Hi, I’m Zarah and I am in my second year of an English and Creative Writing degree at the University of Birmingham. I have been working in a tuition centre for over a year, supporting students of all ages and abilities and learning the best teaching techniques. 


English is vilified to an extent during secondary school and gains a bad reputation with many questioning how you can possibly ‘learn’ it or revise it. I am here to help with that and hopefully prove how exciting, engaging and enriching English Literature can be.


For many years I have worked closely with students, supporting their wellbeing as a Peer Mentor and as a Key Stage Three Prefect. I also ran a creative writing club where I worked closely to enhance the creativity and clarity of the student’s writing. I may be fairly new to tutoring but GCSEs are fresh in my memory. I remember the steps I took to achieve 6 A* and 5 As and want to share this knowledge and experience with others.

I can help with planning, drafting and polishing essays, making sure you meet each part of the specification and have a good understanding of how to get the marks. We will also discuss interesting and personal responses to the texts, making sure your work stands out and does not resemble everyone else's.


I can also help with planning your revision, creating a timetable to avoid stressing about the workload.
