    As a parent I can see a big difference within my children's learning for instance the higher levels in their confidence and being able to expand on their knowledge. I would definitely recommend Abbas to any other parent or student.

    My daughter started preparing for the 11+ plus relatively late. She was not far off the required standard but she needed some targeted tuition. She has made a remarkable improvement in her performance since starting with Abbas. He is a good tutor, and gives feedback to me about my daughter when I come to collect her . He also recommended some important 11+ learning resources that my daughter found most helpful. I would happily recommend Abbas to anyone preparing for the 11+.

    Personally I feel that Abbas truly helped me in English and guided me through every aspect of English ensuring I understood all topics. From an inconsistent student achieving an average of 5’s and 6’s, I attained an 8 and a 7 in GCSE language and literature. With his help and motivation I was able to switch my mindset and truly focus on what I needed to do to achieve high grades. He also showed me that English wasn’t just long boring essays but rather something much more interesting. In conclusion, he is a great teacher and I thank him for the support he has given me.

    My english skills have developed massively thanks to Abbas in the time he has spent with me. He taught me to use sophisticated vocabulary and how to structure essays and stories which were vital for my English GCSEs. In my year 11 mock I achieved a 5 in English Language but today I received a 7 in both English Language and English Literature.

    I was a student who struggled in school, I would always be the one that was taken out of extra curricular activities for intervention but it never really worked out that well to help me. Until one day I met Abbass Karimjee; suddenly in 6 months my school grades went up so rapidly and I quickly went from being the person who always needed help and instead became the go-to person who others would always ask to help. Now I am the one often chosen by teachers to explain concepts and that is the impact that he has made in my life. He gave me the confidence to be able to tackle any topic or challenge.

    At the end of yr10 after failing my english mocks, my parents were very anxious about whether i was going to pass. So they signed me up for a tutor and a really good one to be truthful. With the great help of Abbass through questions from past papers and many unique pieces of revision material i managed to pass and it gave me the confidence i need to keep me going in the future, i seriously couldn’t recommend him more.
