Dr Puri holds a PhD in mathematical modelling of medical data and a postdoc from University of Oxford. He has plenty of experience teaching Maths around Hillingdon. Dr Puri is an expert in making difficult problems look simple and understandable.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
For 11+ preparation, Dr Puri mainly do sample question papers. If the student get stuck, he helps them develop the technique to understand and solve the question using both short and long method (when possible). If the student is particular weak in a topic then he dedicates a class doing those questions for confidence building. Tanuj tries to understand student's thinking pattern first and then introduce new concepts while taking small steps ahead.
For KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4/GCSE, A-Level and University students, the classes are individually tailored to the student's needs. The students tell Tanuj in advance which topic they want to learn. He then prepares a few questions & solutions for the chosen topic to tutor during the joint session and encourage students to bring specific exercises related to the chosen topic. Tanuj asks student to solve problems in front of him to ensure that they have understood the concepts well. He then tries to help visualise maths when possible to enhance students capabilities in approaching a problem along side learning the methods. At the end, Tanuj points out the key points learned during the session.

Doctor (or Dr) is an academic title that originates from the Latin wordÂ docÄ“reÂ meaning 'to teach'. It has been used as an academic title in Europe since the 13th century. "Dr" is used as a designation for a person who has obtained a Doctorate (the highest level of academic qualification e.g. Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD)). The completion of a PhD is often a requirement for employment as a university professor, researcher, or scientist in many fields. In many parts of the world "Dr" is also used by medical practitioners as an honorary calling since the early 19th century, regardless of whether or not they hold a doctoral-level degree.

Tanuj is a very good tutor who has provided deep insights and useful advice. His approach is experimental, inductive, from details and examples to a general picture. I like that he's helped me make myself the right questions rather than just delivering his knowledge. I can tell he is also a good scientist as he puts practice and critical thinking first.
Absolutely amazing teacher with a wide range of knowledge in the subject. He wants his students to learn and understand rather than just memorise. I have been learning from him for more than 20 lessons and I have always learned something new in each lesson. I'd highly recommend to anyone who wants to achieve good grades.
I would like to recommend Dr Tanuj Puri as GCSE mathematics tutor who helped my daughter to get excellent grades. I was very impressed by Tanuj's teaching techniques and skills and I am confident he is the right person to tutor GCSE mathematics. He is exceptionally creative in his teaching approach setting high standards for students and motivating them to, not only meet, but to exceed those standards.
