I am a full time private tutor in English, Literature, Modern Foreign Languages, Classics and Academic Skills; I work hard with every student on a personal and individual basis to make sure that they can achieve their potential and attain the highest grades possible.
I have over 8 years experience in 1-1 tutoring, so I am comfortable teaching a variety of exam boards (CIE, AQA, Edexcel, OCR) and also helping more casual learners or adult learners with specific goals. I regularly tutor at Degree, Masters and PHD level, with a particular focus on essay and academic writing. I am an approved AQA examiner; qualified to mark exam papers in both English Literature and Language GCSE and A Level.
I love learning of all kinds and I hope to pass on this enthusiasm to my students. I provide a professional, yet friendly and welcoming environment where students are encouraged to learn and also to enjoy their subjects. My students often boost their grades dramatically within a few months, or achieve fluency in a language within a year.
Each person learns best in his or her own particular way, so I provide personalised lesson plans to meet the individual needs of my students.
I have been very passionate about languages since I was young. I lived in Tuscany, Italy and studied Italian there but I also speak French, German, Spanish and Latin. I`m half Pakistani so I grew up with Urdu and Hindi. I now speak around 8 languages to a greater or lesser degree.
I love reading and writing. I write short stories, essays and poetry, and I`ve had several essays and poems published. I recently exhibited some of my poems as part of an exhibition in Perth, Australia.
Availability: I currently have limited availability.
I offer intensive lessons for University and A Level, where we sit together and go over an essay or exam paper until you are fully happy with it.

I have been a private tutor for 8 years, teaching a variety of students of all ages and levels in a number of different subjects. I teach a wide range of subjects to high proficiency because I love learning - Literature, Languages and Classics are particular passions of mine which I`ve studied to a high degree of proficiency over the years.
TEACHING / EXAMINER POSITIONS
I spent 2 years as Head of English for CHS (Cambridge Home School. I constructed syllabuses for and taught lower school, iGCSE and A Level English Language and English Literature, though our exam board is CIE, I`m also familiar with other exam boards, AQA and Edexcel in particular. I have been an examiner for AQA English for the past two years.
I am a fully qualified TEFL teacher (English Language - Distinction Grade with TEFL Cambridge Intensive Course, Business English, Academic English), having worked with five online teaching companies (in the UK, China, Russia and Japan).
In 2012 I graduated from the University of Bristol with a First Class degree in English. I am confident in tutoring both English Language and English Literature, as well as general research and essay writing skills.
I have an A Level in French, and I attained full marks in my speaking exam and my coursework. I love to read in French, cook French food and I visit friends in France regularly. I am happy to teach French to students of all levels and ages I am very familiar with the AQA and CIE exam specifications.
In 2012 I lived in Florence, Italy, where I attended a language school and picked up Italian. Having learnt through total immersion, I achieved a high rate of fluency in a short period of time. I love Italian culture as much as the language, and have spent time managing an Italian restaurant in the past. I currently teach CIE Italian but am also familiar with AQA.
