    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!

    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 £30.00 and £50.00 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.
