Information about Sal

Hiya,
I’m Sal, a masters in Biochemistry student and trained professional tutor with over 3 years experience and over 24 students all-together. I can tutor any science at ks3 to GCSE level and higher for biology. I tutor mathematics ks2-GCSE by exposing weaknesses and fixing them with practice questions and easier well understood steps to the correct answer. I have received excellent feedback from tutees for both subjects. While I adapt my teaching methods with each student, I believe in general subjects should be relatable and the main fundamentals should be laid for further knowledge to be built upon. For example, reaction rates should be compared to a decaying banana, momentum to a car crash and cellular communication to society. Meanwhile, learning should be focused on what is needed before going through extra knowledge too. This is because Exam boards value application and higher level suggest/evaluate/calculate questions are mostly application based. This way of tackling the subject is thankfully also so much more fun, a win-win! I also like to prompt you to "have a go" helping you be more analytical and proactive making the lesson a discussion and not me rambling on for an hour. I do this while maintaining your confidence by creating a environment where it is safe to make mistakes. At the same time, lessons will be taught on a problem-solve bases to cover your weaknesses. This is to keep our lessons focused and rewarding. I can provide homework too! I am so confident that you will enjoy and learn from my lessons that I offer the first lesson for free if it does not suit your needs!

Availability: Pop me a message and this can be discussed!

Experience: In addition to my students through school teaching/tutoring and other agencies, all my students have vastly improved and I could not be prouder of them all. One student was averaging 9/80 in chemistry exams and is now around the pass mark, another is moving to top set in maths and science and another went from average to scoring second highest in a top set maths class! I have reviews of students I teach currently outside this platform at the bottom of this profile so feel free to see what they have to say. So, whatever your goal or level, I am confident you will progress with me as your tutor! To get to where I am today, I have developed key revision strategies, a strong base for academic writing (I even wrote a short book on cancer) and a love for science! I am a library mentor at the university and have a strong understanding of how to prepare 1st class reviews, presentations and formal reports for biochemistry. I have several assignments above the 90% mark and average at 80% at university. I may help in how to prepare such assignments and understand university theory, especially with subjects related to Immunology and cancer. I have helped a friend who averaged 2.2/2.1 in assignments on how to work more smartly/effectively and gave him tips on how to be more evaluative. He is now averaging around 80% in his assignments too and is at a 1st. I have a 6-month experience as a teacher assistant as well as 1-year supply experience which has given me a strong insight in group-based learning if needed.


What some of my regular students have to say:
Imad Chakiri: “Salah is a very understandable and easy-going person which makes him the perfect individual for a role such as tutoring as he is able to teach any one and make everything easy for them. His great and humbling personality makes him the perfect tutor.”
Ibrahim Wajid: “Great tutor, explains everything in detail and goes above and beyond what a regular tutor would feel like they would have to do and always checks in with how your doing in school before going into his own lesson to make sure you are comfortable with work at school and even does extra days to make sure you’re well prepared for exams.”
Muhammed Hanif: “Saleh is an excellent tutor and really puts his all into helping you achieve a better grade. He does a lot of planning into lessons and spends a lot of time trying to analyse your weaknesses where he then focuses on how to improve them. You can tell he genuinely puts in a lot of effort into helping you and he also helps motivate you. He’s good at explaining things and coming up with analogies to help portray what he’s trying to teach. Over all If someone’s looking to get a tutor I highly recommend Saleh”

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

My daughter is in year 10 & has been struggling with maths for a while. She was a bit nervous about maths tuition especially online however Sal from the first session has made her feel comfortable & more at ease already with maths & her ability in getting a pass in year 11. She has only had a few sessions with him so far but she is enjoying it & said thanks mum it`s helping. The conversations I have had with him have also been very professional & helpful. I would recommend anyone who needs the help to see if Sal is suitable for you.

Five star Chemistry tutoring with Sal. My daughter confidence has grown and it is noticeable after each weekly session. Sal`s calm methodical approach is helping my daughter to understand and grasp the concepts she found difficult to pick up in her large class setting at school. Highly recommend Sal to parents whose children are not coping well in large class settings and require one to one in understanding the mysteries of chemistry.

Very professional and he cares a lot about the progress of his students. My daughter really enjoys her science class with him as he simplified it to her. Gave her a lot of confidence that reflects on the results of her assignments. Highly recommended him.

Sal has been tutoring my son online for a few weeks and I cannot be more pleased. Sal is patient and takes the time to explain each topic and formula so it is understood. His use of a whiteboard is a great visual and my son likes being taught in this way. Sal`s prices are reasonable, he is always respectful. He makes a point to make contact during the week to check on my son`s progress with homework that was set, or if he needed any help in between tutor sessions. I cannot rate Sal highly enough and I highly recommend him as a tutor.

Sal is knowledgeable both within his subject field and in skills such as organisation, time management, essay-writing, and presenting. Organised and punctual, he prepares for each session in advance, with the lessons always starting on time. He is friendly, understanding, and easy to get on with. As someone who is generally shy with new people, I appreciate Sal’s ability to make one feel at ease in a conversation. He makes it ‘safe’ to make mistakes, which has proven to be very effective at encouraging me to be more active than in class or with other tutors I’ve had. Sal lets you feel like you`re perfectly capable of doing what you need to. He also adapts to his tutees’ needs and preferences in things like the pace at which you go through the material, level of detail you go into, and how much homework you want to have, if any. For example: because I have a processing issue that makes it difficult to write, especially while talking, Sal takes notes on the whiteboard and makes sure to pause when I am taking notes. He is patient and never rushes me, only continuing when I say I’m ready to move on. Sal gives thorough feedback with constructive criticism and attention to detail, as well as much-needed praise on strong points of your response. It is clear that Sal puts a lot of effort into his work, and is dedicated to helping his students, offering to assist with any questions or difficulties you may have between sessions via email. What I especially like about Sal is that he challenges and encourages you to push limits - for example: whenever we are covering a topic from the A-level curriculum, he gives me more detail on the subject to deepen my understanding (which I value very much), while also giving me advice and tasks to prepare for university

Tutors Response :

Best wishes
Sal
