Over the last 10 years, I have developed a Maths, English, and Science tutoring business for underachieving and underconfident children, covering KS2, KS3 GCSE, AND A LEVEL. I use a combination of online, interactive maths support and face-to-face tutoring for children and young adults who for one reason or another find maths difficult.

i have also recently got a lot of students who have passed their 11+ entrance exams with flying colors all this due to my excellent teaching skills! I also have a PhD and an PGCE therefore i can ensure that i maximise the best out of students/adult learners.

My approach to learning is to build up the pupil’s confidence by getting them to believe they are capable of improving and increasing their enjoyment of maths.

I have tutored boys and girls from Private and State schools, including Eton, UCS, City of London, Haberdashers, Abingdon Boys, Eaton Square(Mayfair), London Oratory, Mill Hill, Wetherby’s, and the UCL Academy. This has included 11+ entrants, A-level, and many GCSE students. All of my tutees enjoy their lessons, which are fast-paced and challenging. 5 of my tutees have achieved grade 9`s (A**) and have got into their desired college and 6th form

Availability: i am available at all times . Just drop me an enquiry and i will be ready!


Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: In my experience working with many students in a supportive, relaxed, and friendly atmosphere on a one-to-one basis is completely the opposite of the classroom environment.

Students often find it difficult due to peer pressure to question when struggling to understand a particular topic. On a one-to-one basis, this is easily overcome and it does result in significant improvements in their attainment.

I have the experience and skill to help pupils make speedy progress towards achieving their goals. I work from home or at the pupil`s home and online.

My aim is to improve the students predicted grades and for them to go away with a sense of achievement.

Farooq is an excellent tutor who has helped me so much in my exams.He explains things very clearly with the relevant detail and sends me exam questions to do which helps me understand the topic clearly.

Farooq, was very helpful for my son in preparing for his psychology A level. We only had one session in the end as my son wished to have face to face tutoring (too much zoom teaching in lockdown I think), but my son found Farooq very helpful and I found all communication to be very polite and responses to emails be sent in a timely manner.

Mr. Farooq is the best tutor I have ever met. Farooq is very positive and welcomes every challenge as something to overcome. Farooq is very determined to get you the best grade. Before I met Farooq I wasn`t doing so well in the subjects I took at A level. After I met Farooq he helped me improve and we went over multiple exam papers until I was one of the best students in my class. I would really recommend you get Farooq as your tutor.
