Rachel P – aspiring primary school teacher
As a mature student retraining to be a teacher, I required a tutor to help me refresh my maths knowledge to GCSE level. I was very impressed that Vijay took time to investigate the specific exam that I was required to take and was thoroughly prepared for our sessions. He was organised, reliable and extremely calm. He modelled methods thoroughly and took time to go over areas that I found difficult. He set homework which further supported our sessions. I would thoroughly recommend Vijay as a tutor and believe that his calm manner would equip him to teach students of any age.
Outcome: As a result of Vijay's tutoring, I passed my exam and am now a qualified teacher myself.
Vijay replies: I wish you an enjoyable and successful career in primary teaching, Rachel!
Aida S – mother of 13+ scholarship student (Westminster Challenge)
Excellent tutor and coach - to the Challenge
Vijay is a patient and effective tutor with whom our son managed to build a good rapport and show progress. I would definitely recommend Vijay. We have had great experience with Vijay especially in the run up for the exams. His calm and professional approach prepared our son for the rigorous Challenge exam where he did very well in maths. I don't know how Vijay does it but you can see tangible results straight away. I would recommend Vijay without any reservations.
Vijay replies: Very proud that Tim achieved grade A's in both Maths papers and an Exhibition award! I knew he could do it!
John B – father of IGCSE Maths student
Vijay was a very good teacher for our daughter Yasmina who raised several grades for her Maths Edexcel (Higher) ensuring she was able to have a high enough pass at Maths to do her choice of A-Levels. Vijay is an excellent teacher who gave Yasmina the confidence to do well explaining things well and making good use of past papers.
Outcome: Raised her December mock grades in Maths Edexcel to a 5 (3 grades up) ensuring she has a good pass.
Vijay replies: I'm very proud that Yasmina was pushed to unknown limits, so close to achieving a level 6 in her final exams! I hope the experience has given her more confidence in her abilities. All the best with the A-levels!
Monica L – A-level Maths student
100% Recommended Maths Teacher
Vijay is a highly competent Maths teacher and I can attest to this as he has successfully helped me achieve the grades I want. Vijay explains concepts thoroughly; making complex ideas very easy to grasp. He also has different methods of solving problems which is very helpful as students will have their own preferences.
He is extremely patient, encouraging and professional - he can identify weak points and can cater to his students' needs to help them reach their maximum potential.
I highly recommend Vijay to anyone who needs a Math tutor because he goes out of his way for his students!
Outcome: A* for A-Level Mathematics - couldn't have done it without his excellent teaching!
Vijay replies: August 2020 - Congratulations on your place at the LSE! You will need your Maths training for your degree course ☺️
Corinne L – GCSE Maths student
Vijay tutored me for my maths GCSE's. I'd always struggled with maths and found it incredibly intimidating. When put on the spot in school I'd get nervous and this made things even worse. Vijay was lovely to work with and made me feel at ease.
Outcome: I went from an E grade (in my mock GCSE's) to a B, the highest grade achievable on the intermediate tier so I was very pleased! I'd definitely recommend him.
Vijay replies: One of my very first students! Congratulations on your career as an amazing Animation Director! I love your short film "Ernesto"! This is where Maths can lead you... www.corinneladeinde.com ☺️
Helen G – mother of A-level Maths student
Calm consistent excellent
It has been such a pleasure to have calm, consistent, patient help for my daughter. No fuss just quiet and excellent tuition. He has a genuine interest and understanding of the subject, and thorough experience of the curriculum and exam boards. My daughter really benefitted and her understanding of maths developed and her confidence grew. Vijay was very student centred, would take home difficult questions and return to explain. We will miss him!
Outcome: My daughter got an A, and only a few marks off an A*
Vijay replies: Many congratulations on Minka's place to study Medicine!
Annette P – mother of A-level Maths student
Excellent Maths Tutor
Vijay has been an incredible Maths tutor (A level) for my son and I would recommend him without hesitation. He is patient, thorough, great at explaining and thought provoking. My son's predicted A level grade went from a D to a B in 8 months. He's just finished his exams so won't know final grade until August. Whatever the outcome, one of the most important changes for me was seeing the improved confidence in my son. He went from doubting himself to believing he could do really well.
Outcome: Improved confidence. Predicted grade went from a D to a B. Final results still to be confirmed.
Vijay replies: August 2019 - Congratulations on surviving these exceptionally challenging Edexcel exams! Very pleased you got into your first choice university! All the best!
Jade E – undergraduate Statistics support
Hi All Fellow Learners
I am a South African finishing my degree long distance from the UK.
I was desperate for help with stats! As I had never done maths. Everything was new to me. Thank goodness I found Vijay.
He was patient and calm. He explained everything in a simple way. He also prepared for our lessons, which saved loads of time. He made suggestions on which calculator to use and trained and taught me how to use it and apply everything I learnt in the exam.
Most of all I appreciated him following up by text on how I was progressing, his messages before and after my exam were also appreciated.
I fully recommend Vijay as he is a competent tutor who goes out of his way for his students. Stats/maths.
I passed my module with a distinction!
Best of luck to all!
Vijay replies: Congratulations Jade on an outstanding result - you really worked hard for it! A pleasure to have helped!
Mother of IGCSE/Further Maths student
Vijay is a fabulous maths tutor. He is always well-prepared and turns up on time. Without fail he helped my son understand the trickier aspects of maths and further maths GCSE with superb results (grade 9 in both in June 2022 exams). He is highly competent and able to explain principles in different ways until a pupil 'gets it'. I cannot recommend Vijay highly enough.
Outcome: Top grades first time
Vijay replies: 10 level 9s and 1 level 8... simply mind-blowing! Congratulations to JM on his spectacular results; he worked so hard for them!
Amanda M – mother of GCSE Maths student
Understanding Maths at last!
I wish we had found Vijay sooner! My daughter enjoyed her sessions so much that she recommended him to a friend. He is friendly and professional, efficient and organised and with a natural ability in teaching. He explained things clearly and in a way that made sense which led to a greater understanding of maths where there had been so many gaps in learning throughout several years. Vijay's method of teaching worked so well for our daughter that her maths confidence grew and grew and she surprised herself with her GCSE result.
Thank you Vijay
Outcome: 3 grades higher than predicted at GCSE and a genuine enjoyment of maths which was never the case before her sessions with Vijay.
Vijay replies: Congratulations on level 8! FM really bought into the project and worked amazingly hard. It was a pleasure to see her evolve into a strong mathematician!
