My Experience

I have been working as a full time professional science tutor with some of the top tutor agencies in London since September 2013. I have also previously tutored university level students since 2010. Since 2013 I have tutored just over 2500 hours. My extensive experience as a tutor has enabled me to become familiar with common pitfalls students struggle with.  I have experience in tutoring from age 5 up to University level. I work particularly well within the age range age 11-16. I have successfully helped many students with 13+ entrance examinations and GCSE/IGCSE examinations I am also familiar with Edexcel, OCR and AQA exam boards. I enjoy making a difference and I feel the key ingredient to tutoring is connecting with the student, something I am particularly good at.

My Approach to Private Tuition

My teaching style is very versatile and tailored to the individual. I have worked with many students and am naturally quite intuitive so I tend to take a holistic approach with my tutees. I would describe myself as a creative scientist who enjoys thinking outside of the box and bringing innovative ideas to my tutorial sessions. I encourage students to enjoy learning whether it means taking a more gentle approach or really stretching and challenging the student.

My approach to residential tuition is very similar to my regular tutoring style which is very student-centred. I enjoy making sessions interesting and stimulating the tutee. From my experience I feel the key to making any residential tuition successful is to be as organised as possible due to the short but intensive tuition takes place. I am quite thorough with my preparation. I often end up being much more than a tutor and I almost end up becoming “one of the family”. On several occasions I have even taught my students Indian dance routines as an extracurricular activity.

“Parveen clicked with the whole family straight away during her residential tuition placement”

“My daughter’s confidence in science increased dramatically over the two weeks she was tutored intensively by Parveen”

“Parveen really knows how to enthuse a student and make a dramatic difference in a short amount of time”
