Who am I?

I am currently a final year undergraduate studying French, Spanish, and Portuguese at the University of Cambridge. I grew up bilingual, and have always been fascinated by the process of language learning. Languages open up new worlds, and I would love to share the passion that has driven my studies with you!

Who am I?

I am currently a final year undergraduate studying French, Spanish, and Portuguese at the University of Cambridge. I grew up bilingual, and have always been fascinated by the process of language learning. Languages open up new worlds, and I would love to share the passion that has driven my studies with you!

My interest in education stems from my own, somewhat unconventional experience: I spent years 9 - 11 studying at home, self-teaching my GCSEs. Just before that, I had lived in Italy, where I learnt Italian entirely through immersion as I could not speak a word of the language before I moved there! Since then, I have always pursued teaching and mentoring opportunities as I am well aware of the disorientation students can experience during their studies. I spent my third academic year teaching English in Paris, alongside having worked on the MyTutor Schools Programme to offer tuition to disadvantaged students.

About my sessions

What will we cover in tutorials?

Language learning is an individual process, even if just to pass an exam, so I encourage the tutee to guide the structure of the lessons. I endeavour to find the best approach for you, regardless of what you’re struggling with (e.g. grammar, vocabulary, or writing). I have access to a wealth of resources that I myself used, and can provide you with to further develop your skills. Lessons are engaging through my personable approach and I...

I’m considering Oxbridge.. can you help?!

Yes! I can completely appreciate how overwhelming it can be. I hope that my advice and tips can help you make a successful application, whichever stage you may be at. I am happy to organise mock interviews and to support you in writing a Personal Statement.

I'd like some career advice, but have no idea where to start..?

In most cases, what you study doesn't define your career but that doesn't mean laying out some future steps and aspirations isn't helpful. The landscape for recruitment is now changing very fast and as someone who has worked in education, finance, and consulting - I have a wide range of experiences which I can share with you to help you orientate yourself.

Zahra is a excellent tutor, she has helped my daughter to improve the grammar points, sentence formation and is now helping a lot with exam writing. My Daughter has increased her confidence and results are visible in the school. Happy to recommend Zahra.

Zahra is an excellent tutor. My son is in year 9 and has to do his french GCSE this year.....his French wasn’t very great in year 7 and since he’s been on this journey with Zahra he has come up in leaps and bounds and he always has a positive comment after each lesson. He definitely has a better understanding of the language and has grasped the concept of listening, speaking and writing very well. His grades has improved and it’s definitely money well spent and won’t hesitate to recommend her.

Every lesson with Zahra is so helpful. Her explanations are always clear and easy to understand. Going through the different exercises, grammar and new vocabulary helped to improve my Spanish a lot. Zahra is very positive, hardworking and nice and I really recommend her as a tutor.
