My Personality

My personality is a more mindful, creative, result-orientated, traditional, productive approach.I enjoy reading, going out, travelling, pool, tennis, cricket, football, games, chess. I understand many children enjoy playing chess so I can relate about the chess well with my students and can help them understood how to play which can help them improve their knowledge and they will also enjoy that. As many children like playing chess but they didn't know how to play.

My Experience

I started my teaching career 12 years ago, and currently I teach Functional Skills (English, Maths and ICT up to level 2) full time in Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham College. I like to help successful students to become successful adults. I am a qualified teacher and coach and rather flexible with lesson content and delivery, bringing fresh ideas to engage students at a good pace.

My Format of Lessons, Teaching Style and Engagement with Students


I conduct my lessons on a one to one basis, however if I am to conduct a group class, I would prefer to teach English from Primary to GCSE Level.

I seek to provide the best learning experience as I strongly believe that every lesson should provide value. I work to identify learning needs and build around this with a range of resources. I am also proficient with suggesting revision techniques, aiding students with homework/coursework and can assist pupils with grasping 11+ content in manageable chunks. I Work to their strengths and focus on their weaknesses. I also help to develop expectations together and give praise where it’s deserved. Also by sharing information with them.

My Success Stories

Many parents of children who I have tutored through Tutors4Berkshire would willingly provide a reference to say their child’s confidence has improved and more. One of my Tutees called Adam was a D grade but let’s see his results on GCSEs day.
