About Sumayyah

Hi there! I am currently a third year college student. I am majoring in biology and minoring in German. However, if you ask me, my true passion is in the written word and my native tongue, English. In order to compensate for the English lacking in my curriculum, I have been a tutor at my college for the past year in the writing department. It has been a joy to help my fellow students with their grammar and writing, and I hope that I can help you too! A side effect of my love for English is my my love for languages in general. I have dabbled in Spanish, French and Arabic, but found my calling in German during my freshman seminar class. German is now my second linguistic love and I am currently in pursuit of German fluency. You may be wondering now: why is she majoring in biology? It is because I also love science and although I despise math, I am determined to pursue a career in medicine.

Now that you know a little bit about me, I would like to tell you a bit about my tutoring style. I like a calm, well-paced approach. I do not want to rush you to move forward before you understand everything because English is an amazing language and should be treated as such. Furthermore, I have found that the best way to learn something and retain it is to do a tell-back scenario. Therefore, once we have gone over the areas you wish to work on, I like to hear a summary from you so that I know you have grasped the topic and will have no problem solving the problem in future when I am not present. Lastly, there is nothing better, in my opinion, than equipping people with the tools they need for success and this is exactly what I hope you give me the opportunity to help you with!

I have taken two years of German at the college level and am pursuing fluency. I am proficient in German grammar and have a few tricks up my sleeve for remembering the tricky areas of the very logical German language.

I have been a writing and English tutor at my college for the past year and have received consistent feedback of satisfaction with my tutoring and the results it incurs. I am proficient in English grammar and an avid reader of an assortment of literature. In addition, I possess an extensive vocabulary and enjoy sharing my passion for interesting words with others.

My top priority is helping you not only get the grades you want, but more importantly helping you understand topics and retain them. The best part of tutoring is seeing fellow students improve in areas that challenge them. Please contact me if you think you can benefit from my help and to schedule lessons with me. It would be my pleasure to help you facilitate your passion for learning and improve your expertise for those amazing grades!

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.

Elementary Math

I have had rigorous training with elementary math in preparation for higher math education in college. I am proficient in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. I have also helped younger kids with their math in prior years in a casual setting.

Spelling

I am a proficient speller due to my ever-growing vocabulary deep roots in phonetics. Spelling is like second nature to me. In addition, I have devised many way to help myself learn vocabulary and be able to spell it correctly by sounding it out.

Writing

I have previously written in a variety of styles and used a variety of formats for essays, papers and research papers. I also have experience with scientific writing. Overall, I have the more experience with writing than with any other area of study. I am a writing consultant and tutor at my college and have been through several workshops for the position. I was also highly recommended by my college writing professor.
