Information about Asma
Offering both zoom and Skype lessons at no extra cost!
I am a qualified Teacher with experience of teaching for more than 13 years. I have excellent experience of providing tutoring to students at GCSE and A level.
This year all of my GCSE students received grades7,8 and 9 in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
My A level students secured the following grades: 1) A*, A*, A*
2) A*, A, A
3) A*, A*, A, B
4) A*, A, B
They have gained places at their first choice universities with two starting medicine this year!
I have extensive experience of teaching all three sciences to GCSE and Biology and Chemistry to A level. I love teaching Science and want all my students to enjoy it too. In order to do this I ensure that Science is explained to them in a way that they will clearly understand key concepts and thus be able to apply them. I have excellent knowledge of SEN requirements and can target my teaching and tutoring to any specific needs the student may have.
I have recently worked at the exam board for Oxford and Cambridge (OCR), helping to develop and write exam and assessment material, analyse mark schemes and mark exam papers. This experience has made me appreciate the importance of assessment but also how to help students achieve the best grades.
All my students always exceed their target grades by two grades.

Can teach to all exam boards, with access to exam board developed questions and resources.
Feedback For Asma (16)
Asma is friendly, well-organised and easy to communicate with. She is able to explain things clearly and thoroughly. My daughter is pleased to have her as a tutor.
Asma is a great tutor. She really helped me with my A-Level Biology, which was my weakest subject. She gave really useful feedback on my exam technique and essays, explaining each time exactly how to answer the questions and get the marks. After only a few weeks, she helped me improve my exam technique and allowed me to reach my maximum potential.
Asma is highly intellectual who plans her sessions meticulously and is very focused on how she wants to approach each lesson. Her attention to detail is amazing. We find that this makes a huge difference . My daughter has found her approachable and has really opened up to her , in our opinion she is the best tutor .
I am very glad that I have found Asma for my son. There has been a tremendous improvement in his performance. My son enjoys studying biology more since he started his tuition from Asma.
Excellent tutor really informative and through knowledge
Although my daughter has had only a few sessions she is already seeing positive results. Although a hard worker this was not reflected before in her results which was impacting on her self esteem but having the weekly one to one sessions has made a huge difference helping her exam and study technique.
Brilliant and helpful
Asma is a fantastic tutor, who gives all her time and patience, allows students to ask as many questions as they want and always encourage her students to get the best of them .
Asma has only recently started tutoring my son in A level Biology but we are already seeing improvement. She is extremely pleasant and patient, which we appreciate.
Initial contact with Asma was easy and friendly and my daughter took to her straight away.
An excellent tutor. Asma is very reliable and goes the extra mile to help my son, setting and marking homework outside the time of the tutoring session. He understands the topics much more clearly and his exam technique has improved with her guidance. His test results have also improved so that he now has the predicted grade he needs for his university application.
Hardworking and kind tutor, would highly recommend
Asma tutored my son earlier this year over several months mainly in Alevel biology but also in chemistry. She was very reliable, well organised and planned the lessons each week. She was very encouraging and was able to help improve his predicted grade from a D to a grade A at Alevel.
Asma has been fantastic in supporting my daughter with her A- Level Chemistry/ Biology. My daughter has said she feels comfortable with her and that Asma has excellent subject knowledge and understanding of the exam process.
Very organized and knowledgeable teacher. Asma is tutoring my daughter in GCSE Biology and she is enjoying the lessons and finding them very helpful.
