Information about Kiran
I graduated from University College London with an MSci in physics, achieving upper-second class honours (2:1) in 2016. I have since been pursuing my passion as a full-time tutor and 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 session. I also offer specification appropriate theory for my students, giving them a solid foundation of knowledge to build upon.
CREATION OF EFFECTIVE LEARNING HABITS
Learning is an acquired skill. I push students towards more effective methods of studying. This could include increasing the amount of cognitive effort exerted whilst learning, spacing and interleaving their practice or moving away from note-taking and reading towards more active forms of learning such as question practice and recall.
On top of doing extensive exam question practice in the sessions to build confidence, I try to remind students that intellectual ability is not wholly fixed and lies, to a good degree, in our own hands. With more 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. I also express the importance of experimentation and reflection on the outcomes when studying a highly effective way of learning that certain students may find daunting.
I explain content through a variety of approaches, test my students understanding with question practice and revisit concepts/questions that students find difficult.
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 students ability and personality.
With frequent corrective feedback, students are continuously guided in the right direction. We are often poor judges of our own 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!

Feedback For Kiran (36)
Dedicated tutor who gives feedback after every lesson. Very thorough and approachable.
My son has recently started lessons with Kiran for both A level Maths & Physics. My son is extremely happy with Kirans teaching and has commented on how quickly each lesson has helped him to understand and apply the subjects. He has had other tutors in the past, and has told me that Kiran is an excellent tutor and far better than anyone he has had in the past!!
We have recently started tutoring sessions with Kiran and have been very impressed. He is very organised and efficient and his sessions so far are very well planned to give my daughter the help that she feels she needs.
Tejwant Singh (Mr)
Very organised with notes and questions. Helps clear any doubts you may have and provides you with a good overall understanding of the concepts. Has lots of questions organised by topic and exam board. Overall, very helpful. My child received A* in A level Physics under his guidance.
He was supposed to work with my nephew who was overseas at the time. In the end my nephew found a tutor closer to home. I rated Kiran on our interaction, he seemed professional and understanding of our situation.
My son really benefited from working with Kiran and the confidence boost going into each Exam was worth every penny. would confidently recommend.
Kiran is a very good one-to-one tutor. He is currently helping my son with physics, after so many missed classes in school during the pandemic.
Kiran has been assisting this year my son with A level physics (Y13) .My son is extremely pleased with the way the topics are covered and the lessons have helped him massively. Kiran provides powerpoints and goes through the theory and exercises in detail. He thoroughly deals with anything challenging and prioritises his teaching according to the individual needs, ensuring there are no gaps. He will go the extra mile and share with the student additional material to work on if it is needed or when he is asked . He does not waste any time during the lesson and the communication is excellent . I would highly recommend Kiran as he is proven to be a very well organised, knowledgeable and proactive tutor with excellent teaching skills .He is also very responsive to messages and keeps parents informed. Five stars from me
Kiran is a knowledgeable and patient tutor who has helped my daughter with her ALevel Physics.
