About Vishal

Experienced 11+ and GCSE Maths/English/Science tutor

I have worked as a tutor for over 15 years and have over 5000 hours of tutoring experience. My professional yet friendly approach, added to the knowledge and experience I bring to tutoring lessons, has led to my students achieving fantastic grades. This is very rewarding and makes all the hard work I put into planning and delivering lessons worthwhile.

PLEASE NOTE: I am offering all students a reduced price of £125 for 2 hours (normally £150) if you book any lessons with me in June/July 2018 (given your location).

Having marked 11+ exam scripts for some of the top grammar and private schools around the country (including Wallington, Wilsons, Whitgift, Trinity and Old Palace), I have more than enough experience and exam preparation advice when it comes to these exams. Having over 15 years experience in tutoring children in Maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning, is one of the reasons that my 11+ pass rates are incredibly high.

Some of my recent successes include:

***Four 7+ children gaining entry into 2 grammar schools and 2 private schools
***Five 11+ students gaining entry into Wallington Boys
***Four 11+ students gaining entry into Whitgift
***Four 11+ students gaining entry into Old Palace
***Three 11+ students gaining entry into Wallington Girls
***Three 11+ students gaining entry into Nonsuch High School for Girls
***Three 11+ students gaining entry into Wilson's

***Year 8 English student going from 65% to 89% in his English Language mock exams within 6 tutoring lessons with me
***Year 9 Maths student going from Set 7 to Set 3 in the matter of one term (12 weeks)

***GCSE Science student improving his grade from a 6 to a 8 (Edexcel exam board) within 5 months of tutoring with me
***GCSE Biology and Physics student improving her grades from a 4 to a 7 (Edexcel exam board) within 3 months of tutoring with me
***GCSE English student improving her grade from C to A within four weeks of tutoring
***GCSE Maths student gaining A grade allowing him to study Maths at Imperial College London
***GCSE Maths student gaining A grade allowing him to study Maths at London School of Economics (LSE)


I specialise in:


**7+, 11+ and 13+ entrance examinations

**Maths (Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3, GCSE)

**English (Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3, GCSE)

**Science (Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3, GCSE)


I am conversant in all exam boards (AQA, Pearson Edexcel, OCR, CCEA and WJEC) and the new GCSE curriculum and grading system (1-9).


PLEASE NOTE:

I am a full-time tutor, thus my priority is helping children to learn and progress, via teaching and providing them with the necessary skills and confidence. Therefore you can be assured that all my attention and focus is on helping your child learn, progress and achieve their true potential.

The most important question from a parent’s perspective should be: ‘What motivates a tutor?’ My answer for this is simple – I enjoy teaching because it is great to see 'that light bulb' moment when the student suddenly understands a topic and becomes confident about the topic and subject. This confidence and desire to learn is then transferred to other parts of their life. I have had many students who have disliked a particular subject, but my teaching methods have not only resulted in outstanding grades, but these students have gone to university to study the same subjects that they thought were ‘boring’ or ‘too hard’ only a few years ago. I am confident that with my knowledge, exam techniques and ability to explain a range of topics in different ways to suit different learning styles, brings out students’ true potential.

I also prepare students for the 11+ entrance examinations. I have successfully prepared students for entrance into:

Wallington Boys
Wallington High School for Girls
Wilson’s
Sutton Grammar
Nonsuch High School for Girls
Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls
Greenshaw High School
Trinity
Tiffin Boys
Tiffin Girls
Harris Academy and others

I focus on the key aspects/topics that come up year after year in these exams. Also, having attended Wilson’s when I was younger and having my siblings attend Wallington County Grammar, has led to me knowing exactly what preparation and topics are vital for success in these exams. I am happy to pass on my knowledge to students and get them into the school of their dreams.

PLEASE NOTE: The trial lesson fee (first lesson) is £45 per hour. This lesson fee includes my travelling fee, thus there are no extra charges.

The lesson fee after the trial hour is shown below and I only accept 2 hour bookings, as the minimum lesson length. However, if you live close-by, there is some flexibility in terms of lesson length and pricing. This lesson fee is per hour.

Primary (Key Stage 1 ) = £60.00
Primary (Key Stage 2) = £75.00
Secondary (Key Stage 3) = £75.00
Secondary (GCSE) = £75.00
7+ entrance examinations = £75.00
11+ entrance examinations = £75.00
13+ entrance examinations = £75.00
A-Level/Adult Learners = £75.00

One of the key differentiating factors between myself and other tutors, who I greatly respect, is that I am highly invested in ensuring your child/children do well. This is why my tutoring services are not limited to just the tutoring lesson. If you or your son/daughter has a question outside of tutoring hours, this is not a problem for me. For example, I have had parents call me at 11pm the day before their son’s GCSE exams asking for advice, and I have been happy to take that call and provide assistance. I have also had parents/students struggle when choosing the best college/university to apply to, and using my knowledge and experience, I have advised accordingly. I have also used my contacts within schools/universities to help students with key tips for upcoming exams.

In regards to the GCSE exams, the new curriculum changes from 9-1 has made it difficult for students to gain a decent pass grade, let alone secure top grades. Now is the best time to secure a tutor to ensure that maximum and consistent progress is made from now on until the GCSE exams. My method is simple: Tailor each lesson according to the level and ability of the child/student, whilst making the lesson enjoyable, so that the child/student is motivated to learn and progress.

As you can see from the above, I not only provide tutoring lessons but go beyond what is expected of me, in that I ensure both the parent and student are happy and satisfied. I place the same amount of importance on your child’s education, as you do on your child’s education.

The best decision you will make about your child's 11+ exams

Written by Keval P
Keval was struggling with his Maths, English and non-verbal reasoning. These were the main exams that he would have to take in order to gain admittance into our choice of grammar school (Wallington Boys, Wilson's and Whitgift).

We knew the competition was fierce for these schools, but decided to go ahead with tuition session with Vishal due to his exceptionally high pass rates for his 11+ students. Within the first session, we knew we had picked the perfect tutor for our son. Not only was Vishal patient, but his ability to make the lesson interesting and engage with our son, meant that Keval actually looked forward to his lessons with Vishal on a weekly basis. We have never had a tutor who went the extra mile and goes beyond what is expected, but this changed when Vishal arrived. He doesn’t just get up and leave after the session is up. He is happy to provide feedback and explain what was taught in the lesson and what Keval still needs to work on moving forward. In the end, Keval gained admittance to all 3 grammar schools of our choice and we picked Wallington Boys as our choice.

I would not hesitate to recommend Vishal for any children who are going for their 11+ exams.
Subject:
11 Plus
Outcome:
Gained admittance into Wallington Boys (one of the top grammar schools in Sutton)

Patient English tutor

Written by Lucy M
Vishal has been tutoring my daughter since 2015 and is currently preparing her for the mock GCSE English exams that my daughter will sit next week and the real GCSE exams that Lucy will take in May later this year.

His ability to explain things in different ways and the exam tips he has given to my daughter are worthwhile. My daughter’s grade have gone up drastically with her going up 2 levels as of November 2017. I will continue tutoring session with Vishal throughout the year leading to the GCSE English exams.
Subject:
English Language
Outcome:
My daughter has improved and is currently improving. She feels more confident when writing essays, creative writing pieces and letter/articles.

Excellent tutor

Written by Lucy M
I highly recommend Vishal to anybody looking for a high quality tutor to help with GCSE Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics). He is currently helping me study for my GCSEs. We started in November 2017, and I have been able to learn quicker and more efficiently than before. This is because he uses methods which are simple and easy to understand, rather than overwhelming me with too much information. He has helped me to look at exam questions, pick out key information and answer the question so that I can get the maximum marks available.
Subject:
Science
Outcome:
Gained a 7 in my GCSE mocks with Vishal's help and hoping to get an 8/9 in my real GCSEs

Highly Recommended

Written by Sharlene H
Vishal has been working with my daughter for approximately 5 weeks prior to her year 8 exams. He has all the qualities you require from a great maths tutor: patient, calm, encouraging,motivating and not to mention making some of the difficult topics bit size and manageable. Would definitely request his help again in the future.
Subject:
Advanced Maths
Outcome:
A very confident and happy child who did much better than she or her class teacher anticipated and the additional lessons allowed her to demonstrate her capability!

GCSE Maths

Written by Joshua J
Vishal immediately noticed that my 16 year old son was well prepared knowledge wise for his GCSE Maths exam, but that he was approaching the questions incorrectly and the structure of his answers meant that he was not getting the grades that he expected. In just 3 tutoring lessons, my son was achieving A grades in his practice papers (whereas before he was achieving a B grade). I can't thank Vishal enough for his ability to help my son improve his exam technique.
Subject:
Maths
Outcome:
I am a happy parent, my son is happy and he is confident going into his exam!

GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature

Written by Gemma D
Vishal tutored my daughter from September 2016 until June 2017 and covered both GCSE English Language and English Literature with my daughter.

We ended up choosing Vishal because he was clear from the outset - he told us what level our daughter was at, where she should be at for her age and put together a plan to make sure she achieved her true potential. We were expecting our daughter to achieve 2 B's as a minimum.

To find out on results day that she achieved an A in both English Language and English Literature was a welcome surprise. If you are looking for a professional tutor with the ability to motivate, teach and ultimately improve your child's grades, then Vishal is THE tutor for you.
Subject:
English Language
Outcome:
We expected our daughter to achieve 2 B's for GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature. She received her GCSE results in August 2017 and actually exceeded our expectations with 2 A'

Helpful Tutor

Written by Susan T
I have been having lessons with Vishal for the last 9 months. He helped build me build my confidence in English prior to taking my GCSEs. He worked on the set texts, poems and practice exam questions and was thorough. He was patient, as he didn't mind explaining things to me more than once, as it sometimes takes me a while to understand subject terminology (e.g personification, alliteration, metaphors, similes etc) that I know is so important to getting a good grade.
Subject:
English
Outcome:
I feel more confident going into my exams and my teacher has said that my essay structure has improved. I am going into my exam with the confidence that I can now get an A!

Professional and articulate tutor - GCSE Science (Biology. Chemistry and Physics)

Written by Lisa S
We were looking for a Science tutor who could help our son with all 3 Science subjects (Biology, Chemistry and Physics). We came across a few tutors, but decided to choose Vishal due to his experience of tutoring students and improving their grades within a short time period. He was also different to other tutors, in that he provided feedback to us on my son's progress after every session and provided homework thus enhancing my son's learning. Not many tutors take the time to provide feedback and the fact that he wouldn't just stand up and leave after the 2 hour session (as some tutors do) and instead would spend time answering any questions and providing feedback, meant that we felt comfortable with his approach to teaching. I am immensely grateful for his help!
Subject:
Science
Outcome:
We are so happy with the improvement in our son's grades in just 3 months that we are now considering beginning tutoring lessons with Vishal for our younger son. Thank you once again for all your
