Physics & Maths Tutor; Oxford graduate and Qualified

After graduating from Oxford University with a physics degree, I have completed a PGCE course at King's College London. I have always enjoyed working with young people and passing my knowledge to others to see them improve, which are the reasons behind my desire to teach.

I have been tutoring physics and maths at levels ranging from GCSEs to undergraduate degrees for over five years.

By forming good relations with my students and explaining the required concepts clearly, I manage to keep them interested in the subjects. Having achieved top grades in A-levels myself, I am able to guide my students to achieve exam success. My priority about tutoring is tailoring each of my lessons according to individual students, which is the key aspect of one-to-one tutoring.

Apart from tutoring, I am a committed tennis player. I have competed at the national level as a junior and also played for university teams. I am also a qualified tennis coach.

Exceptional tutor

Gorkem has taught my son A-Level Physics and Maths and helped him obtain an A grade in both subjects. I would like to say that he is a very good tutor and is very knowledgeable in his topics. I am very impressed by his teaching quality and his ability to adjust the pace of the lesson to suit my sons needs. I cannot recommend Gorkem enough, he is an exceptional tutor.

Fantastic Teacher!

A year or so back my son had no intention and we had no hope in him going to university, due to terrible (A/S) results; now (a year after) he has grades which meet Oxbridge entry requirements...thanks to Gorkem. Moreover, not only he boosted my sons grades he assisted him with his personal statement and UCAS application confirming everything was completed to perfection.
Gorkem is highly enthused and experienced teacher; he has mastered various teaching methods to overcome difficulties that my son had with curricular mathematics & physics.
Subject:
Physics (AS)
Outcome:
My son achieved A* in Maths (A-level) and A in Physics (A/S). He applied for Mechanical Engineering (Meng) and his university choices are as follows; Oxford, Imperial, UCL, Bristol and Nottingham.

Excellent Tutor

Gorkem has been working in our tuition centre for a year and he is one of our valuable team members who constantly delivers all expectations. He has been providing A-Level Maths and Physics lessons to a class size of 2 to 8 students. Gorkem carries full responsibilities of his role, shows interest in his teaching subjects and is willing to go the extra milestone, for example, he is currently assisting some of our students for the Oxbridge admissions exams.
Having known Gorkem throughout this period I can describe him as a dedicated, reliable, knowledgeable and pleasant person to work with and someone who has build a good relationship with his students.

Excellent Tutor

We were looking for a very good Physics tutor to help my daughter revise the entire syllabus and get a high grade in Physics at Standard Level IB. Gorkem was excellent- very flexible and helpful with fitting in timings during the very busy revision period and I am glad to say that my daughter achieved the required grade she needed to make her Cambridge offer.
Outcome:
Grade 6 in IB Physics -Standard level .

Excellent Tutor - highly recommended

Gorkem is an excellent tutor. He is very knowledgeable and could immediately guide my son on any complex problems. He does not just tell my son the steps to solve the problem instead he guides him to think for himself how to solve the problem. Gorkem sets additional homework if you prefer. As my son wanted to achieve high grades he put in the extra effort to do the homework. This additional effort paid off. On the whole, my son gained alot more confidence in his subjects through Gorkem and was able to achieve A grades for the AS subjects. We are continuing to engage Gorkem to help maintain the high standard of performance.

Ableton

Grade A for both subjects

Fantastic teacher, what can I say!

Gorkem is a very kind and supportive tutor! He was very patient listening to all my stupid questions and explaining me the material step by step. After tuitions with him I felt 200% confident even on the hardest topics. Yes, it's possible! Gorkem is also very familiar with the specification, so if anyone is searching for a person to help with model answers - I recommend Gorkem to you. Physics will be cracked to quarks!

I needed a tutor to provide pre-exam support for my daughter in anticipation of her IGCSE Maths and luckily found Gorkem who did a fantastic job. He gave her the confidence she lacked in tackling the harder questions and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
