Finding the best CSS and PMS English Teachers in Pakistan is the most challenging task for serious competitive aspirants. This article explicitly explains the top CSS and PMS English essay and precis teachers.
Whether it is the CSS, PMS, GRE, GAT, or GMAT exams, English has become a bone of contention for competitive and entrance exam students in Pakistan. That is why the English Essay and Precis are considered the most challenging subjects for the whole CSS and PMS journey, which thousands of aspirants undertake to get an allocation in Central Superior Services or Provincial Services. Being new to these papers’ preparation, almost all CSS aspirants face multiple challenges. The most significant are inept and inexperienced English teachers. Nearly all the teachers we encounter on YouTube, FB, and Instagram are either new qualifiers with no grip on the English subjects or merely college-level English teachers who do not even know what communication skills are and what CSS and PMS aspirants need. Another frustrating fact is that no quality preparatory material is available for the compulsory and optional subjects. Among all other reasons, these two reasons have haunted the future of thousands every year. So, to qualify for these papers, nearly every serious and committed student is in pursuit of finding the best English writing mentor for himself. Although there are many experienced teachers across the country for English, the primary hurdle is finding out who will suit you and help you prepare the subjects thoroughly and teach you how to give your viewpoints a flow.
Let’s come towards the article; some of my fellows and friends repeatedly ask me the same question: “What is the best way to crack English Essay & Precis Paper?” Although I have taken coaching from multiple academies, I hardly recommend academies to my friends, followers, and all other aspirants; my previous articles have explained why I don’t recommend academies. But, before advising you people anything else, first, I must tell you what my mentor, Sir Syed Kazim Ali, taught me whenever I became depressed, shattered, and down during my preparation. “No academy, no person is here to attempt your paper in the exam; during the paper, only two powers manifest your success and future, and they are ALLAH and You, yourself”. And I have noticed and experienced that trusting oneself and having complete faith in Allah Almighty are the only tools that decide one’s destination. We, who are qualified in PMS, or any other competitive exams, are not born successful; we always make it through intelligent work.
I advise aspirants to seek guidance and proper English grammar and writing coaching if they think their grammar, sentence structuring, thought content, arguments, or writing is not good. To check your English level, buy Wren & Martin’s or a Grad level English Grammar book and try to solve exercises before preparing a topic. It is the best way to judge your English Level. In the first case, if you score more than 60%, you are well prepared and need guidance from an expert or self-coaching.
In the second case, if you score less than 60% or between 20 to 40%, you really need an expert who can provide you with detailed and comprehensive lectures, practice questions and conduct tests topic-wise. Unfortunately, most students fail their English papers because they join teachers or academies without knowing their English level. With weak English basics, no English teacher can help you prepare for the essays and precis papers. So, always judge your English language and grammar status before deciding which teacher to join.
Every competitive aspirant must know that cracking English essays and precis papers and scoring high in other compulsory and optional papers in the CSS and PMS examinations revolve greatly around English expression and writing skills. Therefore, the better the command of the English language, the greater the chances of success. However, no matter how much knowledge you possess, from what university you are coming from, and how many subjects you have prepared, if you do not know how to present your viewpoints on a topic or issue relevantly and coherently, you can never make it. Thus, English writing skills distinguish you among thousands and help you materialize your dream of stepping into Pakistan’s bureaucracy.
Therefore, you should only start CSS and PMS preparation if you have a good grasp of English vocabulary, grammar, and writing skills. Otherwise, CSS or PMS will become a monster for you. As per my knowledge, I am sharing a list of the best CSS and PMS English teachers in Pakistan for serious aspirants who do not want to waste their time, money, and energy on Social Media, running after advertisements, and academies. You can join any of them; they can really help you prepare well.
- Sir Razi Abidi
- Sir Muzaffar Bukhari
- Sir Syed Kazim Ali
Sir Razi Abidi
Undoubtedly, Sir Razi Abidi is a pioneer and a well-reputed English teacher when it comes to CSS and PMS English coaching. He is known as the best person for the English Essay paper. You can start writing essays under his supervision if you know English Grammar well. He has a big name in CSS and PMS English guidance. He teaches his students the art of writing an essay, which is the foremost skill required before appearing for the exam. He is one of the most renowned English language mentors among CSS aspirants. Owing to his years of experience, he can give tips and tricks to qualify for the exam. One of the prevalent things he shares about aspirants is that they lag the organization of thoughts in their essays, making you fix all minor errors and making you love writing. The only thing you find problematic with him is your write-up evaluation. He doesn’t evaluate your write-ups word for word. His entire focus is on outline and introduction, so you can join him if you know grammar and writing skills already. Joining Sir Razi Abidi to learn English essays is a blessing. Unfortunately, he is for those who live in Lahore or can quickly join his classes in Lahore, as he doesn’t offer any online courses. One has to be in Lahore to learn from him. He has spared some portion of his house for aspirants whom he teaches. You can join him whenever you want.

Sir Syed Kazim Ali
At last, comes my teacher, Sir Syed Kazim Ali, whom I joined after wasting much of my time, money, and energy. If anyone of you is searching for an English teacher who doesn’t only teach but equips you with a greater understanding of English Grammar and writing skills. In that case, Sir Syed Kazim Ali is Pakistan’s best English essay and precis teacher for CSS and PMS aspirants. This person is a class in himself, kind, lovely, sincere, and has a father-like personality. He needs no introduction as every dedicated and serious aspirant already knew him because of Howfiv and Cssprepforum websites’ contents. For years, he has been the only CSS and PMS English teacher with the highest success rate of his students in essay and precis papers. Why I am recommending him is his way of delivering lectures and imparting concepts to his students. He teaches English grammar, written communication skills, and thought content from the very basic to advanced levels. He enables his students to write sentences and expand their thoughts as long as an essay of more than 5000 words. Moreover, he checks and evaluates his students’ write-ups religiously, which helps his students become confident, fluent, and errorless while expressing their thoughts on a particular topic. CSS and PMS solved past papers questions and essays are enough to let any serious aspirant know what he teaches his students and what his students turn after learning from him. The best part is that he teaches online. Unlike other teachers, another best part about him is that he takes a few students who qualify for his admission test to his courses. That means the class is always filled with serious aspirants. That is why his students are always seen qualifying for the CSS, PMS, Judiciary, One Paper Exams, or other competitive exams in Pakistan. Without any doubt, the only teacher who could claim the credit for my successful career is Sir Syed Kazim Ali. He was the person who didn’t only encourage me but also made my journey successful. Although it took me 5 to 6 months to learn English writing skills, the result of it was really tremendous. I qualified for the PMS exam and many descriptive exams in a single go just because of my writing skills, confidence, and rationality that I learnt from him. To join him, you must qualify for his course’s admission test.

Some More Advice to CSS and PMS aspirants
- Remember, whether you are searching for a teacher for English or any subject for CSS and PMS, do some deep research instead of relying on catchy ads. Try to find teachers whose students and work are their credentials, not ads and videos on FB, Instagram, and YouTube.
- CSS and PMS examination preparation can never be done in 3 to 4 months. Even the English papers, if you prepare well, can take up to 6 months. So, never join academies that claim 3 to 4 months preparation plan for all subjects.
- Prefer professional and experienced teachers over new and qualified officers. An experienced teacher knows thousands of ways to help you prepare a subject well. On the other hand, an officer or qualifier, like me, just has tips and tricks. That sometimes works, but most of the time does not. Moreover, a professional teacher has nothing to do other than provide coaching, so he has time to sit with you and listen to the problems you face during preparation and address them accordingly.
- Never try to cram outlines, introductions, and essays written by anybody else. An essay tests your comprehension and viewpoints about a specific topic, but when you cram others’ stuff, they never work.
- Give the English subjects their due importance because when you learn to give your thoughts written words, your preparation becomes a piece of cake; even you can prepare for other subjects by yourself.
- Lastly, never buy books on a subject available in the market; most of them are copied from other websites or encyclopedias. Try to search for topics on Google and visit some international and reputed websites having relevant and updated information. This strategy always helps you score the best.
To conclude the article, apart from these three teachers, currently, there is not even a single English language mentor available that can help you qualify for CSS English essays and precis papers. You can never see any of them in any advertisement or academy because quality doesn’t require an ad. If you don’t have time to commute and eagerly want to know what level of English you stand right now, learn English grammar and writing skills from basic to advanced levels and get your write-ups evaluated word for word daily, and write blogs, articles, essays, and stories like a pro, Sir Syed Kazim Ali is the best option. He is undoubtedly the best English teacher for CSS and PMS in Pakistan. On the other hand, if you know writing English and only want tips and tricks regarding essay writing, then Sir Razi Abidi is the best option for you. Both are pioneers in helping students qualify for their exams. But, if you are very weak in English grammar and want to learn it from the elementary level, you can reach out to Sir Muzaffar Bukhari in Lahore.
I hope I have explained the question properly; if you still need guidance, I am always here to guide my fellows and juniors and answer their questions. Finally, I wish all of you a bright future.
