Background

I have more than 8 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.

Case Studies 1 :

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. "

Case Study 2:
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.

Case Study 3:
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.

She is a very good teacher who explains the subject very well and asks after every topic if you have understood everything to make sure you are not lacking any knowledge about the topic that you are struggling with.

I am a student in London. Mahima would tutor me once a week for 2 hours on maths and science topics and also work on past paper practice.
