Information about Kiran

I graduated from University College London with an MSci in physics in 2016 and have since been pursuing my passion as a full-time tutor. I have given thousands of hours of one-to-one teaching.

I attribute my progression so far with physics to patience and a deep desire for understanding. I hope to instill the same curiosity and passion for problem-solving that has allowed me to excel, whilst fostering a systematic approach to learning. I come equipped with four years` experience of studying the fundamentals of the subject, enabling me to provide students with a solid foundation for further study.

Mathematics is the language of physics. Through my education, I have found mathematics to both describe the physical phenomena that we can observe through experimentation and derive new relationships. I have studied this in-depth during my degree and will convey the necessary insights that the student requires during my teaching.

What I offer

FULLY PREPARED LESSONS
As a full-time tutor, I am committed to creating the best lesson plans and compiling the best exam questions for my students. The most important step to succeeding in Physics and Maths is to have good, regular question practice. I provide thousands of specification-appropriate exam questions for my students to work through in and out of the sessions. I also offer comprehensive specification-appropriate theory, providing a solid foundation of knowledge to build upon.

EFFECTIVE LEARNING HABITS
Learning is an acquired skill. I encourage students to adopt active forms of learning, including question practice and recall, whilst discouraging passive forms of learning, such as extensive note-taking and re-reading of textbooks. Students can improve the durability and versatility of their knowledge by spacing and interleaving their question practice. These techniques increase the amount of cognitive effort exerted. Whilst they may feel less productive at the time, learning is scientifically proven to be more effective in the long run.

CONFIDENCE BUILDING
On top of doing extensive exam question practice to build confidence, I remind students that intellectual ability is not wholly fixed. It lies, to a good degree, in our own hands. With greater cognitive effort we physically change the brain and its neural pathways. The mistakes we make are badges of effort, which offer useful corrective information and an invitation to double down on our efforts and try new approaches. When attempting questions I encourage experimentation, followed by reflection on the outcomes – a highly effective way of learning that some students may find daunting to do independently.

ENSURED LEARNING
I explain content through a variety of approaches, test my student’s understanding with question practice and revisit concepts/questions that they find difficult.

ADAPTABLE LESSONS
This is perhaps one of the most important aspects of one-to-one tutoring. The pace, structure and difficulty of lessons is tailored to the student’s ability and personality.

REGULAR FEEDBACK
With frequent corrective feedback, students are continuously guided in the right direction. It can often be hard to judge our own levels of ability. I provide weekly feedback on what I believe my students can do to improve.

__________

I constantly strive to learn new physics, maths, and approaches of teaching to help students achieve their full potential. I am very passionate about what I study and I look forward to helping you to the best of my ability!

Kiran is an excellent A level physics tutor. He has thorough and detailed knowledge, provides clear explanations and offers access to many useful resources. The sessions are well structured (he can both take the lead on which topics to cover or address specific areas if asked) and include regular testing to check understanding. He is helping keep my son understand difficult physics topics and so keep on track for the good grade he needs and is capable of. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
