Personal Description:

I have lots of life experience as a parent. I have travelled widely and taught abroad in Africa. I have excellent communication skills which are always important to model well for students. I love teaching. I am friendly, kind and caring and can motivate children of all backgrounds, levels and needs.
My first lesson is free.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a professionally qualified and experienced teacher/tutor. I teach primary, English and Maths, prepare students for Sats, literacy, study skills and offer homework support. I am able to quickly find out where students are struggling and help them improve their performance. My students make fast progress and grow in confidence. This improvement is quickly picked up at school.
I also focus on improving a child's mental maths ability and verbal language skills which help improve a students ability to speak out in class and keep up with the teacher.
I have many years experience of teaching special needs children with Moderate Learning Disability and Dyslexia Students with Learning Disabilities can make great progress with one to one tuition for example, by offering them specific strategies to overcome memory problems.
I also tutor adults on academic courses who need help with structuring their assignments and improving study skills. I can also proofread short and long dissertations.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to first understand a students method of learning and then assist them in broadening their range of independent learning skills. By checking understanding and consolidating basics, my students quickly gain confidence and make progress. I also encourage them to question where they do not understand so that areas that need improvement can be worked on.
Please see my recent reviews:
' Shahida's been great with our daughter Lauren,both my wife and I are very happy with how the lessons
are going.

'My son was struggling with the basics in maths and Shahida is kind, understanding and patient and makes a really effort to ensure that the hour she spends with my son is helpful and educational. It has made a "marked improvement" (quoting my son's teacher) to his maths ability in class and my son now says that "maths with Shahida is his favourite after school club"Shahida was very helpful.

She made corrections to my essay and helped me to improve my written English. I strongly recommend Shahida. Lucy.
