Information about Sunil
I provide 1 on 1 tutoring in your own home, tailored to the student`s needs and the syllabus. I believe very much in getting a firm understanding of the basics of the subject, as a lack of solid foundations is the reason why many students struggle.
If you want to work with somebody who knows these academic subjects inside-out, who really cares about you getting the results you need, and who will go the extra mile to help you (or your child) succeed, then please get in touch.
I always aim to make the material as interesting as possible for students, which not only helps them focus, but also helps with understanding. For example, when teaching maths concepts, I try to use examples that are relevant to the student`s other interests.
I like to help students work methodically and step-by-step through questions/problems until they are able to easily solve themselves without help. In maths and verbal reasoning for example, I teach simple repeatable processes that students can master to get the right answers (and to show their working so as to get partial credit even if they make a mistake).
I am a Cambridge graduate (from St Catherine`s College, Cambridge). My degree was in Natural Sciences, which includes a range of science subjects: I personally studied Physics, Chemistry, Crystalline Materials, Maths, and Experimental Psychology.
During and immediately after my degree, I did some voluntary teaching work in a secondary school, and also interviewed hundreds of primary school students to collect data for a developmental psychology research study.
After leaving university, I have worked in the world of business, in particular in areas relating to computer software (I have programming and software development skills), most recently educational software.
I also have experience helping out in a Pitman Training Centre, where I supervised students who were taking Pitman courses in IT subjects such as using a PC, using the Internet & email, word processing, spreadsheets, PowerPoint, and Microsoft Office.
In late 2011, I became a parent when my son was born. In 2012, I also intensively tutored an 11-year old boy (principally in maths and verbal reasoning) to take the entrance exams for 2 private schools in his area. He passed both with flying colours - he was one of only a handful of students (out of 200 candidates) to be offered a place.
I am also the author of several maths books (available on Amazon and elsewhere) including on Kindle and in paperback.
I currently work in developing and marketing computer software, principally software related to education.
Notes: I work flexible hours, so provided we arrange lessons in advance, I can usually adapt my schedule to suit your requirements.

Feedback For Sunil (3)
Very patient and thorough
Dunil Tanna is reliable, trustworthy and doing a great job helping my son with his maths. He is exceptionally knowledgable and definitely someone who and indeed I have recommended!
Sunil taught my younger brother Aamish, Maths GCSE. He was very professional, brought along all his paperwork to prove his qualifications. He explained and taught very well in a patient manner and tested Aamish to ensure that he understood the work completely. Sunil also brought along extra exam papers for Aamish to practise and went through them accordingly. Overall, excellent tutor, I would recomend him to others as his manner of teaching is effective and useful.
