Hello! I'm a tutor for biology, chemistry and biochemistry, as well as languages; French, Arabic and ESL, and other subjects. I have a BS in Biology and a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology with 3 years of teaching experience at a collegial level at: The Ohio State University - Fundamentals of Medical Biochemistry, BIOC3311/3312; and Columbus State Community College - Elementary and General Chemistry. I have tutored students in Chemistry through CHEM 1210 (CHEM 1172), Biology I and Biochemistry.

I went to a French school, from preschool to 12th grade, and learned how to speak, read and write French for all 15 years. While English is my third language, French is my second and Arabic is my native language (Lebanese Dialect). I can teach either language due to the years of experience I have in speaking, reading and writing each. I have experience teaching students from 1st grade up to graduate school.
I am passionate about educating students and challenging them while helping them reach their highest potential. I'm very patient and do my best to explain the most complex concepts in simple ways for students from different backgrounds to grasp and retain.

Feel free to message me if you have any questions or if you are interested to learn with me!

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.

Arabic

I learned Arabic for 15 years from pre-K to High school. I fluently speak, write and read it. It is also my native dialect. I have been tutoring Arabic for 11 years.

Biochemistry

With a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, I taught Fundamentals of Medical Biochemistry at The Ohio State University for 3 years. Topics included organic chem, and molecular biology as they relate to the human body.

Chemistry

I have been teaching chemistry to high school and undergraduate students for the last 4 years. I am currently an Adjunct Faculty in Chemistry at Columbus State Community College. I have worked with students taking CHEM 0100 up to CHEM 1210 (1172).

Elementary (K-6th)

With a background in biochemistry and molecular biology, and over 3 years of experience in teaching at collegiate, high school and elementary school level, I can help students in reading, writing, handwriting, math, science and languages (English, French and Arabic).

French

I attended a French school from preschool through grade 12. For 15 years, I learned to speak, read and write french while studying all my subjects (math, science, physics..) in French.

Genetics

During my undergraduate studies, I took genetics in several of my classes; biology, zoology, molecular biology and advanced genetics. In graduate school, I tutored genetics to undergraduate and high school students. Genetics is a great subject that is easy to understand when explained the proper way. I can help students break down complex theories to small simple concepts that they can always remember.

Organic Chemistry

With a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, I taught Fundamentals of Medical Biochemistry at The Ohio State University for 3 years. Topics included basic organic chemistry and molecular biology as they relate to the human body.
