Hello! My name is John, or Yahya, and I have been tutoring and teaching since 2013. I graduated from St. John's College in Annapolis, MD with a B.A., Double Major: Philosophy and the History of Math and Science; Double Minor: Comparative Literature and the Classics. After St. John's, I completed Zaytuna College's B.A. in Islamic Law and Theology. Afterwards, my wife and I moved to Egypt for three years to further our Arabic studies. Currently, I am in a master's program in Islamic texts.

My tutoring specialties are the Liberal Arts, English Grammar, English Literature, the Classics, Rhetoric, History, Logic, Philosophy, Arab, and Islamic Studies. I have my own curriculum developed for each subject, which though it resembles most curriculums found in colleges, is suited for much younger ages. I have and have had students between the ages of 6-30, and can teach each subject to various levels of skill and proficiency.

I use a variety of techniques when tutoring, including the Socratic method, mimesis, didactic poetry, memorization, lecture, exercises, and Q & A. I make sure my students know what they are being taught, and provide them with ample opportunity to develop the skills of learning. For most of the subjects I teach, I have study guides, review questions, charts, graphs, and exercises.

I have been studying Classical Arabic since 2013, tutoring it since 2015. I lived in Egypt and Mauritania for three years. I have studied the classical Arabic sciences of nahu, sarf, and balaga, as well as the traditional Islamic sciences of fiqh, aqeeda, mantiq, and tajweed to an intermediate level.

I used to teach in a one-room school before switching fulltime to tutoring homeschoolers. I find that homeschooling is far superior to public or even private school for many reasons. I employ the techniques I learned at two liberal arts schools in order to give my students skills that they would not acquire otherwise. I have been tutoring homeschoolers for many years. They have ranged from kindergarten age to the high school level. We have developed a complete curriculum for Arabic, English, writing, logic, rhetoric, Islamic studies, history, and philosophy for homeschoolers. Homeschooling is far superior to public schooling, as it gives the child a serious curriculum in which they can excel.
