My name is Zad and I study Comparative (World) Literature, German and Theatre Studies at the University of Glasgow. I would love to help you achieve your entry requirements! I tutor English/World Lit, German and Spanish. I especially look forward to fellow IB students, since I know IB exams very well.


I've tutored and I've been tutored! Being on both sides of the spectrum gave me a good insight into what the students need: an adjustable tutor. I want to get to know you first and then work within your comfort zone, finding the best way FOR YOU to go about the exams.  


Also, I've worked with both disadvantaged and private-school students as well as with members of different minority groups. I warmly welcome everyone to contact me as ours will be a safe and comfortable space.


Please do book an instant video meeting or message me with a different proposed time, if you can't make any of the available slots! Hope to meet you soon!

About my sessions

We will first meet up (free 15 minutes) and discuss what your goals are, how you normally study and how you behave in an exam situation (do you plan your essay, do you immediately write, etc). You can also tell me what your study/exam problems are. This will help me personalise the way in which I help you.

We will first meet up (free 15 minutes) and discuss what your goals are, how you normally study and how you behave in an exam situation (do you plan your essay, do you immediately write, etc). You can also tell me what your study/exam problems are. This will help me personalise the way in which I help you.


Example - IB Literature Paper One prep:

We would first revise figures of speech and stylistic devices. Then we would do a couple of slow and detailed analyses. After you develop good analytical skills, I would give you a number of poems to analyse in a short period of time in order to practice quick analysis - an essential skill for your exam. Following that, we should work on structuring the commentary and practice writing under time pressure. For the final stage I always suggest doing past papers, with us later discussing your answers in detail. Going through all these steps can take a number of sessions; we will take it as slowly or as fast as you need.


While I will heavily focus on the exam structure, I will also do my best to help you find your own way of approaching the task at hand. The most important thing I try to achieve with tutoring is to guide students towards improving their own skills, rather than force them to try and mimic somebody else’s. Students who work within their own skillset are confident, unique and brilliant. 


Hope to meet you soon!
