I allow my students to fully understand the topic prior moving on to the next chapter! Happy to answer your questions. I understand each student is different, therefore, my approach to tutoring varies from person to person. Also, depends on what I am teaching, and how much knowledge student has about the subject.
I prepare my own notes and presentation for my students. I always give notes after the session, to help my students develop the understanding of a subject. I can help you with SPSS and write up of results. Past students of mine have made significant improvement after few sessions with me. If you would like me to have a look at your coursework prior to final submission, happy to have a look at your essays/dissertations/assignments.

I have got 1st Class with only few sessions with Khizra. She is a great tutor. She went an extra mile to make sure I understand. She did not rush. Khizra was an amazing mentor as well.
I know Khizra since 2011. She is extremely passionate, and always wanted to be a tutor. She didn't have that support and access to tutoring during her studies. Khizra wants to make a difference with tutoring by offering a support to her students, so that they can achieve their goals and dreams.
I know Khizra since my undergrad degree. I passed with First Class Hons. Which alone is enough to justify how good student she is. With full-time job and undergrad degree, it was a lot stressful. But with constant support of Khizra I got 1st Class Hons not only in my dissertation but also throughout the uni exams.
When I started tutoring sessions I would have never imagined getting any more than a 3rd class or 2:2. From day one Khizra made sure I am competing my work on time. It is a good thing to have a reminder.
I had a bad experience in my past with tutors who were not bothered by my progress and leave everything on me. Khizra is amazing at her job. I wish her all the best with tutoring. She is a young lady but she is an expert in her job!!
I have got 1st Class with few sessions with Khizra. My grades have significantly improved. I can't thank this tutor enough for helping me throughout my dissertation and for her techniques to get excellent grades in uni exams. I will not book lessons with anyone else now. I wasted soo much time looking for help, but Khizra helped me in short span. She is respectful, polite and knowledgeable. If you need hep, contact her today. Don't look anywhere else!
Excellent tutoring skills. Years of experience. Khizra is very passionate about teaching. Her students get excellent grades.
