About me

Hi there! My name is Zuleikha and I am currently studying psychology at Warwick University. When I was studying for my A-Levels, English Literature challenged me, as did my other subjects, but it was the one I enjoyed the most. This is because Literature was unique in that it doesn’t involve memorising and regurgitating topics onto an exam paper.

Hi there! My name is Zuleikha and I am currently studying psychology at Warwick University. When I was studying for my A-Levels, English Literature challenged me, as did my other subjects, but it was the one I enjoyed the most. This is because Literature was unique in that it doesn’t involve memorising and regurgitating topics onto an exam paper. Rather, it requires the developing of analytical skills and the ability to recognise techniques and themes instantly. As your tutor I want to help you to develop your ideas effectively and find the best way for you to present them. When it comes to your Literature exams, you need to be able to identify a technique, develop ideas, link it both to other themes as well as wider contexts and all that within a limited period of time. I want to work with you to develop the most efficient method and make it habitual, so that your exam season is less daunting.

About my sessions

Initially, getting to know you and your current abilities is my priority. From gaining an idea about your thought processes, we can work together to develop that and adapt them to the tasks at hand and allow us to have a projection of what we want to achieve during our sessions together. This could be learning how to identify techniques faster, how to better link to wider contexts, or even just how to effectively present your ideas in essay format. With reference to contexts, Literature is in...

Initially, getting to know you and your current abilities is my priority. From gaining an idea about your thought processes, we can work together to develop that and adapt them to the tasks at hand and allow us to have a projection of what we want to achieve during our sessions together. This could be learning how to identify techniques faster, how to better link to wider contexts, or even just how to effectively present your ideas in essay format. With reference to contexts, Literature is inherently linked with history and specifically during GCSE and A-Levels, being critical is essential to reach those higher grades. Therefore, I’d prepare activities and sessions specifically catered to furthering these skills. Depending on what works for you, we can experiment with mind-maps, flashcards and/or mini essay-writing sessions. Something I liked to do which we could try was write a quote out and then brainstorm ideas relating to it all around it. Practice of essay-writing is, in my opinion, one of the best ways to practice for the exam itself, especially if done in timing conditions, so that will definitely be something we’d do in our sessions together and then subsequently go through your work and together identify areas to improve on. Working to adapt to your goals will be my priority and I’d simply want to share ideas whilst better equipping you for your exam.
