My degree and certifications acknowledge me as a qualified and proficient teacher. I acquired the scientific knowledge needed for the teaching process, and possess the analytical methodology for this purpose. I can upgrade your self- confidence and testing skills. From my teaching experience, I strongly agree with the research studies on effective teaching that the teacher makes the difference. Also, critical thinking, analytical skills, research skills, assessment; most of these methods are used to support instructional improvement and to advance student learning. Therefore, a “good” tutor should be well-qualified in mastering the following qualities: to acquire the broad subject knowledge, to have the analytical teaching methodology, and to be clean and firm about discipline, student’s comportment, and different ways of learning technique. In the final analysis, being an effective tutor is determined by how well students learn.

I was raised in Lebanon where my families' native language is Arabic. In school, however, all children also learn English and French. Lebanon's constitution mandates that the government includes diverse ethnic representatives, and where everyone's advanced education is conducted in three languages. My Master degree included scholarship in Arabic, French, and English. My teaching credential certifies me as proficient to teach in these three languages. Within the last two years, I have held a program administrator & teacher position for the Arabic language here in the United States.

Sewing

Sewing

I have been sewing for 4 years making my own dresses. I own my own sewing machine that I can help the candidates to learn how to sew. Sewing sessions will cover a range of topics such as the development of skills in couture, dressmaking, pattern cutting, tailoring. You will be given advice on cutting and selecting fabrics. My tutoring sessions includes beginner to advanced students depending on the subject matter. Students will learn mainly machine and a few hand sewing skills, through sample work, such as seam finishes, hems and buttonholes, inserting zips, and move on to complete a small project like a cushion. Also, you will learn how to use the sewing machine controls, threading techniques, embroidery stitches etc. The sessions will focus on designing and making small sewn items. You will feel confident to work independently!

ISEE,

ISEE

I am an experienced tutor, with a strong educational background including biological science; math focusing on basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis; verbal reasoning and reading comprehension. I am dedicated to one thing – higher scores. Independent School Entrance Exam, ISEE, is the gateway to private school as well as magnet school. I can provide customized tutoring sessions that meet your child’s needs and assist them to build confidence through their study skills. With three different test levels, I will incorporate time management and academic skill development into their test-prep sessions so your child master the skills needed to succeed in a challenging private school setting and more. ISEE, as a standardized test, is a tool used to determine if the student acquires the ability to do the work at his school and to pinpoint his knowledge in the core subjects. I have been tutoring students in preparing for their standardized tests. Eventually, I have been coaching them to achieve their goals within tailored - structured sessions with understanding and proper support for those having learning differences and special needs. The best part of tutoring is seeing students' smiles on their faces when they understand the basics of algebraic expressions and realize how to solve any word problem. Learning process becomes fun and exciting as I will explicit the process and the relationships among words and concepts, analyze relationships among component parts of sentences, and synthesize information obtained from written context in an effective and interactive approach. Holding a biological science credential, experiencing and tutoring, afford me the expertise to assist our students and enhance their skills. What I can promise is that I will be committed, accessible.
