About Me

I am an enthusiastic tutor who enjoys building great rapport with my students. This helps them gain confidence with their work and helps me understand their learning style & interests. I tailor my lessons based on the tutee’s learning style and interests including pre-planned activities that make my sessions enjoyable and engaging.

Recent Tuition

Year 6 Entrance Assessment – Maths and Science

Adekola required maths practice twice a week for his entrance exam into Summer Fields School. Adekola was very bright but could be over confident leading to mistakes. Our practice sessions enabled him to control his nerves and improve his decision making.

13+ Maths and Science

Muyiwa required practice twice a week for his 13+ entrance exams. He was a very able student. We worked on past papers, building his confidence each time by working on his weaknesses and practising exam technique ahead of his entrance exams for Charterhouse and King’s Canterbury.

Year 9 Home Schooling

Oliver was junior tennis champion, whose parents decided he should focus on tennis as much as possible, while still learning. I planned his syllabus around his schedule for the whole year in physics, chemistry and biology. Oliver enjoyed asking questions around topics so I prepared videos for each lesson based on his learning style.

GCSE Physics and Mathematics

While working as a teacher at Fulham Boys School, I taught GCSE physics and mathematics (AQA).

IGCSE Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry

Ollie had been getting A/B grades in his mocks. With intensive revision sessions focusing on improving his exam technique, he achieved A* grades in mathematics, physics and chemistry.

IGCSE Science Home Schooling – Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology

Mahmoud and his family moved from the UAE to the UK in the year of his IGCSE’s. His parents decided home schooling was the best option for his IGCSE preparation. Using the Edexcel syllabi for both subjects, I taught Mahmoud mathematics and chemistry for the whole academic year. Mahmoud achieved a B in maths and As in chemistry and biology.

IGCSE Business Studies (Cambridge Examination Board)

Faisal grasped concepts quickly, but his exam technique was letting him down. We went through past papers both timed and untimed. We worked on planning essay answers and reading on business events outside school work. We also clarified concepts he was still unsure about by using real world case studies and analysis. This built his confidence ensuring he was well prepared for his mock exams.

AS/A2 Physics

Michael was a clever student who had almost given up on physics. He found the gap between GCSE and A level physics difficult to handle. I explained to him that he needed to frequently practise questions so that his decision making could improve. We worked on my catalogue of questions, attempting the difficult ones gradually. His self-confidence improved dramatically and he began to enjoy the subject. We went through past exam papers and built a timetable of weekly questions. Michael achieved an A grade.

A-Level Economics (Edexcel)

Sonny was an able student who was struggling with economics at school. I went through all the key concepts preparing him for all of the units. I encouraged him to make a habit of reading about economic events outside school and analysing the impact on the UK economy. We worked on quantitative economics and the use of simple diagrams to explain complex concepts.

A Level Physics and Chemistry (AQA)

Ahmed was a clever student who enjoyed discussions about Politics in the Middle East. However, he found capacitors and quantitative chemistry tough. We worked through questions extensively to improve his understanding in both topics and prepared him for his mock exams.

A Level Physics (Edexcel)

I created and taught course content for Fulham Boys School’s inaugural A Level physics department. This included lesson plans, practice questions, tests, practicals and educating the Year 12 students about university choices and career options with a physics A level.

IB Chemistry HL

Sadie attended St Edwards School in Oxford. She struggled with IB chemistry in her first year. I went through the whole syllabus providing clarity on all the topics, tests and practice questions to improve her understanding and self-confidence. In addition, we researched possible areas of interest that could enhance the quality of her course work. She has since returned to school well prepared for the second year of the IB chemistry course.

AS/A Level Chemistry (OCR)

Tomiwa had to re-do his AS levels and A2 chemistry in the same year. His confidence was quite low when we started. He particularly struggled with organic and quantitative chemistry. To solve his problem, I developed a lesson plan based on questions of varying difficulty to identify areas of strength and need. We went through past exam papers for every module; I also used my questions catalogue to help him improve his understanding if the subject. Tomiwa was successful in gaining a place at Sussex University to study Biomedical Science.

Degree Level Corporate Finance (University of Manchester)

Gherardo was studying economics at the University of Manchester. He failed his Finance paper and had to re-do the exam in the summer months. We worked on case studies I prepared in conjunction with his university syllabus, enabling him to understand how interpret balance sheets, income statements and statement of cash flows. His retake was successful, enabling him to continue the course.

Msc Strategic Marketing (Imperial College Business School)

In the summer term, Jerado was required to complete an applied strategic marketing report after a work placement where he executed a Strategic Marketing Consulting Project.  I guided him through the whole process from selecting the right placement to completing his course work.

Hobbies and Interests

I am an avid sports fanatic. As well as playing football, I love Arsenal FC.

Testimonials

“Ak tutored me for a short period before my final exams. My tutorials were focused on business strategy and Ak gave me good guidance and support, which helped to give me extra confidence, leading to a good result in my strategy paper. He was particularly efficient in having read through and analysed the work prior to the lesson.  He always provided clarity on the subject matter at hand.”

Parent of AS/A2 Chemistry and GCSE Maths student

“Ak prepared Luxman for the Westminster School Challenge (Mathematics) and Eton College King’s Scholarship (Mathematics) papers, guiding him through developing the right thought process required to structure answers to challenging questions in these scholarship exams. His method of encouraging Luxman’s intellectual curiosity tempered with allowing him to develop a hypothesis testing strategy for probable answers is still of great value to Luxman as a Westminster student today.”
