About Sharifa

I, Sharifa O., have been tutoring and sub-teaching at public schools for about a year and a half. I worked at an after school in Brooklyn, in which I was to help assist students with homework, and lessons they did not comprehend. During that year and the following year, I was employed by the department of education as a substitute teacher. As a substitute teacher I obtained many teaching skills, and assisted a class of 15+ student in various subjects. Also I am currently enrolled in the graduate program of education, which enables me to understand the background of education and the schools' curriculum and standards.

Tutoring has been a joy for me always. Each student as an individual is a pleasure to meet. Tutoring students has its many benefits for a student and the tutor. As a student learns from their tutor, so does a tutor from their student. It brings joy to encourage and motivate students to do their best while learning but also having a good time. It is also pleasurable to hear how well the students do after the lesson has been taught.
It will be my pleasure to tutor any student who is willing to expand their knowledge and learn. Studying and learning does not always have to be boring, but it can be fun with just a little creativity.
