Approved Teacher

My name is Nayim, I am 23 and live in South London, and I work as both a professional tutor and also a teacher in North London. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 2016 and graduated with a MSc from the Autonomous University of Barcelona in Astrophysics and Cosmology in 2018. My professional experience with tutoring began while studying at the University of Cambridge as I partially supported myself through tutoring A-level students in the city and also helping my fellow colleagues in my course. After graduating, I spent a year in Berlin working and volunteering with groups that were in need of people with mathematics and science skills, and it was here that I started to tutor full-time as I fully supported myself through teaching students Mathematics and Physics, mainly at IB, A-level and University level. I also continued full-time tutoring while in Barcelona for a year completing my masters. My students during these two years ranged from ages 12 to 29, while primarily being in 14 to 19 age range. During these two years, I was responsible for: liaising with both prospective students and their parents; coordinating lessons and devising tailored lesson plans for my students based on their abilities and curricula; bridging the gaps between my knowledge of courses in the UK and the courses being taught in Europe; understanding how best to engage and teach my students while also tracking their progress to ensure that they were best prepared for their exams. My hopes for now are to further my teaching abilities and experience while also pursuing my own writing and research interests, so as to become a more full teacher, learner and human.

I have a degree in Engineering Mathematics, and I have worked with teaching for 20 years. I have experience as a kinder garden teacher, primary school teacher and I have tutored at university while I was a student. I am currently a home school mom and arrange STEM workshops for home schoolers. My tutoring experience at university have included helping students who had failed their exams in Advanced Calculus several times get the equivalent of a B/C on the ECTS scale. I have also helped students who were about to drop out of graduate classes, because they were too hard, understand the subject matter and pass with a B on the ECTS scale. I am currently homeschooling my own children aged 9 and 12, and teaching them in all subjects, my son is studying for GCSEs in Maths, English and Biology . I have arranged hands on workshops for home schooled children in various STEM fields - maths, physics, chemistry and programming. I am currently arranging workshops in logic and geometry. I am very patient and believe that establishing a good report with the student is paramount to learning. I believe in finding ways to make the subject matter relevant to the student is motivating. I have training in non-violent communication.

This was at higher levels, as it was in A-level and GCSE Chemistry, with students going on to reach their target grades. Furthermore, I also have experience in online tutoring in all sciences.

After selecting your tutor for your desired material, you can book a lesson right away!

My name is Nayim, I am 23 and live in South London, and I work as both a professional tutor and also a teacher in North London. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 2016 and graduated with a MSc from the Autonomous University of Barcelona in Astrophysics and Cosmology in 2018. My professional experience with tutoring began while studying at the University of Cambridge as I partially supported myself through tutoring A-level students in the city and also helping my fellow colleagues in my course. After graduating, I spent a year in Berlin working and volunteering with groups that were in need of people with mathematics and science skills, and it was here that I started to tutor full-time as I fully supported myself through teaching students Mathematics and Physics, mainly at IB, A-level and University level. I also continued full-time tutoring while in Barcelona for a year completing my masters. My students during these two years ranged from ages 12 to 29, while primarily being in 14 to 19 age range. During these two years, I was responsible for: liaising with both prospective students and their parents; coordinating lessons and devising tailored lesson plans for my students based on their abilities and curricula; bridging the gaps between my knowledge of courses in the UK and the courses being taught in Europe; understanding how best to engage and teach my students while also tracking their progress to ensure that they were best prepared for their exams. My hopes for now are to further my teaching abilities and experience while also pursuing my own writing and research interests, so as to become a more full teacher, learner and human.
