Iftikhar taught both my children at 11+ and GCSE Maths. They benefited from his expertise.
11 Plus
Passed 11+, and achieved top grades in GCSE.

Written by Arsalan R
was tutored during my GCSE year as well as my A-levels by Iftikhar.

At all times I have found Iftikhar to be friendly, professional and extremely helpful. Very rapidly he was able to build a rapport with me and make me feel comfortable but he also maintained a very professional character.

When I first started to see Iftikhar, he was quick to find my strength and weaknesses in all mathematical areas of my concern; he strengthened my strengths and helped me build on my weaknesses. He is familiar with all exam boards and their syllabuses and keeps himself well informed about any changes made within each syllabus. When I first mentioned which exam board I was studying, he was able to suggest which text books and revision books will benefit me the most.

A great attribute of Iftikhar is that he knows many, if not all, the possible ways to work out problems and then teach them to you, if he/you feel that a certain methodology to certain problems is difficult, he is quick to point out a different way to see if that suits you best. This shows that as well as the capability to mould an individual, he is able to adapt himself to that certain individual to get the best possible result.

Another attribute of Iftikhar is that he is very reliable and patient. Firstly he is not shy in offering more of his time to help you if you feel like you need more guidance and secondly he is able to work around your time schedule. This was enormously useful especially during exam times when I really needed his aid in past papers.

Overall, I would highly recommend Iftikhar as he is a great tutor. He is friendly, approachable, motivated and very reliable.

In 3 months, Iftikhar successfully prepared my son for the 11+ examination. He passed with a score of 175/180 for Burnham, 129/136 for Slough Consortium and 120/127 for Reading boys. Therefore as you can see from the above results, Iftikhar tutored him to the best standard to enable him to receive such high marks in the 11+.
11 Plus
Iftikhar taught my son everything needed to be able to pass the exam with flying colours.

Wise Tutor

Written by Mani K
Iftikhar is a highly experienced and knowledgeable tutor. He designed an assessment to benchmark and developed a plan to mature our child's academic capabilities. Iftikhar is a subject matter expert on several subject areas. Our child felt comfortable discussing and clarifying on various topics.
Iftikhar's approach to teaching is well thought out, highly organised and results orientated. I strongly recommend Iftikhar.
11 Plus
A renewed confidence in our child.

Brilliant, genius, and experienced tutor

In the summer holidays 2011, I took my son to Iftikhar for 11+ lessons. Hardly 3 months were left to practice for the 11+ admissions exams. Yet due to the great teaching of Iftikhar, my son got 141/141 marks (100%) for Upton Court Grammar School, 137/141 marks (97.16%) for Burnham Grammar School, and 121/141 marks (85.81%) for Herschel Grammar School. The foundations laid by Iftikhar helped my son to achieve an A* in GCSE Maths in Year 10. Next year, my son will be doing A-Levels in Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Physics. My son's teachers believe that he should apply for a degree at Oxbridge. I would highly recommend Iftikhar for 11+, GCSE Maths, and A-Level Maths tuition.

Tutor for Struggling Students

Written by Mark P
Mr Iftikhar has taught my daughter GCSE maths. When she first went to him, her grades were at E-D level and her general knowledge of maths was underage. As her GCSE exams approached, her grades have improved greatly as she is now aiming for B and A grades in her GCSEs. Mr Iftikhar is a very direct teacher who enjoys sharing his knowledge with his students but also allows them to think for themselves. He makes sure his students fully understand the topics he teaches by explaining it clearly and writing down notes that they can then take home and go over. He encouraged my daughter doing extra work and bringing it in his lessons and he went through it on one to one basis, identified mistakes, and corrected them. Mr Iftikhar is a very good tutor and I can honestly say his lessons have boosted my daughter's confidence and grades in maths. I would fully recommend him to struggling students.
Maths (GCSE)
Her mock exam results went from a D to a C and she is expecting a B in final results

Written by Natasha W
Mr Iftikhar had taught me A-Level Mathematics when I was studying A-Level at Burnham Grammar School. Due to his help and guidance, I achieved overall grade A (85% marks) in my A-Level Mathematics. Later on, I graduated from King's College London.
Mr Iftikhar's innovative, spontaneous, and eccentric teaching style led to my achievement in maths. He readily tried new teaching strategies, which accommodated my learning needs. His teaching style created an environment where I tried new things, took risks, and progressed academically. Throughout his teaching, Mr Iftikhar was unfailingly polite, and had demonstrated a sound moral reasoning, and overall impeccable character.
Without reservation, I would highly recommend Mr Iftikhar for GCSE, A-Level, and IB (International Baccalaureate) Mathematics tuition. I would give Mr Iftikhar the highest recommendation for any teaching or tutoring position for Mathematics.
Maths (A-Level)
I successfully passed A level maths with a grade A (85%) with his help and guidance.
