Information about Dipak
I am a Mathematics and Statistics Honours Graduate (BSc), with an MA in Educational Management and of course, PGCE and Chartered London Teacher Status (achieved by only a few teachers). I have a track record of constant outstanding success for all the students in my care, both as a teacher and tutor. I have taught the whole ability and age range (11-18) and at university level.
I make maths learning fun and enjoyable. You will definitely feel a sense of progress and achievement at the end of every session. You will be `WOWED`, once you realise how maths can be `demystified` to help in your learning and understanding. I use the latest specifications to ensure effective tutoring.
I only use the best relevant resources : worksheets, powerpoints, past papers, interactive as well as puzzles and games tailored to each student`s needs. I offer both face to face and online tutoring.
Each session will have a clear aim with built in assessments to secure your full understanding of the work. I have access to a vast array of exam and revision papers so you will always be well prepared for internal assessments and external examinations.
I know how important it is to enrol early and thereby be in control of your workload and demands on your time which is KEY to a successful outcome.
Please also refer to `feedback` section on tutor hunt - after all, students and parents are the best judge of their tutors.

Availability: Most days of the week, day time or evening, face to face and online.
I am also available to support (not charged !) outside formal sessions - invaluable as not many will offer this.

Feedback For Dipak (11)
Dipak has done a brilliant job by completely changing my sons perception of maths. He used to feel very stressed about it, but now feels: Maths is cool!. Amazing transformation. Thank you
I could not ask for more from a tutor; Dipak checks all the boxes. He has years of experience in teaching, and it`s self evident in his sessions, and he`s a fantastic person. He`s very perceptive. It does not take him long to figure out a student`s ability level and the way they think about mathematics questions, and he adjusts his teaching accordingly. I don`t know how he does it, it`s probably thanks to his experience, but either way I am happy.
Dip is a great help to my son. He is very clear and explains everything very well and puts a great deal of detail into his lessons. My son is really enjoying his sessions and is finding them a great support for his year 9 maths.
I find that Dipak takes the time to go over questions and topics until I 100% understand them ,
He has really helped me with my maths so far and would definitely recommend him!
Dipak is vert experienced and very good teacher, calms the student and make it easier for them...
Dipak was a brilliant Maths tutor for my son. I would heartily recommend him to anyone
Dip has a very calm and easy approach, I learn very fast and understand his method of teaching. His constant encouragement gives me the confidence and the ability to do better. I have not studied Maths since 23 years ago and I have already achieved an A* and B- on exams and assignment in the last 2 months!! Mostly thanks to Dip! I am ever so grateful for him!
Delighted to report that after a year`s tutoring with Dip my son has achieved an A at GCSE having been predicted a D in Year 10!!! Very grateful!
Our daughter has recently begun sessions with Dipak. He has spent time discussing her prior knowledge and assessing gaps in her knowledge. She thinks he is very understanding and listens carefully to her questions. We found that Dipak was very helpful organising lessons and we hope that she will progress well with him over the next year.
An excellent tutor - my daughter was really struggling with AS maths. Results still to come but she was able to complete all 3 AS papers with confidence. Emily says he`s a `legend` and now plans to do the full A level - will be carrying on with Dipak. Would thoroughly recommend.
My son and I have been delighted to find such a good tutor. My son says his knowledge and understanding of maths has improved enormously in a short time. Dip is a patient and concerned tutor who has shown that he is interested in the progress of his pupils.
