Information about Karim

I have studied both Chemistry and Biology at A-Level and have in the past taught the subjects to family and friends. I have mentored for over 30 years at GCSE level!

Having personally taught my daughter, I`ve realised what students are finding difficult, and how to approach the teaching, so that the pupils can find the subject both interesting and easier to comprehend.

Some school teachers simply give textbook, notes etc and put the info on the "whiteboard" and expect you to grasp the subject! How can you really learn the subject? You need a 1 to 1 Tutor to unlock the confusion, build the foundation and simplify the topic! This will also help you at Advance level.

Often students don`t ask the teachers questions in class as they are too afraid, or feel it would disrupt other students. Some may not get a chance, as not all teachers encourage pupils to ask: "Any questions, please ask me?" They are often embarrassed about being intimated by other students.

With a One to One Tutor as least you can ask me even the simplest question and get the query resolved. I appreciate the difficulty many students face. Rest assured once I have explained it, you can never forget the concept and as simplify it to the basic level.

I also provide useful summary notes on the key topics studied together with past exam questions at GCSE with full solutions so that you see your progress. These are sent by email. Furthermore, I email your parents/guardian to let me know how you are doing. I create a WhatsApp group with student and parent.

I recently taught a student recently how to remember the 1st seven key elements which make up the composition of the human body i.e. OCHN.. etc The approach was easy that I think he will never forget the sequence because there was some funny logic applied eg my name initials applied - Lol!

If your GCSE Exams for Science are in June 2021 and you are finding some of the concepts difficult, please seek a Tutor Hunt immediately to improve your grades. Don`t just leave to the last minute revision! You won`t be able to cram so much information in the last few months!

Sadly, due to Covid-19, all students have lost vital schooling since March - July 2020. It is vital you catch-up and make up the loss time. Taking additional Tuition is now vital.

As the saying goes, if you enjoy the concepts, you will pursue the subject further.

I wish you every success in your future studies and career. Thank you for choosing me at Tutor Hunt.

Apologies, but due to parking restrictions in many West London surrounding areas, weather condition, fuel cost, etc... I may be unable to visit your location, although in exceptional circumstances. This also keeps my fees very competitive.

Also due to social distancing on Corona Virus, I prefer if a student visited my home in the interest of safety. Sorry, I am no longer visiting homes to due current safety guidelines by the Government.
The student vising my home will have to show they tested negative on the previous day prior to visiting using the NHS Lateral Flow Test Kit.

A minimum of 1 - 2 hours is desirable required for comprehensive Tuition. Please contact me via Tutor Hunt to discuss this. Take advantage of a 2-hour slot in one sitting for just £50, instead of £64

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Teaching Chemistry and Biology at the simplest level so pupils can understand the core level and enjoy the subjects. I have been doing this for over 30 years!

Many of the topics in say science subjects/maths are never quite fully explained in school or are quite complex.
1 Why is Aluminium Oxide Al2O3, Sodium Sulphate Na2SO4. If CaCO3 is OK, why is NaCO3 not?
2 Why do metals conduct electricity and non-metals don`t?
3 Why is Fluorine the most reactive non-metal at top and yet the most reactive metal is at the bottom?
4 How to Enzymes work and why are they a necessity in living organism?
5 Why does the inside of a Greenhouse get hotter?
6 Women weighing just 50Kg can crack a tile with heel shoes, yet a 1,000Kg elephant will NOT!
7 An element emits just a Beta particle but its Atomic No. increases by 1. Why is this?
8 Water boils and 100C yet in a pressure cooker you can achieve temperatures of 120C. How come?
9 The lowest temperature possible is -273C. But why no limit to the highest temperature?
10 Why not use Gamma rays (shortest wavelength) to view detailed Atomic Structure?
11 By increasing the pressure, you can increase the temperature. What law proves this?
12 How much Nitrogen gas do we need in to produce 10Kg on Ammonia (NH3)?
13 How do plants take up minerals when there is insufficient amounts in the soil?

I hope to make these and many other concepts easier and simplified so pupils can grasp the subject matter and achieve outstanding GCSE results. You`ll never get a chemical formula wrong once you learned my method and many of the mysteries will be unlocked.

I also teach Maths and Physics at Key Stage.
