About me:

An outstanding Grammar High school Maths teacher, I teach Maths up to A -level (New Curriculum), GCSE (New 9-1) Maths, IB, IGCSE and Maths entrance exams.

An outstanding Grammar High school Maths teacher, teaching A-Levels and beyond for over 12+ years now. Taking bookings for Summer 2019 exams and teaching the Brand new GCSE (9-1) and the New A Level Curriculum. Call now for a head start.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Maths and Statistics, 11+, 13+ Grammar School Maths Entrance, GCSE (New 9-1 specifications), IGCSE, International Baccalaureate and A-Levels (New syllabus Sept 2017)

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a B.Sc. (Mathematics 2:1) and I am a qualified teacher with a (QTS Qualified Teacher Status).

- How much do you charge?

My charges are between £35-65 per hour depending on the time of the year you require my services. I believe this to be excellent value for money. I guarantee your child will get their school's predicted grade (at least if not more). If you are aiming higher (which I presume you would be) then I can customize the tutoring program according to your child's needs. I will discuss this at the very beginning of the lesson and I keep you informed of their progress every half term at the least.

Tutoring is a customized service run per student. No two students are the same. Hence the amount of lesson planning and resource preparation for every student is different and my charges will vary accordingly. Please understand that I am not here to sell Homework books or revision guides or practice CDs/DVDs. I carefully plan lessons and prepare answers to questions which students have failed to get into their school environment or from their teacher.

My lessons are not a reactive response to student's queries. It is a well-planned and directed approach to achieve particular success criteria and the end of each and every hour. I would suggest that booking an early spot in the year at the beginning of September would guarantee a decent price tag as I intend to reward the commitments taken by parents.

The weekend charges are expensive in general and as fair and generous I would like to be I am tied up on negotiating prices for Weekend slots. I aim to provide quality tutoring services by honouring the commitment shown by my regular students and their parents.

I do not travel to students home. All the tutoring takes place at my residence in a pet free, quiet and peaceful learning environment. At home, I also have a wealth of resources to offer students who commit to tutoring in this fashion.

However, if there are any specific circumstances you want to discuss please call me and I will be happy to answer your queries.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home in one to one, pair and small groups of no more than 5 at times of exams. I also teach on-line one to one and in groups.

New Special introduction: I offer two hours of intense maths tutoring for GCSE and A Levels in a group setting. Prices for GCSE and A-levels vary.
Please consult me for the pricing. The group session is a maximum of 4 students together. They are grouped according to years and their level of ability as given by the school grades.

Tuition in a Pair. I pair up students of the same year group and give them more tutor time. The lessons are made longer by 15-30 minutes and this extra time is utilized to increase the student's interaction time with me. This is very cost effective also as students gain more tutor time and this is more value for your time and money.

- When are you available?

I am free evenings, weekdays and weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I can teach any age. Preferred 11+, 13+, GCSE, IB and A Levels.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, IGCSE, A-Levels, Further Maths, Statistics, International Baccalaureate, 11+ and 13+ Entrance exams, University Maths.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I use an interactive whiteboard along with Skype for crystal clear Audio. Students will need a headset and a microphone to be able to communicate effectively.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I suggest students/parents try out the first lesson and have a feel for how I tutor and see the difference for themselves. I operate a 100% money back guarantee, meaning that if you are unhappy with the quality of any of my particular lessons on an ongoing basis including my first trial lesson then I will refund you the money in full (no questions, no quibbles). PS. The money back guarantee is inapplicable if it's a one-off lesson or last-minute exam preparation lesson.


Thank You.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Apart from being a grammar school teacher, I have through experience in the assessment of Maths curriculum. Having marked enormous amounts of material I thoroughly understand what an examiner would be looking for when they are marking a maths paper.

I teach my students the exact methods, which will help them, score high marks (by eliminating all those silly mistakes, which you probably want to tell me about!). There is a set method, which I teach my students, which help them, get rid of this habit of making silly mistakes. I teach them the skill to analyse a maths problem at a glance and they can determine how much time and effort they need to spend on a particular problem the moment they see the question. This is vital for exam success.

Do I use intelligent questioning to fine-tune their understanding but I also ensure they can apply their knowledge to real-life questions and solve any problem they might come across? I teach them the core skills needed to solve a problem and then they are presented with a set of increasingly difficult problems to try on their own. This has helped all my students keep their engagement in the lessons and explore their skill set further even if it means making mistakes. I preach, "Correcting the mistakes you have already made in the exams is the fastest way to learn".

So far I have tutored over 150 students on a 1-1 basis in the past 10 years alone. This is over 6000 hours of tutoring (40 weeks for each student a year X 150 students = 6000 hours)!

Moreover, at school, I am required to deliver outstanding lessons in accordance with the OFSTED Framework. Hence I have an accurate and in-depth knowledge of the most recent syllabus changes and the exam boards. That combined with my daily touch of solid Maths puts myself in a very strong position to very quickly and thoroughly assess the educational needs of a student and then build upon their strengths. My lessons are Laser sharp and objective oriented wherein I intend to achieve a very concrete goal at the end of each of my tutoring sessions.

• Teaching Pedagogy: The vast majority of One-2-One tutors simply 'turn-up-and-teach' without adequate preparation. Maths is mostly about 'understanding', and less about 'throw up facts'. A tutor gets ONE CHANCE to impart 'understanding' in a clear and coherent way. Not having prepared and risking an incomplete, confused or incoherent explanation instils confusion in the student, rather than confidence.

• Regular feedback and homework: Most tutors either set no homework at all or thoughtlessly set exercises from a textbook containing inappropriate questions. My homework is specifically written to complement the lesson, containing some questions designed for routine practice and some questions designed to challenge the student; encouraging them to 'think' and to develop their logical capacity.

• Exam Practice: I give students plenty of past paper practice – but only at the right time, once they have a deep understanding of all of the individual topics within the syllabus. Far too many tutors use exam papers to 'teach' from, which means they are setting papers when the student isn't ready: The upshot of that is the student's scores fluctuate wildly and their confidence is destroyed.
The lessons are invigorating, inspirational and cutting edge as I keep a very thorough hold on my subject.

With this immense experience, I have developed an approach which is very simple. I make the lessons fun and engaging. I try to promote interest in the subject so learning Maths becomes fun and an ongoing natural process. Students take this into the school environment and start seeing the results immediately. This reduces the burden from Maths and hence my students can focus on other subjects and achieve well holistically. (It's not about getting an A* just in Maths. I know that!!)

I am very confident that my charges are excellent value for money due to the fact that I have delivered outstanding results for my students. Please do not take my word for it. I have many satisfied parents who you can contact before contracting my services. My past students and their parents have often said that they cannot thank me enough for how much I have changed their career possibilities with those A/A* grades in Maths.

In short, I am the Maths A* Specialist.

Please get in touch NOW to book your place for September 2017-18. Get started with Brand New syllabus and the Latest teaching methods from the Expert. Call now.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes. (Of course) I strictly follow the Child Safety and Data Protection Policy. Details you share with me are treated with utmost confidentiality and never shared with anyone.

Yes. I am registered with NCTL as a qualified teacher. This can be verified at the following Link: (concealed information)

Both my son and daughter were tutored by Kamal Patel. I must say that we have found Kamal's tutoring techniques very unique and customised. He is always calm and goes the extra mile to help his students.
My daughter is an Optometrist now and my son has a First degree in Mathematics.

I am a home tutored student and Kamal has prepared me to get the following grades in my As Maths.

C1 - A*, C2 - A, S1 - B.

I am continuing homeschooling with Kamal and me and my parents are confident to get an overall A in maths if not an A*. I like the approach kamal has and with his flexible times and regular commitments I am also able to pursue other subjects with great ease.

I have completed my maths C1 and C2 and have scored A with Kamal's help.
I am continuing to do A2 Maths with him and am predicted an A grade.

I taught a student who has now gone on to study Maths at university. I only taught him for his A2 and still managed to pull in a B overall.
His parents are happy for him and I am teaching his sister for A2 maths.

K
Kamal

I taught A B since his As Maths and developed his interest in Maths. He is now studying further maths at A Levels after completing his As and A2.
Maths tutoring has completely changed his interest in the subject and his parents are very happy.

Mrs Patel, Sudbury, London.

I found Mr Patel for tuition for GCSE Maths. My daughter was predicted a C grade. However with just 5 tutoring sessions she felt confident enough and to our surprise her grade was B. My only regret is that we did not find him earlier otherwise my daughter would have continued with Maths in A Levels.

In all a highly recommended tutor.

A

I had a B grade in Maths and was very reluctant to take Maths but my dad insisted. I started tutoring with Kamal and by the End of June 2011, I have completed the following modules of A Levels with A grades. Thanks to kamal to change my life completely. I now like Maths and it's my favourite subject.

C1, C2, C3, S1, S2 ----All A Grades.

Both GCSE and A-Level Results are verifiable.
