An outstanding Grammar High school Maths teacher, I teach Maths up to A-Levels and beyond and have been teaching for 10 years now.
I am a fully qualified Maths Teacher (QTS) registered with UK National College of Teaching and Leadership. I work in an outstandingly high achieving Grammar school near London.
So far I have tutored over 100 students on a 1-1 basis in the past 7 years alone. This is over 4000 hours of tutoring (40 weeks for each student a year X 100 students = 4000 hours)!
Moreover, I work as a Grammar school teacher and I am required to deliver outstanding lessons in accordance with the OFSTED Framework. Hence I have an accurate and in-depth knowledge of the most recent syllabus changes and the exam boards. That combined with my daily touch of solid Maths puts myself in a very strong position to very quickly and thoroughly assess the educational needs of a student and then build upon their strengths. My lessons are Laser sharp and objective oriented wherein I intend to achieve a very concrete goal at the end of each of my tutoring sessions.
Teaching Pedagogy: The vast majority of One-2-One tutors simply turn-up-and-teach without adequate preparation. Maths is mostly about understanding, and less about throw up facts. A tutor gets ONE CHANCE to impart understanding in a clear and coherent way. Not having prepared and risking an incomplete, confused or incoherent explanation confuses the student, rather than build their confidence.
Regular feedback and homework: Most tutors either set no homework at all or thoughtlessly set exercises from a textbook containing inappropriate questions. My homework is specifically written to complement the lesson, containing some questions designed for routine practice and some questions designed to challenge the student encouraging them to think and to develop their logical capacity.
Exam Practice: I give students plenty of past paper practice but only at the right time, once they have a deep understanding of all of the individual topics within the syllabus. Far too many tutors use exam papers to teach from, which means they are setting papers when the student isnt ready: The upshot of that is the students scores fluctuate wildly and their confidence is destroyed.
The lessons are invigorating, inspirational and cutting edge as I keep a very thorough hold on my subject.

Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: Over 10 years of private tutoring.
Including 11+, 13+, GCSE, IGCSE, IB and A Level Maths.
With this immense experience, I have developed an approach which is very simple. I make the lessons fun and engaging. I try to promote interest in the subject so learning Maths becomes fun and an ongoing natural process. Students take this into the school environment and start seeing the results immediately. This reduces the burden from Maths and hence my students can focus on other subjects and achieve well holistically. (Its not about getting an A* just in Maths. I know that!!)
I am very confident that my charges are excellent value for money due to the fact that I have delivered outstanding results for my students. Please do not take my word for it. I have many satisfied parents who you can contact before contracting my services. My past students and their parents have often said that they cannot thank me enough for how much I have changed their career possibilities with those A/A* grades in Maths.
In short, I am the Maths A* Specialist.

Mr Patel is a fantastic tutor. He was professional yet flexible. We were able to discuss all the requirements over first telephone call and Mr Patel suggested us the timetable accordingly.
After the first lesson, we were very happy with how it was taught. Mr Patel is very empathetic and understands the needs very well. He provides challenging work and I found the lessons very inspirational.
Greatly enjoys his ongoing lessons.
Highly recommended tutor.
