Mariyam is an excellent tutor. My daughter is doing A level Sociology and finds these lessons very helpful particularly as Mariyam goes over exam questions and gives really useful feedback and tips. She is very engaging. We would highly recommend her.
Mariyam is a professional and reliable tutor who has helped my son to develop his independent study skills and techniques. We are very happy with the service received.
Excellent tutor who helped my daughter through her A Level Sociology. Provided plenty of honest feedback and marked papers to enhance the learning experience. Maryam has been patient yet encouraging to keep up with revision and have lots of tips for revision and exam questions. Thayou for your help through this difficult time.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND ! Mrs.Mariyam has always gone above and beyond when it comes to teaching. She has always been willing to mark my essays outside of lessons and provides good constructive feedback that has helped me massively improve my grade in psychology within a space of one month before my exams . Mrs.Mariyam is also currently an examiner and therefore she is able to provide you exactly with what examiners are looking for in your answers . She has helped me improve my style of writing in 16 marker questions and has also provided me with many tips for various 16 marker questions .
Mariyam tutored me for A level Sociology and I always enjoyed our sessions. She made me feel more confident going into my exams as she helped me to understand the topics better, taught me the exam skills needed, constantly provided great feedback/things I could improve on and would send useful resources to aide my revision. Mariyam definitely provided me with the support I needed and she has great interests in doing so, which I believe makes a massive difference between a good tutor and a fabulous tutor. Mariyam was definitely a fabulous tutor. Thank you!
Really helpful tutor, would definitely recommend- explains concepts in a clear way using very helpful resources and activities. Also flexible as to what areas you need help with specifically so every session is very useful! Thanks so much :)
She looked at my essays really well and went into detail on what I needed to improve. I got offers from all the universities I applied to using this essay. Thank you so much
My son who is studying A-levels has been having tutoring sessions with Mariyam for the last 6 months now and they have proven to be very helpful both in terms of understanding the subject as well as his grades that went up from B to A. I would highly recommend this tutor. She makes sure you understand the subject and present it in a way that reflects your confidence in the topics being tested.
I have had three lessons with Mariyam so far and have just completed my mocks. I have really enjoyed my tutor sessions and felt much more confident sitting my exams. I look forward to continuing with her until I sit my A levels.
Mariyam is an amazing Tutor, she is helpful and hardworking. She helped me with my personal statement for PGCert, I can`t thank her enough.
I am a year 13 student who needed help writing a personal statement in psychology. Mrs Mariyam helped me so much with this difficult process. She gave me a deadline to reach and when I sent her my personal statement she immediately corrected it for me. When sending her an email she always responded very quickly so I always felt guided through the process. Plus she is very flexible with the process of it all and quickly adapts to how the student prefers working. Her advice is very concise and effective to the final result. I would strongly recommend Mrs Mariyam with any help in personal statement.
Ms Mariyam was incredibly helpful when it came to writing my personal statement. Not only is she thorough but also very well versed in what universities want to see in your PS. I couldn`t have written a personal statement half as good without her.
Mariyam has just started tutoring my son for A level Psychology on Zoom. She seems very knowledgeable and organised. Mariyam is very responsive to messages and communication with her very easy. My son enjoys the sessions- it is an opportunity for him to practise exam techniques and gain insight into the exam topics.
Mariyam has been a lot of help to my daughter in year 12. She makes specific powerpoint for the psychology topic my daughter wants and goes through it thoroughly and gives her exam questions and marks them with useful feedback. Very helpful!!
Mariyam has really helped me in terms of my sociology A-Level. I`ve understood a lot more thanks to her!
Mariyam is working very well with my son. She has good knowledge of the curriculum (A level sociology) and helped a lot. Highly recommended.
Mariyam is a wonderful tutor. She explains the work very clearly and gives really good feedback - Sarah
