About the lesson
Teach understanding, not facts. This allows you to be flexible, and consistently answer the tricky questions.
I believe transparency, a clear personalised roadmap for improvement, and close-support with both tutees and parents, paired with years of tutoring experience is the optimal approach to drive results from your learning.

I'm an enthusiastic Physics PhD student at Imperial College London (having done my Masters and Bachelors in Physics at Imperial), with a passion for teaching and showing that physics is good fun. I’m here to empower you to drive the results YOU want, and build a strong foundation of conceptual understanding. I teach Physics for IB, University and A-Level, and Maths for IB and A-level.
Having scored in the top 1% of 142,000 students globally in the IB, and successfully demonstrated my high level of Maths and Physics understanding, by working at Goldman Sachs - I can help you build your core intuition on not just solving problems, but fundamentally understanding the subject so your knowledge can be applied in any context.
Perfect! Ayush is an amazing and exceptional tutor. He has really helped my daughter after missing so many maths lessons this year. She is now much more confident and understands the concepts she missed. Ayush explains concepts very well and goes through problems with her. He is an organised and compassionate teacher and I can highly recommend him.
Perfect! Get's things done - that's the key. All tutors say they bring results but Ayush genuinely commits to short and long-term improvement with the student. He keeps both the student and all relevant parties updated with transparent updates, and a roadmap to improvement. You'd be lucky to have him as a tutor :)
Perfect! Nathaniel and I had our expectations exceeded with Ayush. By far the best tutor we have had over the years. He is highly organised, personable, transparent and dedicated to showing real results over our sessions.
Perfect! Super! Would recommend to everyone looking to make tangible improvements in their work
Perfect! I am sooo glad I him to tutor me for my physics finals. Even with COVID effectively cancelling them, I finally feel like I properly understand what my teacher failed to teach me over the 2 years. I wish I could do the whole course over again with Ayush tutoring me. His fee is a little pricey but the difference really shows in the quality of his lessons and even outside of lessons.
Perfect! Super helpful :) Ayush will always go the extra mile in each aspect of his tutoring: organisation, presentation and delivery, connection with the student. I think that's what makes the difference and it really makes me look forward to our sessions. He's got a great sense of humour too and can relate things to the real world, which makes my physics seem much more practical
Perfect! Ayush is on point! He knows how to teach difficult concepts in a way that I can actually understand. And then he goes one step further and really tests me on all aspects to make sure I have understood the concept through and through. 10/10
Perfect! Ayush is an amazing tutor. He is very friendly, focused and professional. He went above and beyond to fully understand my academic needs and help me. He was also accessible when I had any questions. I am very happy with my results and would definitely ask for his help in the future.
- Ayush's response : Setareh and I are still currently working on the data project, but she is very transparent, clear with the tasks that need to get done, and is supportive with relevant materials necessary to get the job done. She sets up an environment conducive to progress and assistance in this field, which is the best a tutor can ask for.
Perfect! Ayush has changed my view of maths and physics being my worst subject to now something I want to study in University. I would love to study physics at Imperial now too! He is an amazing tutor :D
- Ayush's response : Ankie is ambitious and even though she already performs to a very high level, she is very open to receiving feedback and constantly strives to improve. This mindset is going to take you far Ankie :)
Perfect! Worth the premium rate. I'm confident that my son is making progress at a rate no other tutor has set in Sam, and the confidence and trust alone is worth every penny. Ayush is friendly, professional and intelligent.
- Ayush's response : John's son is bright, and knows what he wants and most importantly - listens. He'll do great in the exams to come, and has the interest in the subject as well to make it truly FUN!
Perfect! Brilliant brilliant brilliant!! I've been tutoring with Ayush for a while now and he's always been consistent in keeping me on my toes - always challenging me and ensuring that I'm at the best of my game. And I think that's what differentiates a good tutor from an excellent one.
- Ayush's response : Alia's strength is her ability to identify her own strengths and areas of improvement - she's great fun and cooperative, and allows the session to be more of a discussion than a one-sided lecture. Pleasure tutoring you Alia :)
Perfect! Ayush is a star! When we had our lessons for A-level mock exams he quickly designed lesson plans suited to my level of conceptual or practice understanding. What does this mean? It means he doesn't copy paste and really does extra to make me properly learn, not just clock in his hours.
- Ayush's response : Roberto showed an enthusiasm to learn, and the commitment / dedication to do the necessary practice to make solid progress! Well done :)
Perfect! Ayush is a supertutor indeed!! Super professional, delivers results to a high standard and is very efficient and organised. I got more service than I asked for, and is more than I have received from any tutor I have had in the past
- Ayush's response : Yu was punctual, enthusiastic and keen. She shows self awareness in her performance and is a pleasure to tutor :)
Perfect! Excellent tutor! Worth the rate: Ayush was very transparent and flexible with lesson design and went the extra mile, he challenged me to UNDERSTAND the physics of what was actually going on. As a result, I could answer really difficult questions and scored 7/7 in my physics mid-term exam. I recommend him to everyone :)
- Ayush's response : A very attentive student, open to taking a step back and consolidating his foundational understanding, and then building back to tackle the most challenging questions

Ayush saved me from falling behind during lockdown. In fact, we actually caught up and overtook the class lessons. Now I can come back to class super confident on the concepts and can focus on more challenging questions.
I love Ayush's enthusiasm: he doesn't just sit back and make you do questions, he actively engages with me and asks me to think about problems in a way no other teacher would make me. He gives me the tools to be independent and that's the way a teacher should be
Ayush plans his lessons in a fun way which really makes me think about what's going on in physics questions. I learn better this way and he changes his approach to the way I learn. He's flexible and communicates his ideas very well :)
I cannot recommend Ayush enough to other students and parents. Even at university level physics Ayush is clear-headed and can explain concepts with simplicity and clarity. 10/10
Super fun lessons and I learn a lot every time!
I reached out to Ayush a few months back on another platform and he was professional from the very start. He's very sharp and knows how to quickly get a sense of my areas to improve, and then get straight to work.
Results results results! Ayush raised my daughter's grade from 4/7 to 7/7 over 3 months in a way her teacher never could have. He's patient, got a great sense of humour and efficient.
Our class was brilliant!! He very clearly outlined our goals and the steps we were going to take to achieve them. He responds very fast to any questions I have and is very supportive!
Ayush is very reliable and goes the extra mile to deliver results. Worth his rate for sure.
Can't think of a better tutor for my son - Ayush is friendly and can communicate ideas very clearly in a way we can understand. He also keeps the parents very updated on class progress.
Very thorough, clear, and pushes me to be be the best student I can be
Ayush really helped me with IB physics waves. He made me understand the underlying concepts so now I feel like I can handle very complex problems. If you need a tutor Ayush is 5/5 for sure!!!
Probably the best tutor I've ever had. I've swapped between tutors several times before finding Ayush - he takes the time to understand my goals, where my weaknesses are and he makes a SPECIFIC lesson plan tailored to my style. Most of all - his lessons are FUN and I look forward to them every week
Ayush makes maths and physics super interesting! He teaches the deeper meaning of what concepts mean (like linking waves to gravity and the universe) and not just for academic reasons. But he's also rigorous in practicing questions, with contant support throughout the week whenever I need it. I can send him questions any time and he'll get back to me quickly. 10/10!!
In depth knowledge, super friendly, and he knows his stuff. Ayush has helped me a LOT along the way, and his fees are worth the service no doubt. I've had Ayush has a tutor for a year now and even though IB exams aren't going ahead this year, my test grades have all increased from 4s to high sixes --> aiming for a 7/7!
Amazing job!! With IB HL physics I've easily understood difficult concepts like interference patterns and electromagnetism. THen I also scored solid results on my mock exams. Ayush is an excellent tutor and responds quickly to any inquiries, I highly recommend him!
Friendly and very helpful:
I've been very happy with the service provided by Ayush over the past few months. Both during and outside of my tuition with him, he is happy to answer any and all questions I have about a specific physics topic from class. He works hard to make sure I understand everything, and does a great job in ironing out any gaps in my understanding of the topics. I began lost and confused in my school physics class but have since been able to catch up, and now feel confident and comfortable about my understanding. He’s very friendly and knowledgeable in physics, and I can highly recommend him to anyone struggling in class.
Improved my IB IA grade: Honestly, I couldn't have asked for a better tutor. At first, I was struggling to write my IA and I was panicking because I tried 2 tutors before Ayush and honestly, none of them helped. However, working with Ayush helped my IA be exceptionally better. He helps you understand the topic better and brings in new ideas to help obtain higher points in the IA. As well, he is super dedicated with his work and responds really fast to texts no matter the time of day. Honestly, would reccomend him to anyone who is struggling with their IA or any topic in physics.
I was conceptually weak in logarithms, integration and statistics. Instead of simply doing several questions, he first asked me to explain to him what I thought each concept was, and he strengthened my core understanding in each topic. Then we applied this new logic to questions, and not only did I grasp what the questions were asking, but my confidence in the subject as a whole rose. I want to go study applied math at university as a result!
A Superstar of a Tutor!!!
Ayush’s initial contact was not about the money, he wanted to understand if he could help with specific struggles and ensure that he would be a fit with our son, this made him stand out from the crowd!! From the outset he was relatable, approachable and professional and has continued to be extremely reliable. He has built a fantastic rapport with our son, improved his confidence and enthusiasm for learning massively. I cannot fault his subject knowledge or specific exam board considerations, he has a fantastic manner about him when teaching and really works hard to understand how he can help. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and will always be grateful to him for his efforts!
Ayush knows how to connect with a student and get personalized results - I was underperforming in almost every aspect of physics - speed, thoroughness and how to simplify a situation into a mathematical and logical problem. I had no idea what my problem was and neither did my physics teacher. Ayush managed to quickly identify what my weak points were, create a personalized action plan and had me consistently strengthening my performance until I achieved the maximum grade.

Find out more about Ayush
1) When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Physics and maths have always been deeply interesting to me - it's almost philosophical in nature really. It's about literally EVERYTHING around you, and yet we give it so little attention,
and somehow it has the stereotype of being dry and boring. This is an issue in the way it's taught so I really took to tutoring to convey my enthusiasm for the field, back in the IB - tutoring younger students and even those in my year.
I continued tutoring throughout university and now during my PhD as well.
2) Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Physics at IB, University and A-level, and Maths at A-level. I love to discuss how all the topics are linked. Physics is one subject after all, and if I can bridge concepts together in a way that teach students to think about the underlying mechanics in a question, I have succeeded. This flexibility gives students the tools and independence to tackle new unfamiliar questions with speed and consistency. I love quantum physics and nuclear physics in particular.
3) Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Yes! I can't give enough credit to Stephen Hawking for inspiring me to pursue physics, and that being curious is truly what it's all about. I'd also love to thank Salman Khan from Khan Academy for giving me the tools to learn subjects outside of my syllabus and grow my interest in nature and how to apply mathematics to it.
4) What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Results driven, clarity and empathy! A student and tutor need to click, and I need to understand how a student learns and approaches questions. I can then be very clear with the approach we're going to take, to the parents and the students and then we actually get down to business and practice practice practice! All my students have demonstrated great results in their efforts in the form of improved grades and interest in the field.
5) Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
I actually got to meet Stephen Hawking at University. I arranged for him to come give a talk to the university on his research on Black Holes. This was the year before he passed away, sadly, but I will never forget what it was like to see my childhood hero in person. He single handedly motivated me through middle and high school through his books "The Universe in a Nutshell", and to this day I cherish his contributions.
6) What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
I thought it was really challenging to wrap my head conceptually around quantum physics. It's so bizarre after all - a completely unintuitive mechanism of the universe. How could a human brain possibly wrap itself around that? So I made sure I studied extra hard, watching relevant Youtube videos, understanding analogies to the point where now I consider it my strongest subject.
7) Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
I have a passion to spread the reaction of wonder, imagination and sheer awe I have to the world and universe around us. So many people live life letting assuming the existence and origins of the world is seemingly 'normal', without truly stopping to think about what it all means. I think pairing my lessons with insights and a sense of appreciation for what we're actually learning goes a long way.
8) What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?
Truly it's the extra mile I go for my students. I don't just teach people how to answer questions. I teach people how to understand how questions are constructed, how to appreciate the subject and give them the tools to be independent. I understand that to be a truly successful tutor, eventually you need the students to be independent and self-sustaining - and I empower them to do so.
