Information about Umar

I am a qualified teacher with a PGCE, and a background in Aeronautical Engineering from Imperial College London. I have over 6 years of extensive teaching and tutoring experience. I am a patient, friendly and approachable individual, and it would be a pleasure to help you in your studies!

I qualified as an Outstanding teacher during my PGCE year, achieved a First-Class degree, obtained 4 A-stars at A Level (Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry), and 11 A-star - A GCSEs. Having successfully been through countless examinations I have first hand knowledge of how to excel in them. I will help you not only academically but also with your exam technique, revision technique, planning and managing your time and efforts to make sure you are fully prepared for your exams. I can also provide support for personal statements, CVs, cover letters, applications and interview preparation.

I typically use a revision guide, or the textbook itself, to simplify the information into digestible chunks, explaining concepts through simple diagrams and summarising them into a few key words. I encourage students to ask questions, it is the best indicator for where work is needed. I follow up each section with a short set of summary questions to really test students understanding. I tailor my teaching style to each students need, and have a habit of asking for feedback after every few sessions to truly tailor the sessions.

Availability: Only weekends

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: I am a qualified teacher and have helped students achieve outstanding progress, regardless of their starting point. I have been tutoring for over 6 years now. In these years I have helped students achieve A*s in their exams, perfect their personal statements, and see them get into universities and professions they aspired to.

Along with teaching and tutoring professionally, I have volunteered at various schools to tutor and support GCSE and A Level students from disadvantaged backgrounds reach their potential and break the so called `class ceiling` as part of the Schools Plus scheme and through my involvement wth the Teach First charity.

Highly recommend Umar! Very polite and friendly. My daughter got on very well with him. According to my daughter his explanations to the many questions she asked him were very clear and concise so no hesitation in recommending him.

Umar helped my daughter feel more confident about her A level chemistry work. He has a relaxed and informal approach and was good at explaining complex aspects of the syllabus in different ways to improve her understanding. He was well prepared for sessions and was conscientious in making sure he was up to date and had a good understanding of the requirements. In addition to improving her understanding of the chemistry, Umar also helped my daughter feel more confident about exam technique and knowing how to maximise her marks.
He was reliable and flexible and we would reccomend him as an A level tutor.
Thank you Umar!

I highly recommend Umar. In just over a month Rong`s grade moved up from a Grade D to a Grade A. He now believe in himself. Thanks for giving my son his confidence back. The online lessons on skype was conducted across 2 time zones. This would not be possible without such a great site. I have been recommending Tutor Hunt to friends.

Our son was struggling with A2 physics and was on the verge of losing interest in the whole subject. I`m really grateful that we found Umar through tutor hunt. (such invaluable website)

After the first few lessons with Umar our son was so much more confident and less stressed. Now, he is beginning to enjoy physics and is a lot more happier. Umar is able to explain things very clearly and he always makes sure our son fully understands the optic before they move on to the next one.

Umar is very organised and prepares well before hand,because of this not a minute of the session is wasted. from what I`ve seen and what my son told me, Umar has an excellent subject knowledge and he delivers it in a uncomplicated confident manner.

As a parent I`m very pleased with Umar. He respects our son and he treats him like a grown up. I feel Umar has a way of bringing out the absolute best out of his students.

Umar has been tutoring my son towards his AS exams in Physics and Chemistry since September 2014.
We are all very impressed with Umar’s approach to his tutoring.
He has excellent subject knowledge (having achieved extremely highly in his own A’levels) and always studies each topic in great depth. This is vital if a high grade is to be achieved. My son says “Umar is really good at explaining difficult concepts”.
Umar has also taught my son some excellent revision techniques and given him vital past paper practice.
Umar is very organised, conscientious and flexible. He is really approachable and has a calm and positive manner towards his students.
We would highly recommend Umar as a tutor.
