“My son cannot wait for his weekly lessons with Amrou – he’s enjoyed his studies so much more since the lessons began, and the quality of his homework and schoolwork has greatly improved!”
“Asides from his vast knowledge base, Amrou’s enthusiasm for all that he does is perhaps his most suitable attribute to undertake academic tutoring.”
“Amrou’s passion in terms of academics is palpable- his ability to bolster my confidence in the work I had already produced and his faith and encouragement to help me to excel beyond this standard was crucial to my achieving a high 1:1 (first) in my dissertation.”

My Passion And How I Inspire
It has always been my belief that academia is a deeply personal pursuit, and accordingly, my emphasis in teaching is always on the individual at hand – helping each and every student find their own particular voice within a subject (no matter what subject or what level), thus helping build a very strong sense of self-belief when it come to their work.
When it comes to exam preparation, I work on building various strategies and formulas with my students, so that any new or alien question can be approached with confidence and without fear, indeed, with determination and excitement. I ask my students a lot of challenging questions as opposed to simply “telling them” information, so that they are always thinking and figuring out problems for themselves. I like to work my students hard.
Above all, it is my aim to imbue a love and passion for learning and education, and to encourage a strong sense of excitement and pride when it comes to work.
