« Zara is a fantastic young lady who is extremely passionate about English. Zara has been wonderful with my daughter who finds English a challenge as she's very opinionated. Zara helped turn negatives into positives. We are very grateful to Zara for her support and encouragement. We'd recommend Zara in a heartbeat...she's the best. »

Bookish, passionate and approachable English Literature university student tutoring English in York

Methodology

I approach each subject topic as individual as the person the content it being delivered to. I believe a flexible style that hones in on polishing strengths as well as assisting with areas that are more difficult in equal measure. Tutoring is not about correcting or chastising, but a rewarding and satisfying learning experience that takes all levels of achievement and step backs into account is most conducive to successful tutorship.

Background

I am a second year student studying for my Ba in English and Related Literature. I tutored during my A-levels and privately for families in my area outside of term time. My aim goal is to be a lecturer and spread the appreciation of literature!
