(1) Tutoring Approach
- Discuss with the student where they feel they need most help.
- Establish a plan of action that is achievable, enjoyable and engaging.
- Build a rapport with the student that is both encouraging and firm.
- Diagnosing weaknesses through regular homework and investing time in smoothing out problems.
- Placing emphasis on sustainable change in attitude through the affirmations that come from improved performance.

(2)Revision Technique
- Specialise in summarising entire topics with flow diagrams allowing students to easily visualise ideas when faced with an exam question.
- Emphasis on dissecting past exam questions and focusing on reasons for anxiety and stress.
- Taking away the sting of making mistakes by using them as learning tools.
- Encouraging students to record their mistakes, resulting in a bespoke journal of their errors. This is instrumental in instilling the confidence required to excel in exam conditions.
- Setting intense past exam practice, in timed conditions to mimic the exam scenario as much as possible.

(3) Exam Technique
- Making sure student enter the exam aware of their likely mistakes and how to resolve them using their journal.
- Develop a systematic approach to extracting information from the question and methodically constructing a solution.
- Instil the habit of not judging a question by it`s size in order to avoid preconceived notions of difficulty.
- Creating a sense of familiarity and comfort with the exam format to almost anticipate questions.
- Demonstrating the possibility of silly mistakes through examples and encouraging them to go over their paper thoroughly.

TESTIMONIAL (Long term Client):
"I first engaged Nidhi as a tutor for our son in Y11 to assist him with his GCSE Maths studies. She helped him get a high A-Grade when he had been targeted by his school for a low B-Grade at GCSE. Despite the school concluding at the start of Year 12 that he “had neither the aptitude nor understanding to be taking this course”, encouraged by Nidhi, he stuck with Maths for AS & A2 levels & Nidhi tutored him throughout.

He was targeted by his school to get a D-Grade at the beginning of Year 12, yet with Nidhi’s support, he went on to achieve an Astar in his A2 Maths this summer. He also achieved Grade B in Economics & History but thanks to that star, he is now taking a BA(Hons) Degree in Economics at the University of York. It should be noted that he was one of only 6 students at his school to achieve Astar in Maths. Nidhi has also tutored our second son since Y12. Having been targeted by the school to achieve a B-Grade at AS Maths, he achieved 100% in all of his AS units – the only one to do so in his school. The school have now (unsurprisingly) predicted that he will get an Astar in his A2 exams next summer. He plans to read Chemistry at university in 2014 and has already received offers to study at the Universities of Bristol, York,
Warwick, Sheffield & Southampton.

Nidhi also tutors our fourth son having started in Y9 and now continuing into Y10 GCSE. If it is relevant, all of our sons have attended St Clement Danes School, Chorleywood.

I cannot recommend Nidhi as a teacher more highly. She is a woman with a passion for tutoring & great teaching skills, the like of which I have never come across before or since. We have engaged other tutors but none have ever come close to Nidhi.

She has taken 3 quite ordinary students who had each felt that they couldn’t do Maths and encouraged them to understand the subject in such depth that two of them have had the confidence to pursue university degrees which have a high level of dependency on Maths & the third is looking already towards taking it at A-Level.
As the saying goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating!

Information about Nidhi

After a string of students seeking my help and improving drastically, the head of Maths has personally vouched for my skills and tutoring technique. This recognition with eight years of experience tutoring in North West London has helped me established myself as a top tutor with a vast network of students.

Head of Maths
“Thank you so much for all the work you did with HL. I taught him AS and A2 Maths. He began as a weaker student but ended up with an Astar at A2. This was largely due to your tutoring methods – i.e. teaching H a topic BEFORE I did, so that my lessons were consolidating knowledge and methods already practised. H benefitted so much from this prep. His questions in class were always at a deeper level than those students who were seeing the topic for the first time. I will be delighted to recommend your services to any A Level Maths student who asks for a tutor.”

Throughout my studies, I have never achieved lower than an A in any subject and I topped the class in A Level Maths, German and Biology. This pure dedication to excel as a student taught me first hand, the essential qualities and habits that ensure academic success. My passion is to encourage and nurture this work ethic in my students.

In the last eight years, I have tutored over a hundred students spanning KS3, GCSE, IGCSE and A Level. My students have improved by more than two grades on average. My 100% rating from past clients is a direct consequence of this.

Below are some more testimonials and actual results achieved by my students.
