TESTIMONIALSA Level KS3 and GCSE KS2 KS1
Without the support of my tutor, Zohreh, I could not be able to pass my GCSE maths. I only passed my December mock paper in maths with the grade 2/3. With Zohreh's support I achieved the grade 5 at foundation level in June examination. Zohreh is a kind, dedicated and hardworking tutor. I would recommend her 100%.
Erin, Shirley, Croydon

After a length searcher a Maths tutor for our daughter Nyima, we found Zohreh, she improved her overall confidence in Maths and in general. She contributed enormously in achieving a pass grade in her Maths GCSE. Zohreh is highly recommended.

I started working with Zohreh 5 months before my Maths GCSE. I had achieved a D in my mock exam and I needed help to boost my mark up to be able to continue with what I wanted to do at A level at a good sixth form. Zohreh worked with me very well over the 5 months and was a calm and collected teacher who never minded going through exercises slowly if I needed, she also made me familiar with what the examiner wanted. I achieved a grade C in my maths GCSE and due to Zohreh's help I am now continuing on with what I want to do in my desired sixth form, Thank you!
Thank you so much for your help with tutoring my daughter at GCSE maths this year. You gave her confidence when she was doubting herself, and helped her to understand the topics that she struggled with. She worked hard for her grade, and, with your guidance and suggestions fully deserved the solid "A" grade that she achieved. Thank you.
This is a statement about my experience of my son's tuition with Zohreh. My son was keen to progress maths and science in his continuing education but as exams were coming closer it was felt he needed additional support to push what was a lucky C into a higher more consistent grade. Jarod had 13 sessions of tuition with Zohreh in little over two months. AS a result of the tuition Jarod developed a greater confidence in his ability and was able to focus on the areas that he found most challenging rather than his previous technique of sticking to what he knew. He was also helped by one to one tuition where things were explained to him in terms he could understand the importance of key terms that he had to know for the exams. The undertaking of past papers at home to review in the sessions also prepared him better for the exam. It is important to stress that Jarod was given a lot of this information by school, at home and through family members but Zohreh's approach made him understand why this was necessary and he was able to see the results at first hand which led him push himself to achieve "B". I thank Zohreh for her valuable support for my son in the most crucial period to GCSE exam.

I hired Zohreh as a maths tutor for my son, James, as I wanted him to improve his GCSE maths. He had achieved "U" in his year 10 maths test. Tuition was carried out from August 2015- June 2016 and as a result James achieved a grade "B" in his GCSE maths. James liked his tuition with Zohreh for the fact that tuition on various topics was clear and she would praise James for his good work and progress. We are very pleased with the result and grateful to Zohreh for her hard work.
Caroline, Gravel Hill, Croydon
My Daughter Amie always had low confidence in maths but really benefited from having Zohreh teach her. Zohreh was always very calm and explained things really well and praised Amie for her efforts. She was always interested in what my daughter enjoyed in school and out of school which made Amie feel relaxed with her. Zohreh took time to email work to her to help with exam preparation, Amie achieved her predicted grade and was overjoyed. I would highly recommend Zohreh to other students.
Debbie, Gravel Hill Village, Croydon
Zohreh was very welcoming and flexible when it came to tutoring me. From the start she encouraged me and instilled a lot of belief and support in me. She made learning maths easy to understand. I had two tries at my maths exam and she helped me tremendously so much so that I gained a C in the second time around! Zohreh is very good at what she does and knows how to engage her students which I found really helpful! I am so grateful I got in contact with Zohreh and would have no else help me as she is a superstar! Thank you Zohreh! Ella aged 24 (teacher training student)
Ella, Addiscombe, Croydon
Our daughter really lacked confidence in maths and we got fed up trying to encourage and support her when she was so anti. Zohreh was like a breath of fresh air, structuring our daughter’s work, and really focusing on her mental work. Zohreh made sure our daughter got the basics by adopting a disciplined, methodical approach to learning combined with a good mix of enthusiasm and realism. In almost no time of practicing times tables and basic maths functions in her head, she went from being really negative about maths to being confident and assured. She got a level 5 in her recent SATs tests and had been working reasonably comfortably at that level for a while. As well as teach our daughter well, Zohreh was very generous in her time and offering feedback and suggestions for improvement. Thank you Zohreh. Brian & Mary
Mary and Brian, Purley
Dear Zohreh Hugo got 7A*and 2 As so he is very pleased. He got an A*in his GCSE maths, so big thanks to You! He enjoyed your lessons and it helped him with topics he had found difficult before. Once again thank you so much.

I was tutored by Mrs Ingram over the past three years. My mother and I found her via her website in September 2011. I had passed my year 10 maths test with a low mark and my confidence in the subject was very low. After a couple of lessons with Mrs Ingram I realised she was a well qualified and very experienced maths teacher. She was also very pleasant and patient and had no qualms to explain a method or solution several times until I could grasp the method. She always encouraged me to ask questions when/if I was confused with a solution. Mrs Ingram knew how to break down the GCSE maths topics in smaller parts in such a way that the topic was understandable. With consistent practice and homework she gave me I became better in my school work, therefore my confidence improved and I started to enjoy maths. I passed my GCSE maths with the grade B and since I felt so confident in myself I took the subject at A level. Mrs Ingram helped me through my AS and A2 in such a way that I developed good knowledge and understanding of the subject. In addition to teaching the subject Mrs Ingram helped me to develop my exam techniques to solve maths problems in time constraint of exam period. I cannot stress enough how valuable her support, encouragement and teaching were in helping me pass my Alevel maths. Now that I have passed my Alevel maths I am off to university to take a degree course in mathematical subjects. My maths tutor is truly highly knowledgable in her subject as well as being inspirational and supporting to her pupils. Thank you very much Mrs Ingram for what you did for me.
Hi zohreh yes we picked up Alfie's results and he got 1 A in history and 7 B's one of those was Maths. Thank you so much for everything you have done for Alfie.
Zohreh has a very good understanding of children, the school system and conveying maths in a stress free way. Zohreh worked with our son Raul under 2yrs and transformed his understanding and appreciation for maths in a way that we did not expect. Raul achieved the level 5 in his KS2 SATS test taken in May and we are very happy with his result.
Amanda, Thornton Heath
Zohreh, thank you for all the help you gave my daughter, Naomi. You were unbelievably patient and kind. As you know Naomi hated maths & had zero confidence when she first came to you, you encouraged her & really made her believe she could improve. She has just got a maths SATS level we know she could not have achieved without your support. Naomi actually likes maths now! We are grateful.
Emma, Addiscombe, Croydon
Thank you so much for the tuition you gave Matthew for the rigorous IGCSE exam where he achieved an A. Matt was not quite getting the attention he needed at school to achieve this level and you were instrumental in ensuring all of the syllabus was covered and that he was conversant with it to a high degree. You were patient and understanding and yet able to progress him to the pass mark that will hold him in good stead throughout his life.
Clive , South Croydon
I have been extremely satisfied with Zohreh's teaching. She has helped tutor my son through the grammar school entrance tests with great success, I highly recommend her teaching.
I have never met such a patient and dedicated teacher as Zohreh. She has given my daughter Hannah so much more confidence in a subject that she was struggling with. Zohreh taught my daughter to focus and to believe that she can achieve. Hannah has just won an award at school for most improved pupil in maths. We wouldn't have achieved this without Zohreh's lessons. We are now awaiting SATS results for the year 6 with great hopes for high school. I would highly recommend Zohreh to any parent.
We are grateful to you tutoring our son, Efe. You helped Efe who was reluctant to bring the best out of himself to achieve his goals in GCSE. His GCSE maths result was "A" and we believe he could not have done it without the help/tutoring of Mrs Zohreh. We have decided to continue with Mrs Zohreh tutoring Efe's Aslevel Maths. I will recommend Mrs Zohreh to anyone who is interested in using her to tutor their children.
Uyi and Bimbo, Selsdon
Our daughter was low in confidence in maths and in her mock she achieved a D grade. Zohreh prepared our daughter during year 11 and her teaching methods were effective in giving our daughter much needed confidence and learning how to enjoy maths and to do things simply so much so she achieved an "A" In her GSCE this year. I would recommend Zohreh without hesitation.
I really enjoyed being taught by Zohreh. She was patient and I really benefitted from her calm and professional style of teaching. Zohreh covered the whole syllabus and would always go over any areas I had difficulty with. She increased my confidence and knowledge in the subject and in the end my final result was two grades higher than predicted, as I had been predicted a "D" but achieved a "B". I was delighted. Kind regard Kiera

We are extremely grateful to Zohreh teaching our daughter Emma, AS Level Maths. Emma had a lot of problems with her AS level maths when she started the course in September 2011. Zohreh started teaching her in January 2012 and within a few months Emma's grades in maths tests started to improve. In June examination, 2012, Emma achieved 2A's and a B in her AS level maths papers. We still can't believe our daughter's success and wish to express our deepest gratitute to Zohreh for her consistent patience and hard work.
Joanne Leitch, Purley
Zohreh has given my son the theoretical support required to do well. This year (2012) he successfully obtained level 5 SATS in Maths. She always encourages him to work and do his best. Thank you for your assistance and continued support.
K. Edwards, Thornton Heath
My son, who is 12 years old, was a bit low in confidence when it came to solving maths problems. We are so delighted to have had the privilege of introducing him to Mrs Ingrams during the end of 2011. Mrs Ingram not only helped him immensely with his confidence but also taught him important concepts within a short time span. She is a dedicated, focussed and caring teacher.

Dear Mrs Ingram, just to let you know how grateful we are for the enormous assistance you have provided in helping Daniel achieve his full potential without which Daniel would have not got his A*'s in his GCSE maths units exams.
Paola Moth, Croydon
We are very pleased that Mrs. Ingram has been able to help our daughter achieve GCSE A grade in Mathematics. We are fortunate to have found a dedicated, helpful and caring Maths teacher, whom our daughter thinks highly of. We have no reservations at all in recommending her to you.
Mr and Mrs Rahim, West Croydon
Ashley has always had poor prediction by her maths teachers since primary school. When Ashley got into secondary school the outlook was just as dismal. This did not help Ashley's confidence at all and so learning maths became a struggle. Six months before her GCSE�s I contacted Zohreh to help tutor Ashley in Maths. The aim was to get her to pass the subject but also if possible to boost her confidence so she could do even better. Three months after Zohreh�s tutoring Ashley mock GCSE exam result was a C; a big improvement from the E she got in the exam before that. Her GCSE result was a B and Ashley is so confident with Maths now, she is taking it at A Level. Thank you to Zohreh for her persistence and incredible teaching skills, which obviously played a big part in Ashley�s success.
Charlotte got an A in Maths! Thank you so much for your help. You provided a calm, kind and consistent support for Charlotte at a time just when she needed it.This has meant so much to her as she can definitely do Psychology for A level.I will certainly recommend you and again thank you.
Emma, South Croydon
Zohreh has worked with my son, Joshua, for a year. We contacted her because he had begun to slip in his grades in year 5. By February 2011, JOshua was offered a place at Whitgift School. After Joshua started lessons with Zohreh, He began to make significant improvements in his work. She provided him with sound strategies in maths that helped to raise his confidence in the subject. At times I overheard Zohreh conducting Joshu's lesson. She was passionate in her praise of him but also held high expectations of him which, in turn motivated him to produce answers that were both accurate and timely. Zohreh was a very reliable tutor and always found the time to provide a useful analysis of Joshua's performance at the end of the lesson. He did not see his lessons as a burden - in fact, he felt very fortunate to have had Zohreh and commented to me that she is was the best tutor that he has worked with. We are delighted that Joshua has been accepted by Whitgift and believe that Zohreh's input made a significant difference. It is also important to note that even though Joshua has taken a break from tutoring over the past two months, he has managed to maintain his high grades. I accredit this to the strategies and confidence that he gained from Zohreh. I would highly recommend her. Mrs A Silverstone 20/02/11

I contacted Mrs Ingram to tutor my daughter as she started in year 4. She was having a lot of trouble with her confidence in class which meant that she wasn't progressing at the level that I knew she could. I didn't know anyone who had a maths tutor already, and so did an internet search of tutor agencies. I was looking for someone who had a good knowledge of the Key stage 2 curriculum but who would go back to basics to build confidence and speed up again. Mrs Ingram taught Madeleine from Year 4 through to her SATs in Year 6, where I am delighted to say that Madeleine achieved a grade 5. Mrs Ingram was extremely patient with Madeleine. She was firm but so full of praise when needed. Madeleine was reticent to have a tutor at first but came to enjoy her lessons, often relishing in the challenges posed by Mrs Ingram. Mrs Ingram always had an abundance of time to speak to me after the lesson as to Madeleine's progress and what could be completed in the week ahead before the next lesson. She was always punctual, polite and I would have no qualms about recommending her to other potential students.
Mrs A. Atack, W.Wickham
Zohreh started tutoring Rehana one to one just over 3 months ago. The lesson is once a week for an hour. Rehana didn't enjoy maths at school, to say the least, which was the reason for me bringing a tutor in to help her with the basics. Zohreh started with the very basics in addition and subtraction and explained various ways to help her understand the methods and checking her work. She gave her homework to do every week and advised me to do maths at home with Rehana for about 15-20 minutes a day. This has really helped Rehana in picking up the basics and move through to Times tables and division. I am very happy to say that Rehana knows all her Times tables now and has received a certificate from her class because she got every single answer correct in a class test (50 questions) which really boosted her confidence. I would say this was made possible by Zohreh's tutoring skills. Rehana is now moving on to multiplication, division, decimals and percentages and the academic year is looking much more positive. The school has said how much more confident Rehana has become since the private tuition has been in place. Zohreh is a brilliant teacher and she ensures that the lesson time is utilised in the best way possible for Rehana.Zohreh is very patient and is very thorough in her tutoring. I feel that Rehana is starting to enjoy maths and is becoming more confident as each day goes by thanks to Zohreh

Zohreh started tutoring my son, Tiran in August 2009. Prior to that Tiran, at year 3 , had enormous difficulties with performing addition, subtraction and times tables and even struggled adding very small numbers. Zohreh started the maths work at a very basic level allowing Tiran to use his fingers to add up giving the correct answers and Tiran gradually recognised and learnt the basics of addition and subtraction. After a few weeks the tutor moved on to teaching the times tables, division and multiplication. After few months, I could see the enormous progress Tiran had made and although he was not 100 % fluent in his maths work his progress had been very positive. His school teacher was pleased with his progress and Tiran was motivated to have his private tuition. One of the good points of the tutor is she is patient to repeat a small part several times. My son receives regular homework and he accepts the discipline enforced by the tutor to do his homework and applies the required efforts to get results correctly. My son , at year 4 now, is continuing his tuition with Zohreh and we are looking forward to the future with confidence that he will gain better understanding and skills in maths in the coming academic year.
