« 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 response

Sydney has been a pleasure to work with. It’s always a pleasure to find parents who support and encourage their child’s learning as much as the tutor does! Teamwork is vital, and I appreciate the fact that Sydney applies so much effort to succeed in every area of English! Hard work and perseverance make a winner, and Sydney is just that!

I've had the privilege of Zehra tutoring my one daughter since June 2019 and my second daughter since April of this year - Zerha is fantastic! I highly recommend her services. Her personality is easy going but assertive. My girls get along with her very well. She is timely and very organized with assigning work and the one thing I appreciate the most is that Zehra checks homework thoroughly with the kids so they recognize where there needs to be improvement. I've seen major progress in language definition and especially in spelling words as she has great teaching resources. It would be my pleasure if need be to provide a verbal recommendation.

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!
