About Imdad

Passionate about education! (Cambridge University Graduate)

Hi there!

My name's Imdad, and I'm currently working at Argon Design Ltd as an Engineer, mainly focussed on software development. I recently completed my Ph.D. at Trinity College, Cambridge, researching Quantum Computing (Theoretical Physics). I completed my undergraduate degree also in Cambridge in 2012, gaining a First.

Since I was young, I've been fascinated by physics and maths, and I'd love to share my enthusiasm for those subjects with everyone!

Music is another big passion of mine, and I play quite a few instruments - French Horn, Piano, Recorder, Violin, Trumpet, mostly to Grade 8 level. In addition, I'm happy to teach Music Theory up to Grade 8 level. Music was my biggest extra-curricular activity during my study at university, and I was the President of the Cambridge University Symphony Orchestra for two years.

I love computers and programming, which are both a huge part of my job. I've also spent loads of time writing apps for smartphones and developing several websites.

I'm well known for the way I teach and get difficult ideas across to people - if you're stuck on Physics or Maths, you won't be for much longer!

Teaching Experience:

I've been teaching for many years, both tutoring and teaching in classes. I have tutored students for 11+ exams, helped with GCSE and A Level work, and I currently have students whom I supervise for Mathematics and Physics university courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I pride myself on my ability to explain things in ways that help students grasp the underlying principles of the subject. In my experience, if these basics are understood, a good intuition for the rest of the subject develops very quickly and naturally. I find that GCSEs and A Levels focus much too strongly on teaching a few methods - and a lot of the time, the students find they have no true understanding of the subject, and I do my best to remedy this.
