Karim (Tutor in Pinner)
Information about Karim
Hello, my name is Karim.
I am a highly experienced and well-qualified tutor helping students prepare for the 11 plus, private school exams and Mathematics Key Stage 2 SATs. Exam techniques is one of my specialist skills.
My 11+ tuition courses have been designed to prepare children for all aspects of the 11+ in Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools, South West Herts Schools, and QE Boys entrance exams. They are relevant for children preparing for independent school entrance.
Understanding my pupils and devising a personalised programme of study lies at the core of my teaching practice. I have very small class sizes, typically 3 to 5 children in each. This means your child will have valuable one to one attention when they need it.
I can offer `1 to 1` and `2 to 1` tuition, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Your child will benefit from a modern and well-equipped classroom for optimal learning.
The working environment is friendly and stress-free. Pupils will have opportunities to build confidence as they interact with each other and socialise the learning of harder topics.
Availability: Weekdays, Saturday and summer holidays
I receive students from Northwood, Pinner, Eastcote, Ruislip, Rayners Lane, Harrow, Moor Park, Northwood Hills, Hatch End, Rickmansworth and Watford.

Exam techniques are integrated within the preparatory work and common issues such as these are dealt with:

- time management
My teaching style is calm and informal. Although class discipline is always maintained I strive to make learning a fun process.
As parents have come to realise, it`s essential for children to be able to successfully apply what they have learnt under the potentially stressful conditions of an exam or test. Additional support via exam techniques helps children take advantage of the knowledge they possess and have recently acquired.
