About Rahman

I tutor both children and adults in a number of subjects. My approach to tutoring is to first identify what the student needs, and then quickly implement a tutoring strategy that will work best for the student. People effectively learn through different methods since learning is not a “one method fits all people” phenomenon. Hence, I’m flexible and I enjoy tutoring because it provides an opportunity to work one on one with the student, as opposed to just giving a lecture to a classroom of students.

Basic Academics and Computer Skills Lessons

I can provide you with excellent tutoring for either children or adults in the subjects of writing, reading, study skills, basic computer skills (Word, PowerPoint, and Excel), and all subjects of elementary education. I’ve successfully tutored various age groups including my own children in these subjects, and I guarantee your satisfaction with my tutoring. I have a proven academic background that includes four college degrees. Let me help you to be successful in your courses.

Tutoring in Business Subjects

As an MBA graduate and business professional, I can be of assistance to you in the business subjects, particularly in the studies of management, marketing, and human resources.

Instruction in the Martial Arts

If you're interested in learning the martial art known as Kung Fu, I would be happy to teach you either through some private lessons, or you can join my small class of students that I teach weekly. I've been a certified Sifu (Teacher) in Kung Fu for 25 years.

Tutoring in Theatre and Public Speaking

If you desire to learn or be tutored in acting, I'm qualified to help you as a former theater instructor who holds an Associate's degree in Theatre. I’m also an experienced actor that has acted in professional, college, and community theatrical productions. I've also performed as an amateur singer and stand-up comedian.

If you would like help with your public speaking I can also help you. I’m an experienced public speaker as a working public relations professional and part-time CEO of a nonprofit organization.

I have a genuine love for helping people to learn and excel. I'm down to earth, and easy to work with. I'll go the extra mile to help you to be successful in whatever subject you're pursuing. Whether you're a visual, audio, or hands on learner, I look forward to working with you!

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

As an experienced and educated business professional I am qualified to tutor business subjects. I possess a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Strategic Management. I am currently a Chief Executive Officer for nonprofit organization and a Public Relations Coordinator for a government agency. In addition to these years of experience, I've also held positions as a Treasurer and an Accounting Clerk. I also have previous teaching experience where I was a teacher for 3 years for a local charter school in a different subject, however teaching principles can be applicable across various subjects.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor subjects for elementary (K-6) because I have experience working with this age group as a former teacher for a public charter school for three years. I have also tutored students in this age group in reading, spelling, and phonics. I am proficient and well rounded in the elementary subjects. In addition to my specialized higher education degrees, I also spent the first two years of my college education learning the core academics, and I earned an Associate Degree in General Education.

Public Speaking

I am a seasoned public speaker and I engage in public speaking on a regular basis in my occupations as a Public Relations Coordinator for a government agency, and as a CEO of a community service nonprofit organization. I have also had public speaking courses and practical application throughout my many years in college for the four degrees that I've earned which are: a Master of Business Administration - Strategic Management; a Bachelor of Arts - Community Services; a Associate of Applied Arts - Theatre; and an Associate Degree - General Education.

Reading

I have tutored a number of students in reading and I've helped them to dramatically increase their reading skills. I enjoy working with young people and I also have previous teaching experience working with elementary and middle school level students. I'm also a college graduate in multiple subjects.

Study Skills

My qualifications to teach the subject of study skills includes both tutoring experience in this subject and my own personal experience of applying study skills throughout my academic history. I have helped a number of students to learn valuable study skills that have helped them succeed in their courses. My academic accomplishments also attest to my mastery in study skills. I've earned four college degrees that include a Master of Business Administration degree concentrated in Strategic Management, and I also earned a Post Graduate Certificate in Human Resources Management. The rigorous curriculum that I completed to earn my advanced degrees demonstrates that I possess practical knowledge of effective methods of study skills. If you need assistance with your study skills, I can assure you that I can help you develop the skills that you need to succeed in mastering your course work.

Patient and helpful

Rahman is patient and seems genuinely concerned with helping my child to improve in the academic areas they are working together. My child likes working with Rahman and he is able to assist my child in remaining focused during the tutoring session. My child has ADHD and sometimes this is difficult for him.
