I tailor my lessons to suit the students unique circumstances, ability and learning objectives. This flexible approach, combined with my engaging and personable character have allowed me to succeed in helping students significantly improve their academic performance and secure entrance to many leading public schools and universities.
Whilst I understand the importance of adhering to a subject's curriculum, I encourage students to study beyond these in order to obtain a varied and wide-ranged understanding of a subject. This helps a student master the subject and to perform well in classwork, homework and exams. I also rely heavily on ensuring students truly understand the material they are taught and try my best to make the lessons enjoyable for the student themselves.

"Having you as my maths and economics tutor has been invaluable and I cannot thank you enough for all the help you provided me. I went from having no prior knowledge of economics to scoring a 90% mark in one of my entrance exams and owe that all to you!"
"Darius, you have been an excellent help for my daughter, and she said she very much enjoyed the tuition sessions with you. She was a high achiever already, but I think the session with you helped give her that edge she needed for the entrance exam. I offer you my greatest thanks."
"Thank you for your support over the holiday period with Alex. It's been a pleasure having you as a teacher and Alex feels much more confident in his own abilities"
"Darius was great, exceptionally able and very competent much better than the tutors at school according to my son. Thank you very much"
“Darius had tutored my son in Economics for a few months and he has been an excellent tutor in the subject. He has deep understanding of the subject and the exam process and is very methodical in his approach towards exam preparation. He helped my son prepare for the 16+ entrance exams for top schools and built up his foundations in Economics very well. My son could qualify for all these schools and we would like to thank Darius for his excellent help and support.”
I recently trekked to the peak of a 6000m mountain in Bolivia, and reached the top during a severe blizzard where the temperatures dropped to around -15 degrees celsius. I was one of only three members of the group of twelve that made it to the top!
