I am a professional, full-time private tutor based in London specialising (up to Degree level) in Economics, Business Studies and Accountancy, as well as Mathematics (up to GCSE level). My aspiration is to be recognised as one of UKs super tutors in my chosen subject areas.
I have over 4 years of private tutoring experience and over 6 years of working in London as a Business Consultant within Financial Services sector. I have a strong passion for tutoring and I combine this passion with my work experience and professionalism. This has led me to take-up private tutoring on a full-time basis, in place of a lucrative banking career.
Having applied to elite UK universities at undergraduate and graduate levels in the past, I am also able to offer guidance with respect to university applications, personal statements and course selection. Additionally, I can also provide advice in relation to career development in the fields of business consulting, finance, audit and accountancy.
I believe personalised and result-driven approaches are essential ingredients for effective tutoring. I believe a good tutor is adaptable to both exam-oriented tutoring and tutoring for the sake of gaining knowledge.
My tutoring strengths include:
Focus on getting the concepts right
Emphasis on past-papers
Patience and simplified explanations
Subject matter expertise
My tutoring qualifications include:
Postgraduate Diploma in Information Systems Auditing (ISACA)
Chartered Accountant (ICAEW)
Diploma in Business Analytics (Wharton Business School)
Certificate in Business Innovation (Harvard Business School)
Qualified Member (British Mensa, The High IQ Society)
MSc in International Political Economy (London School of Economics)
BSc in Economics (University of Warwick)
Straight 5 A*s in A Levels (Economics, Maths, Business, Urdu, Accounts)
Straight 8 A*s in GCSEs (Add Maths, English, Commerce, Islamic Studies)
My past corporate experiences include:
Assistant Vice President - Royal Bank of Scotland Group (London)
Manager - Deloitte LLP (London)
Senior Consultant - Deloitte LLP (London)
Consultant - Deloitte LLP (London)
Analyst - United Nations (Bangkok)
Availability: I am based in London and have taken up private tutoring as a profession. Therefore, I am available throughout the day for full academic year. I am able to drive to my clients and can also tutor from my home and various public places including public libraries. I also have access to some exclusive spots, by means of membership, that I use for tutoring my clients. These include:
Landsdowne Club (Mayfair, London)
The National Liberal Club (Whitehall, London)
Chartered Accountants Hall (Moorgate, London)
David Lloyd Health Centres (throughout London)
I also tutor online and my past online tutoring clients include students in the UK and abroad. I use digital classroom technology with digital pen to deliver my lessons in addition to webcam contact so that the student can also see on screen what I write on paper.
The internet speed I have is 100 MB per second which is one of the fastest speeds available in this day and age for non-corporate use. I usually use Skype as it allows screen-share and, if the student requires, I share the taken-down lesson notes at the end. The digital pen I use is like a normal pen but such that it allows me to display on screen whatever I write on a normal notepad.
Finally, given I have worked in London as a Business Consultant for over 6 years, a job in which I have been accustomed to communicating via digital channels, I have experienced how benefits of remote communication can be obtained.
Willing to travel: 50 miles
Experience: Over 4 years of private tutoring experience. Over 6 years of professional experience of working as a Business Consultant in the City of London within Financial Services sector. Some of my past clients with their written testimonials are listed below:
Ms. R BA Business Studies Student from University of London
Haris was my tutor for about 6 weeks. He is very keen and dedicated in his job. He explains the concepts very clearly and succinctly. He was very patient with me as English was not my first language. There were days when I hated the subject but Haris encouraged me and helped me to utilise my abilities to their fullest. He is very efficient when it comes to his reaching his aims and always seeks his hardest to achieve the targets. I strongly recommend Haris to all my friends and family members.
Mr. H A Level Economics Student from Cambridge Examinations Board
Haris tutored me in the subjects of Mathematics, Accounting and Economics, enabling me to score A* grades in all. He also helped me choose the right subject combinations which directly pertain to the career I`m wishing to pursue. I managed to score 13 A* grades at GCSEs due to his guidance. Haris continues to assist me in my university applications and is currently preparing me for admission into the PPE course at Oxford University.
Ms. R MSc Economic Policy Student from University College London
Unlike other tutors, when you explain something it sticks in my head.
Mr. R A Level Economics Student from Edexcel Board
It was a pleasure to be tutored by you. It was extremely helpful. My exam went very well. I felt quite confident with it. I only wish I had called you earlier than I did and maybe started the tuition straight after my January exams. However, the help you gave me in the little time we had was brilliant. Thank you again.
Mr. B Executive MBA Student from Imperial College London
I would like to thank Haris for his professionalism in giving me tuition for an exam in macroeconomics. He has been able in a short period of time to give me some good foundations which enabled me to answer the exam questions confidently. He has been very focused in guiding me through the principles of macroeconomics and I have found his tuitions very effective. This has resulted in the top mark in my exam.
Mr. E A Level Business Studies Student from AQA Board
We are very impressed with Haris. My son gets on very well with Haris.
Mr. C Economics Adult Learner from UK Banking Industry
I thought, in all honesty, you were patient, likeable, kind, and encouraging. I thought you covered the material well and concisely, and, really, I don`t see how what you were offering could have been done any better. It was brilliant.
