I have done my BSc (Hons) in Computing and Information Systems with First class honours and since then I am engaged with my subject in the form software development, teaching and training. I have worked as a Java developer and have analysed, designed and implemented many systems from simple database applications to web based enterprise applications. I have tutored numerous school, college and university students in the subject of computer science and particularly programming in Java & Python. I have a passion of my subject and love to share the knowledge with others.
I have many years of experience in teaching Computer Science to undergraduate, A-level, and GCSE students. I am an expert in equipping the learners with the required knowledge and understanding to succeed in the subject and achieve the desired result.
I provide help and guidance on all the components of the subject like the theory topics, programming, and practical project. Teaching different concepts and terminologies with real world examples that can be used to develop practical computing solutions.
I am also a specialist tutor for university students in Computer Science related modules to help them understand different topics and the overall syllabus content.
Arranged and delivered many programming courses at different institutes and academies to train and prepare the students to initiate and build their careers in programming and software development as well as people who want to switch their careers into programming/development.
Conducted numerous teachers training workshops for different schools and colleges when Computer Science was introduced as a new subject in schools curriculums. I have trained many teachers in computer science subjects specifically programming with Python and Java and provides help to understand specifically the AQA and OCR specifications.
I constantly seek ways to improve my teaching skills and philosophies and strive to make and deliver engaging lessons to students with varied background and knowledge on the subject.
I have experience of teaching different UK Computer Science specification some of them are AQA, OCR, Cambridge International AS & A Level (Paper 2 and 4)/Edexcel, any independent boards and any University programming modules at undergraduate level.
For GCSE/A-levels any exam board specification, I am fully familiarize with the latest curriculum and have plenty of experience in teaching the required syllabus content for example:
Computational thinking, algorithms and programming, Computer systems and Programming Project.
Similarly for A-levels provide complete help in understanding and gaining practical knowledge of Programming , Data Structures, Algorithms.
Have more than 8 years of experience in teaching undergraduate students in the Computer Science beside general programming concepts and specifically Object Orientation methodology, Distance Metrics, Recommendation Algorithms, Graphical User Interfaces, Developing Frameworks like (Spring, JBoss(Wildfly), J2EE Jakarta, Django)
Provide first class help and guidance in analysis, design and implementation of the Programming/Software project.
Machine Learning/Deep Learning with Python
Start your journey with me to learn the new and exciting paradigm of programming and build intelligent programs.
To get started, you can pick any of the popular ml/dl frameworks and slowly build your knowledge and enhance your skills: Popular frameworks are:
Currently teaching Computer Science for Data Analysis and Machine Learning that includes different techniques/algorithms as regression, classification, clustering and developing recommendation systems. As well as deep learning to develop deep neural networks for different problems.
- Object Orientation Concepts:
Learn how to use Encapsulation, Inheritance, Abstraction & Polymorphism with practical examples
Specifically designed programming specifications to understand how to use OOP concepts practically in the given problem/scenarios
Other different programming frameworks:
- Java (SE, EE)
- Python (Django, Jupyter, Data Analysis, Machine Learning, Deep Learning)
- C# (Desktop and Web Apps)
- DBMS (MySQL, SQLite, Oracle, PostgresSQL & some others)
For the first session, it went well overall. Thanks
Very helpful in creating shortcuts for complicated questions!
Today was my first class, and we covered more than two topics in one hour and I fully understood everything. Excellent knowledge and shortcuts to learn python!

The lesson was excellent, it is really helping my son and building his confidence in the subject
so far, very easy to understand and well paced teaching, at first I was hesitant, but after a few classes I can easily say he is the best tutor I've had when it comes to computer science.
Helped me prepare for Section D in my exam
Very professional,my daughter feels comfortable with His teaching skills
Very friendly, clear instructions and explanations, ... 100/100!
Shahid was very helpful. Definitely makes intricacies very understandable. Thanks :)
Shahid has been an excellent tutor. His programming knowledge is impressive as demonstrated by solving challenging technical problems such as complex interaction of Java, Python, and MySQL. He is up to date and also has been flexible with time. He always explains what he is programing and teaches as he goes along. Shahid is highly recommended as a Computer Science tutor. It will be difficult to find another person as knowledgeable, flexible, kind, willing to explain everything, and willing to research new up-to-date techniques to implement for various projects.

This was the last of my 10 lessons with Shahid. He has really helped bring me along in my machine learning journey. I started by just knowing the basics of numpy and pandas and progressed week by week to being able to build neural networks to classify the mnist dataset. Each week I got activities to complete at home to reinforce what I had learned in the lesson. We covered many different machine learning algorithms and their uses. Shahid is a great teacher
“Excellent – many thanks for sharing.”
“Very useful and great idea. Thank you.”
“Thank you, a very helpful resource.”

“I am a long time security engineer with an immense frustration with the inability to script. Read a good few Python books . Got the concept. Just couldn’t code. Lead to a lot of frustration . I wen to Shahid’s class . He was able to teach with exercise that made the coding straight forward. Simple examples which got the concept across . Once you get the concept then your’e off. Well one Shahid, excellent course , excellently prepared and delivered. Can’t wait for the advanced one.”

“Pace, scaffolding, smaller group”
“Really clear, the theory was also discussed”
“Tasks with elements of challenge”
“Printouts, good explanation, good assistance”
“Very well, enjoyed the session as I am familiar with Python”
“Broke new concepts down with practice tasks and challenges that scaffold learning. Using examples that pupils can relate to. Building up knowledge where they are writing programs that solve problems”
“You engaged with the class and made everyone feel good even if they did it wrong. You also helped us when we needed help”
(Python and Java Lessons/Sessions)
“Engaging team teaching”
“Good explanations, lots of exercises”
“Good course content, knowledge of topic was very good”
“Friendly, helpful and easy instructions to follow”
