I am a great educator and enjoy teaching all ages. I teach test preparation, ACT, STAAR, Algebra, Math, Writing, English, Reading, Spanish, and Arabic. I hold Masters and Bachelors degrees from the University of California at Irvine and am a certified teacher with the California Community College Teaching Credential. I won awards teaching statistics to college students at the University of California at Irvine. I have also been very successful tutoring K-8th graders in Texas; my students' grades and test scores improve after only a few sessions of tutoring. With continued consistent tutoring, my students earn Advanced scores on the state standardized STARR tests.

I love tutoring. I am very personable, enthusiastic, and hard-working. I am very good at communicating and simplifying complex subjects into concise, understandable parts. My writing, editing, and research skills are top-notch; I have done first-hand research and published an article in a scholarly journal. I have experience as an American with different cultures including Muslim, Desi, and Arabic cultures. If desired, I facilitate and negotiate successful teamwork between the student, parents, and school. I communicate with teachers via email or phone and attend school meetings as requested.

I have many years of experience teaching children from Kindergarten to 6th grade and beyond. My students consistently score higher on exams and standardized tests after completing my tutoring sessions. My approach is to interact successfully with the student at the level they are at. I quickly assess what the student needs. Then I respond with the appropriate teaching technique in order to reach the student and create success in learning. I am passionate about education and love teaching. Students and parents like me because I am excellent at teaching kids and getting them to love and value education and learning.
