My name is Mariam and I am 20 years old. I am currently attending Diablo Valley College with my major being Neuroscience. I never knew how much I loved helping people until my first job at Lone tree Elementary school, as a teachers aid intern in the Kindergarten classes. After realizing how much I loved children, I found a job at College Nannies and Tutors and have been there since. It is a passion of mine that makes me so happy! It is the one place I can express my excitement and passion for teaching and helping children love the subject they once hated.

I hope to be the Tutor that you walk away being happy you came. Knowledge is key, and I would want nothing more than for my students to have fun learning. We all need an education, why not make it something you enjoy! My key methods are to find the weakness, and find fun ways for my students to remember their own learning methods. After all you can memorize all you want, but the only way to never forget something is to truly understand it. If there is a specific part of a lesson that my students do not understand, I like to go back to the beginning of the lesson to make sure we didn't miss anything.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I feel that I am extremely qualified to work with ADD/ADHD from my past experience at College Nannies & Tutors Inc. I worked with numerous students/children with many different disabilities. I am personally very patient and have methods to help my students want to practice/study.

Anthropology

I have taken 3 courses in Anthropology. Cultural Anthropology, Anthropology 140 (Magic Religion, and witchcraft) and Physical Anthropology.

Arabic

I was raised bilingual being taught Arabic and English side by side growing up. I am currently attending Diablo Valley College, majoring in Neuroscience.

Drawing

In high school, and while studying at DVC I have taken a total of 4 Figure drawing, painting, cartooning, and ceramics courses. I feel that I am qualified to assist students with improving there skills in this field.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor in K-6th grade from my past position as a Tutor, at College Nannies and Tutors. I have completed a child development course that helped me to understand how to help children focus and stay excited about learning. Other experiences would be from my 12 month internship at Lone tree elementary school in the Kindergarten Classes.

Public Speaking

While completing undergrad coursework at DVC, I completed two public speaking courses to master the art. Aside from this experience, my professional experience in training and presenting ideas with Wells Fargo Bank helped as well.
