About the lesson

Hi,

My name is Jay Thambiah. Please call me Jay. I live in Radlett and have been tutoring in Radlett and the surrounding areas for about 10 years now.

GCSE and A/ Levels.
I am, myself, 11+ selective Grammar School educated
After having tutored for 20 years, I am now developing my web based tutorial college.
I am NOT a school teacher but I am a professional private tutor.
It is because I am a private tutor and not a school teacher that I have particular experience
in rectifying the deficits left by of school teachers and educational establishments.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour for all Years up to GCSE and £40 per hour for A/Levels ( see breakdown list for further details)
I travel to most students and do NOT charge extra for travel.
Special rates are available for sessions involving more than 1 pupil

- Where do you teach?

I live in Radlett, but I can travel pretty much anywhere within about a 5 mile radius. If in doubt please mail or call me. Alternatively you can come to my house. I have a car and travelling is certainly not an issue.
As a guide, I cover the following areas: Radlett, Shenley, Bushey, Watford, Garston, Bricketwood, Park Street, London Colney, St Albans, Elstree, Borehamwood, Arkley, Stanmore, Edgware, Burnt Oak,

- When are you available?

I am able to tutor mainly in the evenings. Some daytimes are also possible. Please feel free to enquire.
I do have a few more places left for anyone taking exams in June 2014
Please drop me a line if in doubt.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I tutor pupils upwards of 9 years of age.
Levels: GCSE, IGCSE, 11+, 13+ 11-16 year olds and Mature Students and Learners.
Adult numeracy and aptitude tests are also topics I specialize in.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, iGCSE, AS, A2, 11+ and 13+

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have both video and audio conferencing facility and online chat. I can also call your phone for free.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My tutoring is very student-focused and my approach to teaching is very animated, exciting and memorable. I know exactly what the strengths and weaknesses of the student are and my lessons are designed to tackle those weaknesses.
However I cannot offer any concrete guarantees about your potential grades. Rather like the old adage of "taking the horse to water", in my experience the outcomes are very much down to the pupil's own attitude towards learning. If a child is willing, wants to learn and does the work I set them, then "miracles" can happen. If, however, the child is only having tuition for their parents' sakes then, alas, nothing will come of it except wasting your time and money.
It is my job to captivate your imagination, enthuse you and offer you knowledge in a way that is uniquely palatable to you. But it is your responsibility to want to be there in the first place.

About Jay

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have tutored pupils from my students days through till today, for about 20 years now.
At all levels ranging from 9 years of age to A/ Levels

The service I provide is completely voluntary, no contracts involved, no obligations and certainly no guarantees are offered or implied and either party can terminate at any time.
All I say is, try me out for a lesson or two and if you like me, we will carry on and if you don't, we won't.
If you are from or around Radlett, the chances are that you may have heard of me already or I may have already taught your friends or their siblings.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No individual can perform a CRB check on themselves! The Government unfortunately does NOT allow it. Only a large body that churns hundreds of applications a year can ask for a CRB check to be done on an individual, such as your council. If you feel strongly about this please write to your local MP to change the law or email this website asking them to process CRB checks on their tutors.

A lot of the CRB related excitement and frenzy, parents get into actually are just that and if you think about it, it does NOT apply to the issue.
I only tutor a child in a house where there is a parent or guardian physically present within eye/ earshot.
For my own safety I do NOT tutor a child alone in their house. I hope this has answered your CRB fears.

- Where and with whom did you train?

The University of London, Cambridge, AEB and EDEXCEL exam boards.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Almost all of my pupils have passed the 11+. I have successfully turned mediocre students into A* students at GCSE and A-Level exams.
My students go to J.F.S, St Helen's, Watford Grammar and Bushey Meads, Haberdasher's, Aldenham School, Loreto College, Emmanuel College and the Parmiters School.
