About Borana

Juris Doctorate: Emory School of Law
BS: Criminal Justice
BA: Sociology
Minors: Italian & Business Administration
GPA: 3.8

I am officially a student of life and not formal education as of May 2016. Having completed my degrees all while managing my own academic consulting company (Life Degree Society), I am continuing the pursuit of myself!

I found myself beginning to tutor because most of my peers enjoyed the way I could take something complex and break it down into a simple expression. It seems I have a knack for making education entertaining, edutainment was a calling.

I've traveled extensively and tutored individuals from 13 countries and counting. Enjoying people and helping them is really what tutoring is all about, a skill is easy to teach if you like the person that's teaching you.

EXPERIENCE: 10 YEARS is how long I've been working with college and grad students (both American and ESL) to create, brainstorm, and work through their various academic hardships.

HONORS: Fulbright Grant Finalist

LANGUAGES:English, Albanian, Italian, Spanish, basic Mandarin Chinese

HOBBIES: I love people and strongly value human relations. My free time includes partaking in cultural events writing my book on the pursuit of a degree in yourself, cooking, mind/body/soul exercises, and gratitude for all I have.

I have taken advanced university courses in almost all of the subjects I tutor. Please feel free to ask for your particular area of need.

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.

Business

I have a minor in Business Administration and have been running my own LLC for 4 years. I have a Law Degree with a background in transactional business work as of May 2016 from Emory School of Law.

Career Development

I have been successfully running a Delaware corporation that focuses on career and educational holistic development as of summer of 2013. I have helped dozens of students pursue a career, rather than a job, that they enjoy and will help them grow in the ways they desire.

Criminal Justice

At the university level I completed a degree in Criminal Justice. I graduated at the top of my graduating class in my major in 2012 from Drexel University. With that came the Honorable Judge Hall award for distinction.

English

I have a law degree and great knowledge of the use of English in personal and professional life. My education is from Emory School of Law and I also write articles for online sites as well as do some speaking engagements on the side.

ESL/ESOL

I am a fluent English speaker and understand the difficulty of learning another language; I speak Albanian, Italian, Spanish, and some Mandarin Chinese and each one is a new world. I am sure you will get the hang of it all. Practice makes PERFECT!

Italian

I have a minor from undergrad in Italian Cinema and am prone to making language lessons as much about culture and edutainment as I am about grasping the language. You really can't have one without the other!

Study Skills

At the university level I completed dual degrees and dual minors from Drexel University in 4.5 years. I attribute these accomplishments to my study habits as well as my organizational skills. These need to be fine-tuned on a case by case basis per student. Figuring out your strengths and playing on them will working on your weaknesses will help you to manage time and prioritize more efficiently.

World History

I passed the AP test with flying colors and also have a multilingual, well-traveled, and cultured background which helps with making World History very interesting instead of dry. I enjoy filling lessons with a plethora of storytelling to make sure the story "sticks."
