Believing that understanding is the key to success as opposed to merely learning, Mr Abbas has endeavoured to improve his teaching style at every possible opportunity. With a view to taking his teaching role to a profesional level, Mr Abbas has anticipated furthering his qualifications in clinical teaching.
As Mr Abbas himself states:
"Quite simply, I teach because I enjoy it. I predominantly teach GCE Advanced level Biology and Chemistry, although due to high levels of demand I have now purseud teaching GCSE level Science and Mathematics too.
My interests reflect my past pursuits as a Student Ambassador at Imperial College London in the promotion of STEM subjects as well as the Stdudent Associate Scheme. I have a long-standing history of teaching and developing young adults through my roles as a Private Tutor and Assistant Manager for one of the UK’s leading health and beauty retailers.
I have a special interest in supporting students with personal statements for university applications for professional, science-based degrees including Dentistry, Medicine and Phamrmacy. I hold an active role in delivering seminars tailored for medical applications.
My name is Zaheer Abbas and I teach on the principles that Understanding is Learning.
Mr Abbas is also active in delivering talks and seminars to young adults at school and college on various topics, including his Medical Applications Seminar (The MAS).
As a guest speaker, Mr Abbas has delievered many talks on health topics to various groups. He is actively engaged with the community as an individual and as a volunteer for Age Concern UK, a charity for the over 50's, Probus and the U3A.
If you would like any further information on tutoring or to make a booking for a talk, please contact us at the clinic.

Introduction to AOC
Zaheer has been my tutor for 2 years throughout my college life. It has been a very pleasant and exciting experience working with him. And I couldn't have asked for any better tutor than Zaheer. He didn't only teach me but he also gave me the discipline to answer the exam questions and understand what the examiners are looking for. After spending countless hours understanding the dynamic of exam techniques, I ended up with A*, A, A. And now I'm studying medicine. And I couldn't have achieve this without Zaheer. So Thank you Zaheer for these 2 years!
Our son has been having lessons with Zaheer for nearly a year now and has greatly benefitted from Zaheer's interactive teaching style and knowledge. Not only have our son's grades improved in both A-Level Biology and Chemistry but he has really enjoyed the lessons too.
We would like to thank Zaheer for his dedication and professionalism as well as the calm and polite manner in which he always conducts himself. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Zaheer as an outstanding tutor.

Zaheer is a professional, complete tutor for AS Biology. With his in depth knowledge of the human anatomy and flexibility to teach various different exam boards, he makes the one of the best tutors. His experience in the field of tutoring helps those of all abilities. He was particularly useful with my application to do medicine at university. With his experience personally and as a tutor he helped me craft a competitive personal statement and guidance throughout my application. His professionalism and dedication to tutoring has helped me through college gaining top marks. The locality and competitive prices makes him one of the best tutors in my opinion
