In today's world, students find it difficult to form a link between subjects taught at university such as Econometrics, Mathematics and Statistics and their application in real-life. Our tutors are skilled at assisting students in interpreting results derived from quantitative methods and applying it to theory, thereby helping in their understanding of the strength of modern Statistical procedures. By imparting more than only the factual information, we help students form a real understanding which can be linked to daily lives. We believe in showing how some of the most complicated quantitative processes can be reduced to a few basic principles. Our teaching methods enable our students to engage with theories that expand their understanding of principles related to economics.
We look into helping our students in realising their full potential by employing targeted revision and exam techniques based on improving results. University students today lack the confidence in achieving their goals. Here at Colour Learning, we feel it is essential to inspire and motivate students to grasp the knowledge and skills underlying their success. With students facing immense pressure in the UK job market in terms of finding work after graduating, we believe in investing utmost effort in ensuring that we provide students with the necessary guidance aimed at achieving their academic as well as career-oriented goals For students wishing to convert their foundation degrees to move onto university, we inculcate in them strategies for independent learning and enhance their study skills.

The biggest challenge undergraduates face while studying econometrics is to simply find interest in the subject. For many economics majors, econometrics is the course they least enjoy. Students come to economics expecting to find social science courses that describe human behaviour, such as how markets work, the functioning of the macroeconomy, the role that is played by the government in the economy, international trade, and a host of other subjects that they categorize as falling under economics. They find these things in their introductory course, and again in intermediate-level courses. When they get to econometrics, however, they find themselves immersed in density functions, covariances, and sums of squared errors to be minimized. When not dealing with purely abstract statistical matter, they deal with coins being flipped, dice being rolled, and other simple examples seemingly unrelated to economics. Many are inclined to think, not unreasonably, that if they had wanted to study such material, they would have majored in statistics or mathematics, not in economics. They question the purpose of dealing with all these numbers and variables and equations and how it helps them to understand economics. The secret to engaging students in econometric analysis is to provide them with answers to this question, early and often. We emphasize on bridging gaps, seeing the material as our students see it, and presenting it in a way that will help them approach it and understand its relevance to the subjects of their own interest.
By the time students get to an econometrics course, instructors often assume, wrongfully, that knowledge of trade-offs between Type I and Type II errors is fully understood and appreciated. We focus on the basic tool for econometrics, which is the linear regression model. In this way, one can seek to draw best-ÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¬Ã‚Ât lines through a scatterplot.
Our techniques are based around The Gauss-Markov Theorem and Monte-Carlo experiments. We enable students to better understand the causes, consequences and correction methods relating to Misspecification, Heteroskedasticity, Multicollinearity, Autocorrrelation, Maximum Likelihood Estimators which are all essential in terms of finding estimators which have desirable statistical properties such as unbiasedness, efficiency and consistency. We also explain the use of different tests, some of which include the T-test, F-test, Chow Test, Ramsey test, Durbin Watson Test, Goldfeld Quandt test and the White Test.
With the use of quantitative methods, our teachers incorporate into their teaching, both the theoretical and practical aspects of applying statistical methods to economic data for the purpose of testing economic theories and of forecasting and controlling the future path of economic variables.
A sound knowledge of mathematics and statistics is important in most areas of science, economics and medicine and engineering. Mathematics and statistics are also the two cornerstones for decision-making and various quantitative activities in commerce, industry, education and defence. Most companies and organisations have concluded that success is critically dependent on the level of analytical, quantitative and statistical skills of their workforce and they therefore seek employees with a sound mathematical training.
We engage students in applications that establish the importance of mathematics and statistics for use in real situations, where we focus on enabling students to connect statistical techniques to economic problems
Our aim is to equip students with a thorough overview of modern mathematics while placing emphasis on the skills for mathematical reasoning. Students not only enhance their learning but also develop strong presentation and numeracy skills that can later be beneficial for them in practical applications. We help students in attaining a full grasp of the foundations of calculus which covers operations such as integration and differentiation, single and multivariable optimization, constrained optimization, functions of many variables, systems of linear equations, differential equations and techniques such as algebraic manipulation, functions and simultaneous equations.
Statistical analysis is a critical tool in many fields, and as such, it is taught in courses across many disciplines.
We help students in their understanding of using statistical and mathematical methods in order to describe economic systems.
There are often different ways to solve a statistical problem. We assist students in learning how to communicate using the statistical language, solving statistical problems, drawing conclusions using techniques such as hypothesis testing and supporting conclusions by explaining the reasoning behind them.
We aim to begin with the mastery of descriptive statistics such as histograms, skewed distributions, distribution moments including mean, median and mode and further on to measures of spread such as range, variance and standard deviation. With these fundamentals in place, we concentrate on the importance of using probability, sampling distribution of an estimator, normal distribution, hypothesis testing, T and F distributions along with Chi-squared distributions, sampling and estimation, simple regreesion, regression to the mean and the least squares estimator. This enables students to understand statistical ideas and thereby build on their ability to apply that to real-world situations in terms of problem solving and decision making skills.

I approached Basit in September, following receipt of the AS level results for my daughter. She had received a C in Economics and a D in Mathematics.
I had some reservations about whether an external tutor could help motivate and stimulate interest in these subjects, especially in view of the results, and my daughter's tendency to lose heart. But, I have to say, that from the very first meeting, Basit inspired confidence, and was very clear about the steps needed to be taken to achieve a turnaround. The challenge was compounded by the fact that my daughter needed to resit every single AS module , as well as stay up to speed with the A level content.
Zahra took up the challenge of coaching and mentoring Shrishti in Mathematics. Her calm, nurturing style, complemented Basit's strategic approach very well, and together they helped deliver 2 grade-improvements in each subject. A further testimonial to their contributions were the remarks from my daughters teachers at school on how engaged and motivated my daughter was in class too.
I can't thank Basit and Zahra enough, and would strongly recommend their services to those who want structured, encouraging and productive support for their children who may be going through similar challenges.
Basit is a dynamic tutor, who displayed great skill and knowledge as he assisted me to reach my full potential. His sound understanding of the course and exam technique required, not only enhanced my ability but also my confidence to tackle any question. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who wishes to achieve the highest results
Basit really helped me think more and produce creative and unique points in my essays which gave me the confidence to answer any question. I was only able to do this because he pushed me to produce perfect answers and motivated me a lot.
Furthermore lessons were always interesting as he's able to stimulate discussions about certain topics which makes learning even more easier.
In addition he is always able to explain things that seem complicated in a way that makes it seem so easy through use of examples and diagrams which was very effective in my learning.
I definitely owe my great AS and A2 results to Basit!
After failing my Economics A Level with a D, I was eager to retake the subject and achieve an A, in order to go to university. I was in desperate need of a tutor as the retake course I was attending was not as beneficial as I had hoped. My father found Basit online in March, and I continued to see him until my exams in June (for 3 and a half months).
Within the first few sessions, I could already tell how valuable his teaching was going to be. His strategies are unique and I found that I connected with his techniques straight away. He was immediately able to identify where my strengths and weaknesses lay, and therefore we were able to focus on my individual needs and study at my own pace.
I ended up finding the help I received from Basit a lot more beneficial than any previous teacher, and therefore ended up withdrawing from the retake course that I had initially enrolled in, and relied entirely on him. He gave me more confidence than I ever thought I could have, as well as changing my work ethic to become more independent and self-motivated. Furthermore, not only did I find the individual sessions useful, but his flexibility also meant that I was able to contact him whenever I needed help from home.
I would recommend Basit as a tutor to anyone that needs help with Economics because he is incredibly committed, keen and patient. The fact that he is able to get on with his students so well makes learning the syllabus much more fun and enjoyable rather than a chore, which I never thought was possible.
Basit has been a complete lifesaver this year. In one of our first lessons he completed the whole of unit 3 theory to the extent I fully understood it, something my other teachers failed to do in 6 months, Basit taught me in a couple of hours. His lessons have been phenomenal and his teaching methods are just perfect for anyone and everyone. He teaches you exactly what you need to know and then builds it up so you're not thrown in at the deep end. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better tutor and for that I'm so grateful. Thanks Basit for helping me with economics, couldn't have done it without you.
Basit is a relaxed yet efficient tutor who will definitely mould you into the best candidate you can be.
The first time I took AS level at my previous school I had picked one of the hardest combinations of subjectsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ possible; Economics, Maths, Biology and Chemistry and on top I had no real interest in 3 of the 4. I ended up coming out of AS with a very low set of results. This led me to the decision to re-take the whole year doing subjects I had a genuine interest in.
I needed to raise one of my Economics A level modules from a C to secure an A overall. I had a series of 10 lessons with Basit in the week before the exam. His approach was very practical and exam focused and helped me secure an A in Economics and get into my first choice University (Newcastle Upon Tyne).
I met Basit through regents college after, I didn't get my grades to get to the course or university of my choice. He was extremely helpful, and taught me new revision techniques, and his teaching stratergies helped me to understand, and build my confidence. His combination of passion,enthusiasm and revision discipline for economics helped me to exceed the grades required for my course. University of Nottingham, Business methods and Economics of Contemporary China.
In the short three months in which I was tutored by Basit, my skill and understanding in A-level Economics substantially improved, which ultimately resulted in my personal confidence increasing. Basit achieved this through his explanations, discussions, and exercises which he customised for my needs, which enabled me to tackle the area's I found most difficult. Through Basit's lessons, I not only found myself able to apply these core skills to Economics, but to all other subject areas.
Being a student, I have had several teachers throughout my course of study, but none as enthusiastic and devoted as Zahra. Zahra managed to inspire me to like economics as a subject. She transformed the way I approached economics with her impeccable teaching ability. Certainly a once in a life-time teacher- the perfect inspiration I needed to progress in academics!
Thank you for helping me to get my desired results to the University of my dreams. You have been such a patient and helpful tutor. You managed to inspire me to like economics as a subject. You are definitely the best tutor I ever had!
It was a pleasure to be tutored by such a keen and dedicated tutor. Zahra explained concepts slowly and clearly and encouraged me to utilize my abilities to their fullest. I would strongly recommend Zahra to any students seeking to excel in the field of academics.
A fantastic tutor! Zahra is incredibly well prepared for every lesson and puts in a lot of extra work for you outside the lessons. She cares a great deal about your results and is an extremely patient tutor. Would recommend with highest praise!
Zahra was a wonderful help in preparing me for my masters degree in statistics and econometrics. I found her to be highly knowledgeable, and a fantastic tutor. She was very patient and always willing to explain questions (no matter how basic!). I would thoroughly recommend her to any potential student.
