I am an experienced, qualified teacher and tutor with a record of success helping students one-to-one to overcome specific difficulties in Maths and increasing their confidence. My students enjoy their Maths tuition sessions, as I am able to motivate them and encourage them to tackle questions using more than one method.
I graduated from Queen Mary, University of London in Mathematics with Finance and Accounting and went onto doing my teaching course PGCE. Since then, I have been teaching KS3, KS4 and KS5 for the last five years. I am the Second in Charge of Mathematics at my current school with responsibility of KS4 managing years 9, 10 and 11, a role which has greatly enhanced my knowledge of the new curriculum.

Experience: I have worked as a tutor since studying A-levels and have developed my skills much deeper by working in inner-London schools and tutoring many families. In addition, I have also worked as a qualified teacher for 5 years now inner-London schools and academies and therefore up-to-date with all new changes. I have a track record of outstanding results.
I know exactly what it takes to help your child achieve the grade they aspire to whether it be a Grade 9 or 5. I am very skilled in knowing how to approach different questions depending on your child`s current skill-set. I choose the best ways to make sure they remember. My techniques in tackling challenging maths questions are valuable and will ensure your child makes the most out of their session and ultimately their exam. Furthermore, I make sure to quickly find your child`s strengths and weaknesses. I aim they never make the same mistakes again, by teaching them exactly what they do not know.
I really enjoy tutoring as I get to see the progress my students make in a single session as well as a series of sessions. I have helped students move up from Grade 2 to 5 and Grade 3 to 6 as well as grade 5 to 8.
I consider myself to be a very affective tutor with a track record of delivering outstanding results. I make sure to quickly find your child`s strengths and weaknesses.

review(s) for Yaqub.
My daughter is taking her GCSE`s this year and was really struggling with her maths. We wanted to find a tutor who already taught at secondary school and we were very lucky to find Yaqub on Tutor hunt. Only a few lessons in my daughter already feels more confident. She has a maths work plan and has begun to comprehend aspects of her course work for the first time. Yaqub is a fabulous teacher and being deputy head of a maths department at a school, he is up to date with current GCSE exams and curriculum. He is reliable, comes prepared and also ensures my daughter learns to work things out herself with support. I highly recommend him.
Yaqub is a very professional Mathematics tutor, he knows how to keep my son focused and motivated. Yaqub explains the lessons very thoroughly. I highly recommend Yaqub.
