About Badr

Dear students and parents,

My name is Badr and tutoring is a passion of mine. I first started tutoring while still a high school student.

In 2007, while going to college, I helped tutor five neighbor children aged 6 to 13 in Jersey City, NJ. I helped them with various subjects from Math to English. Although I was not getting paid for most of the sessions, my goal was for the children to first become comfortable then eventually excel at the subjects they were struggling the most with. My methods ranged from going over their homework with them to creating additional customized practice sessions similar to their homework assignments, but which targeted their weaknesses specifically.

Over the summer of 2009 I prepared plans for light weekly lessons to help two children prepare for their high school English and Math. My goal was to give them the chance to excel at those subjects once school started. They both scored in the upper 90% in both subjects.

Between 2009 and 2011 I helped various High School and college students with their French. I created worksheets and quizzes, as well as optional conversation sessions aimed at immersing the students. My own French in Native level and I was able to see great changes in the students' levels of confidence with this language. I am still in touch with some of my students and I was pleased to receive feedback from one particular student who visited France and reaped the benefits of my immersion sessions.

Beyond my experience in the USA, I have worked for a year to teach the French language to orphan boys in the Settat Orphanage in Settat, Morocco. I did that as a member of non-Profit organization Rotary, which Employs branches worldwide. The branch in Morocco was named Rotaract, and was aimed at helping those orphaned children learn an international language and perhaps have a chance at having an academic future.

I am genuinely passionate about helping students excel academically. I always start by strengthening the "base" then see the students build on that in order to accomplish their goals.
