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.

Feedback For Farid (46)
I found my Maths lessons with Farid very valuable, you receive a recorded video of the lessons straight away which is a great resource to have. He is very professional and prompt in communication. He explains complex concepts very well in a simple and easy way to remember. I would definitely recommend him.
Farid started helping our son with his Maths GCSE since early October. He is having weekly skype sessions. Farid is clearly very knowledgeable and proficient about the subject. He is also calm and patient. He is organised, reliable and responds very quickly to my messages outside the lessons. Our son has found the support beneficial and we are hoping this will make a positive impact on his results at school.
Dr. Farid is a good teacher . He teaches my son GCSE Math & Science. He explaining the more than once when my son is confused then he trying to show easy way to understand. We are happy with the tutor & recommended him.
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.
Dr Farid is a fantastic tutor. He has helped simplify and explain complicated physics topics to me. He guided me through difficult topics such Motions & Forces, Electricity, Space and much more. I feel so much more confident in these subject now, all thanks to him! Im very grateful to Dr Farid For all his help and support.
Farid has helped my daughter for more than two months. He can clearly explain the science concept in a clear and easy way. My daughter very much enjoys the way he teaches. Now she is more and more confident in her science.
Farid is a great tutor which I highly recommend. He explains topics clearly and in depth, allowing the student to fully understand the concept before moving on. The materials which he send after the lesson are very useful in further revision to ensure the best possible exam grade is achievable.
Patience and attention to detail . My son is happy with this tutor...he explains concepts well and even goes that extra mile past the hour to explain difficult concepts. Overall we are happy with this tutor and will highly recommend ..
I only had one lesson with him as the Coronavirus cut our lessons short but Farid was very good at explaining everything in detail and when asked he would explain something for me again in a different way to make it more understandable for me.
Dr. Farid amazing teacher he explaining more than once and if you don`t understand he trying to show you easy way to understand. When he finish the idea he explaining he asking if you have any questions. He don`t like you to leave if you don`t understand the lesson. He have lots of easy way to explain and make the lesson more simply. I want say thank to him because he makes science more easy for me. Jian.
Dr Farid is good at explaining concepts in chemistry

Farid is having a very positive impact on my daughter`s studies. He is professional and friendly and is clearly a very experienced teacher. My daughter enjoys his lessons and her confidence in and understanding of GCSE Chemistry has increased considerably since she started having lessons with Farid. I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend him.
Excellent tutor. My daughter is finding him extremely helpful
Farid is an amazing tutor! My son had lost interest in science as he was behind in his classes at school. Farid revived my sons interest just after one session and now he is looking forward to a lesson with Farid every week. Im looking forward to see how his renewed interest affects his school grade, , but we are very happy to have found him.
We have only had a few sessions so too early to say what progress has been made - very friendly and approachable tutor
Farid helped my daughter the weekend before her GSCE physics exam. They went through practice papers reinforcing her knowledge and just being clear on marking schemes. She found him very experienced and able to go at a speed she felt most comfortable. It gave her that extra confidence boost going into the exams.
Farid has been an excellent tutor. My year 9 son is a keen learner but is terribly disorganised. Farid has really helped him focus so he can achieve on his end of year exams. My son enjoys his sessions with Farid, with is of course very important. We are very happy customers.
So far so good.

Dr Farid is teaching my 13 year old daughter GCSE Physics; he makes every lesson interesting, fun and gives examples that help to explain and make topics easier to understand. Dr Farid tests my daughters understanding of a given topic before progressing to the next topic. My daughter has now had 5 lessons and is very happy with Dr Farid teaching.
Farid has been teaching my son in preparation to his GCSE Maths band Further Maths exams. My son is very pleased with Farid`s help and finds him very knowledgeable and his way of teaching very interesting, especially how he puts theory into practice.

I`m really happy with Farid. My daughter has become so confident since her lessons. She always has questions for him and he`s always ready with the answers!
My daughter has so far only had two sessions with Dr Farid. However, she finds he is very helpful and clear in his explanations. Also, he puts the use of the subject into context with every day life which my daughter finds both useful and enlightening.
Farid has been tutoring our daughter for the last 7 weeks in the build up to her GCSE exams. It has boosted her confidence in maths, sciences and computing. We will likely be asking Farid to tutor our son when his time comes. Thank you for all your help at this critical time in our daughters schooling.
My son refers to Dr Farid as the best Chemistry teacher he met on Tutorhunt. My son is very happy about his progression and he is always looking for the next lesson.
Farid is doing an excellent job helping my son prepare for his A level physics exams. They pick different topics to work on and Farid breaks the problems down so that they are easier to understand and solve. I highly recommend Farid as a tutor.

Great teacher and very knowledgeable
Farid has really helped my son with his maths and physics. Son is feeling much more confident as he faces his GCSEs in just over a month. Farid`s tutoring has made a real difference in the marks son has got in practice mocks - all very happy.
