I was looking for a 1-1 tutor to help my daughter with the 11+ GL, CEM and Newstead Woods exams this coming September. My daughter is quite shy, but she instantly felt comfortable in Samia’s lessons. Samia is a fantastic tutor, clear, concise, focused and thorough, whilst at the same time being patient and kind. Samia assesses your child to ensure the right areas are focused on in all subjects and tailors the lessons weekly, to target any weak spots in these areas. Although our focus is comprehension, vocab and VR, I have often asked Samia to go through some specific Maths concepts, which she has allocated time to go through these concepts to ensure they are clear. I am really pleased I found Samia, knowing my daughter has these 1-1 lessons each week with a qualified tutor is reassuring and has massively helped build my daughters confidence. I highly recommend Samia to anyone looking to enhance and expand their child’s abilities.

Samia has been one of the most helpful and patient tutor I ever had. She has helped me a lot with my A Level Business assignments and exams which resulted to me getting top marks and Distinctions to all of my courseworks. She is amazing at explaining complex concepts in a simple, understandable way while teaching me how to answer exam questions properly and improve my scores. I believe she has prepared me well for my on going university studies and taught me the right syllabus. From my experience she has been a fantastic tutor and I highly recommend her to anyone struggling with their assignments or need a little push to get these top marks they need.

Samia helped me to write my personal statement which was tailored to applying for a Business Management undergraduate degree. In our lessons she clearly explained to me what would be essential to include, and greatly helped me to put together a well structured statement. Samia also helped me select what to include out of my extracurricular activities to include and ensured that my statement was within the word count whilst including everything that I wanted to discuss. She was friendly, helpful and professional and I am now so happy with my personal statement. I would definitely recommend her!

Samia is an excellent tutor. She has immense knowledge and experience of success of guiding pupils through the 11+ exams. She is very thoughtful and patient. Her educational techniques are very innovative and involves thorough two way communication/ feedback. My daughter who will be sitting for the (London Collegiate exams in 2021) commented, “she’s the best teacher she has had and she has taught me new things, which the school never did!”. All in all we thoroughly recommend Samia if you want your children to succeed in the 11+ exams (whether Private or Grammar Schools).

Samia has been working with my son who is doing a BSc in Business Studies. Initially I was looking for support for him with essay writing skills in one particular module, HR. Samia helped him to critically evaluate performance management systems, policies and theories and work-life balance as well as working on essay writing skills - how to structure them and to build on critical analysis. At time of writing Samia continues to support him with careers coaching, guidance on placements and helping with application process. When asked for feedback, my son described Samia as “very professional, structured, systematic, understanding and friendly”. From the point of view of a parent liaising with Samia from time to time, I would add that I also find her professional, understanding, supportive and am thrilled to have her onside. I would highly recommend her as a tutor.

Samia has recently started teaching my daughters. She is teaching English and Business Studies for GCSE to my elder one and helping with exam entrance to private school to my younger one. Her classes are incredibly effective and both my kids look forward to the lessons. This has helped my daughter with the GCSE mock exams and strategise her answers according to exam objectives. I would highly recommend Samia to anyone looking for GCSE and entrance exam preperation.

Samia has coached our child for the past 18 months to prepare for the 11+ which is due Monday 19th October. He has grown in confidence and feels as ready as is possible. He has enjoyed Samia’s style and she has concentrated on his weaker areas building confidence and ability. She is brilliant with him and makes him feel settled and special- that’s a special gift.

After trials with many tutors I was lucky to find Samia. She is highly professional and effective. Initially I found Samia to prepare my daughter for her 11+ exam for a prestigious grammar school. Samia does so much more than just teach my daughter, she gives her confidence, encouragement and structures the lessons to suit her needs. The content is excellent and she makes the lessons very engaging. We have built a very positive relationship and I have also asked Samia’s expertise to prepare my older daughter towards her Maths IGCSE. They both look forward to the lessons and the improvement is tremendous. I have nothing but praise for Samia. Thank you so much.

Samia has been teaching me English Language and English Literature for several months. The knowledge I gain from the sessions with Samia have greatly improved my confidence and overall grade. She has a thorough knowledge of all Shakespeare texts, modern and literary heritage texts, fiction & non fiction prose and poetry. During lessons we debate on the different interpretations and evaluate conflicting perspectives. I can expand on my points much better now and contextualise my essays. Samia is always so approachable, helpful and understanding. I would arrange a lesson everyday if I could! Highly recommend to anyone studying English and Literature.

Having read numerous tutor profiles and associated reviews, Samia`s profile and credentials really did stand out.

Samia is assisting my daughter with English Literature & English Language (GCSE.) She is certainly dedicated and pushes ahead with a work-plan. Flexibility and availability are key and in this regard again Samia ticks the boxes. It is refreshing to have a tutor with energy and vision and certainly someone my daughter may look up to for guidance and inspiration.
