methodology has helped Andre to simplify his approach to his GCSEs as well as see his progress in a definitive manner. Manav has also been very helpful in the transition between GCSEs and A Levels, making the move to A Levels fun and engaging rather than terrifying. He has been a help to Andre over the previous summer holidays to refresh his memory and keep his brain active and ready for A Levels. »

Gap year student teaching Biology up to and including A Level standard

Methodology

I give one-to-one tutoring and small group tutoring (currently both online & physical)

Education is dependent on learning, so ensuring that you are keen to learn your subjects is one of my key goals - without this, attempting to get 9s at GCSE or A*s at A Level can be tiresome.





I tutor in three main steps:

1. Content-based learning - at this stage, the topic is taught through a series of simplistic diagrams, hand-written notes, slides and discussions with you - the last medium being the most important as it allows you to engage with you topic, hence you are more likely to remember the content!

2. Exam-based learning - at this stage, we do two things: a) look at the topic we have just learnt through with a focus on the exams, and b) practise, practise, practise!

Each exam question attempted is either a 'Mechanics' or 'Purpose' question. A 'Mechanics' exam question is one that focuses on recall of knowledge, and a 'Purpose' exam question is one that focuses on applying this knowledge to foreign/known contexts - being accurate in your responses to both types of questions is vital to acing your exams!

At this stage, we will also reflect on each question, taking advantage of a simplistic method of reviewing your response to exam questions to better your exam technique


3. Reflection & Conclusion - at this stage, we will discuss your thoughts on the topic, any final questions you may have and rate your confidence in the topic along a scale

I record your confidence in each topic and how well you did in each exam question attempted: this way, you can see your progress in a subject without having to track it yourself! (Other information is also recorded, which is also available upon request)

Experience

Since receiving tutoring from Manav, I have seen my children become more confident in their abilities to excel in science & maths GCSEs. Manav has been an excellent source of intellect, encouragement, constructive criticism and guidance. Though he has just finished his A Levels, he is very sure of capabilities, which is evidenced by his firm knowledge and ability to answer most questions. Manav has been honest when conversing with both me and my children, which has helped me keep track of my children's progress - I could not recommend someone better!

Manav is excellent at explaining complex topics in a simplistic manner which make them easy to understand. He always tailors his teaching style to the student to ensure they get the best educational support they can from him.

Very easy to talk to and encourages his students to ask questions if they don't understand and readily will walk you through your problem until you understand it. Explains things thoroughly and in the easiest way possible. Instead of just telling you how to solve a problem, he will tell you why you are doing what you're doing so you can easily apply the knowledge in the future. Very kind and supportive of all of his students. I would most definitely trust him to get me the top grade!

Manav is an excellent teacher and explains the most complex topics in a simplistic manner that allows for quick and easy understanding. He always tailors his teaching style to his students to ensure they can learn the best they can from him.

He has been very reliable and punctual with his timings and has always ensured that I understand what I'm learning. Manavs resources are extremely useful (even if they arent his own). I would completely recommend him for anyone doing their GCSEs or in the lead up to GCSEs. He is also very good at academic skills like revision timetables + time management.

Sarah

I was one of Manav's previous students from two years below and he has really helped me with my GCSE Biology & Maths as well as some Chemistry. His teaching is clear and he uses different methods of teaching depending on the my confidence in the topic.
