A fun, friendly and passionate tutor

*Currently taking summer bookings! Please get in touch for either summer residential or London-based summer tuition.*


As an advocate for sustainable development, my main goal is to sustainably shape the world around us through education and engineering.

I am currently studying to as Masters programme at Imperial College Business School in Climate Change Finance. Previously, I have been working as an Energy Consultant in a consultancy that seeks to decarbonise the European economy by investing in low carbon initiatives. This comes after working as a Sustainability and Physics Engineer for a British firm that led the design for the British Museum, the Olympic Park and Battersea Power Station.

My passion for teaching stems from encouraging more pupils to pursue STEM subjects, particularly girls. I have worked with many age groups (5 - 26 years old) in private and public schools or universities. I mentor young girls to pursue STEM subjects, organise outreach programmes and sit on several committees including the Royal Academy of Engineering's Diversity Leadership Group, Energy Institute Young Professional Network, and UNICEF's advocacy branch. Familiar with both the British educational system and International Baccalaureate (IB) systems, I have helped young adults achieve high grades and facilitated their understanding of the subject at hand.

I speak five languages, have traveled to over 45 countries, and lived on four different continents. I am passionate about photography and have recently been named 2014's Top 25 Under 25 in the world of sustainable business.

Patient, knowledgeable and good with children

Tarek is an experienced and knowledgeable tutor. He is very patient and will explain a topic several times if necessary. Tarek is able to take the stress of 'not understanding' and helps finding ways to make things understandable. And a lot of exercises! He is also very punctual in his appointments. Would recommend him highly as a tutor!!
Outcome:
My daughter, who was very insecure about her abilities, seems to have a better understanding of the studied topics now and enough courage to start more challenging assignments without asking someone f

Engaging, responsible and intellectual

I was supervised by Tarek during a 2 week internship organized by the Social Mobility Foundation. Throughout the internship, he was fun and engaging whilst showing a strong level of responsibility and excellent communication skills.

Tarek was responsible for getting a group of me and 9 other student, none of whom were from London, across the city to their place of work; he was also responsible for our pastoral care and generally accomodating our every need. It is true to say he did his job exceptionally well.

Having lived in London and studied Civil Engineering, Tarek was keen to teach us about some of the buildings & infrastructure in London. A few weeks later, I found myself studying resonance (in A2 Physics) and remembered Tarek telling me about how & why dampers were installed on the Millenium bridge to counter resonance from people walking on it! This really helped me understand the real life application of Physics and made it much more interesting.

I have no doubt that Tarek would make a great tutor, engage well with his students and take real responsibility for their studies.

Reference as a group leader

Tarek worked as a group leader during a two week residential programme, where students across the country came down to London to undertake an internship at JP Morgan Chase. Tarek was responsible for a group of 10 students and had collective responsibility with other group leaders for 45 students in total. Tarek was exceptional role model for the students; approachable, yet firm and displayed good communication skills. He gave students clear concise instructions during evening activities organised for the students and throughout the two weeks students felt comfortable to raise their concerns/problems they were experiencing as well as discuss their educational aspirations. Tarek gave good advice to students throughout the residential. He was a reliable member of staff and had excellent time keeping management throughout the two weeks.

Great working with young kids

Tarek has tutored my 5 year old with primary maths. When she started with him she did not know her bond of 10's. After 4 months she not only can do her 10's she was able to add and subtract double digits. He was also very calm and patient working with a child so young. I am very please with the outcome of the lessons and looking forward to working with Tarek again on other subjects.

Teaching as it should be...

Tarek has a very special gift at connecting with a student, and making the subject less intimidating.

His style is one of collaborative growth, by guiding and not dictating development.

His approach has fostered trust and built confidence, in what can sometimes be a very intimidating and fast paced subject.

Maths
Outcome:
My daughter became more confident, and relaxed when broaching new topics and exams, which has in turn had a very positive impact on her grades.

Highly recommended!

I had the utmost pleasure of having Tarek tutor my daughter for her IGCSE math. Tarek has a very amicable personality, is extremely friendly with children of any age, has tremendous patience and is very knowledgeable in what he teaches. Not only was my daughter excited to learn from him, my other younger son would also sometimes sit to join the fun as Tarek can make any lesson fun and interesting! My best wishes are always with Tarek. He has been very helpful and courteous. I highly recommend him for math tuition.

Fantastic tutoring

Tarek has been tutoring my 16th year old daughter. It was an intensive preparation for Physics and Geography IGCSE's. In both subjects, we highly appreciated his approach with tutoring, his intelligence, methodology, knowledge and his dedication to helping my daughter improving her results...
His humor and good education were "la cerise sur le gateau" (the icing on the cake) as we say in French. Tarek is fluent in french as well and can easily tutor British or international students.
Subject:
Physics
Outcome:
My daughter has now understood complicated concepts in Physics. Eventually, for the first time, she has got A's in her geography and physics past papers.
