Information about Zahida

I am a qualified teacher with MSC (Biology) and PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education). I have 20 years of teaching experience in a prestigious Grammar School.

During my teaching career I have been responsible for:

* Teaching GCSE and A Level Biology

* Revision workshops for preparing pupils to achieve their highest potential in exam

I have been a private tutor for a few years. In these years I have;

* Tutored `A Level` pupils from local colleges and schools

* Coached pupils taking exam privately

* Taught pupils taking `Online A Level exam in Biology`

* I teach AQA, OCR, WJEC and Edexcel syllabi.

I am a full time tutor and offer long-term tutoring to keep the continuity throughout the academic year.

I tailor my lessons to the learning needs of each individual student.
Some students struggle to grasp the basic concepts whereas others just need help converting their knowledge into effective answers. Therefore I work through the specifications with each student, to ensure the basics are learnt before moving on to the more complicated concepts.

We concentrate on exam technique using specific past questions.
In addition to topic-specific revision, I also help students to develop study and exam skills and am happy to assist with revision planning and technique, essay writing skills, practical skill revision and mathematical skills for biologists.

I encourage students to contact me via e-mail if they have any problems or concerns in between lessons. I am also happy to mark essays and past papers in my own time, with feedback given via e-mail or during the next lesson.

I am very patient and friendly. My tutoring sessions are relaxed and enjoyable, as i believe that students are most productive when they enjoy their lessons.

Some comments of my pupils;;

* I had an enjoyable experience being tutored in biology, the information given was relevant and helpful, the resources such as notes were extremely useful and I was learning here more than I was at college. A in Biology. Imran

* I got B and I got accepted to my first choice uni Newcastle. Thank you for all your help, it would not have been possible otherwise. My tutoring experience was very useful and enjoyable as there was an abundance of practice questions and notes on every topic. I never hesitated to ask questions if I didn`t understand as I knew she would be able to help. Mohammad

* I got B I am really pleased with my grade. Thank you for the help. Your tutoring enabled me to gain more confidence when studying Biology. The notes you gave for each topic were really useful in my revision and helped me understand difficult topics in a much simpler way. I achieved my target grade and that is due to your teaching, so thank you for helping me throughout my two years of studying a level. Sana

* Hi I got A in biology. Thank you so much for the support. I would highly recommend her, she provides up to date notes and tailors the lessons according to your needs. She gives exam questions that are relevant to the course which was key for success of achieving a high grade in biology. Shana

* The teaching was very useful and helped me a lot. The notes were extremely helpful as they were concise and acted as great revision tools near the exam. G.B.

* I found doing past papers beneficial as it provided me a good idea on what I need to focus on whilst also been able to go through topics that I found hard, with you. Hannah

* You were able to explain the doubts that I had in a clear way by drawing on paper which I find very helpful as I like to visualise things. I have thoroughly enjoyed being tutored by you for these past 3 years and I cannot thank you enough for your help during my GCSE and A level. Gopika

* You have been a brilliant teacher. You have really benefited me and transformed me from a C grade candidate into a very able candidate to get the best possible grade I can achieve. Tayab

Whilst my daughter has only had an introductory lesson, Jahida was very kind and very helpful and very easy to communicate with. She clearly has a lot of teaching experience and knows how to get the best out of her students. We are delighted that Jahida is going to be supporting us this year in the lead up to A Level exams in 2019

Zahida is a very knowledgable and thorough tutor when it comes to the content of the subject, but she also knows how to tailor her lessons to the pupil. For me, she recognised I needed more exam practice, so we went over many past papers to refine my technique. Throughout this, she was calm, supportive and always took the time to ensure I understood what was happening and answered any questions I had. Overall, Zahida is a brilliant tutor and I would reccomend her to anyone wanting to excel in Biology!

Tutors Response :

Wish you all the best

After the first tutorial both my daughters felt so much more confident in their studies, they both have comented on how Zahida explains the work so much more clearly than the tutors at college. It has made the transition from GCSe to A Level for my younger daughter more smoothly.
