11 Plus, 13 Plus, Other School Entrance and Maths

School entrance experience

Raj has worked with children aiming to attend the following schools:

I've lost count how many successes I've had over the years but it's probably six or seven each year. This includes entry into Oxbridge, private schools (such as Canford and Bryanston) and local Grammar Schools - including my own daughter!

Raj's biography:

Raj has a very strong Mathematical background having studied for degrees in Mathematics at Keele University (BA Hons) and Oxford University (MSc), and has over 35 years teaching experience in Private Schools, Grammar Schools and Colleges.

He has provided private tuition also for about 35 years now, and has had literally hundreds of successful students credited to his record over that time. This includes helping many students get into Oxbridge, Private Schools and Grammar Schools (including his own daughter). He has also taught Christian Bale - the actor who played Batman!

He has a tremendous passion for Maths and likes to make Maths fun and accessible to all. Students find him very approachable, patient and easy to learn from. He prides himself in providing first class tuition through his years of experience and excellent subject knowledge. Having set many exams over the years he also teaches students precisely how to answer exam questions to maximise their marks.

Many of his students have gone on to Oxbridge or Russell Group and other top universities. The vast majority of his younger pupils have gained entry to top Independent Schools.

He caters for all levels and all ages : Basic Maths, Entrance Exams, 11+, 13+, SATs, GCSE, AS/A Level, Further Maths, IB, etc. He taught for 5 Years at Sherborne (Boys) School, 20 Years at Bournemouth Grammar School and 9 years at an Independent College in Bournemouth as a Maths Teacher and Head of Statistics.

In the years I worked with Rajiv, he always exhibited an outstanding subject knowledge of mathematics, was innovative in his methods of teaching and taught with constructive humour. He was very conscientious in keeping his I T knowledge up to date and was able to integrate it into his teaching with considerable success. He was always supportive of colleagues and was a constructive and successsful member of our teaching team. Rajiv was much in demand as a tutor during that time and I note from my contact with him in recent times he has continued to successfully maintain his tutoring career.
