Information about Farid

I studied maths, chemistry and physics with a degree in Chemical Engineering at Imperial college plus MSc and PhD. I have always taught even when still at University. I have over 30 years 1000+ hours experience tutoring in maths, physics and chemistry at GCSE and A/AS Levels. I have a valid DBS. I normally tutor face to face from my home in Hampton (near the open air swimming pool) but now we had to switch to1-2-1 online tuition using Skype. My students receive a video recording of the session to view and keep and a copy of the notes ( solutions) I make while we are talking. I will be happy to teach you get very good understanding and end up with excellent grades. I like to help others who can`t visit me via on line tuition, its easy to set up and just as effective. I am driven by the students` questions, If I don`t know (rarely) or can`t recall an answer, I promise to clarify by the next session or text the solution to student. I bring my skills of teaching at university and in the city to my private students.

Availability: Mornings, Afternoons,Evenings and weekend but flexible.
In general I tutor weekdays from 10am to 8pm and weekends from 9am to 4pm.

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: Over 30 years. I have experienced many syllabuses including IB

Our son improved his confidence and understanding in chemistry since he started the tutoring sessions. Farid sends a recording of the sessions afterwards, which makes it easier for our son to review more difficult topics if needed.

Dr Farid is very competent and knowledgeable teacher (my DC says that Dr Farid knows everything). My DC is enjoying every single session and he doesn`t wish the session to end (although he didn`t agree at first to a private tutor); his knowledge definitely has improved in very short period and he became more confident now. I will highly recommend Dr Farid, he deserves more than 5 stars

Farid is one of the best tutors I have had for Chemistry, Physics and Maths. His in-depth knowledge across these three disciplines is remarkable. He is always happy to help and will be able to answer any question you have. I also have found the fact the lessons are recorded as invaluable. I recommend Farid to anyone, as he is one of the best tutors out there.

My son has recently started taking A Level physics lessons with Farid and find the support very useful. He is very knowledgeable and explanations have been very easy to follow. The recordings are shared after the lesson which are very useful to go back to at a later point if need be. Overall, the support is really helping boost my son`s confidence in the subject and he is enjoying the subject more than before. We`d highly recommend Farid.

“We find Dr Farid very helpful especially in explaining the questions thoroughly. He would always explain something from the basics to understand the topic and would also relate the topic to real life events. Dr Farid, being himself an expert in Physics and Math, he teaches his students with detail and always gives extra insight to any topic that comes to mind. Recommended for anyone trying to find a helpful expert/teacher for Science subjects.”

My daughter finds Farids’ classes very useful. He clearly explains the themes and answers all her questions in great detail. Farid knows the material inside out and extends his examples to physics sometimes, which my daughter finds fascinating. My daughter likes his teaching style and he keeps her interested in the subject. I would definitely recommend Farid as a great tutor.

Farid is absolutely amazing, always very punctual, very efficient and interact well with children. He is a highly experienced and knowledgeable tutor. Farid can talk about any topics with ease, stooping down to their level making it easier for them to understand even the most difficult topics. We are very happy Farid had some time in his very busy schedule to teach our children and we hope he will continue to do so for a long time.

Dr Farid has been teaching Physics and Chemistry do my daughter who is preparing for her GCSEs in 2021. Dr Farid has been extremely helpful to my daughter learn the topics she had found hard to understand. For example, my daughter was getting confused with chemical calculations and Dr Farid helped her with a proprietary analysis chart that my daughter had not found anywhere online or in any book. The chart made the subject matter very easy to comprehend and she now feels pretty good about the topic. Dr Farid is very experienced and can make the subject easy to understand as well as enjoyable to learn. He is also very flexible and can cover Physics, Chemistry and Maths at any point in time. We are very happy that he has been there to help my daughter.

Dr Farid has good knowledge of the subject however the lesson did not meet the expectation of the student.Hence we did not continue with the lessons

Tutors Response :

Dear Ananya, I am sorry the lesson was not to Annika`s expectations. We had problems with your sound system. I couldn`t make out what she was saying and I presume she couldn`t hear clearly what I was explaining. So the problem was in communication. You are welcome to find another tutor but if the sound system does not improve you will have the same problem. As I had a student before you and another after you the sound problem is from your end.
I wish you all the best in her studies and if you want my help you will be welcomed back. Kind regards Farid.
