My name is Mina S. I graduated from a regionally accredited college with a GPA of 3.45, majored in Education, and minored in Language Instruction. I have always been passionate about teaching but never realized how enjoyable it is until I graduated and began teaching English in my hometown. After immigrating to the States, I became a certified substitute teacher for many years. That is when I came in contact with Elementary Math, and I loved it, so I decided to take another path and started studying Elementary Math, Elementary Science, and Coding. To be able to help my students with these subjects during the school day setting or even after it. Since then, I have been tutoring for over ten years now.

Also, as a Chess Expert, I was able to join several afterschool programs to coach and tutor Chess, Logic, and strategic planning. With my Strategic Planning, my understanding of the aspects of the game, and my exceptional chess coaching skills, I can understand the weaknesses and strengths of my students. Also, I know how to help them focus on their game needs and areas that need improvements.
My content knowledge in Elementary Math, my experience in tutoring it, and my ability to break down complicated concepts to simple examples are my secret recipe ingredients to make Math like a happy meal to my students.
My understanding of my student sensitivities and differences and my knowledge to brings science lessons to life with real world-application are what enable me to teach science in the best way possible.
In Addition to that, Arabic is my mother tongue, and I have studied it for more than 15 years. Therefore, I can teach different dialects of the language (Egyptian, Lebanese, Syrian, Libyan, Tunisian, Iraqi, and most of the Gulf dialects) with much ease and pleasure.

Not to forget to mention that since ESL is my Bachelor's major, I have studied and still studying a lot of it's teaching methodology. A combination of that academic knowledge and skills created by years of experience, I can help my stud

Arabic

Being a mandatory school subject back in Egypt, I have studied the language for more than 15 years, I have had great scores in it, and as a part of becoming an ESL teacher I had to study more Arabic in order to be able to do Translation. In fact, I worked as a translator in a medical center for a couple of years because of my knowledge of the language.

Patient Tutor great with kids

My child struggles with math . Mina really takes his time with the lesson. Great for any parents who have children undergoing testing or who just needs extra help with remote learning.

Dennisha, 1 lesson with Mina

Arabic lesson

My kids had their first lesson with Mina and it was terrific. He was very patient and knowledgeable. He used examples that made the lesson relatable and enjoyable to them. The lesson was very interactive and geared towards today’s generation of e-learners. Our objective for these lessons is to help our kids gain confidence in speaking the Arabic language to which Mina promised he would focus on moving forward. My kids singed off of their first lesson excited about what’s to come. We look forward to learning Arabic with Mina.
