I specialize in cramming and exam techniques, which I have been teaching at MPW (a private Collage in Kensington since 2009). With my experiences as an examiner and as a research scientist I am able to guide students to ace their coursework and point out what the examiners are looking for.
I love teaching and get a real buzz when my students excel.

My students have outstanding results. Most students have said I had helped them improve their grades.
Here are some recommendations from my past students:

Dear Salma,
Thank you so much for teaching me this year and last year! I couldn’t have done it without you.
I ended up achieving A*A*A*A*A in biology, chemistry, maths, EPQ and further maths respectively and found that your lessons played a crucial role in my achieving an A* in biology. They helped me so much with exam technique, which I had struggled with previously, and also in terms of knowing which key points to remember. I am also grateful to have been sent your handouts, which were really useful for my revision and also found that the comprehensive packs of exam questions you gave me every week were so helpful when I was further consolidating knowledge from our sessions. I also especially loved your suggestions to get involved in learning the subject beyond the syllabus and this has helped cultivate my passion for biology. As a result, I will go on to study Biological Natural Sciences at Cambridge and will always remember and be very grateful all you have done for me!
Thank you so much once again!

Salma helped me to pull up my A level Biology grade from a C to an A.
I would definitely recommend her Easter revision course; it is long hours but it is worth it as you cover the whole two year course in one week.
For those who need a little bit more help getting to grips with the content, Salma is the perfect tutor as she provides detailed revision notes and ensures students fully understand concepts so they can apply their knowledge to paper three questions on scenarios outside the textbook.

Thank you for all of your help,
Olivia Mahele

Salma has honestly been a massive help for my Biology A Level. Every session has been very valuable through the use of her exam board specific handouts and exam questions I have grasped many key concepts in biology and improved my grades as a result of her excellent tutoring. Thank you so much for all the support and improving my confidence in biology through which I will be forever grateful.
Ebony Wynter

I will be forever indebted to Salma. She is a miracle in human form. She took me from an AS grade of a D to a B on the first Year 13 mock exam; after that I was able to continue with constant Bs and was even able to achieve As only months after starting with Salma.
She not only has given me love for a subject that I used to hate, but she has also given me the confidence of knowing that I will finish the year with an A* in Biology. Thank you Salma, even though a thank you is not enough.

- Maria Z.

I am a second-year A-Level student and having had Salma since September for Biology, I am very pleased with the style of teaching and her in-depth knowledge of the subject. Her notes are excellent which covers aspects beyond the course to ensure the topic is fully understood, the lessons are well prepared and are catered to my needs in the hope of achieving an A grade in Biology. As a tutor, she is approachable, patient and always available for advice.

Being tutored by Miss Siddiqui was the best decision I made to help me improve my A level biology grade. She has a very positive attitude and was always determined to help me understand any topics I was not clear about. The persistent repetition of topics was most important in order to ingrain the knowledge that is sorely required in biology in order to do well. This consisted of: question and answer sessions, going through exam questions, discussing real life scenarios and most importantly going through Miss Siddiqui notes which were an invaluable resource to me.
The lessons were very concise, and Miss Siddiqui ensured that my exam technique was spot on; her years of experience really helped when tackling questions I was not sure how to answer. Her lessons helped me feel more confident about biology and when by the time I sat the last exam I felt fully prepared than years of the past.
I would not hesitate to recommend Miss Siddiqui as she is a great tutor.
Many Thanks
Armin

Dear Salma,
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping Feena achieve such a wonderful result in her Biology A Level. We have no doubt that it was down to your teaching that she pulled herself up from a predicted low grade C to a high B.
Take good care and many thanks again,
Aisling.
