Smriti's last review in Admissions from Aisling: Smriti really helped me with my GMAT quant, she is great at breaking down complicated concepts and making them easy to understand, I was able to grasp areas I have been struggling with for a long time. I would highly recommend her!
I have considerable experience tutoring before for both in-person and online
Over the years , I have spent hundreds of hours teaching ambitious people just like you, who are not getting the support they need in school to achieve their goals
Consequently, I appreciate that every student learns at their own pace and their own style. Some learn best visually, others through analogy
That's why I take the time to speak with you and learn your specific goals, challenges and learning styles
I then tailor my lessons to maximise your progress and help secure the grades you want!
Adam's last completed Admissions job with Yusuf: Over 2 hrs/week - I am applying for PPE at Oxford this year. I have done some TSA past papers and have scored poorly in them. Therefore, I need a significant amount of TSA preparation to boost my TSA score
I am a trained language coach and have studied how to keep students calm in my classes. Being happy allows them to learn faster. Because I am patient and kind, I can give constructive feedback without any judgement, and my students receive the feedback they need without feeling criticised. They respond by engaging in the lessons more, looking forward to them and performing at a higher level. I am efficient. I do not limit myself to standard coursework and books where a student will repeat things they already know and feel dissatisfied. Because I have studied languages myself, I have first-hand experience of this, and I avoid it for my students. I tailor my classes to each student and their particular needs.

In this role I have also interviewed and prepared prospective tutors, ensuring that tutors deliver the best in digital education. I continue to find new ways to encourage students to perform as their most confident selves when faced with an academic challenge or when trying to reach a specified goal, such as entry into a desired college or university. I have a body of experience as a workshop facilitator, including using creative writing and drama to help unlock student’s potential. I do this work on a voluntary basis and have used it to help foster confidence and initiative in young people and adults. My focus is goal orientated whilst maintaining a commitment to a highly individualised approach. This is powerful because the student is met on both an educational and personal level, providing an individual , allowing and em...
