Hi
**IF YOU DON'T SEE A LESSON AVAILABLE PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH ME AND I WILL TRY TO ARRANGE ONE FOR YOU"

I am a Scientist by training and hold a PhD degree. After finishing research I took up a position as a University lecturer and taught college students for a number of years.

I am passionate about teaching and my interest in teaching is a result of passion for the subjects I teach. My teaching method involves invoking the student’s intellectual curiosity in order to keep them engaged. I believe in encouraging students to revise what has been done earlier with them. I also focus a lot of my time on preparing students for the exams. My tutoring is result oriented and has been much appreciated by my previous students. I place particular emphasis on rigour and repetition and make sure I point out the mistakes students commonly make that can cost them valuable marks in the examinations. Listening carefully to pupils, analysing their responses and responding constructively in order to take student’s learning forward are the pivotal stones of my success. I am very patient with students when they don’t understand concepts and encourage them to share their thoughts even when they come up with the wrong answers.

For students that are lagging behind, one-to-one tutoring can boost their confidence and give them a track record of success. For students who are already doing well, my tutoring offers the scope for fine-tuning exam and revision techniques. My tutoring methodology ensure that I can personalize my lesson plan to the abilities of the student. I am able to gauge the level of their understanding, and, more importantly, track down the sources of misunderstanding, and deal with them effectively. I also try and provide students with an alternative approach whenever possible. Sometimes that just be what is required for the students understanding to fall in place. Also, I ask for regular feedback from students, and that helps me tailor my lessons to suits their specific needs. Whatever the end goal, one-to-one tutoring by me offers enormous benefits to students. I have had encouraging responses from the students I have taught in the past as a testament of my effective tutoring methodology.

I provide science and maths tuition(primary, secondary,KS3, KS4, GCSE, A-levels, sixth form) as mentioned above. I SPECIALIZE IN QTS TESTS FOR TRAINEE TEACHERS. I am happy to work with individuals as well as groups.

Great IB Tutor

Many have said that going from a GCSE level to A-Level or the IB is a very big step. However, Charu has made this big step much easier for me. She explains the concepts of topics so that you can easily understand it. This has enabled me to go into more detail with the topic without panicking about not understanding what is being discussed.

She is very prepared with the lessons and caters for different learning speeds which helps cater for all types of students so that they feel comfortable with the lessons.

Charu gives plenty of homework appropriate to the student and what they have discussed in lessons. The homework is very productive and she explains mistakes made and how to correct them so that the same mistakes aren't made again.

Subject:
Biology (IB)
Outcome:
Overall, she is very understandable of the students needs and helps to make them feel comfortable with the subject that they are studying and helps them to understand and well as enjoy it.

Excellent Chemistry Tutor

When I came to Charu at the beginning of year 12, I was working at a grade C and after a few months, I'd noticed a significant improvement and I am now currently working at a grade A. Charu has helped build my confidence in chemistry and has a very calm and detailed approach to teaching. She is a brilliant tutor with a high level of patience and has a very optimistic attitude which has helped me to understand and enjoy the subject more.

Outcome:
My grade in A level chemistry has improved and I now have a higher level of confidence in the subject.

Reference for Charu Gera

My daughter Emily Walford started having a weekly 1:1 sessions with Charu in January of this year. Emily struggled with science but was keen to pass one GCSE in this subject. Emily has thoroughly enjoyed her sessions. Charu makes the subject interesting, explains concepts extremely well, and has given Emily so much more confidence in this subject. I have since recommended Charu to a friend whose son has started GCSE maths tuition with Charu and has found her to be equally good in this subject too.
Subject:
Biology
Outcome:
Added confidence and ability to tackle her GCSE biology this coming June.

So helpful

I started tutoring with Charu after doing badly in my AS biology, since starting the tutoring I have found that my understanding of topics covered is so much better as she explains it in a way that makes sense to me. She is willing to cover whatever topics I require whether it be AS or A2.

Written by Nev D

Exceptional tutor

During my AS Biology I searched near and far for a tutor that was right for me and after having four, I had begun to believe that biology was a subject that just had to be self taught. After a lesson with Charu, it was to my relief I had found someone who could make overwhelming topics very understandable and iron out all the creases in my knowledge. It's easy to be caught out being passive in lessons at school and that's what's great about Charu, she always asks questions that really stretch your understanding of a topic, but in a way that you're never afraid of getting the answer wrong. I would highly recommend her to all.
Subject:
Biology
Outcome:
I've only had Charu for a short time, but I've already become the top contributer in class discussions and hopefully my grade in the summer will reflect that too!
Written by Tyler T

Great biology teacher.

Charu is very good at determining my shortfalls in biology; therefore she is able to work through problems one at time until I have mastered them. she is very good at giving examples and helping me understand work. This has helped me to gain confidence in biology and also improve my grades from "U's" to "C's"', and beyond.
Subject:
Biology
Outcome:
The overall outcome of this has helped me to become more confident in biology and in other subjects, it has also helped me to realise techniques that help me to answer questions and to revise more eff

A great science tutor!

Charu has been my A level Biology and Chemistry tutor for over 2 months now. I really enjoy her lessons and love her enthusiastic style of teaching! She is very thorough, organised and demonstrates a great deal of knowledge in her subjects. I find that her communicative approach whilst teaching is very effective because it ensures that I not only understand the priniciples, but also ask probing questions to enhance my learning.
Subject:
Science
Outcome:
She has really helped to bridge the gap between GCSE and A level science as I embark on my AS studies. I would not hesitate to recommend her as I think she is a wonderful tutor!

Excellent A level Science tutor

I started coming to tutoring with Charu for A2 Biology at the end of September. Realising the hugely positive impact it was having on my understanding and learning, I now also have tutoring for A2 Chemistry. Charu is excellent at teaching both these subjects, and is very thorough. Topics in the A2 syllabus were very confusing and difficult for me to grasp at school, but she relieved all my confusion. I feel extremely confident in the topics I have covered so far, and am very hopeful of achieving the A*s that I have wanted. Something I particularly enjoy in the way she teaches is that she always asks questions not only to make sure that you have understood the topic but also to remove any of your doubts. Charu will also go through exam-style questions alongside her teaching so that we learn to apply our knowledge from the start: for me, it has proved very useful and helpful. Furthermore, going to tutoring with Charu never feels like a chore to me! I love her lessons because she is very enthusiastic, motivating and easy to talk to. A good teacher is someone who not only knows her stuff and is able to teach well, but also loves to teach, is encouraging, committed and passionate. Charu fulfills all of these criteria, and I would recommend her to anybody.

Outstanding A Level Tutor

I found Charu at a time of great need, struggling heavily with my Biology A Level, it was lucky we found her. Her teaching has been better than the 2 years I have received at my own school (4 teachers combined!) A very passionate woman, excellent at giving clear yet concise explanations and successful methods of remembering valuable content. I am very grateful for all of her help and I am certain she will contribute to an improvement from my AS grade last year when I complete my A2 exams this June.

Dr Gera is a wonderful physics and mathematics tutor. She is able to explain topics clearly and take time if you do not fully understand. Unlike my secondary school teachers she teaches me in a way that helps me remember as I can fully understand what we are going through.Dr Gera is also a very warm and welcoming and i would encourage anyone looking for a tutor to sign up to her classes.
