    Hello! My name is Shimza Ali, and I am a 3rd year medic at the University of Glasgow. I am passionate about teaching and learning, and I hope to make you just as motivated! Before I applied to Medical School, I gained some tutoring experience at both a tutoring organisation, as well as volunteering for a volunteering tutoring organisation to offer educational support for pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. I found this to be an extremely rewarding experience to see pupils grow in confidence, as well as seeing their progress in their studies. I have worked with a wide range of pupils of different age groups and abilities and I relish the opportunity to support other aspiring medics in their transition to medical school! In my free time, I enjoy doing various activities including volunteering, arts and crafts and badminton which has helped me to grow as a well-organised, supportive and creative individual. I hope to support students by tailoring teaching towards their specific needs, strengths and weaknesses, as well as gaining confidence. I have also further developed my interpersonal skills such as communication skills as well as leadership skills through being a student mentor for aspiring medics at my university. This has meant that I have been able to help support and offer application advice for school pupils, and I hope to bring the same forward here!

    Offer from OxfordA*A*A*A At A-LevelA* in EPQTop 5% in TSA

    Hello! My name is Tareef and I am currently a 1st year student studying at the University of Oxford.
    For some context, I attended an underperforming state school for my secondary school (only 25% of students get a grade 5 in English and Maths), yet I managed to achieve the highest results in my school (5 grade 9’s and 3 grade 8’s). Whilst studying for my GCSEs, I found out that tutoring other students also helped me reinforce my learning and I realised I enjoyed helping my peers also succeed by teaching them the trickier concepts on a 1-to-1 basis that they would otherwise have not received.
    After my GCSEs, I was fortunate enough to get a full scholarship to my local grammar school, which is where I did my A-Levels – achieving grades of A*A*A*A. The Sixth Form provided great tailored support throughout my Oxford application, and I hope to provide this support to capable students who have not been fortunate enough to receive the same level of support.

    Hello! 🌟 I’m thrilled to introduce myself as an enthusiastic individual who recently achieved exceptional results in my Advanced Level examinations, securing 1A* and 2A’s. This academic achievement paved the way for me to embark on an exciting journey at TIU, where I’ve been awarded a 100% scholarship.

    My passion for connecting with people is evident in my outgoing personality. I thrive on communication and have been honing this skill throughout my academic journey. My academic focus has been on business since the 7th grade, providing me with a solid foundation in the field.

    Beyond academics, I’ve found joy and fulfillment in teaching. Drawing from my experience at an English teaching company, I specialize in helping students master pronunciation and engage in basic English conversations. My time at an elementary school not only reinforced my love for teaching but also highlighted my knack for interacting with and entertaining little ones through games and activities.

    Outside the realm of education, I am a multi-faceted individual with diverse interests. Art, travel, and sports are not just hobbies; they’re outlets that fuel my creativity and sense of adventure. I find immense joy in sharing my knowledge and engaging with others, whether it’s through teaching, conversations, or collaborative activities.

    Read some of our most frequently asked questions and answers

    What is Phonics?

    Phonics is a method used to teach children how to read and write by focusing on the sounds that make up words. It involves teaching the relationships between letters (graphemes) and the sounds they represent (phonemes). By learning phonics, children can decode and spell words more effectively, which is a fundamental skill in developing strong reading and writing abilities.

    How much do Phonics tutors cost per hour?

    The cost of a Phonics tutor can vary depending on their qualifications and experience. Generally, private tutors charge between ÂŁ30.00 and ÂŁ50.00 per hour, with online lessons often slightly cheaper than in-person lessons

    Can you take Phonics lessons online?

    Yes, you can take Phonics lessons online! All of our tutors offer online tutoring, most of them through our state-of-the-art online classroom which has been built by us to meet all your needs.

    How can I support my child when learning Phonics?

    To support your child when learning phonics, start by reading together regularly. Choose phonics-based books that emphasise letter-sound relationships. Additionally, engage in fun activities like playing word games, using flashcards, and sounding out words in everyday situations. Lastly, provide a positive and encouraging environment, praising your child's efforts and progress to boost their confidence in phonics learning.
