Information about Zahra
With over seven years of teaching experience as well as leading psychology in my school I am confident in my ability to support students and to help them excel. The ability to devote time to individual students is something that a classroom full of students does not always allow for. Tutoring allows me to support students and help them to strive and fulfil their goals and to even exceed their expectations. Sociology and psychology are both written subjects that require particular skills in order to be successful, I have the ability to teach students these skills. As a qualified teacher, I also have access to additional resources that I am able to share with students that will support them further. I will establish a plan of action depending on the needs of the individual in order for them to be successful. I have also supported students who are studying the AS/A Level independently out of school by teaching them the whole of the content needed in order to excel and achieve A/A* grades.
I am also available to act as a proof reader for university psychology/sociology assignments. I do this often and I am able to identify areas for improvement in order for students to attain a top grade.
I am currently doing a doctorate in Educational and Child Psychology at UCL. The skills that I am learning and developing will allow me to stretch and challenge all my students further. This has also allowed me to develop more advanced essay writing, critical analysis and research skills.
Availability: My availability varies depending on my work timetable. Please get in touch for further information about my current availability.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I am a qualified psychology and sociology teacher specialising in use of the AQA exam board. I have a BSc in Psychology from Goldsmiths University and I have an MSc in Developmental and Educational Psychology from UCL Institute of Education. I also have a PGCE from UCL Institute of Education. I am currently studying on the Doctorate in Educational and Child Psychology at UCL.
As a year 13 form tutor I have supported numerous students with their university personal statements so I am also available to offer support with this also.
I am also available to act as a proof reader for university psychology/sociology assignments. I WILL NOT WRITE/COMPLETE ASSIGNMENTS ON BEHALF of people.
I have also supported students who are studying the AS/A Level independently out of school by teaching them the whole of the content needed in order to excel and achieve an A/A* grade.
Feedback For Zahra (11)
Thank goodness we found Zahra! An excellent A Level Psychology tutor. After being let down massively by staff absence at school my daughter was desperate to get a good grade in order to get her uni place. Zahra was so helpful my daughter got her enthusiasm back and got the grade she needed. Highly recommended.
Zahra has tutored my son for A`Level Psychology (10 1hour sessions, so far). She has reinforced his learning and understanding in relation to his school work and has supported him with improving his AO3 knowledge of the subject. He has found Zahra to be professional and knowledgeable throughout.
In addition, I have found Zahra to be flexible with timings/days and I would recommend her as a tutor.
Zahra has helped me a lot for AS AQA Psychology, she is a very friendly and approachable tutor, she taught and helped me consolidate on topics that i struggled with very effectively, and i understood the topics very clearly after. She also gives amazing advice on revision and planning too.
Thank you so much
Excellent tutor so glad to have found her.
Zahra was very helpful with my uni psychology assignment that i was struggling with. Helped me with planning,structure and proofread my assignment. Also helped me understand different theories that i was not sure about. Her support helped me complete my assignment.
Miss Zahra has helped me a lot with my Sociology and Psychology A2 especially with areas that I found difficult as we went over AS work which I was previously taught and new theories to make sure I understand every aspect. I have made a significant amount of progress in my work thanks to her tuition and I`m now more comfortable asking questions. I would definitely recommend her due to her experience, qualifications and kind nature. I would also like to thank her for taking the time to help me.
I would like to say that Zahra was excellent and a professional tutor for my daughter, she explained things that helped my daughter feel confident going into her exams. I would highly recommend this tutor
I would like to say a big thank you to Zahra for taking your time and effort in accommodating us at such short notice.

Zahra has had a very positive approach and my son has made good progress with essay writing as a result. She is motivational and well organised. She is a very good teacher and I can recommend her highly.
Miss Zahra was a really nice tutor and I found that her tutorials were very useful. I was only with her for a few weeks because I decided to leave the course and repeat the year. Hopefully next year she`ll be my tutor again, if she will have me. Other then that, I would recommend her to others as she has interest in our achievement. Good Luck to all!
Before I started with psychology lesson with Zahra, I was struggling to understand the subject. Zahra helped me that she went through the lesson together, she gave me more explanations and examples that she enabled me to more clear and understanding the subject. Many thanks Zahra.
Miss Zahra helped me understand sociology, which I thought was impossible to understand. She explained all the theories and all the necessary things in detailed yet simple way for me to understand!
Looking forward to our future lessons. Thank you
