About me

Hello! I am a student at Warwick University studying English Literature and have achieved 10 GCSEs A*-A and 3 A-levels A*-A.

About me

I have always been a high achiever and so can relate to the pressures and stress of school exams. However being a patient, friendly and engaging individual has allowed me to get through them all, never achieving less than an A grade and still manage to balance a social life! I am an enthusiastic actress, swimmer and improviser meaning I have good comminication skills, am used to working with others and have experience coaching younger people.

I am skilled and able to help with both English Literature (achieving A* at GCSE and A at A-level) and Biology (A* both GCSE and A-level) and any personal statement assistance.

I have taught swimming for two years to young people from ages 7 to 15 and worked as part of my local Youth Council and so have a large amount of experience helping individuals comprehend, apply and improve.

The Sessions

During the sessions it is important to ensure the pupil is not simply memorising information but understanding it and so being able to apply it themselves. This means a range of teaching methods will be used - first explaining the subject area with both visal aids (diagrams, photos etc) and spoken explanations. Then applying the information through practise exam questions and quizzes, and finally having the pupil explain the information back to me and so leaving them feeling confident with their newly learnt/solidified knowledge. 

I am keen to ensure the sessions are both enjoyable and interactive, leading to a new found enthusiasm for the subject! Moreover I am very friendly and patient so will encourage pupils to ask questions until they're confident we can move on.

Now what?

If you have any questions send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with and which subject you would like help with!

I can't wait to meet you and help you on your way to success! :) x

Questions Safia has answered

How do I do close analysis?

We shall look at the key terms needed for close analysis - such as metaphors, alliteration, assonance etc and build a word bank.

Then we shall practise finding these in poems / novels and once confidence at spotting and identifying these techniques, look at the reason for their presence.
