He tutors students for 11+ entrance exams – covering all aspects (Mathematics, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning). He tutors Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Computer Science to GCSE level, and Mathematics and Physics to A level. He has taught all exam Boards (Edexcel, AQA and OCR) across most of these subjects.
Tariq works with students to develop tailored revision plans, works with them through the curriculum contents, sets and marks past papers and spends time on exam technique.
Parents often hire Tariq not only to raise the level of their child’s academic understanding but also to reinstil the self-confidence that is a prerequisite both for strong short-term exam performance and for self-motivated learning throughout subsequent studies at sixth form, university and indeed in later life. Tariq firmly believes that establishing a rapport with the student, tailoring the nature and pace of learning to the student, and adopting an engaging and encouraging style are ingredients equally as important as the technical tutoring of the specific subject matter.
As a father of three daughters and a former user of tutors himself, Tariq viscerally understands the parental angst that a child’s academic difficulties can often provoke. He alleviates this as much as possible by quickly diagnosing and agreeing a study plan and by providing parents with regular, structured feedback on progress and priorities.
Aside from tutoring, Tariq is a freelance writer for AI companies (you can read some of his perspectives at www.navigate-ai.com) and fritters away the rest of his time on tennis courts across South London.
