Information about Shamim
2022 - Offering 1 to 1 classes for GCSE and GCSE Maths and Science and A Level Biology and Chemistry
I am a current Student Doctor with over 7 years of teaching experience. I have a 100% success rate in students continuing their tuition with me for the full duration of their course and a 100% success rate in boosting all grades by 2 grades or more.
I have spent almost 10 years studying and completing exams and over 7 years teaching. I understand that different people have different revision techniques. Thus, I will always tailor my tuition and create a personalised programme for each and every student. My first session is a taster session to understand your childs current study techniques, preferences and needs as well as going through their exam board syllabus and my resource bank (notes, homework booklets and past papers) to identify how best to help your son/daughter.
My efforts go way beyond the usual style of tutoring. I actively check the exam board specifications and keep up to date with any changes made by the boards. My tuition support goes beyond the `hour slot` as students are able to contact me via phone, email and tutor hunt messaging. I remain engaged with the lesson and do not `clock-watch`. My lessons are active and engaging and a personal tuition programme is always developed and tailored for the specific needs of each pupil. I am also fortunate to have compiled a huge collection of resources for each subject that I tutor, and these have seen many students obtain their desired grades and places and university (medical school, pharmacy, clinical psychology etc.)
Typical lesson structure:
The first 5-10 minutes are always dedicated to a Starter activity recapping last weeks lesson (repetition to boost your childs memory). Following this, tutoring sessions are delivered in 15 minute chunks with ten minutes of teaching followed by 5 minutes of testing your Childs understanding and their ability to answer important exam questions. This is repeated three times. The remaining time is dedicated to feedback and going over content the student struggled with and providing homework. Monthly assessments are provided on the fourth or fifth week to assess your childs understanding and feedback is regularly provided to parents. Students are provided with a checklist during the first session and will tick topics off as they are taught throughout the year.
My presentations, notes on every topic and homework questions are such that my students no longer require their textbooks. I would highly encourage booking 1 lesson to try all of these premium resources.

Experience: Previous teaching and mentoring experience:
2020-2022: I have mentored and tutored pupils into medical school through teaching challenging concepts, reviewing their personal statements and guiding them through difficult application processes.
2019-present: Tutored students A Level Biology (please feel free to read the reviews they have left me). I use my excellent in-depth resources and thorough notes for the new A Level Biology Syllabus. I will soon provide student reviews of my notes and resources and their results on my profile. I have tutored Eleven Plus students. I currently tutor a lot of A Level Biology and GCSE Maths students. I have taught students First year of A Level Chemistry. My summer 2019 students went fro D/E grades to A*-B grades and my students have successfully got into medical school.
2018 - 2019 NCS: I have worked as a Senior Mentor mentoring a group of 10-13 individuals. Upon excelling in this role, I have been called back to mentor again this year. Although it may seem irrelevant, this experience is incredibly relevant. Tutoring is also similar to mentoring and coaching;; students need to feel that I are receiving support from some who is professional, knowledgable and fully invested into their success.
2018 - present: I have successfully coached and assisted numerous students into medical school.

Through my blog and online service, I have supported students with their study approaches and applications to medical school. I have coached students with medical school interviews. Students I have supported have obtained their offers into medical school and other university courses.
