I lived and grew up in Jordan until I was 26 and since then I have lived and studied in the United States for eight years. I received my AA degree from Consumes River College, my BA in political science, and my MA from California State University, Sacramento. I have my unique cultural background experiences that shaped my learning and knowledge acquisition. I developed self-confidence and a sense of independence at an early age. Plus, I worked very hard to sharpen my analytical skills, and more importantly, I was able to adjust quickly and ease the cultural shock that many students faced.
I have lived in two different cultures and have gained specific cultural knowledge as well as personal experiences in living in both the American and Middle Eastern cultures. I have the ability to relate well to people of ethnic and cultural diversity as well as assist students in their educational processes. I have supervised, coached children, assisted with homework assignments under the direct supervision of the classroom teacher. Furthermore, I scored papers and assisted the classroom teacher in curriculum areas. Also, I have tutored students in English, math, and science. In addition to that, I have the knowledge and the ability to manage multiple tasks under pressure.
I have been working with Special Education students to prepare them to understand the concept of the math problems and how to solve the problems by explaining to students how to use math in their daily activity. One of the activity we took the students to a visit a grocery store . The teacher and myself thought them when they go to the grocery store and they want to buy a pound of apple. The cost of the pound is 1.49 and they bought 2 pounds There is 2 ways to solve this problem by additing 1.49 twice and rounding 49 cents to 50 cents and subtract 2 cents from the total so 1.50+1.50 = 3.00 - .2= 2.98 , So the students will learn to see the apple touch it weight it do the addition on paper and also use their phone to calculate the prices
