About Me

Chess teacher
Lecturer
Psychologist

‘ Chess as a life model’ serves to provide a perfect foundation to help in a child’s and adult's establishment of those first small goals by which their future academic and professional lives shall come to be channeled, definitively ensconcing those fundamental attributes of time management and lasting vision, by which a firm and enduring purpose may be lastingly made incarnate.

The programme’s itinerary consists of the following:

• Consummate instruction in the art of Chess play.
• A detailed history of Chess and its global significance.
• Detailed insights into the strategies, tactics and nuance of Chess and of its social allegories.
• Explanation of Chess theory and the successful habits of leading Grand Masters.
• Employment of virtual Chess models and game situations to encourage the development initiative and lateral thinking.
• Professional chess masterclasses



In addition, the program me is complemented by informal lessons in drawing and modelling, with the change of pace as facilitated in such a variety of activity, contributing to a balanced enhancement of cognition in both junior and senior students.


By the positive emotional atmosphere that is enjoyed by pupils during lessons, this last element serves as the final step towards safeguarding that consummate inculcation of all knowledge gleaned and learned, which may then, in turn, be readily applied within the sphere of everyday life.

I am Mavi, a physics engineer working at an aerospace company. I have been teaching private lessons at the primary, secondary, high school, and university preparatory levels for 9 years. I teach mathematics, physics, chemistry, and science. I have a good command of the curricula of IB, IGCSE, American, Hong Kong, and international schools. Additionally, I hold the position of president at the Astronomy Society, where I foster my students' interest in astronomy and science beyond the lessons. I prepare the learning environment by incorporating experiments and exploration, moving away from rote education. I often bring experimental materials to class, aiming to make learning memorable through hands-on experiments. As an educational mentor, I approach my students as if they were my siblings, valuing creativity. I have a deep passion for mathematics, physics, and science. I am dedicated to helping students understand and learn because life encompasses both SCIENCE and ART. The more people I can inspire to know, understand, and love mathematics, physics, and chemistry, the more proud I am. Are you curious about how nature works? Let's explore together!

As a mathematics teacher who has taught students in the UK for over 5 years, I offer mathematics tutoring courses at home for: College or high school students of iGCSE, GCSE, A-Level, T-Level or equivalent The 3rd, 4th and 5th Key Stages of English and British Education My goal is to help students to: Improve their level Deepen their knowledge Fill in their gaps Excel their exams How my lessons work: My teaching style is unique. I tend to first help the student with homework issues, then I give a few starter questions based on things we did last lesson for memory retention, and then we delve into the lesson based on the topics the student struggles in. I understand the content of the exam boards, especially AQA and Edexcel and how the highest marks are collected. Depending on the student's age, I will give them exam papers as preparation for their final exams, and I do set homework but only do this if a student understands the content I teach them. At the beginning of the session, I will clarify what I expect from the student. My lessons are an hour long, but they are 2 hours for exam prep.
