Information about Nafeesa

Are you still looking for an english tutor?

If your answer is yes, then I guess I`d better tell you a bit about myself.
Despite being a Student studying my English BA at Queen Mary University- a Russell Group University, I also work at a college in London teaching GCSE English and A level English Language and Literature. You can therefore expect the energy and passion of a young person, but one who knows how to keep things professional- having worked within an education setting.
For me, teaching is able building confidence and making your child actually enjoy English. A child who feels confident in a subject can come to enjoy it and therefore thrive in it. Whether you’re looking for a Primary, KS3, GCSE or A level tutor- I can cater to your needs. Please scroll below to the relevant section to see what you can expect from me.

Primary:

Reception:

I have a wealth of experience teaching all ages and year groups. Where I work, I’m the teacher who teaches reception children how to read and hold a pencil. Believe it or not, it takes a lot of hard work, patience and encouragement, but it’s totally worth it!
I can guide your child through their different phonic sounds
Encourage reading comprehension through both verbal and written stimulation.
Verbal feedback and interactive activities catering to the individual needs of your child.
A dedicated Action Plan highlighting areas of weakness, areas of strength, whether your children are on track, key target areas which will be focused on and achievement to be expected within a given time period.

Year 1 :

Year 1 is an important year, pivotal in ensuring that your child has a strong foundation in the run-up to their year 2 SATS. As a parent, you can expect the following from me:
-Work on constructing sentences and basic grammar
-Ironing out of phonics errors
-Preparation for the new Phonics Screening tests which are sat in June, at the end of the year.
-Development of Comprehension skills

KS3:

With the dramatic changes to the GCSE syllabus, particularly in English, schools are having to change the way they teach KS3 to ensure that pupils are ready for their exams. As a result, it has become even more important to prepare your child, iron out any issues and areas of weakness, and prepare them for their GCSE exams well in advance. I have created my own successful KS3 model which has been proven to work, and this is the model I will use with your child to help bring up confidence and give them the best start in their GCSE prep:

-An Action Plan highlighting areas of weakness, areas of strength, whether your children are on track, key target areas which will be focused on and achievement to be expected within certain time periods.

-Intensive focus on the PEE structure to prepare their analytical skills

-Intensive focus on terminology required for Literature

-In depth focus on Creative Writing and expectations in an exam

-A deep focus on 19th century literature

-A step-by-step approach through understanding poetry and knowing what to analyse
-Reading Log to ensure that your child is reading texts to prepare them for examination set texts

- Guide to how to structure an essay

-Nurturing and building of confidence regarding HOW pupils and WHAT pupils should analyse.
-Exam Practice

-Weekly homework and feedback

When your child is ready, I can then begin going through their actual GCSE set texts with them before they are covered in your child’s school, to ensure that your child is confident and two steps ahead.



GCSE:

GCSE exams are a stressful but important milestone for your child, and it’s become a lot more stressful with the changes to the curriculum, especially where English is concerned, due to the closed-book context of each exam as well as the fact that your child has to study more texts!
As a result, you can expect the following support from me:


-An Action Plan highlighting areas of weakness, areas of strength, whether your children are on track, key target areas which will be focused on and achievement to be expected within certain time periods.

-Guidance through each of your child’s set texts

-Teaching of techniques to support analysis of unseen poems

-Step by step guide highlighting how to approach each question

-Intensive working of a structured writing frame for each language question for both papers

child’s skills
