Private Tuition

I am an experienced English teacher, tutor and examiner with a real passion for my subject. I have studied up to MA level and I love teaching. I serve the Aylesbury area, in Bucks, UK. Students attend my tuition centre.

I have more than nineteen years of experience teaching 11 PLUS, English language, literature, Media, Communication studies and Drama at Key Stage Three, GCSE and A Level. I have also successfully examined for A Level English with AQA and I have many years experience of private tutoring.

Tutoring Approach

I offer detailed guidance and practice through discussion, shared reading, targeted questioning, modelling and providing resources for students to use. I also use online homework and reading programmes to boost vocabulary and reading skills for students. Please note that I teach small groups in Aylesbury only and all the feedback I have received has been from students who were taught in groups of four. I do not offer one-to-one tuition or online tuition.

Here are some testimonials:

FROM TERRY 

“Mr Shaid has been extremely useful with helping my son prepare both his A Level English Literature coursework portfolio, and for his upcoming exam. His sessions really improved my son’s understanding of the texts, and the arguments and suggestions presented by Mr Shaid aided the development of his essays and writing ability. My son feels that these sessions have helped him tremendously, and I appreciate all Mr. ‘s efforts to make time to see him.

I would thoroughly recommend Mr Shaid to anyone in the area seeking any tutoring help with English.”

FROM HOPESON 

“Our first meeting was very positive. My son was put at ease by Novid. My son is very much motivated and looking forward to the next lesson. Further feedback at the end of the tuition.”

He is a friendly and excellent teacher, and is supporting me to: learn grammar, enhance my vocabulary, my writing and speaking skills. He is very professional, but at the same time accurate and flexible as a teacher. He works with passion and competence.”
