Mahima - Oxford - Maths

Methodology

I am an Oxford graduate with >7 years experience. The first lesson is free. I have an MSc in Biology (Integrative-Biosciences) from the University of Oxford with more than 7 years of tutoring experience.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I tutor Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths from KS2 up to A-levels. I offer my first lesson for free only so that the student can try the new teaching technology and also gives me a chance to explain my teaching strategies and make a work plan for student to achieve A/A*.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have completed an MSc in Biology (Integrative-Biosciences) from the University of Oxford. Sciences and Maths were my major subjects in my degree.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £20-30 an hour depending on level. I offer discounts when blocks of lessons are made. Minimum block is of 5 lessons and with 5 lessons booking up front I offer 10% off.

- Where do you teach?

I use state of the art technology in my lessons. I tutor online in a virtual classroom which is far more interactive than conventional one to one tutoring. I use Powerpoints, videos and I also provide lesson recordings at the end of each session. I use all the latest technologies in teaching like an interactive whiteboard, writing pen, etc.

- When are you available?

I am available Weekdays as well as Weekends

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I tutor all ages from 6 years and above.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Teaching has always been my passion and I do tutoring in my free time. I like to learn new things with online resources and I employ the same technique while tutoring my students. I make students learn how to use, pick the best available resources and the correct strategy to use to get the desired grades.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I give the tutoring according to students' needs and capabilities. I give students the work plan to reach A grades.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have more than 7 years of tutoring experience. I have taught many international students and I have also taught in Grammar Schools in Oxford as well. I am clear with all the subjects and I strive to make the concepts clear to students. I am master in Sciences and have in depth knowledge of Science and Maths. I am an Oxford graduate and I have been to all the grilling that students face while studying. I give customised course materials to each student which makes student easy to study and break the monotony of the textbooks. My lessons are structured with lectures and followed by questions. So each student get a feel of application of the knowledge they have gathered. Most importantly I focus on repeated revisions and exam practice to make sure the students do not forget the stuff.

Whats sets me apart from other tutors :
a) Tailor made lesson and lesson plan.
b) Friendly relationship with the students so that they don't hesitate to share any problem they have.
c) Detailed work plan set out initially and followed throughout.
d) Detailed course materials given at the end of each lesson and before the lesson as well for the students to pre-prepare
e) Lesson recording of each session for the students to revise later
f) Instant support anytime after the lesson as well
g) More emphasis on exam techniques and exam practice
h) Course materials are designed specifically for each student.
i) Regular advice and counselling on exam techniques and overcoming anxiety during exam time.

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

No

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Student Name: Sharon A
Level and Subject Taught: GCSE Sciences and Maths
Sharon was a very bright student. She used to understand the concepts very well but was lacking in answering questions scientifically. She was not successful enough in putting her knowledge into scientific writing. I found that quite soon by giving her a mock paper to solve. To get away with this problem I gave her segregated past paper question. I segregated the past papers for her chapter wise and asked her to prepare the chapter again and then solve the questions I gave to her which were segregated from the past papers. This technique helped her in understanding how to apply her knowledge she gained which preparing for the chapters. We worked on this strategy and Sharon felt better month after month and starting getting good results in her school test and mocks. Finally from C grade she bagged A grades in her GCSE.
A 5* review from Sharon:
Sharon Abraham - 10/11/2016
"Absolutely fantastic! Mahima has helped me a lot throughout my GCSE exams. She`s been very helpful and encouraging, she pushes her students to meet their goals and exceed. Moreover, she makes you feel very comfortable and explains a topic area until you understand without getting frustrated. Being an individual who was very weak at maths, she made me understand the basics and went through past exam papers which helped me to understand maths from a completely new level. Anyone who is struggling with GCSE/A-Level maths or science, I strongly recommend you to get in contact with Mahima, she is a fab teacher and even more, a great motivator. "

Student name: Charlotte S
Level and Subject Taught: GCSE Sciences and Maths
Charlotte was a very bright and inquisitive tutor. She was a having a great thrust of learning. She was also good in answering the questions but she used to answer only partly and never understood the question properly. I gave her a strategy of underlining the questions main point that it is asking for and then framing the answer. She found this technique really helpful and never left any part of the questions unanswered thereafter.

Student Name: Joel A
Subject Taught: Science and Maths in GCSE and also in A-levels
Joel was a already an A* student but as he stepped in A-levels his peformance dropped due to more pressure and detailed syllabus. I provided Joel with a detailed workplan and finished all his syllabus in December only which gave him good 4 months to practice on past papers and exam technique. He felt so light during the mock time as he was ahead with the syllabus. With this technique he managed to secure 100% in his final exams.

I give mahima 5 starts because she went through questions that appeared on past papers which is helpful as your getting a taste of what can appear on your exams. Then if I did not get the answer or I was confused she explained it in detail clearly to the extent I understood the question.
Thank you

Mahima is an excellent and dedicated tutor, who always makes sure that I'm engaged in the lesson and understanding how to work out certain questions, and giving me all the necessary information for the topics I study

Mahima conducted her herself in a professional and polite manner which made Alisha feel at ease and able to communicate without hesitation.
The lesson was well spaced out and Alisha was able to accomplish what she needed help with.

Got My Son to enjoy lessons
Fantastic Session. Thank you Mahima. My son had his first ever online lesson yesterday. As advertised it was free - very impressed. The Physics sessions was professionally engaging clearly set out and taught and the follow up email with attachments helped my son to write up his notes and ingrain the work.
