A fully qualified Maths Teacher & English tutor with over 10 years teaching experience, I have an enriched and effective set of pedagogies and take great pride in my teaching styles. I believe the three main attributes that makes a fantastic teacher are a passion for the subject, a great sense of humour and consistent high expectations of all students regardless of their circumstances or starting points.I have a great desire in working with young people of diverse backgrounds and helping them to reach their academic potential.
Like any Teacher, I break down my tutoring sessions typically 1 hour; into a starter activity, main teaching, tutee work and plenary to assess progress. Unlike the school setting or tuition centres, my tutees have my full uninterrupted attention to their needs in learning. They deserve nothing short of this when seeking a private 1-1 education!
I will first assess how much of a certain topic they know and then plan my session from this information. Homework is set after tuition for further independent work and then marked with quality feedback to the tutee. I have a progress checklist that I sign off once they have successfully achieved a certain level. My tutees are given a copy for their own records. However Parents and tutees are more than welcome to make suggestions they feel is best for their progress and I will be happy to adapt. Furthermore, all teaching resources will be provided free of charge.
Please note rates are variable subject to a few factors such as journey times, distances and quantity of students being tutored per session. However with the exception of primary education, I offer one standard rate for all key stages. I strongly feel that my rate is highly competitive in comparison to other tutors on a like for like comparison.
Please feel free to get in touch and I will endeavor to respond asap with any further enquiries.

Experience: With 10 years of teaching experience I have provided home tutoring to many tutees in and around London & Essex areas. I have taught in The Totteridge Academy, Morpeth School and now a teacher at Central Foundation Boys School. I love teaching and enjoy tutoring outside of school. My students and tutees enjoy the lessons and raise their confidence in Mathematics. I have received very positive feedback from my tutees and they have obtained their required grade with me.

review(s) for Sahir.
Sahir is an excellent Tutor and has made an immediate impact with my son. He is very calm and patient and has a great ability to explain and test our sons knowledge and understanding. Sahir is very enthusiastic about maths as a subject and conveys this in his lessons. We are both really pleased with Sahir and would highly recommend him.
Tutors Response :
It`s a shame to see the 5 star review you wrote about my tutoring service for your son who was making significant progress in that short time I tutored him, now deleted from your feedback and dropped to a measly 1 star rating.
Short notice cancellations then requesting an alternative day then having provided you with another time slot then cancelling again the next day with a busy teacher like me, not only wasted my time but my other clients` time.
Clients with children that are high priority due to their GCSE/A level exams this year being rescheduled to suit your time. Only for you then to casually cancel again was unprofessional & inconsiderate on your part.
Never the less I wish nothing but the best for your 13 year old son and hope he does well with his replacement tutor.
I would recommend him
I would just like to say a big thank you to Sahir for all the tutoring he has given my son over the years. Helping to get him a good grade in his maths GCSEs.

My daughter has been receiving tuition from Sahir for a year now. Sahir`s teaching methods are very clear and concise. My daughter has gained more confidence in maths and her grades are improving. Sahir is reliable and we recommend his tutoring to anyone considering maths tuition.
Sahir has been tutoring my daughter for a few weeks now. He explains concepts clearly and uses practice questions to ensure she understands before moving on. Her confidence is increasing as a result.
Sahir was a brilliant tutor to my son for his GCSE maths. He never cancelled, always punctual. My son really learnt a lot for him. Really happy I found him on this site
Sahir has been an excellent tutor for my 15-year old son, who is preparing for his GCSE. Sahir is very organised and focussed on making sure the tutee achieves his target. With support from Sahir, my son has shown great improvements and I am very much hopeful about his getting a very good GCSE grade in mathematics.
Sahir is punctual and does not miss lessons. He is someone who is approachable and would give parents right feedback. Overall, he is an excellent tutor and I would recommend him highly to parents who are looking for a reliable maths tutor.
Excellent tutor, Sahir is very reliable and did a smashing job in helping my daughter achieve an A* in her maths GCSE
