« Perfect! I recently had the pleasure of locating Zehra on Superprof to help with tutoring my daughter in language skills. We've been working together now for almost two months and it's been a wonderful experience. Zehra is friendly, punctual, very quick at responding to my communique and is always prepared with excellent work sheets for her visit. Homework is reviewed and checked in detail and I've seen major progress already in my daughters writing abilities. Overall excellent experience! I highly recommend Zehra for your tutoring needs. »

Perfect! I recently had the pleasure of locating Zehra on Superprof to help with tutoring my daughter in language skills. We've been working together now for almost two months and it's been a wonderful experience. Zehra is friendly, punctual, very quick at responding to my communique and is always prepared with excellent work sheets for her visit. Homework is reviewed and checked in detail and I've seen major progress already in my daughters writing abilities. Overall excellent experience! I highly recommend Zehra for your tutoring needs.

Zehra's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Zehra — Children inspire me in so many ways! Having had the opportunity of working with students in and outside the classroom over the last two decades, my experiences have taught me so much, and I hope to have nurtured a life long love of learning within each of my students along the way! The journey of Educating has been as enlightening as arriving at our destination together.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Zehra — As an avid reader and writer, I am passionate about sharing my love of great literature amongst other subjects with my students. Great literature exists for all stages and ages of life, and explores ideas, values, scenarios which may be relevant to each one of us in understanding our challenges and tackling these, along life’s journey! Passion may be conveyed to students, requiring motivation, to be inspired in certain subjects they may find challenging.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Zehra — The possibilities of working individually with a particular student, offering undivided attention to focus upon that child’s unique needs, challenges and the learning style most effective for the student, are all factors lending themselves to why tutoring results in more successful learning outcomes for each child. Unlocking each child’s potential for Success in any subject area I teach makes me a SuperProf!
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Zehra — Many colleagues, parents and teachers have inspired me in my Teaching and Tutoring journey! Mrs.Gray my High School English Literature teacher inspired me to look for the messages conveyed through Great literature and find the relevance of these ideas and feelings through time and space, in particular.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Zehra — Work smart, work hard and think creatively out of the box to Suceed and overcome obstacles along the way! A positive attitude towards facing and resolving life’s challenges works wonders!
