Nasheed - Haggerston - School English

Methodology

I am an experienced, approachable and successful private tutor. English Literature is the primary focus of my work, though I have also worked with students on University Entrance, Study Skills and Academic Writing.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English Literature; Study Skills; Writing and University Entrance.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BA Hons. in English Literature from Wadham College, Oxford; an MA in Critical Theory from Queen Mary in London, and an MFA in Filmmaking (as a writer and director) from Columbia University in New York.

- How much do you charge?

My rates start at £60/hour (£50/hour for students living or willing to meet within 15 minutes of E2 0JN).

- Where do you teach?

At my students' homes or occasionally at an agreed quiet public place if necessary. I am based in London (Bethnal Green) but am willing to travel for sessions within reason.

Monday 12:00 – 19:00
Tuesday 14:00 – 15:00
Wednesday 12:00 – 19:00

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Oxbridge Entrance; Pre-U; OCR, Edexcel, AQA and CIE AS/A Level and GCSE; IB; BA; MA.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am able to make arrangements for Skype Tutorials - please contact me to find out more.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Tutoring is all about being able to adapt to the way my tutees learn. While no one approach can suit everyone, in general, I seek to help my tutees find the attitudes and tools they need to maximise their potential and enjoyment as students of English Literature. I focus on nurturing productive habits when it comes to reading and writing. These include finding different ways to understand and approach questions. I aspire to share my love of literature, thinking and writing with my students while helping them, and their parents, navigate ever-changing curricula and exam board specifications.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 14 years of experience and have worked as a private tutor since completing my undergraduate degree in July 2000: first in London (through Oxford and Cambridge Tutors and independently), then independently in New York and in Paris. In 2006, I had my first experience of working with undergraduates, as a teaching assistant at Columbia University. Since returning to London, I have pursued tutoring as an adjunct to my work as a writer and director.

Each academic year, I work with about half a dozen students, whom I see for regular weekly sessions focusing on their individual needs, whatever their abilities. I also work with at least one home-schooled tutee each year. I have experience of working with dyslexic students, as well as those with other particular needs – from deafness, dyspraxia and depression to a change of schools. Nearer exam time, or as coursework deadlines loom, I tend also to see new students for a quick confidence boost or some focused revision.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have a full CRB Check

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am registered with one wonderful agency (one of the UK's best agencies), but you can save yourself a hefty introduction fee and commission by contacting me directly.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am currently tutoring one Pre-U candidate, one A2 student; an IB student and two GCSE candidates (GCSE). I also have one Masters student from Birkbeck College, London.

U
Undergraduate at Durham

“… you've really inspired me to enjoy reading even more than I did before I knew you and to appreciate aspects of books that I'd never properly considered before… I just wanted you to know that your tutoring and support does more than just get your students through their exams. So, thank you.”

P
Parent of Pre-U Student

“Nasheed is an outstanding teacher, a hugely intelligent person who is blessed with a friendly, relaxed manner that immediately sets her pupil at ease. Her deep knowledge and love of English literature shine through in her lessons, and she is able to convey her enthusiasm for the subject in an inspirational way.”
