Approachable University of Edinburgh student specialising in personal statement editing and tutoring English (language and literature), with 4 years of experience.

Methodology

Hi, I'm an undergraduate at the University of Edinburgh, studying English Literature, French and Arabic. Whether you're struggling with crafting your personal statement or perfecting your coursework, I would love to help! I really enjoy the critical thinking involved in formulating arguments and I find working with students to be a very rewarding and creative process.

Experience

I am highly experienced at tutoring GCSE and A-Level and also have some experience tutoring IB. UCAS applications are my forte. I specialise in helping students craft their personal statement, but I can also help with English, Economics or French! I have had 4 years of experience being a private tutor.

Helping students with their personal statements is something that I really enjoy and I boast a high success rate, with my students receiving offers from top institutions across the UK and gaining a new perspective on their chosen subject. As one of the most daunting (but crucial) documents a student will ever write, it is often a struggle to write an original personal statement. I can help with drawing up initial ideas and provide guidance throughout the drafting process, to ensure a unique approach that will have an admissions officer hooked.

I also coach debating and public speaking, which I am really passionate about. Having run workshops and competing in competitions across the globe (I’ve even performed a TEDx talk!), I have the experience required to develop students’ critical thinking skills and boost their confidence in formulating ideas and presenting them with confidence.

Zara's CV

One of the key aspects of a tutorial is that the student is engaged in what they are learning. Enjoyment makes any content a lot easier to understand and recall. After having an excellent teacher at GCSE, I began to really enjoy (and succeed in) English Literature and I hope to replicate this effect with my students. I am happy to tutor any aspect of English that you may need help with, whether it be creative writing or a close analysis of Shakespeare. I am friendly, patient and have a lot of experience with various learning styles.

I'm currently studying English Literature, French and Arabic at the University of Edinburgh, prior to which I achieved A*A*A in English Literature, Economics and French at A Level.

My sessions will be tailored to your individual needs. Every student learns in a different way, so I adapt my teaching style to what suits them. I can help with anything from exam technique, to drafting coursework, to going over a tricky concept.

Please let me know beforehand what you are looking to cover in the session. It helps me to prepare for it, so that we can really make the most of the time. Whether you need a one off session to clarify a topic that you are struggling to grasp, or a series of sessions to build up your confidence in a subject - I can certainly help!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
