About Maryam

Before learning about WyZant, I taught my neighbor's children to speak, read, and write English. They were from Honduras and had just recently moved in at the time. After two weeks of teaching them, I felt the rewards of helping them acquire knowledge in this language. That's what I enjoy when teaching my students something new. I love that they get to learn a topic or two because of me. I want to pass on my knowledge to others. So I decided I wanted to help more people by teaching them the English language.

I have two and a half year's experience teaching English as a Second Language to mostly beginners and intermediate leveled students as well as advanced students. I attended BRIDGE TEFL online and received a certificate in the English grammar as well as for passing the class. I volunteered my time to Refugee Focus and Area Agency on Aging in Phoenix.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am TEFL certified to teach English as a second language. I am thorough in what I teach and make sure that the student understands what is taught and actually makes progress. I have four-five years experience of tutoring English as a second language.

Grammar

I took a one-year course in English grammar and passed it, and obtained a certificate for it. The basic and difficult parts of grammar, I can teach it well. My experience in teaching this is four years.

Literature

I have plenty of knowledge about literature and the novels taught in most high schools and colleges. I can grasp the intentions of the author and why the novel or play or poem is significant. I can also analyze them. Have been doing this for about two years officially, and unofficially, at least three years.

Reading

I use many techniques that help children read and adopt the sounds of the alphabets. Once they get used to how alphabets are sounded, they will remember that and easily read words. I have taught reading for two years.

TOEFL

I have been helping students pass their TOEFL exam for more than five years by enhancing their knowledge and skill in grammar, vocabulary, reading, and more. I can also calculate the entire tests on TOEFL to help give an estimate on the desired score or score range. My methods have been proven to be very effective.

Vocabulary

There are ways that I use to help people learn the meaning of words and remember it, therefore, building their vocabulary. And I get to learn as well. I have taught in this area for about three years.

Writing

I have five years experience with writing. That goes for everything related to it such as grammar, punctuation, and more. My students were my siblings, neighbors, and refugees from other parts of the world.
