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 (83)
I have been learning Science from Mr. Farid this year and it has been a great experience. He is a very thoughtful teacher who puts a lot of thought into how he presents the material. His lessons were engaging, useful. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in learning Science.
Mr. Farid was very helpful in Chemistry A level and was able to provide answers and explanations on areas that required clarification for my daughter.
Dr Farid is an excellent teacher. I had one session about solubility with him. He explained things in details and logical way so easy to understand. Also he records the session for you which helps when you want to come back again to the lesson. I recommend him as a tutor!
Farid has only been tutoring my daughter A-Level Maths for over 2 months now, and she has already made amazing progress. He not only teaches her what she needs to know, but also much more beyond that. He knows math like the back of his hand, any question she asks, he is able to answer. They connected well from day 1 and with every lesson, her confidence is boosted. I would highly recommend Farid!
Farid is an excellent tutor that my daughter connected well with! Hes super knowledgeable and was able to answer and explain any of her questions. We will certainly be using him again.
Great tutor. Helped my daughter a lot for the GCSE maths especially with difficult grade 9 questions and she excelled in Maths. Dr Farid is very experienced with the syllabus, lead her through the requirements of the exams and took the strain away! I highly recommend him.
Dr Farid has intensively worked with my son to prepare him for his Math and Physics GCSE equivalent exams over a 3 week period. Following the recent lockdown it became clear that my son had big holes in his knowledge and was in no way prepared. Farid worked with him through the Maths and Physics curriculum addressing specific areas and doing a lot of exam question. All notes made during the Skype sessions as well as the sessions itself were saved so that my son could review these. At time of writing this review my son is still doing his exams but it is obvious that he feels far more confident in his knowledge and is so much better prepared.
Very well explained topics and very helpful with any requests :)
I would strongly recommend him for the tuition.
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 taught my son a level chemistry and Farid taught him very well. Thank you Farid.
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.
Farid is a patient and attentive tutor who takes pride in ensuring his students understand the concepts. He has been increasing my sons confidence in final year A level math, whilst effectively tutoring online. I can recommend Farid for A level math tutoring.
Farid is helping my son to prepare for his GCSE Maths and Physics Exams. He is a very good and knowledgeable tutor.
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.
Great tutor. His explanations have been very easy to follow and subsequently my understanding of physics is improving weekly.
Highly highly recommended. Leaves excellent recordings of the sessions for further revision and is happy to set tasks and review in future sessions. Very knowledgeable about syllabus and requirements and able to challenge knowledge appropriately. 5 stars
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.
My son found Mr Farid`s lessons very useful, he explains in detail, he also provides written notes and recordings of the lessons which are very useful. My son is very satisfied with the level of tuition he is receiving.
I just want to say that I would recommend him HIGHLY.
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.
Flexible with lesson times. Clear and focused with excellent understanding of the work required. This seems to be his full time occupation- he`s definitely a professional. Swopped a Chemistry lesson for a Maths lesson as required. Thanks Farid!
Farid was very pleasant, knowledgeable and explained things clearly, we wouldn`t hesitate on recommending him, thank you.
Very profesional, calm and clear. Thank you very much for your help.
Good tutor, thank you :)
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.
Farid has been an excellent tutor. He is well versed in chemistry, physics and mathematics and has an easy style that makes the material very understandable. He also provides the option to video record the sessions so students can review them at a later time, as well as being available to answer specific questions. We highly recommend Farid.
Dr Farid is a good tutor but having Chemistery lesson twice a week its very pricey
Dr. Farid is a very professional, knowledgeable, and punctual tutor, my daughter found watching the recording of the lessons very useful
Farid did some GCSE Chemistry tuition with my son. He did a great job of spotting gaps in my son`s understanding, and of focusing sessions on fixing these gaps. By providing a recording of each online tutorial and detailed notes, he also enable my son to consolidate his learning and understanding after each session which was much appreciated. Very professional, organised and focused tuition. Thank you.
Farid is a very motivated and organized chemistry tutor. My daughter finds the tutoring very helpful and easy to understand. I would recommend Farid to anyone who needs to have their confidence boosted, and needs a friendly and highly qualified tutor.
My son started sessions with Farid few weeks ago for his A level subjects namely Maths, Physics and Chemistry few weeks ago. I must say that that has been my best decision so far as it has increased my son`s confidence in these subjects. His homework quality has improved so his exam performance. I will not have any hesitation in recommending him .
Dr Farid is a brilliant tutor with a consolidated teaching experience and consistent positive results among his students. My son really appreciated his approach and his huge competence
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.
