Outside tutoring and its related work, you will find me playing Padel, a racket sport most popular in Spanish-speaking countries. I regularly train in Padel with my coach and play the game at a competitive level such as competing in the British Padel Tour.

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:
Emphasis on Past-Papers
Patience & Clear Explanations
Subject Matter Expertise.
Some of my past clients with their written testimonials are listed below:
Ms. R - Business Studies Student from Birkbeck College
`Haris was my tutor for about six 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.`
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.`
Ms. G University Accounting Student from Regents University
You are my trophy tutor!
Mr. B - Executive MBA Student from Imperial College London
