Personal Description:

I have a Post graduate teaching Qualification (PGCE) with many years teaching experience and a Masters in Sociology from the London School of Economics. I specialise in KS1 & 2 Primary SATS exams. Part of the first lesson is spent assessing students.(the first lesson is free). I can then target areas where students may be struggling and help them to understand what the question is asking. I review material regularly to ensure students are learning. I help with exam technique which will reduce nerves and help improve students confidence. I do specialise in teaching students with difficulties in reading, writing, spelling, maths motor skills.
I am happy to discuss any concerns or queries that parents have about their children progress without obligation. I like to keep my tuition fees very affordable so that all students have the opportunity to benefit from tuition.

Tutoring Experience:

Over the last ten years, I have been tutoring on a regular basis and have worked with a wide range of abilities including learning disabilities. All my students make fast progress and gain self-confidence. They find it easier to keep up in class and achieve their potential. I am well up to date with the latest teaching methods and curriculum. Before that I spent many years teaching students from many different backgrounds and abilities including sixth form, Further Education and Adult students.
I am friendly, kind and caring and can motivate children of all backgrounds, levels and needs. I love tutoring so please get in touch and lets get started.

I have lots of life experience as a parent. I have travelled widely and taught abroad in Africa.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to assess a student during the first lesson and then help them become effective learners and achieve success in the classroom. By checking their 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. I like to know what topics they are currently doing school in order to also work parallel to the school. I find this helps students to better understand the teacher in the classroom.Please see my 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.
