Dear potential students and parents,
I am a graduate of Oxford University (MA History) and U.C. Berkeley (BA History, English Literature) and currently work as a teacher at Elite Educational Institute, where I've taught SAT Writing, SAT Reading, AP US, and AP Euro Prep classes, as well as general English language tutoring.
Though my academic credentials should speak for themselves, I'd like to emphasize that I'm extremely knowledgeable both in the specific details of History and English, the names and dates and places of a certain period and the grammar and structure of a certain texts, but also in the general ideas of the two subjects: I can help you contextualize the historical details into larger patterns for longer essays and help you analyze works of literature in the larger literary movements.
Additionally, my relative youth allows me to better connect with students, who see me as an older brother or friend rather than as another formidable teacher. This better connection allows me to help them understand the larger goals behind what they are learning, to remind them the reasons that History and English are important for their development, and to never let them forget that in the midst of all the tests and essays they will be writing in high school there is genuine intellectual advancement to be had, and they will emerge into college and from there into the world as more enlightened and sophisticated human beings.
Therefore, what I value most of all is making learning engaging and continually challenging students to think about the bigger picture.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in History from U.C. Berkeley and a Masters Degree in History from Oxford University, with a focus on Europe. I also have tutored AP European History Prep at Elite Educational Institute.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in History from U.C. Berkeley and a Masters in History from Oxford University. Additionally, I've been an active member of Model UN for 5 years, simulating various governments and political situations.
I've been an active part of Model United Nations for 5 years throughout college. I was Head Delegate for my Junior Year and President in my Senior Year, leadership positions under which I conducted various lessons and tutorials on public speaking. I won numerous awards as a debater through Model U.N. including Best Delegate at Harvard's Conference 2010 and Best Delegate at World MUN 2012.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in History from U.C. Berkeley and a Master's Degree in History from Oxford University, with an emphasis on Global history. I've also taught History at Elite Educational Institute.
Very caring and patient tutor. — Aatif is an excellent tutor we have had thus far. He is positive, enthusiastic, and caring. More important, he was able to get my daughter to be involved in the sessions by asking her questions. My daughter really likes Aatif. ...
