Zak is an enthusiastic tutor with four years of experience delivering tailored lessons in an engaging and enjoyable way. Through one-on-one tutoring he builds on his student’s strengths, deploying a variety of teaching methods to improve confidence, further knowledge and boost engagement.
Zak achieved a First Class degree in Physics from UCL with a year spent at the University of Washington. He is now pursuing a Master’s degree in Computational Chemistry. In high school he achieved A*’s in Further Maths, Maths and A in Physics and Chemistry. He also obtained gold medals for UKMT Senior Maths Challenge and AS British Physics Olympiad.
Zak tutors 11+, GCSE and A-level Mathematics and Sciences, he also provides help with UCAS applications including MAT and CSAT. He believes the key to grasping ideas quickly is to practise problems while encouraging independent thinking. This allows the concept to become embedded in a way that learning by rote cannot.
Zak is also an avid musician, he has performed piano concertos with professional orchestras and sung jazz at the Adelphi Theatre. He is also a freelance photographer.
“My son got a scholarship (we found out today), so we are very grateful for all Emmanuel did. My son really enjoyed the tutorials; they gave him confidence and polished his exam technique.”
Tom Fenton is a marvellous tutor, striking a perfect balance of erudition, encouragement, judicious pressure, kindness and humour. His work with my daughter produced stellar results in the form of three scholarships; I can’t recommend him too highly.
