About Dr Arjun

I believe my role as a tutor is to provide my students with individual assistance and support with their problems, and equally importantly, to try and ignite their interest in studying. I try and engage my students, to stimulate them, while still making them feel comfortable around me. It is essential that students not only get good grades, but also understand concepts, learn to think mathematically and solve problems themselves.

Rather than just showing them how to solve problems, I encourage students to think and work through things themselves, while only gently prodding them in the right direction. This tends to greatly enhance their knowledge and self-confidence, and many are surprised at how well they do.

About Dr Claire
  • Attended:
  • Cardiff University
  • University of Oxford

I am an erudite and very capable educator with over 10 years of teaching experience in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics at both GCSE-level and A-level.

I gained my DPhil in Molecular Biochemistry and Chemical Biology from the University of Oxford. During my DPhil I published first-author papers in highly-regarded journals and filed a patent on my research. I also gave undergraduate tutorials and I was an admissions interviewer in the Biochemistry department for three years.

I work full-time as a private tutor and educational consultant. I am highly organized and plan my lessons thoroughly to ensure my students gain in both knowledge and confidence. I also ensure my students develop good examination technique with plenty of practice answering exam-style questions. I am an Assessment Specialist with both CIE and OCR and thus have an excellent understanding of the examination process.

About Ross
  • Attended:
  • Birkbeck College (University of London)
  • University of Cambridge
  • GMAC

I have been a professional tutor since 2006, during which time I have prepared hundreds of students for the GMAT, GRE, SAT, ACT, ISEE and SSAT exams. Outside of tutoring I am a filmmaker and writer, and my articles appear regularly in American and British magazines.

One of the main difficulties I see with my students is that they become overwhelmed by what they have to learn. This is normally caused by the concepts seeming too difficult or them feeling that there is too much material to cover. I always try to remove this anxiety which allows them in time to see the task through a different lens and to more importantly see their own abilities differently. I help them to realise that they actually possess the skills they need to succeed.
