Thanks to veteran educator and founder of Prime Tutorial Orpington, Dr. Sadanand Joshi, students in and around Orpington, Bromley have been successfully seeking University admissions of their choice for years. Our education correspondent finds out more in conversation with him.
Thousands of students currently received their A-level results and have received their University offers or going through adjustments. For most, this will mark the beginning of a new chapter in their lives – finding out if they really got a place at their University of first choice, or if they need to seek other alternatives.
Spearheaded by veteran educator Dr. Sadanand Joshi, Prime Tutorial Orpington (www.primetutorial.co.uk) in Bromley, Greater London has been supporting pupils in graduating with flying colours in their GCSE and A-level examinations, since it was founded in 2011. Starting with only two students then, the Centre currently aids more than a hundred students each year, in realising their dream of claiming a seat in reputable Universities through extra tutoring and support. The students hail from various Independent, State and Comprehensive Schools, from Bromley, Orpington, Langley Park and more, and a varied background.
While waiting at the Centre at St. Johns United Reformed Church in Orpington, we met couple of students who spoke to us about their experience with Prime Tutorial Orpington, Bromley. A Year 12 student from Ravenswood School said, “Maths was my weakness and I used to think this is the toughest subject until I found a nice maths tutor here. Now I am confident that I will get good grades on my A-Levels and I do not fear maths anymore”. Another KS4 student, a Year 10 at a local Grammar School mentioned how ecstatic she was about her tutor. She said “I used to be miles away from reading books and so my English was poor. I was provided with some interesting books to read at first, and I got hooked. I think the best with Prime Tutorial Orpington, Bromley is they don’t force us to do something; rather encourage us to grow an interest in doing what we are supposed to be doing.”
Positive reviews from students aside, the institute bears testament to the quality of education it provides through the brilliant results exhibited by their students. All A-Level students from Prime Tutorial Orpington got the requisite grades or better for admission into the University of their first choice, some of them are part of the elite and esteemed Russell Group. In fact, 5 of the students who scored less than 40% marks in Physics, Chemistry and Maths, got into such prestigious universities as Exeter and Strathclyde, thanks to the support and nurturing they got at Prime Tutorial Orpington.
All of this melts down to the decades of valuable experience carried by Dr. Joshi and his team of co-tutors. With a teaching experience of close to 30 years, Dr. Joshi, an ex-Professor at the University of Strathclyde himself, has also previously worked as an Ofsted Inspector as well as a subject lead and head of department in numerous schools and colleges he has been a part of in his long and illustrious career. Besides, his team includes co-authors of various textbooks used at GCSE and A-levels, providing an extra edge to the faculty which goes further in aiding the students enrolled at Prime Tutorial Orpington.
A University admission, especially to a reputed University, needs an extremely strong grasp of the subjects at GCSE and A-levels as well as good grades. And while premium universities like the Russell Group as well as the government are doing their bit to extend help to every section of the society and to as many students as possible, it really comes down to the parents to encourage and facilitate the progress of their wards and ensure they get what they deserve. It thus becomes imperative to find an institution that understands and helps pupils progress in the right direction.
In this regard, Dr. Joshi spoke to us about his own philosophy with reference to education and teaching. He told us, “Parents need to understand their child, and try to find out his or her interest, rather than directing them towards a profession.” On probing further on what brings him the most satisfaction, he revealed, “when a student comes to me with below average results and then we see them achieve great results at GCSE or A-level exams through their sheer hard work and our help that is an absolute pleasure for me.”
His institute currently aids students from various state and comprehensive schools like, Bishop Justus CE School, Bullers Wood, Charles Darwin, Coopers, Hayes Schools as well as Independents as, Ashgrove, Eltham, Farringtons Schools, to name a few.
When probed further, Dr. Joshi revealed his future plans for expanding and opening an independent sixth form college. He intends to offer the full range of A-level subjects, with a special attention to Music, Drama and Arts, often overlooked by many in favour of other subjects. He is currently looking out for a bigger place to support the influx of new students due for enrolment in 2019 for year 10 to year 11 transition and year 12 to year 13 transition.
