ICAEW ACA Tutor with over 10 years of experience effective pass rate 98%, available 24/7 7 days a week* based in Central London assisting pre-dominantly big 4 audit/tax trainees. Also teach ICAS, ACCA

Methodology

Having tutored since 2008, I have come across students with different needs and mindsets. Experience of over 10 years in the industry has made me an "outlier". I relate to my students & personally make sure to keep in touch with them almost everyday to ensure if they have any question regarding past papers, exam kit or question bank, I am there to answer.

The most important ingredient to pass these professional exams is "time management'. Half of the battle is to complete the exam keeping consistent with the terminology/calculations what examiner expects from each applicant.

My involvement in the process is to make sure I keep an eagle eye on my tutees, pushing them to the limits to gain higher marks with the help of deliberate practice and making the whole experience as enjoyable as I could.

Coupled with technical knowledge & effective exam techniques which are continuously shifted to the tutees will not only get them passes, but will also get them to the category of high achievers.
75% - 80% plus is quite normal among my tutees.

I am very patient and committed to my students. I firmly believe in assessing the student's understanding on a particular subject, level of competence and then hitting the high notes, giving top priority to exam techniques, question bank and past papers.

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Bicky will plan your first lesson with care.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching since 2008 and my fundamental objective is to get them through decently.
Considering myself as a problem solver for students has given me an edge over others and has made me confident. Equipped with a strong working knowledge of real world accountancy & finance has conceptually made me very clear with the subjects of listed professional bodies.

Post exam qualified experience has enabled me to evaluate students' understanding on particular subjects and then deciding the level of approach.
Students who are novices would be given attention from the basics & those who are familiar with the concepts and need a little push, would be moved directly on to past exam papers and examination kit.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

YES.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Kaplan Financial - London

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Bicky has been amazing ever since I started taking lessons with him. His methods have allowed me to improve my exam techniques considerably and allowed me to achieve high marks in all the exams I have taken since I started with him. Could not recommend him enough.

I found Bicky after failing Principles of Tax at my first attempt and was in need of help as I didn't know how I could change my exam/revision techniques for the second sitting. With Bicky's help over a number of sessions I ended up getting 75 in my PoT retake, by far the highest score I'd had in the Certificate exams! I normally struggle with exams but this was the first time I'd gone into the exam feeling confident.

I have already asked for his assistance with my other exams and would recommend anyone else to do the same!

Tanya

Bicky is very passionate about teaching, which helps when you are trying to understand the subject. He is knowledgeable and puts his students as top priority. He’s a very positive person and has encouraged and helped me through multiple exams. So grateful!

M
Mitchell

I used Bicky to help me pass the Principles of Tax exam as it seemed to be the exam that I couldn’t get the hang of but after several weeks of two sessions a week I ended up passing the exam with 70% which is the highest % I have achieved at the moment. He is a great tutor who has a great understanding of everything he teaches and due to that confidence in his own knowledge it allowed me to feel comfortable that I went to the right person for the job. He is a very attentive tutor who broke down and helped solve any issues or confusion I had. He is great at getting back to people quickly which is ideal as it allowed me to plan around him as I was not sitting there waiting days for a response! I highly recommend that you use Bicky for any exam you need help with as you will not regret it

Chris

I got highly recommended by Bicky from a friend of mine after failing my first ACA exam. What made Bicky such a brilliant tutor is his ability to tailor his learning style towards my own needs, whilst also incorporating his own methods for acing the exam. He was also thorough, detailed and patient when explaining concepts to me, which was something I especially needed. Needless to say, my result speaks for itself as I was able to jump from 38% to 76% in my ACA exam in under two weeks. I will definitely be working with Bicky again for my future exams.

Rachel

Bicky is amazing! He’s with you all along the way. A great tutor and will make sure you grasp everything

Francesca

Bicky tutored me for my BPT and BST exams for the ACA qualification. He made me feel at ease from the first session and we got straight into questions and exam technique which was very helpful. He was very familiar with the exam structure and syllabus and was able to give me good tips even in the hour and a half sessions we had. I went from getting 27% in the first mock to 83% in the real exam! I couldn't have done it without him!!

I contacted Bicky when I decided that it was time to change from my previous tutor. I had one paper left, ACCA advanced tax, and having previously failed this paper 4 times, I knew I needed some serious help. I started seeing Bicky in Jan 2019 and we started studying towards the June 2019 sitting. Bicky was super understanding of my personal situation with 2 young children, but rather than piling on the pressure, he gave me so many wonderful useful hints, tips and motivation! Exam technique was a big worry for me and he made sure I was exam ready, reinforcing everything we worked through regularly. Due to Bicky's invaluable help and support, I managed to pass my final paper in June 2019! His passion for his job shows in the way he is dedicated to each and every one of his students.

I found Bicky via Superprof, when I was googling for an online/skype tutor to help me get through the Professional level options for ACCA. I have to say, Bicky is an amazing tutor and I would totally recommend him for any student studying professional exams. He is highly professional in his conduct, inspiring as a tutor with superlative communication skills. He has the ability to explain concepts and ideas in a way that makes sense to the specific student. So he really figures out a way to explain things in a way that is relatable to each student. So this is no copy and paste tutor! He is also encouraging and supportive. He helps provide that extra boost of confidence just when you are half way through studying or doing exams or even retakes and cannot quite see the light at the end of the tunnel. He also has a great sense of humour and is very funny!! If I ever choose to study for more professional exams. I would definitely go back to Bicky for tutoring. Thanks for everything, Bicky - you are an inspiration!!

Bicky is an excellent tutor. He helped me pass my CIMA case study by clearly explaining the technicalities of various accounting standards and offering very helpful tips on exam technique.

I would strongly recommend him to any other CIMA candidates.

Interview with Bicky

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Bicky — When I was in my teens, I always knew what I wanted to do in life and that was Chartered Accountancy. I belong to a family of educators. My mum, uncle and aunties are all teachers and so was my grandfather. When I finished my studies, I really wanted to do something with my acquired knowledge, and my passion for helping others naturally took me to tutoring.
My first tutee was from KPMG. I still remember it well. It was a Saturday and I got there early morning to teach for a couple of hours. He liked my teaching style so much that he asked if I could teach him the next day, too.

After assisting him for a total 16 hours over that weekend, this whole new journey started for me. After that weekend, he became my permanent student until his case study. Since then, I started accumulating tutees and never looked back.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you teach to students.
Bicky — ICAEW: Certificate Level - Accounting, Management Information, Principles of Taxation, Assurance, Business Technology and Finance, Law

Professional Level - Financial Accounting and Reporting, Business Planning: Taxation, Business Strategy and Technology, Audit and Assurance, Tax Compliance, Financial Management.
(I don't assist tutees in Business Planning: Insurance exam)

The CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting: Fundamentals of Management Accounting (BA2), Fundamentals of Financial Accounting (BA3), Fundamentals of Ethics, Corporate Governance and Business Law (BA4)
(I don't assist tutees in Fundamental of Business Economics (BA1))

& MANAGEMENT CASE STUDY EXAM

Strategic Level: Strategic Management (E3), Risk Management (P3), Financial Strategy (F3)
& STRATEGIC CASE STUDY EXAM

ICAS- All exams up until case study.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Bicky — My Financial Reporting and Audit Assurance teachers at Kaplan Financial. They are truly decent human beings and a genuine inspiration. They had a real interest in the subjects they taught and were always available for any query we had. I have the same attitude towards my students, keeping myself available 24/7 for them, and take pride in what I teach and practice.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Bicky — As five fingers are never the same, no tutee is same. Therefore, adjusting to meet individual needs is one of the most important traits a good tutor must have. Ability to listen, being patient not only in the beginning but throughout the engagement, adaptable to the constant changes and making concepts as easy as possible. Ability to convey complex terms and calculations into simplest form. Reviewing progress and making any necessary changes to ensure the tutee is performing at his/her best iis also important.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Bicky — I helped one of my classmates while undertaking my qualification. He was really struggling and was thinking of opting out as he couldn't take the pressure exams created. When I heard he was planning exit strategy, I sat down with him and listened to why he decided to quit. I'd say it was my first encounter to real-life challenge of which I had a clear solution. Not only did I help him with his exams but I also made him realise the perks of being a Chartered Accountant. I was persuasive enough to change his mind. He passed all his exams and is now an active member of ACCA.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Bicky — Financial Reporting standards are getting revised constantly to address the latest issues when applying the treatments. Tax rules are changing each year to improve fiscal policy on which our Government heavily relies on. Therefore, keeping myself afresh with new information is a challenge but also enjoyable. It enables me to continuously assess how our economy is progressing.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something different?
Bicky — Because my passion is teaching/helping, I am in this profession. My work gets me out of bed each morning. Before my alarm clock goes off, I am in bed looking forward to the day ahead, thinking about the difference I could make, bringing positive changes to make someone's life better. I can't think of doing anything else even if I get the chance at a second life.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof?
Bicky — Having taught thousands of students successfully since I started in 2008, I have formed an unattachable desire to keep my legacy alive. My secret of success is common sense: what I say counts and I put it into action. Whatever I commit to, I deliver. I don't believe in cancellations, I take my work very seriously and am super focused on results. I tend to know my students, their parents, their friends, I am actually part of their lives. Because I know them, I can better understand their problems and solve them as they arise.
