“Siddiq’s teaching style is enthusiastic and effective, and he is extremely encouraging. Often, Siddiq provides clear and concise analogies which help to explain complicated topics, as found in the Further Maths A-Level Course. He also ensures to test my understanding frequently. Siddiq's enthusiasm for mathematics is evident; I feel much more confident with Maths now and our sessions have encouraged me to pursue Mathematics further. Overall, Siddiq is a friendly, reliable and approachable tutor.” (Muhsin A.)
I tend to want students to reach solutions with as little help as possible. This will help them work out concepts in their head their own way; they will arrange the ideas internally most naturally. It is great to see their cogs turning and to gently tease them towards a solution.
I achieved four A* in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry at A-level and am reading Mathematics this year at the University of Oxford. I have just left Emanuel School, where I was an academic scholar and Head Boy.
(See CV below for more Experience!) I have excelled in the UKMT Maths Challenges, reaching the British Maths Olympiads 1 and 2, as well as reaching the UK final of the Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge. I have also led a Year 8 class of excelling pupils through UKMT Maths Challenge style questions, as volunteering for my DofE Gold Award.

Achievements and Previous Tutoring Experience
• Led a class of excelling Year 8 pupils, focusing on preparing them for their UKMT Junior Maths Challenge.
• Travelled to two schools in India with a team of Emanuel School students to teach English. Planned tailored lessons for classes ranging from 6 to 14 years of age.
• Was employed part-time by a visually impaired A-level English teacher, aiding with coursework marking and administration. Moved to remote working during the coronavirus lockdown.
• Achieved Gold in the UKMT Senior Mathematical Challenge in 2018 and 2019. Competed in the British Mathematical Olympiads rounds 1 and 2, placing me in the top 0.1% of the country.
• Participated in the Regional Final of the UKMT Senior Team Mathematical Challenge in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
• Competed in the UK final of the Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge in 2020.
• Completed the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.
I have good analytical and problem-solving abilities, which have been heightened by my time spent with mathematics and chess. These have also allowed me to successfully mentor secondary school pupils, up the age of 17.
I think creatively and can come up with new ideas, which aids in my poetry and filmmaking. At school, I won both the poetry and film competitions for three years running, with short films that include both poetry and abstract animations. I passed my Grade 7 Piano examination in 2019, play the guitar and song-write.
As a result of performing poetry and music in front of audiences, and by speaking in front of parents at school events, I have become an adept public speaker and am able to write exceptionally in English.
I am proficient with computers and technology, and able to use online platforms to teach, write and communicate effectively. Being a committed member of the Emanuel rowing squad and leading the Prefect team as Head Boy have taught me good communication skills – especially in a team – and dedication to a pursuit.
Would highly recommend Siddiq for Maths tutoring. Has a very proactive, well structured and strategic approach!
Siddiq has a great aptitude and passion for maths and enjoys inspiring others to share his enthusiasm for example by running a Year 8 maths extension club and giving presentations of his original research to fellow further maths A Level students.
I know Siddiq well. He has a calm nature and is very passionate about Mathematics so is very happy to impart his knowledge to others. He is a skilled Mathematician as proven by his involvement and success at numerous Mathematical challenges and awards at local and national levels.
