NORTH FINCHLEY TUTORS – ABOUT US
North Finchley Tutors was founded in 2017 and is a collaboration between “10 second Maths” expert, Mr Philip Chan and 11 plus specialist, Ali Baig, widely recognised as one of the best entrance exams teachers. The joint aim of our centre is to provide exceptional supplementary educational classes (private tuition) for children of all ages, from primary school and supporting them all the way up to university entrance level.
After decades of teaching and examining, Chan and Baig realised that teaching within the traditional school system was stifling student creativity, rather than developing a love of learning. This was the starting point of the company. Together, they formed a syllabus – shaped by years of experience – which successfully teaches the skills required to pass examinations but in a personal, accessible and engaging way.
At NFT, we pride ourselves on the quality of education and support we provide. This is not just another business that forces students to cram and memorise facts – this is a support system where we develop every part of the student and empower them to find the best version of themselves. Every lesson and scheme of work at NFT has been created by a range of experts, who all had input to ensure they are of the absolute highest standard. Our sessions are lead by a team of hand picked, fully qualified subject specialists who tailor and adapt each lesson to meet every child’s individual needs. Our experienced private tutors will take the time to observe and mentor each student individually to develop their confidence and ability in subject areas which will ultimately help achieve their unique goals. Working closely with each student, our tutors will identify areas that need the most attention and develop a suitable programme that will improve confidence, technique and ability.
We have tutors from the grammar, state and private sectors and many of them remain teachers today, which gives them insight and up to date, working knowledge of the current curriculum. All tutors are currently teaching in UK state and private schools and are DBS checked.
