FREEING UP FOR GCSE's AND A-LEVEL MATHS

I am a fully qualified Mathematics teacher at a grammar school in Walsall. Being awarded the highest teaching grade and recognised for my talents in teaching by various mathematical societies across the UK, including the Institute for Mathematics And Its Applications, I believe I am the perfect tutor for your child. Below, is my journey through the world of private tuition.

I started tutoring at the age of fourteen, since then I have had the pleasure of teaching students from all walks of life and I would like to share two of my most successful stories. The first, my youngest student aged eight, was unfortunately under performing, achieving grades 1C’s and 1B’s. He was very much uninterested in education and any conventional style of teaching proved to be ineffective. After a couple of lessons of trial and error I divided the session into short segments by engaging in conversation for two minutes after every five minutes of work. This method resulted in greater productivity in lessons and he now has a more positive attitude towards learning. The outcome was improved grades of 5C in maths and 4C in English.

The second, an A-level student who unfortunately achieved a grade E in Core 1, at the time he was experiencing many family problems and his attendance was poor. Due to his financial situation I initially taught him for free and we started by preparing for the approaching June exams in 2013. Throughout his A-levels his attendance did not improve, therefore, to ensure lessons would take place I was very flexible with lesson times. We began from the basics and discovered that his ability in manipulating mathematics was below average. We concentrated firmly on this for a long period of time ensuring that all techniques were covered in depth. This proved to work very well and all mock tests were giving positive results. Continuing onto A2 his confidence was very low as overall he scraped a grade C in AS mathematics. To combat this I placed him into a small A-level group class so as to to create an element of deliberate competition, this adaptation proved to boost his confidence and his drive grew exponentially. With this new confidence and profound mathematical ability he went on to achieving a grade A*.

I have also worked alongside schools, most recently with Joseph Leckie Academy, where I was tutoring Key Stage 3, GCSE, A-level Mathematics and STEP (an entrance exam for universities such as Cambridge and Warwick). In addition to this, I have worked with both English Martyr's Primary and Elmwood Community Special School.

I have worked for tuition companies too such as Scientia, Explore Learning and Tutorfair. At Scientia I had the role of Head Tutor and at Tutorfair I am currently working as a Brand Ambassador.

Most recently I was employed by the Oxford Royale Academy to deliver a short summer specialist maths course to those individuals who are mathematically inclined. I worked with students from all around the world, with ages ranging between 13-18. Not only did I score the top mark for delivery, awarded by the Oxford Royale's Director of Studies but based on student feedback, I received an average overall teaching score of 96.7% . (My friendliness score was 98% because I'm nice).

I believe I have a very unique style of teaching, my highly enthusiastic, adaptable and patient approach ensures students achieve their potential and enjoy all lessons. My lessons are very interactive and I try to maintain a friendly but professional relationship with my students.

I hoped you enjoyed reading my profile and I am happy to answer any questions that you might have so please feel free to message me and I will get back to you ASAP!

My Favourite Tutor Ever!!!!

Umar is a really fun tutor. All my lessons are one hour long and I come twice a week, one day I do maths, the other English. I have him on Whatsapp and sometimes we talk after Friday prayer or if I get stuck on homework he helps me. I didn't like tutoring before but now its more interesting and I get along with Umar really well.

Reference for Umar

Umar tutored my son Ricky for 20months in Maths, English and Science. Umar was always friendly and professional in his attitude with both myself and Ricky, providing me with regular updates on Ricky's progress. When Ricky started his tuition sessions with Umar he was working at foundation level and at the end of May this year Ricky sat his GCSE at the higher level in maths.

Reference for Umar H

Umar has been teaching maths to my 2 sons. Since being tutored by Umar their grades in Maths have started to improve and their teachers have also commented on their improvement.
What made me decide to continue tuition with Umar was due to the nature of his teaching and the way he interacts with his students.
My oldest son is very sensitive and did not enjoy maths very much. On his first lesson with Umar I stayed with him through the lesson. The way Umar taught was amazing to say the least. My son also commented on how much he enjoyed the lesson, that he couldn't wait to go back again. He even asked for more homework!!! Which is normally a weak point for him.

My personal experience of tuition with Umar H

My personal experience of tuition with Umar Hussain:

Well where could I start. There's not enough words in the dictionary to say how much I appreciate what this man has done for me in regards to my educational career. My story starts at A-level where I had received an E grade in one of my modules in Mathematics. My attendance was quite poor due to personal difficulties. With his help, I had pushed my grades up to an overall C grade by the end of my first year by receiving B grades in my other two out of three modules.
In my final year, with his help and hard work yet again, I have reached the greatest success in my educational life that I could ever receive which was an overall A* in Mathematics to which was pushed up from a C grade. His teaching skills and tactics was by far more better for me than the teachers I had in School. We were restricted by time and had many topics to go through but was successful.
To add to this, I was of the top three students in rank who received the highest grades in my School. Before his tuition and my hard work, I was predicted to fail by all of my teachers but it was him who motivated me and believed in me.
Umar Hussain was just not a tutor for me, during the end of the two years of A-level, he had become my teacher, my friend, my role model and inspiration for me and many others. He had also volunteered to come back to his school to which I attended to help other students at my age to get through this A-level so we can successfully reach University. There's no doubt in my mind that his greatest passion was always to help others succeed.
