Methodology

My name is Zaakira and I am a qualified English teacher in Secondary education. I offer lessons for GCSE English language and literature, I also offer A- level English literature classes and tuition on a one to one basis. I approach my teaching through discussion as I believe the best way to interpret literature is through discussing it. This then prepares an open mind and an analytical approach to any text prior to writing an essay. I also believe in finding your own unique style of writing when it comes to essay writing, I can help explore your individual approach to this. Additionally, I can teach across exam boards (mainly AQA). Can offer extra avenues to learning for those struggling with the school's approaches.

Experience

I am a graduate of English literature from the University of Sheffield. I recently graduated from Sheffield Hallam with QTS and a PGCE in Secondary English qualifying as a teacher of English. I have taught across Secondary schools teaching English Language and literature. I can offer one to one help with those struggling at GCSE level and A level, my tuition style will be designed around the pupils and their individual ability. I have worked across the board with SEND pupils and EAL pupils in various secondary schools.
