About Fatima

Languages have always been fascinating subjects for me and my fascination led me to choose two languages as my college majors - English Literature and Arabic grammar. I also studied French for six years at Middle and High School and also attended Ndebele classes (an African language) after completing college. My love and passion for languages compels me to engage my students to the best of my ability so that they too may discover the beauty of language, the power of language and how central language is to human existence.

I am also an avid reader and regularly attend and/or help organize literacy related activities such as school book fairs, library events, spelling and vocabulary bees, interfaith storytelling events, book discussions (Together Book Talk; Stories Around the World; Three Cups of Tea), school drama productions (Anansi the Spider; Macbeth), the National History Day Competition, Schenectady Theatre for Children productions as well as Dramacademic productions.

After completing my Bachelor's degree in Languages I completed a one year Higher Diploma in Education. Although I am just starting out as a tutor I can assure any potential students that by drawing on my years of experience in the field of education I am in a position to provide high quality tutoring and will constantly adjust my methods and materials to suit the needs of the students. I believe strongly in making my lessons meaningful to the lives of the students thereby motivating them to learn and excel.
