He has regularly been rated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED who have commented on his ability to demonstrate pupils progress in his lessons. He prides himself on including EAL students and for creating a stimulating learning environment where the complexity of science is unfolded with ease. Mahesh is well known for his ‘Fast Track’ revision courses for IGCSE and IB Diploma students, which enable his students to be well-prepared for exams.
