Hi, I am a UK qualified teacher(QTS) with more than 20 years of experience teaching maths. I have done Masters in Maths at King`s College, London.I have taught students of different abilities and age group in last 20 years.

A-Level Maths Tuition

Written by Thomas R
I am without doubt that throughout my A-levels the best decision I made was to come to Poonam for help. From the very first lesson I had with her it became clear that she was going to change the way I saw and dealt with maths as a subject. Her assistance in lesson and over the phone in the run up to the exams has been amazing. I plan to continue with Poonam for the entirety of my A-Levels. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me a thomasruland@icloud.com.

Mathematics

Written by Medi Remi H
Ms Amit has been teaching me Mathematics for the past year and in that time, thanks to her fantastic teaching, I have made phenomenal progress.

Her ability to explain and teach complex topics is second to none. This is demonstrated by the speed at which we were able to cover topics in depth: We were able to cover all six of my modules in only six months.

Furthermore, she is able to teach all modules equally well, from core mathematics to statistics to mechanics.

All in all, I would highly recommend Ms Amit to anyone needing a Mathematics tutor.
Subject:
Maths
Outcome:
I have obtained an A in my Maths and Further Maths AS Levels, with UMS scores of over 90% in all but one of my modules as well as 74/75 in C2 and 74/75 in M1.

Amazing tutor for maths

Written by Tasnim Q
At the beginning of the year i was struggling with maths and I was unable to meet my target grade, which made me resent maths. However, after I met Poonam I soon started to love maths. Her teaching methods are amazing. She explains every step in detail and if you're still confused about a certain topic she will repeat it a 1000x until you fully understand it and are confident about it. Also, she'd constantly encourage me that I can do well and she pushed me out of my comfort zone and her support helped me significantly.
Subject:
Maths

I was predicted a B for GCSE maths but with Poonam's help I got an A*. Due to this I am now taking a level maths with her as my tutor. She's seriously the best tutor that I've ever had

Excellent tutor for Admissions Entrance

Written by Soniaa S
Poonam is an excellent tutor, reliable, highly competent and willing to go an extra mile for her tutees.She spent the first lesson to know more about my daughter and to find her weaknesses. She prepared my daughter to a higly reputed academic school's 13+ entrance and I must say in such a short span of time she did a fantastic job. My daughter not only made it but also got highest marks in two subjects. Poonam is extremely hardworking and focussed. She is also very knowledgeable about entrance examination requirements and preparation. My daughter found her lessons very interesting and knowledgeable. She was also quick to respond to my texts and always punctual and flexible if changes were requested. I am very pleased that my daughter got into her desired school and I have no hesitation in recommending Poonam as a tutor. Thank you Poonam for all your effort! I am glad we found you!

Highly recommended

Written by Anu K
We live in Switzerland & are planning to move back to U.K. To prepare our son for the 13+ entrance exams we engaged Poonam for intensive private lessons. The time frame was only 10 days.
We appreciate Poonam's flexibility that she moved things around to create space for the lessons. Her priority was to assess & evaluate the level of her student & then build lessons around what our son hadn't studied in Switzerland, all within a span of 1-2days.
With the effort & dedication of teacher & student duo, our son has made it to his preferred school. We are very grateful to Poonam & can highly recommend her to whoever prioritizes their children's education.

Maths
Outcome:
Our son got into his preferred school of choice.

Maths

Written by Jane K
Poonam and my son met just under 3 months before his final A2 exam. From the get go her lessons were fast, organised and personally tailored. Poonam's broad knowledge of the subject saw my son tackling questions from different exam boards with varying difficulty which not only challenged him but also worked towards exam technique. Despite the short period, my son excelled noticeably but was such a shame that he met Poonam very late on. With Poonam's hard work, commitment and enthusiasm my son was able to secure a place at medical school and is very much looking forward to starting this September! I highly highly recommend Poonam - simply the best. Well done Poonam!
Subject:

Accepted into medical school
