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 23 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. I teach locally in Aylesbury, UK, and also give online lessons via ZOOM/SKYPE/MICROSOFT TEAMS.

Here are some testimonials:


“I’m really happy with the progress that my son has made with Novid. My son feels more confident and is able to challenge himself even more. Novid is a very experienced tutor and will definitely recommend to all.

Thank you Novid”


“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.”
