I am a university student studying mathematics at Imperial College London. I achieved A* in Maths, Further Maths and Physics A-levels. Also I obtained 8 A*s and 2 A's at GCSE (including A*s in Maths, Further Maths and all 3 Sciences). My lessons are individually tailored to each student and aimed at primary, secondary and college students. I build students confidence in Maths and Sciences, make it fun, help improve their study skills, encourage progress, communicate with parents and provide exam tips where necessary.
I have been tutoring students for 2 years now. I have privately mentored 2 students throughout Year 10 and they achieved a majority of A*s and As. I was also a maths assistant for Year 7 and 8 at my school.

Shivam is a fantastic tutor. Really helped me through my first year of Maths A level. He is a lifesaver, don’t know where I would be without him. I also would like to add that Shivam is hugely knowledgeable in this area and if anybody is struggling with Maths, Shivam will no doubt improve your ability and take you to the next level.
Really helped me with my AS Maths exam - wouldn’t have got any marks without him!! Helped me gain confidence in my maths ability and work through areas I struggled with a friendly and positive attitude. Would definitely recommend Shivam to anyone wishing to improve their maths ability!
