A world renowned scientist and mathematician is doing his bit to help as children find themselves 'locked in at home' during the COVID-19 crisis.

Doctor Imran Tariq, 35, is the founder of Conceptual Learning, a bespoke tutoring service run from his home in Blackamoor Lane, Maidenhead.

He lectured in Pakistan before coming to England where his work at the University of Surrey in Guildford researching how mathematics could be used to forecast and preempt the development of cancers attracted international attention.

A battle against rheumatoid arthritis forced him rein in his activities and focus on tutoring children across Slough, the Royal Borough and South Bucks.

He has run free community workshops previously with local charities and worked closely with the Slough Modest Sisters community group which supports families.

The current lockdown has curtailed the face to face tutoring.

But before normal business can be resumed Doctor has decided to offer a free service to children stranded at home, whose schools are not providing an online educational service.

He and his wife Salma have three children aged 12, 10 and six.

Salma said: "Having children ourselves we are aware that parents do not want their children to miss out. This is a very stressful time for parents and students and we would like to support as many families as we can to ensure learning continues and all students get the support they deserve."

So Dr Tariq founder is now offering free online tutoring sessions via Zoom focussing on the 11plus, mathematics and sciences.
