Information about Idnam
I am a friendly motivated person who is committed to achieving the best for my pupils. I have over 11 years teaching experience in secondary education and have been giving private home tuition for a number of years. Currently I am teaching in an International College as a Chemistry specialist at GCSE/A-level aswell as an experienced examiner. I believe it is necessary to develop an understanding of my pupils learning styles as it is important to adapt and use teaching strategies that are best suited to the pupils learning needs with a focus on developing understanding and exam oriented approach leading to better grades. Initial assessments are used to assess pupils understanding and knowledge of subject matter as well as a discussion of their needs. I aim to make each session enjoyable and use an active teaching approach so that pupils are expected to actively participate and contribute to their own learning and understanding, therefore making it enjoyable and also more importantly memorable. Each lesson is tailored to pupils learning needs and generally involves discussion of current ideas and misconceptions, one-to-one teaching, discussion of key concepts, questioning and formal/informal assessment so that understanding and confidence is increased. Each lesson is accompanied with learning material/booklets so that the pupil can reinforce their learning and is equipped for revision (PowerPoint, Revision notes and assessments in form of exam papers/Q specific to the topic taught). My main priority is that understanding and applying knowledge is established at the end of each session. I use formal as well as other forms of assessment to ensure that the pupil has grasped an indept knowledge of the topic. I have a vast collection of teaching materials which I use as supportive tools to aid understanding and am more than happy to give to my pupils. I take every opportunity to make myself available to my pupils via email so to provide them with all the support they need in order to succeed. I am always in discussion with parents/guardians giving them regular feedback on individual lessons and believe that this collaboration is vital. This approach to home tuition has been very successful and beneficial for both my pupils and myself. I have to date a successful record helping pupils to achieve and exceed their target grades and would relish the opportunity to help you also succeed.

Feedback For Idnam (6)
Mr. Idnan is teaching my son for A level Chemistry for the last one year. He is so sincere,punctual and well versed in the subject that my son scored good grade in his internal assessment even though he is new to the country and the syllabus.
I cannot give a review due to change in circumstances.
Fantastic tutor. My son has seen his A Level Chemistry predicted grade improve drastically under Idnams tutorship. Idnam is reliable and always turns up when he says he will. His preparation is second to none, and arrives at sessions extremely well prepared. Hell set additional work which hell then mark & provide feedback on. Idnam delivers a great balance between teaching a topic (explaining more complex areas very clearly), and setting exam practice questions. Idnams keen to seek feedback on the work he sets, which helps to ensure key areas/topics have been understood. Id definitely recommend.
Mr Idnam is an excellent tutor for my son. The lessons are engaging and the frequent feedback is very helpful. We highly recommend this tutor.
Idnam is very reliable and provides current advice
