About Melissa

I am currently pursuing my own independent studies in medical ethics as I seek to attend medical school in the near future. I have previously completed my Master’s degree in Religion and Islamic studies at Claremont Graduate University and before that I attained my Bachelor’s degree at Zaytuna College in Liberal Arts with a focus in a wide range of subjects including English, Arabic, Literature, Mathematics, Astronomy, Law, Eastern and Western philosophies, and World religions.

Throughout my Undergrad, I taught and tutored people from all walks of life of various levels of mastery over a given subject matter. I served as a TA for a summer intensive language program in Berkeley, I've taught several classes in religious studies in Santa Barbara, I've conducted private lessons in Women's studies, Arabic, Spanish, and Religious studies.

I am fluent in 5 languages (English, Spanish, French, Berber, and Arabic). Of these, English, Arabic, and Spanish are languages I have studied in depth. I have been studying Arabic for 11 years, and teaching it for the past 5 years. I have studied Spanish for 6 years and have even received a Baccalaureate Certificate for the most outstanding Spanish student. I have both textual and oral proficiency in English, Spanish, French, and Arabic and oral proficiency in Berber.

When my family and I moved to the states, I was placed in an ESL class, knowing only the English alphabet. Due to my ability to learn the language quickly, after two semesters, I was awarded most outstanding ESL student, and was advanced to a regular English class. Having been through the process, I understand the developmental stages that the non-English speaking student experiences. I have also been an English tutor for non-English speaking students for several years.

I have completed an Undergrad degree and Master's degree in religious studies, during which I've taught and tutored students of various ages (ranging from elementary to graduate students).

I have been engaged in the art of learning throughout my life, and have been teaching/tutoring/mentoring for several years. I believe that if one desires and is determined to learn something, then they will. And I am honored to be a means for my students' success as they journey through a lifetime of learning and growing.

If you are interested in having me as your tutor or have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time.

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 have completed and passed level three of summer Arabic intensive course at Zaytuna college in Berkeley. I also have a bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts with a minor in Arabic. In graduate school, I was a research assistant for my Islamic Studies professor and I worked closely with classical Arabic sources and translated and interpreted various chapters. I also served as an teacher's assistant at Zaytuna College's Summer Arabic Intensive program in 2015 and have been a private Arabic tutor for more than 5 years now.

Religion

I have a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts which focused on Islamic Studies and World religions and philosophies. In graduate school, my department was religion and my focus was Islamic studies and World religions as well theories of religion and methods of comparing religions.
For my senior thesis, I compared religious scriptures and their outlook on the nature the male and female and the role of men and women.

Spanish

I graduated with a certificate in Spanish and I speak it fluently as well.
