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.

Adobe InDesign

I used Indesign for eight years to publish my own work. I used it extensively in professional environment to prepare concept presentation booklets for design project to be submitted to clients. I used it in Columbia University to submit my portfolio and archive my work.

Arabic

I am native Arabic speaker, with excellent knowledge of the Arabic grammar. while was abroad I have taught some colleagues basic Arabic so they can manage daily communication. I have a baccalaureate degree in Arabic which allows me to teach elementary to advanced speaking and writing. For beginners I simplify the basics in a logical structure so that they can learn and memorize the letters and get along with basic speech in a short period of time.

Architecture

I hold a Master's Degree fom Columbia University in Advanced Architectire Design. I have practiced for 7 years working on various residential and commercial projects. I hold a bachelor degree in Architecture from the American University of Beirut. Currently, I am a teaching assistant at CUNY for 2 classes the Advanced Materials and Building Tech 4 (Revit).

AutoCAD

I have more than 10 years experience in using Autocad. I used Autocad for seven years in architecture firms. Some of my younger colleagues who joined at the office used different CAD software and I was in charge of them making the transition to Autocad, since CAD was the our main drawing production tool. I was successful in insuring this transition in a period of one month.

Revit

I have 5 years of experience using Revit in both academic and professional environments. During my Master's program, I took a course in advanced modeling techniques; my work in that course was published in the annual Architecture publication of Columbia University. I have used Revit for both concept design and design documentation. For beginners, I can help them understand the basic concepts of the software and basic modeling, which will get them running with the software, and for those with experience, we can immediately start working on advanced modeling.
