Educational background: Medicine, University of Birmingham.
Tutor, Examiner and Educational Consultant.
All clients either travel to my office or have lessons online via Skype.

Being one of the most successful and cost-effective tutors on Tutorfair, I have a specific protocol which has ensured great success. An initial 10 minute telephone consultation is necessary prior to booking lessons with myself for me to understand your exact requirements and to assess whether we are mutually compatible. After that and assuming we are both happy to proceed, a minimum commitment of 10 weeks is needed by both parties to ensure the best chance of success. This can be found on my tutoring contract which has been made available to Tutorfair.

I studied Medicine at and graduated from the University of Birmingham. As a specialist full time tutor in Biology, Chemistry, Sciences, Maths, Entrance Exams and Medicine, I have thousands of hours of tutoring experience. This includes 1-2-1, group, Skype tutoring and crash courses. I have my own tutoring company and professional website (with superb resources for all ages).

My ethos follows Mahatma Gandhi's famous quotation: “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

My interest in tutoring stems from my experience in Medicine where we have to educate and teach colleagues and patients alike. I discovered that tutoring is my niche, is what I enjoy and have a natural talent for. Having been part of the interviewer panel at the University of Birmingham Medical School, I am able to offer top tips and advice on how to gain admission into medical schools both nationally and internationally. I have a superb track record in terms of admissions to medical universities, Oxbridge and top private and grammar schools across the country. As well as being an examiner for multiple UK exam boards at GCSE and A-level, I have also won multiple tutoring accolades.

There are great similarities in terms of the skills and personality required of good tutors and doctors. Examples of these include; patience, perseverance, the ability to listen and communicate effectively, honesty, integrity, confidentiality, reflective practice, continuous learning and professional development.

I am enthusiastic about teaching and helping others to discover, develop and achieve their full potential. I strive for the maximum and encourage my students to do the same. I achieved superb A-level results with above 90% passes in Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Economics with a near-perfect 100% in Biology. My GCSE results were also very impressive.

I tutor and coach students of all ages and abilities.I am also experienced in SEN tutoring and have tutored students with various levels of dyslexia. My specialist subjects and areas of expertise are; degree level Medicine; BMAT, UKCAT and GAMSAT; University admissions, personal statements and interview preparation (MMI, panel and Oxbridge); A-level Chemistry, Biology, Human Biology, Maths and Economics; and GCSE Maths, English, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and the Sciences. I also cover all the Key Stages, SATs, Common Entrance, 7+, 11+ and 13+ entrance exams for top private and grammar schools across the country. Over the years, I have had great success in the Common Entrance exams in Maths, Science, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning which are set by the ISEB for students sitting the exams at 11 or 13 years old and who are looking to gain admission into the best selective schools in the country.

I have a profound interest in education and coaching. I have helped many students get into Medicine and Dentistry and have tutored several medical students in their pre-clinical and clinical years. I have successfully helped several candidates with their University personal statements, entrance exams (including BMAT, UKCAT, GAMSAT, IMAT, TSA and the American SATs) and interview preparation (including the new MMIs, panel and Oxbridge interviews). The vast majority (greater than 98%) of my students have gone on to achieve excellent exam results and have gained entrance into top schools, colleges, universities and degree courses. More than 97% of my students achieve A*/A at A-level and GCSE in the subjects I tutor them. More than 90% of my entrance exam students have gained admission into their first choice schools, colleges and Universities, many of which are highly selective, prestigious and among the best in the country. More than 90% of my medical and dental applicants get into their first choice University.

My approach to teaching is focused on and tailored to meet the needs of the individual learner. Lessons are interactive, captivating, fun and rewarding. Much attention is paid to exam technique and structuring of answers as well as the theoretical content. My approach to teaching motivates and inspires students and builds their confidence. I have the unique ability of making difficult and challenging topics appear interesting, rewarding and easy. I cover all the exam boards and all aspects of the syllabus.

My experience also extends to in-school teaching. I had the privilege of teaching A-level students at a local academy school for a full semester. The experience was rewarding and insightful. Within a short space of time, I was able to significantly improve the students' results and motivation levels. I also have experience of marking and examining GCSE and A-level papers for Biology, Chemistry and Maths.

I am able to offer one-to-one tuition, group tuition and online tutoring over Skype. I have tutored many students from prestigious schools such as Merchant Taylors, Haberdashers, North London Collegiate, QE Boys, Henrietta Barnet, St Helen's, St Paul's, Colet Court, Westminster, Harrow School, Sevenoaks, St Martins, St Johns, Radlett prep, Northwood College, Parmiter's and Watford Grammar. On the same token, I have successfully helped many students get into the finest schools and universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and Eton. My tutoring services extend internationally as well. Through Skype and other online tutoring platforms, I have tutored students in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Singapore, Switzerland, Monaco, Russia, India, China, East Africa, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. I am also fortunate enough to have had the privilege of having tutoring placements abroad.

I also specialise in tutoring external candidates who are going to be doing their studies and/or exams independently from their schools, for example because they may be resit candidates. This means I am able to teach the entire syllabus on a one-to-one or small group basis and cover all aspects of exam preparation, revision, techniques and past papers. Over the last 3 years alone, I have tutored 18 A-level students in this way (10 As and 8A*s), 6 GCSE students (all A*s) and 2 university students (one got 1st and the other 2:1).

I offer a bespoke and very high quality tutoring service. My ambition is to become the finest tutor in the country. I would be happy to discuss your particular needs. My USP is simply my personality, professionalism, reliability and enthusiasm for the subjects I tutor and in education in general. I strongly believe the quality of lessons is far more important than the quantity.

If you are looking for quality tuition and for someone who is really inspirational with a proven track record, then look no further as you have found the right person!

Please note: I also offer substantial discounts for group tuition. This applies to all age groups and levels. Group sizes are no more than 5 pupils. I will do my best to make sure that all pupils are of similar ability to be most effective so that there is healthy competition! If you do not prefer group tuition, then I am more than happy to offer one-to-one or online tuition.

I no longer travel to clients' addresses because of my growing popularity and busy schedule. It is not unusual for clients to be travelling to me from far away. I am based in Stanmore, HA7, where I have an office dedicated to tutoring. Don't forget with advancements in technology, online tuition (using Skype or Google Hangouts) is a suitable option and in my humble opinion, is equally as effective as face to face tuition with group online tuition also being possible.

As an educational consultant, I am able to offer specialist advice on a range of educational matters such as admissions, entrance exams, work experience, exam techniques, resits, UCAS, personal statements, interviews, University/School selection etc.

If you are looking for tuition in a subject or area that I do not cover, please feel free to contact me about your particular needs and I will try and refer you to some of the best tutors around. I have helped many clients in this way as well.

NB: The group rates mentioned above are excluding the Tutorfair commission.

I look forward to hearing from you.

With best wishes,

Sawan

Sawan is supportive, courteous, honest and reliable. He is always punctual and is very flexible with his schedule. His teaching sessions are always very productive and useful. He is always well prepared for the lessons. I found that he was patient and very good at listening. He has a very good sense of humour so it is incredibly easy to get along with him and he has a way of helping remember key concepts which I have never seen or thought of before. His positive energy radiates across to his students.

Fantastic, experienced, knowledgeable and unique tutor

His enthusiasm for teaching is clear from day one. He has great awareness of the syllabus requirements of different exam boards. His predictions of what tends to come up in the exams are usually correct. To top it all up, he was able to provide me with some great career advice and helped me with regards to my choice of subjects and school for A-levels.

Sublime, humble, moral boosting and extraordinary tutor.

Quite frankly, I have never had a tutor as good as him and I have been to both state and private schools. Before I started with him, I was a grade C student in Maths and the Sciences. After about 3 months of tuitions with him, I achieved top grades in all these subjects. There is something unique about him and his ability and methods which is difficult to describe in words. He gives his all to teaching and helping others. I will remain indebted to him forever.
Subject:
Chemistry (GCSE)

4A*s in the subjects he taught.

Excellent value for money tutor

He is tremendously gifted in his ability to teach and very sincere. He has a great personality and is the perfect modern day tutor. He is young so is easy to relate to. He is very knowledgeable with great experience in tutoring. It's rather unfortunate that I can't have him as my tutor for A-levels because I will be moving outside London. Highly recommended!

Organised, great value for money, easily the best tutor I have had!

He is a top tutor who deserves great recognition for the work that he does. Despite being to two private schools which are both ranked near the top in terms of league tables, I have to be honest and say that he is the best tutor I have had. His lessons are stimulating and focused. He is very well organised and has some great revision notes which I found incredibly useful in the buildup to exams.

Experienced, gifted and top tutor

I think Sawan is a truly gifted teacher with a natural ability and flair. I often told him he was the Messi or Federer of teaching because he made things look very easy and was very effective. He has a great way of explaining and helping one to understand concepts. It's very rare to find such a gem of a tutor just as you don't get many Messis and Federers.

His only downside is that he supports Liverpool whereas I am a big Arsenal fan.

Professional, dedicated and inspiring tutor

Sawan is an excellent tutor and a professional with a great sense of personality and desire to help others. He is dedicated to his teaching and is very humble. Despite being very busy, he always makes time for his students. He responds very quickly to any emails or phone calls even outside of his normal tutoring hours and even at weekends. His flexibility and ability to manage his schedule to fit around other people's needs is incredible. He has been a great source of help for me in my progression through medical school and is better than any university lecturer I have had or textbook I have read. I think teaching is his niche and something he is gifted in. Highly recommended!

Great tutor with impeccable teaching skills. Highly recommended!

Sawan is a great tutor and easily the best tutor I have had despite going to a private school. He is brilliant in his explanations and his notes are simply better than textbooks. The best bit is that of all this seems to come naturally to him. I have to thank him for all his input and efforts because it was mainly due to him that I achieved such excellent GCSEs.

A truly incredible tutor!

I am writing on behalf of both my sons. Sawan taught both of them very well. My oldest son got A*s in all the subjects Sawan taught him at GCSE and my younger one also got excellent Key Stage results. Sawan was very thorough in what he covered and was patient, giving my sons time to understand and reinforce their learning. He was very effective in his methods and had a very pleasant manner. Although my sons were doing different exam boards in different subjects, Sawan knew all the major syllabuses very well. He was flexible and very considerate. I have recommended Sawan to all my family, friends and relatives!

Very useful tutor

Sawan is a great tutor, although he obviously has a vast, more advanced and complicated understanding of the subjects taught, he is always able to communicate things to me at a GCSE level and explained what is necessary in my exams. At times, he even has the ability to explain things at a higher level in order for me to understand it better at a GCSE level and aim for the A* grade. He is clearly an expert on the subjects, but is also very friendly and a good teacher. He is also able to identify potential weaknesses and gaps in my knowledge in order to complete my understanding of the subject. Overall, he is a great tutor to have in every way and also a very friendly, polite and likeable person who is easy to ask questions.

TUTOR FOR MATHS AND SCIENCE

My son was able to easily adjust to Sawan. Ordinarily, my son takes a look time to trust people. Sawan was able to make a difference very quickly. Sawan focused intensely on raising my son's confidence, which was at an all time low and suffering from exam time stress. Once the trust was gained and confidence developed, my son was able to learn new and unfamiliar subjects. I am hopeful for a good outcome on exam results as a direct result of Sawan's involvement.

Excellent tutor

Sawan is a great tutor, he is very good at making complicated concepts easy to understand and takes great care in making sure you understand the content before moving on.

I also did some exam preparation with him by going over previous papers and it was a great way to learn from him as he made me aware of all the common ways they ask questions and got me thinking in the right way about exams.

I would recommend Sawan for anybody who feels they need extra help understanding chemistry.

Sawan tutored me in A-level Economics and Maths over a year ago. He is very good at explaining complex concepts. His enthusiasm and drive are remarkable and definitely inspired me to work hard and improve. He is very humble and dedicated as well as a true professional. If there is anything like a well-rounded tutor, then Sawan fits this perfectly because he teaches a range of subjects at different levels and has a wide range of interests like sports (he supports Liverpool FC and Ferrari in F1)!

Fantastic Maths and Science tutor

I am very lucky to have had a tutor like Sawan. He taught me Maths and Science for about 1.5 years. He is charismatic and gifted. I recently got my GCSE results and got A* in Maths and 3A*s in triple science. I think more than anything it is Sawan's ability to explain topics which just seem to sink in instantly and naturally. He was always challenging me to achieve the maximum marks possible; such is his level of perfection. I would award him more than 5*. I scored 97% in Maths, 98% in Biology, 95% in Chemistry and 90% in Physics.

Incredible English and Maths tutor

Sawan tutored me for GCSE Maths and English. He was extremely good in both subjects. He had full knowledge of the syllabus and ideal exam techniques. He helped move my grade up from B to A* in Maths after just one year of regular tuition and for English I was predicted B for Literature and B for Language; Sawan helped me to get A* for Literature and A for English Language in the same space of time. I am incredibly grateful for his efforts and I am now recommending him to all my family members, relatives and friends. He is a brilliant tutor.

I have had tutors in the past but I have to say that there is something about Sawan which makes him stand out from the rest. I think it's to do with his zest for teaching and helping . He is a great communicator. He did make me work hard but made studying enjoyable. Full marks to him.

From an E to an A over a single summer!

Sawan singlehandedly boosted me from a failure to a high pass over a single summer in my Chemistry, right in time for predicted grades. He accommodates his sessions entirely around me, he always listens and he never moves on until he is absolutely sure I am an expert in what we're studying. He is really easy to talk to and was a huge boost for me. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a guaranteed improvement.

Superb UKCAT tutor - better than any course out there!

I have just completed my AS Exams and want to read Medicine at University. I had a 2 week intensive crash course on UKCAT with Sawan. He taught me and my 2 friends (Emily and Natalie) as a small group. The crash course was really worthwhile. Sawan covered the material and technique really well. We recently gave the exam in Watford and we all got scores of 700 +. I would recommend Sawan highly also because he has great insight and advice on personal statements and medical interviews. I believe he is much better than other courses out there which are very expensive and done in too large and ineffective groups. We are tremendously grateful to Sawan for all his help and input!

Exceptional and Talented UKCAT tutor

Sawan is a fabulous and meticulous tutor. He covered all aspects of the UKCAT really well. I had gone on an expensive course prior to lessons with Sawan and had another tutor previously but I can safely say that Sawan was by far the best and I wish I had known about him earlier. I had 3 lessons with him a week for about a month and in that time, I have seen a huge improvement in my performance. I sat the exam last week and got a score of 748 which I could not believe. Thank you very much!

Excellent Skype tutoring - Amongst the best for sure

Sawan has been very effective in tutoring me through skype. He has been tutoring me for over a year now. He covers a lot in his lessons and despite going to a private school here in Singapore, I have really benefited from Sawan's help. Compared to some of my other previous tutors, he covers almost twice as much. For example, the amount I learnt with Sawan in just 3 lessons was more than the amount I learnt with my previous tutor in 10 lessons. So Sawan's lessons are good value for money. I have recommended him to 2 students already and still counting.
