My Approach to Private Tuition
I do not adopt a ‘one size fits all’ approach; I teach each student as an individual: find out what motivates them and what scares them. Thus, I can work with the students to ensure they fulfil their maximum potential and that they learn using the techniques and methods that are most effective for them.
My video Introduction
“Mohammed is a fantastic tutor – he really helped our daughter understand her subjects better, and his finding each individual student’s pressure points is excellent”
“Mohammed worked tirelessly in helping my son prepare for Oxford. From personal statements to additional reading, and exam prep to mock interviews, Mohammed was always there for us and Tim is having a great time at Oxford. We couldn’t have done it without you!”
“Thank you Mohammed, for preparing our son for his exams. He has been offered a place at Eton, Westminster and Winchester!”
“Mohammed’s clear understanding of cultural differences and sensitivities allowed him to traverse difficult barriers that other tutors experienced with our son. Mohammed understands our culture and the importance of education and school grades, and helped Zhi-Wei bump up his results significantly!”
“Engaging Mohammed to teach Russian as a new language to Max and Olivia was the best decision we made. Every headmaster and teacher loves that they are learning a new language in their spare time – especially such a cool one!”
“Mohammed really helped me master my grip of the English language. As a complete beginner, I felt I was facing Everest, but Mohammed helped me scale new heights”
“Mohammed’s weekly lessons with our children are invaluable. Their Arabic is improving rapidly and their friends at school are jealous of this additional skill that Mohammed is teaching them!”
“I cannot recommend Mohammed highly enough. Two years ago he really helped me figure out my career path and helped me with my CV and motivation letters. Now he just helped me with my applications to business school and I’m off to start my MBA at Harvard next year. Thanks a million!”
I speak 6 languages (English, Arabic, French, Russian, Urdu, Hindi) and have lived in Damascus (2007), Russia (2008), Singapore (2015), France (2015) and travelled to over 57 countries worldwide. I play camel polo in my spare time, and in 2014, the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan (Karim Massimov) invited me to visit him in Astana to deliver a presentation on the future of the global economy!
