SETON HALL UNIVERSITY SOUTH ORANGE, NJ
University of California at Davis (J.D.)
Hello potential students:
My name is Maryam. I studied Political Science at Seton Hall University, in South Orange, NJ and also studied law at the University of California, Davis School of Law. I am interested in tutoring primary and secondary school students in Math or the Social Sciences. I have great interpersonal skills and care very much about my students.
I am particularly skilled and knowledgeable when it comes to essays, grammar, proof-reading, sentence structure, test preparation and college applications. I previously tutored elementary school, middle school and high school students in Math, English, History, Social Studies, essay-writing and test preparation.
I can help you to reach your goals, and I would be happy to do so. Please contact me if you have any questions or wanted to set up a tutoring session.

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.
I played basketball for 7 years (middle school and high school) on recreational traveling, middle school and junior varsity high school teams.
I played guard, point guard and sometimes forward. I still play for fun with family and fiends.
I help my husband with giving pointers to his recreational team in his league as well. I also teach my nieces and nephews how to play and how to enhance their skills with exercises, drills and practicing.
I am an attorney in the state of California. Before graduating law school I took several public speaking courses, Trial Practice, Pretrial Skills, Negotiations, Appellate Advocacy (Moot Court) and did Moot Court activities at night as well.
I was the president of several clubs as an undergraduate student and provided Know Your Rights presentations on several occasions.
Additionally, for my jobs and internships, I have spoken before Superior Court judges and Administrative Law Judges in bench trials, hearings, motions and for internal meetings when presenting cases and discussing legal strategy.
I have spoken in front of panels of attorneys when issue-spotting and brain-storming on case resolution for internal meetings in legal clinics. I also engaged in debates in my undergraduate pre-law and law classes.
I can speak publicly very well, and I can explain tips and tricks to new and amateur public speakers so that they can hone their skills, become comfortable addressing crowds and authority figures. I can also train with exercises and lessons so that they retain those skills for life. I will help them with practice, coaching, feedback and outlining so that they become comfortable public speakers.
I taught freshman study skills at the college level as a college sophomore. This involved teaching a class, working with the instructor to determine grades, meeting with students one on one, figuring out class curriculum and helping students to determine a college, career and extracurricular plan.
I also successfully completed law school and passed the California bar examination so I can instruct students on how to manage time, how to study effectively and efficiently, and how to prioritize.
