About Riham

I have a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry which I earned from St. Louis University in Missouri in 1996. I have been helping WyzAnt students since 2013. Tutoring is my full-time job and my passion. I have experience with Supplemental Instruction at Daytona State College. I also have my Certificate of Status of Eligibility to teach High School Chemistry. I have helped students improve their grades in various Math disciplines ranging from Algebra to Geometry and Statistics. I have also worked with many students of the sciences mainly Chemistry but also Biology and Anatomy and Physiology. In standardized test prep, I specialize in helping students pass and excel in SAT, ACT, GED and many others such as GRE, GMAT and TEAS.

I work with all ages from middle school and high school to college and adult learners. What I love about tutoring is that I get a wide range of students with different skills and different interests. Some are at the top of their class looking to perfect their scores and some have what it takes but need personalized, one-on-one help not only with the material but also with organization and study skills. I never met a student who didn't succeed if they had the will and dedication. I have several students that come back to me semester after semester to help them with various subjects. I stand in awe as I watch as the struggles of yesterday become second nature to them today. I have built many long-term relationships with students and their families and would love to do the same with you.

My teaching motto is patience, patience, patience and more patience. If a student doesn't understand a concept, I try to explain it in a different way or I back up and find out where there is a gap in their knowledge. Every one of us is unique in the way they learn and I am sensitive to that. I also know how an amazing teacher can change lives. Nothing gives me more satisfaction as when someone tells me, "I could not have done it without your help." I am always glad to know how I made a positive difference in somebody's life.

You are looking for a tutor for a reason. Take control of your studies sooner than later. Message me now and I hope to meet you and have the opportunity to work with you or your child soon.

All the best,
Riham

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Having personally scored highly on standardized tests and with experience teaching the material that is tested, I have helped many students with the ACT English section with great results.

ACT Math

ACT Reading

Over the years, I have received countless requests for this tough part of the ACT. Mainly it is tough because of its time limit.

Amazing! — Riham was an amazing tutor. Very flexible, patient, and quick to respond to communication. I was in a bit of an emergency case and Riham met with me for multiple hours a day, 7 days a week. She was very knowledgeable and made concepts easy to understand. If I ever need another tutor in the Port Orange area, I will definitely choose her again. ...
