About me

Hi! My name's Zak and I am currently in my fifth year at the University of Leeds studying a BA (Hons) in Chinese and Russian. Within these four years, I've spent one year studying at Moscow State University and another in Shanghai Jiao Tong University. These two years were undoubtedly the best years of my life and they pushed my language competency to a completely new level. I have obtained a first in every year so far and am expected to do so in my fifth and final year.

Hi! My name's Zak and I am currently in my fifth year at the University of Leeds studying a BA (Hons) in Chinese and Russian. Within these four years, I've spent one year studying at Moscow State University and another in Shanghai Jiao Tong University. These two years were undoubtedly the best years of my life and they pushed my language competency to a completely new level. I have obtained a first in every year so far and am expected to do so in my fifth and final year.


With this, during my two years abroad, I taught both in schools and privately to students from age 5-18 and so fully understand what qualities a good teacher should possess. I am patient, dedicated and hard working and truly understand my subjects.


These are languages I am absolutely passionate about and I hope you will be able to get a sense of that during my classes!

About my sessions

Having gone through the entire school system myself, I fully understand what students find difficult and what teachers in school may gloss over presuming it's already understood.


I will cater classes to your needs; whether that's explaining complex grammar, helping writing essays or simply preparing exercises, I am able to do so efficiently. I know exactly what examiners are looking for and will help you to learn the tips and tricks which have always got me the top...

Having gone through the entire school system myself, I fully understand what students find difficult and what teachers in school may gloss over presuming it's already understood.


I will cater classes to your needs; whether that's explaining complex grammar, helping writing essays or simply preparing exercises, I am able to do so efficiently. I know exactly what examiners are looking for and will help you to learn the tips and tricks which have always got me the top grades.


For those on a pre-existing language course, I think it's best to start with some general conversation in the language to get the mind working. Then some more specific grammatical exercises based around the topic and some help with formulating sentences - whether spoken or written.


For those just testing the waters with a new language, I have specific courses well-designed to teach you useful and engaging topics that will enhance your grammatical proficiency and fluency without even thinking about it.


For those with upcoming exams, I will get you that A*; for those just learning, I will make learning the language easy and enjoyable! I am looking forward to meeting you.
