Information about Koka
The effective strategized Metacognitive approach based on Cognitive learning techniques developed as a senior tutor at the University of Cambridge aims to support, guide and help students tap into their unlimited potential and focusses on empowering the student. Students are guided to enjoy improving Learning skills and Exam Techniques and gain happiness from well strategized, relaxed, focussed, effective and joyful academic work. Students aged between 7 and 57 have been supported to attain their goals.
The student and the Parents are free to ask questions and have discussions thus building communication. Attention is given in each lesson to marks-schemes and the specification in addition to making good clear notes. Both are geared to improved exam technique.
Excellent teaching method and mind-mapping are coupled with effective encouragement, kind specific suggestions, clear explanation, focussed target setting and evaluation for regular improvement. Focus is on an individualised flexible approach to the specific issues the student has so that confidence is built with each session in a real and well evaluated manner. Students and Parents are involved in creating an effective strategy as they are part of the team. Communication is encouraged so that stress is decreased in the student and the family. We form an effective team to support the student.
They are encouraged to ask questions and have discussions as needed. Having helped students of all backgrounds gain entry in top Universities around the World, I have 21 years experience mentoring students to get As and A-stars. We have together converted Us to As and A stars. I focus on what the student needs in a flexible way to help improve Exam Techniques, Study techniques, Mindfulness, awareness training and efficient revision techniques. With my extensive experience helping students of varied abilities including Dyslexia, ADHD etc. Students are guided with patience and a focus on their strengths so as to eliminate weaknesses and build self-esteem
I work along side the student demonstrating schematic labelled diagrams, flow charts, explaining, discussing and encouraging the student to ask questions to help the student understand the topic and apply the knowledge to the conceptual questions I the new Linear A levels and updated GCSEs. With a specific focus on Mark schemes required by the examining board, students learn from the very first lesson what is expected of them in order to achieve top grades and enjoy learning.

Feedback For Koka (5)
Exceptionally experienced, highly motivated and focused tutor who is also approachable. My daughter says she is not afraid to ask for an explanation to be repeated as many times as it takes. Tuition is directed to the exam specification, tailored and focused to enable the individual student progress.
Dr Koka has been of great help to my twins in preparing for their A levels. Her approach is very good and my twins enjoy their lessons with her and their results and understanding in chemistry biology and physics have improved
Perfect tutor for my son. Very quiet, disciplined and has enabled him to become focused and organised in a short time. Highly recommend.
By teaching and utilizing efficient learning techniques, Dr. Karishma enabled me to effectively learn Chemistry A-level in a short period of time. This will also assist me in future independent learning during further education. Dr Karishma`s services are highly recommended!
Dr Koka was core to my son`s success with A level Chemistry. Whilst bright he had done little work and had no notes to work from and didn`t really know how to revise. Dr. Koka took him from there to an A grade which was critical in him securing a place to study Medicine at UCL. I think she helped him with his overall approach to learning (and life!) which has set him up well for the future. We travelled from outside the M25 into London for the lessons but it was worth it. Highly recommended !
