Private Tutor for 11+ and Mathematics
With its emphasis on teaching pupils to solve problems, Singapore Maths is a highly effective way to teach maths based on research and evidence.
We build a students’ mathematical fluency without the need for rote learning by introducing new concepts using a pictorial abstract approach.
Students are guided towards building meaning in order to learn diagrammatic concepts and skills to solve maths problems, as opposed to rote memorisation of rules and formulas.
Our pupils learn to think mathematically as opposed to reciting formulas they don’t understand. They are taught mental strategies to solve problems such as drawing a bar model.
Close attention is given to the development of presentation skills. Students are shown how to draw diagrams and working out neatly and concisely.
Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.
- Albert Einstein
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Karim is an excellent tutor and really helped my daughter for 11 plus exams. He covered maths, verbal reasoning and techniques for common entrance examinations.
His methods are unique and provide an all round approach rather than the standard tutoring techniques. His exam skills technique course was very useful for my daughter. She is presently at North London Collegiate school. My daughter liked his calm and patient approach to teaching and he was always available for feedback.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the guidance and support that you have given Alisha. Having spoken to her, she feels that the sessions were extremely beneficial and now feels better equipped for the exams that follow. Thank you for sharing all the strategies and techniques that will enable her to complete her exams to the best of her ability.
Karim is a driven, organised tutor who seems to develop inspiring relationships with his students and his talent for teaching simple concepts as well as more advanced topics are truly superior. He accomplishes all these tasks with great initiative and with a positive attitude. I would highly recommend Karim without reservation.
