Information about Shahid

***Special Summer course for science and maths with limited places to prepare you for your GCSE or A level exams for the upcoming academic year***.

A medical doctor, currently head of A-level sciences in an outstanding sixth form school, with deep rooted passion for science and medicine, hence extensive tuition experience over 17years ranging from GCSE to Medicine, Pharmacy and other degree subjects!


RESULTS 2019-2021: Following tremendous success with students during the pandemic (academic years 2019-2021), with 100% students achieving grade 8/9, or at A – levels achieving B–A* (and all year 13 students getting into medicine or STEM/finance related degrees with my coaching and mentoring), I will be running a Summer course for science and maths. This will cover all the GCSE and A level syllabus for science and maths to better prepare for the upcoming academic year.

As the founder of an online tuition company, I remain actively tutoring as I do enjoy it and it helps refine my skills - whilst now formally teaching in mainstream schools.

Aside from completion of my BSc in Cardiovascular Medicine (at Imperial College) and my medical degree in the States, I have taught Anatomy, Physiology, Neuroscience and Psychiatry at a private university. I have been tutoring GCSE, A-levels, UKCAT, USMLE and degree level (medicine, pharmacology, nursing and sciences) for 15 years. Currently I am the key stage 5 coordinator for A-level sciences and providing mentoring and training for UCAS applicants.

(Special rates are available for group sessions.)

Sessions are tailored to the student and focus on an understanding of the topics and then their application in exam questions. The pace is what`s comfortable for the student and the sessions are informal to allow the student to ask questions and make notes as they wish.

However, my students are offered an exclusive discount to an online, syllabus-specific video library complete with revision and exam practice should that be helpful, otherwise, I still offer one-to-one for those requesting.

Friendly and organised approach amalgamating topic understanding with revision and exam practice. Tuition extends also to UKCAT, USMLE and interview preparation.

Recently have worked with a company to launch an online video library of all my tuition at a fraction of the price for which I can provide details further although the launch is scheduled for this Summer.

Reasons why students choose me:
- confident and affective communication skills
- well versed in syllabus and exam papers for all the UK exam boards
- simultaneous revision and exam practice to cover required syllabus (entire or just certain elements depending on your requirements)
- tuition is aimed at instilling knowledge and skills so the student can become an independent affective student
- for those with a limited budget online tuition or travelling to me is discounted
- group bookings of more than 1 student further reduces cost per student
- sessions tailored to individual needs

Availability: Flexible throughout the week and weekend (dependent on availability with ongoing bookings). Can discuss further.

Willing to travel: 50 miles

Experience: Having reached assistant headship in science, trained science departments to achieve outstanding results, and privately worked with hundreds of students to entry into Russel Group Stem courses (including Oxbridge and Imperial), I`ve developed teaching programmes that have proven success. My forte remains training and mentoring students wishing to student sciences or medicine at university. I have also taught many medical students in London and surrounding counties, and was a teacher at a private medical school for Anatomy, Physiology, Neuroscience and Psychiatry. Tutoring privately is something I have been passionate about since high school and have continued to do so over the years through university and beyond in my professional career.

Dr. Shahid is a great teacher. He has lots of tricks to make easy physics. My daughter enjoyed a online class with him, it was the short topic.

Tutors Response :

Thank you the tact of a teacher is to tailor the progress of the lesson to match the abilities of the student and then push them to develop further, whilst still addressing content, misconceptions and exam practice. She`s a very motivated student and it makes the process easier.

Shahid was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. He structured our sessions based on my learning objectives and provided me with the sessions afterwards to help me to revise. Highly recommend if looking for a tutor.

Dr Shahid is up-to-date with my son’s curriculum, and his approach to teaching is directed to the child’s needs.

There were too many cancellations before the first lesson and also being late to the lesson on the very first day. I thought I wasn’t taken seriously. No work was given to my child to say the least. I just hope that was only for me and it won’t happen to others. Thank you.

I arranged for the teacher to take my daughter in A level Biology and Chemstry He stated he can travel for 30 miles on his profile, when I rquested him to travel to us he stated he can only tutor in his home. My daughter went for introductory lesson and his teaching arrangement was very poor ,very small room with no place for my daughter to rest and write.He was also at same time looking after his 2 small children so not sure how effective the lesson would be I asked him to come to ours instead because of poor teaching arranement in his home, he raised his fee to £45.00 per lesson instead of stated £35.00 in his profile. I opted for skype tuition and he does not appear to have a fixed teaching slot as he kept changing times and dates. We paid him £35.00 for the first lession as well as paying for purchasing his details and I have purchased the details of two more teachers for my daughter. The tutor hunt has not responded to my email in this regard

He is an Excellent teacher BUT too busy to be a tutor. Doesn`t have time for students and keeps cancelling appointments at the last minute.
A bit disappointed though he is a very good teacher when he has the time.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the feedback. Apologies I`ve not been able to make as much time for your son as he`d like due to the loss of teachers in a school I support has meant I`ve had to run extra teaching for the school where I work and furthermore in another sixth form to support their students which includes Saturdays and this has impeded my private tuition in the last few week. Wish you and your son all the best.
