Founder & Educational Director at AE Tuition & Publications – http://www.aetuition.co.uk
I have known Sumit for nearly twenty years. As well as teaching him myself, Sumit played an integral role in my organisation for almost ten years, working in a senior supervisory team. He handled administration, managed staff and dealt with client enquiries. He does not shy away from hard work, enthusiastically taking responsibility of the 1200+ students, 100+ direct reports and maintenance of the general tuition programme. Before being promoted to a managerial position, Sumit worked as an assistant at AE Tuition. In this role, he gained extensive experience of working with children on a one to one basis. Sumit was academically able, having passed for grammar school and then doing consistently well throughout his educational career to university.
With excellent people skills and a strong sense of empathy, I always found that Sumit relates well with children and adults. He communicates well; both in written form and spoken, and has a pleasant easy going personality. Sumit is popular and well-liked by everybody and resolves conflict situations well by keeping calm and always being reasonable. He was ideal for the role, which required him to maintain liaison between management and staff, ensuring all senior teams had upmost awareness of daily updates and were notified of new procedures. As well as being a senior fire marshal for the building, he started recycling and car share initiatives.
Sumit is technically very able and this makes him very suited for his chosen sector; Information Technology. Any computer problems in our organisation were always referred to Sumit to resolve. Sumit has a natural flair for computer systems and is very creative with data handling. He often made very useful suggestions on how to improve how we operate our business systems. He always kept abreast of the latest technological developments and regularly gave advice both to me and other managers in the business.
Sumit is mature, well-motivated and of good character. He is able to inspire and lead others, but commendably chooses to do this by example rather than simply dictating requests or orders. During his years with my organisation, Sumit continually demonstrated effective control management, allocation of duties and ability to prioritise. Sumit frequently analysed problems, managed issue escalation and came up with independent solutions without any prompting.
His diligence to process, instigation and production of management methodology amongst capabilities to handle impromptu supervisory of protocol has seen him through to academic and professional success. He was a real asset to the business and will become a valuable member of any professional community. I wish him all the best with his future endeavours.

To summarise, it is really is this generosity with his time and his selfless desire to help others that I want to ask you to recognise – it’s so far over and above anything, we’d normally ask it’s untrue.
