Education is my passion. I naturally love to learn, challenge myself, and help others do the same. I earned a B.A. in Psychology then began teaching Middle School English. You would think this career choice and degree were unrelated, but it's actually all that kept the middle schoolers from driving me crazy! While teaching, I earned a B.S. in the Biological Sciences and earned a biotechnology certificate afterwards.

During this period, I also kept up a healthy volunteer pastime teaching a weekly Arabic class at NOVA Southeastern University through a student association. I taught the class every Friday for over six years. For me the prospect of education and educating far outweigh the Friday night party potential. You may assume me a nerd if that tickles your fancy. I will not object.

For fun I learn. Terse, I know, but that encompasses much. For example, I've taught myself two languages. When conversing, native speakers consider me a native as well before I inform them otherwise. Vanity is not my aim, but I do hope to inspire. There isn't anything that anyone can't do if they put their mind and elbow grease into it.

I'm a student by nature and an instructor by talent. Students often remark that I make complex subjects simple - the truth is that the subjects were always simple to begin with. I hope you plan a session and see how simple your subject actually is too.

To follow are some of my policies:

Using the WyzAnt discount, you can save up to 15% making the hourly price approximately 170.00. I encourage you to take advantage of this option.

Please note that if your location is outside of my driving radius, I would charge an extra 30.00 to cover the driving time and associated expenses.

My cancellation notice is just 5 hours in advance of the scheduled session. This allows me enough time to schedule another student in your place should you need to cancel. There is a one hour minimum session time.

Thank you, and I look forward to helping you excel!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

If you're having trouble with math, it's likely that you're relying on memorizing procedures and rules. The only problem with that is as you memorize more and more material, you'll eventually come to a point where you'll have trouble distinguishing one formula from another and even when to apply them.

To excel in math is to comprehend, and that's exactly what I help my students do. We build from the fundamentals and continue building. I'll equip you with what you need to better understand the language of mathematics.

These skills you'll take with you to all of your future math classes, and you may even end up enjoying mathematics more than I do!

Algebra 2

The principles required for mastery of both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 are identical. The expression of these principles, however, is a little different.

The hurdles people usually confront with Algebra 2 come mainly from their relying on memorizing procedures and rules. The only problem with that is as you memorize more and more material, you'll eventually come to a point where you'll have trouble distinguishing one formula from another and even when to apply them.

To excel in math is to comprehend, and that's exactly what I help my students do. We build from the fundamentals and continue building. I'll equip you with what you need to better understand the language of mathematics.

These skills you'll take with you to all of your future math classes, and you may even end up enjoying mathematics more than I do!

Arabic

I have volunteered teaching a weekly, Modern Standard Arabic class at NOVA Southeastern University for over 6 years through one of their student associations. I have also taught Arabic at a South Florida private school for 1 year.

I'll teach you how to read and write Arabic, the proper phonetics, grammar, and how to converse. I'll also supply you with effective strategies and online resources to help you master the language. I love what I do, and over my many of years of teaching, students often tell me how much they love it too!

Biology

I have earned my Bachelor of Science degree in the Biological Sciences and a certificate in biotechnology. The depth of Biology makes it engrossing and fun. Allow me to prove it to you!

Chemistry

Chemistry is amazing! It's also not difficult at all when you understand the main, underlying principles that guide chemistry problem solving. I'll give you examples to make chemistry more coherent, relevant and less abstract. If you are willing to work hard, what seemed to be a foreign language will become a healthy second language! Please note that I currently only teach high school chemistry.

Drawing

I used to work as a storyboard artist and Flash animator as well as a designer. I will teach you important fundamentals such as composition, forms, values, perspective and gesture which will help you better translate what's on your mind onto paper.

To draw is to express yourself. Everyone can draw, and I'd love to help you realize that!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught various elementary school subjects one-on-one to students struggling with math, science, reading and writing. My experience instructing elementary school students as a tutor for many years helped refine my approach and tool set, and I have had great success. Poor grasp of fundamental concepts are often at the heart of poor performance in elementary school. For example, many of my students improved writing proficiency after being engaged to think clearly about a concept and then to apply this skill in original work.

English

I have taught English professionally as a middle school teacher. It goes without saying that I was certified by the State of Florida to teach English. My methods are unique and lessons stress application and genuine learning.

Grammar

Grammar is essential to written and verbal communication. Having command of English grammar allows one to vary sentence structure, be more expressive and exact, and make an impact.

Hindi

I grew up speaking Urdu and Hindi. If you would like to learn how to speak either, I can be of service. If you would like to learn how to read and write, then that I can only offer for Urdu.

Urdu and Hindi are very closely related, and in colloquial speech there is not much distinction. However, the written characters for Hindi are based on Sanskrit while those of Urdu are based on Arabic.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra helps you transition into more abstract math. I'll present the class to you in a way that makes this transition clear, coherent, and comprehensive. We will build from the fundamentals and continue building. You'll end up better understanding the language of mathematics.

These skills you'll take with you to all of your future math classes, and you may even end up enjoying mathematics more than I do!

Study Skills

Students of any subject must approach their studies with commitment, discipline, efficiency and effort to do well. Through my decade of teaching experience, working with students of all learning styles, dispositions and needs, I have developed excellent methods to improve my students' study skills. Whether it's organizing folders, information, time or thoughts, study skills are key to academic success.
