I work for another very prestigious tutoring company that hires less than 2% of tutors who make it to their 2nd-round interviews. I provide a high level of tutoring that is billed out through this company at a rate of $125-$152 per hour. Through WyzAnt, I offer my services for $147 per hour; if you purchase a package through WyzAnt, you can receive up to a 15% discount that would reduce my rate $124.95 per hour. Because it is important to me to provide high quality tutoring to students and families that cannot afford my full rate, I do offer discounts for students and families that qualify. Please contact me for more information.

I am an English and writing tutor with a degree from U.C. Berkeley. I went through a formal tutor training program and specialize in students in junior high, high school, and college, but I also work with younger students and adults as well. I have a lot of experience with students with ADD/ADHD and learning disabilities. I particularly enjoy tailoring my teaching style to suit each unique individual. My motto is "Whatever it takes!" If it's humor that's needed, we'll use humor. If it's strict discipline and accountability for assignments that's needed, we'll do that. Everyone learns and thrives in different ways and for different reasons. My aim is to find what makes you or your child tick and expand on those strengths to help achieve your goals.

Although I majored in English literature in my undergraduate studies, I can relate to those who struggle with reading and writing. In 8th grade I had a terrible English teacher and went on to high school completely unprepared. Fortunately, my 9th grade English teacher was amazing and changed my world. I started the year with the lowest grade in the class for the first paper. I ended the year with an A and a love of English literature. I have been incredibly privileged to have had a number of gifted teachers and tutors in my life, and I strive to give this same gift to others. I would be honored to help you or your child with any kind of reading or writing need. I also tutor other writing-based subjects, such as history. Additionally, I offer tutoring for study skills, test-taking strategies, organization, and time management.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with students of all ages and have more experience with students ages 9-12. I have tutored these students in all subjects and worked with children with learning disabilities, difficulties with focusing, and staying organized. I enjoy exploring each student's unique strengths and challenges to help them love learning.

ESL/ESOL

I provide unique and customized ESL/ESOL one-on-one tutoring and group classes. Rather than teaching from a textbook, I provide multiple assessment tests to students and clients to gauge their level of English ability and their areas of greatest challenge. Based on the results of these oral and written tests, I create a custom curriculum that targets their specific challenges and goals around grammar, vocabulary, speaking, writing, reading, pronunciation, etc.

I have been trained by an advanced ESL teacher who has taught ESL for over thirty years. My specialty is being able to teach effective group classes to students who are at vastly different levels. This works particularly well for corporations who want to provide an ESL class, but either do not have enough employees to offer several different classes at different levels or want to first try a pilot class, before committing to classes at different levels.

Zeina is a real professional!!! — I can recommend Zeina for both private classes and groups. We experienced a lot of tutors but chose her. Zeina is a professional and the most knowledgeable person. She is a really great teacher, very strong and she knows what to do. She is very responsible for preparing for the lessons, she doesn't miss a single detail. Yes, she raises the bar quite high, but we'd prefer this teacher. ...
