Reviews (2)

She is really good, clear prepared and knows how to carry an unwilling child along.
Zakiya was very pleasant and calm and she struck an immediate chord with the children. She assessed their levels through gamified imaginative description and promised to put a learning plan together for the boys. So far we are very satisfied with her and hope to retain her on a regular basis.
Mathematics is a compulsory core subject which requires some level of understanding. For some this is difficult and that is understandable however many young people often find it really isn't as hard as it seems and sometimes find it is fun. I specialize in basic and upper level mathematics, including Statistics and Decision mathematics alongside all levels of English tutoring. I am organised, determined and soft spoken. I believe that focus and patience is the key. Occasionally some learners just need time. I hope I am the perfect match for you My sessions are for both young and older children.

Arzu
Английский язык для русскоговорящих: грамматика, чтение, разговорный и письменный английский.
Помогу в изучении английского языка. Будем практиковать письменный и устный английский, работать над грамматикой. Помогу начать изучение языка с нуля. Также для ребят, учащихся в школе, буду помогать со школьной программой и с домашними заданиями. Также могу помочь с подготовкой к экзаменам как к государственным (ЕГЭ), так и к международным, таким как IELTS, TOEFL, SAT (имела опыт по сдаче каждого из перечисленных экзаменов). Так как большое внимание уделяется при сдаче экзаменов на письменную часть, будем расширять глоссарий, учиться логично аргументировать свою позицию. Большое внимание будем уделять разговорному английскому, общаться на разные темы, что поможет также расширить словарный запас, смотреть видеоролики на английском, обсуждать их.

Do you want to impress potential clients with your fluent English? Are you hoping to thrive at an English-speaking university? Or maybe you just want to finally watch your favorite movies without subtitles? If so, this is the class for you. As a passionate language learner myself (I'm currently learning my sixth), I understand that mastering a language starts with finding a reason to be excited about the language that you're studying. In this class, we'll work together to tailor every lesson to your personal interests and needs. By focusing on practical, real-world materials and skills, we'll emphasize the elements of English that matter to you, and bring you closer to achieving your goals.

Thomas
Chemistry Tutor from the UK (teaching beginner to undergrad)
An enthusiastic chemistry tutor from the UK who will teach you all the aspects of chemistry which currently don't make sense. Chemistry is an incredibly enjoyable and useful subject which many students struggle to grasp at the beginning of their studies. Like a jigsaw puzzle, chemistry becomes easier and clearer the more you understand. I aim to teach you or your child in a relaxed and fun manner which hopefully allows them to understand the nuances of chemistry. I have a BSc Chemistry from the University of Nottingham and I'm currently studying my MSc in Research in Chemistry at Universiteit Leiden. Also, I studied under the International Baccalaureate so I'm able to help with anything related.

I have specialized in the field of Political Science, International Relations, International Law and Security Studies.
