Hello, my name is Karim.
I'm an enthusiastic, friendly, well qualified and experienced teacher of Maths, Verbal Reasoning, non Verbal Reasoning, Mental Arithmetic, Revision Strategy and Exam Techniques.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I help students in these areas:
- early support in Maths and problem solving skills (years 3 and 4)
- preparing for the 11+ exams or private school exams (years 4 and 5)
- to develop best practice exam techniques and a revision strategy (years 7 to 11)
- coping with the stress of exams and timed tests
- developing and implementing an effective revision strategy

I can make learning a fun process and help develop confidence which later leads to out-performance.
Tell me about your qualifications.
BSc with Honours in Physics from Manchester University
What kind of experience do you have?
I have tutored children for several years.

My style and approach is relaxed and informal. Although class discipline is always maintained I strive to make learning a fun process. Children are inspired to want to learn for themselves and take responsibility for their studies.

Children preparing for entrance exams are provided a framework to help them apply their knowledge under timed conditions. Common issues such as reading the question properly, checking the answers, running out of time, are dealt with.

Courses on exam techniques and revision strategy are integrated within the preparatory work for the 11+ exams and private school exams. As parents have come to realise, it's essential for children to be able to successfully apply what they have learnt under the potentially stressful conditions of an exam or test.

Students in high school can expect to receive guidance and support for exam techniques and revision strategy in preparation for the end of year or national exams.
How much do you charge?
£25/hour for group based tuition
£40 for the academic assessment
Where do you teach?
I teach in Pinner, Middlesex. Currently I have students travelling to me from Northwood, Eastcote, Ruislip, Northwood Hills, Hatch End, Rickmansworth and Watford

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I don't have a DBS Certificate as it is not a legal requirement for self employed tutors. The Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check is carried out by schools and other organisations before they employ someone to work with children or vulnerable adults. If you would prefer a DBS check prior to tutoring I'll obtain and pay for a DBS check and give you a copy of the DBS certificate.
Tell me about some of your current students.
Children who attended my classes passed the 11+ / private school entrance exam for one or more of these schools:
- Watford Grammar School for Girls
- Watford Grammar School for Boys
- Merchant Taylors' Boys School
- Queen Elizabeth's School
- Henrietta Barnett School
- St Paul's School
- Haberdashers' Aske's School for Girls
- North London Collegiate School
- South West Herts Schools Consortium

Many of my students received multiple offers of places from these schools.
