I'm Maisha! I graduated from the Bronx High School of Science and now currently attend Binghamton University! I've been a student for as long as I could remember. Some of my earliest memories involve my father sitting me down and teaching me basic fundamental math and english, as I had immigrated here from Bangladesh a year before preschool. Alongside school for the next eight years, my parents would enroll me in tutorial centers to keep me ahead in my classes. I've had tutors who only cared for a paycheck and I've had tutors who truly cared to see me pass my next test. I realized that such a difference goes a long way.
Fast forward to my senior year of high school, I worked at Khan's Tutorial as a common core instructor and later got promoted to prep students for the SHSAT. Throughout this year, I realized how difficult yet rewarding it is to be a teacher. I realized one teaching style definitely does not fit all students so I learned how to be flexible in how I approach each student, adjusting my methods to their strengths and weaknesses. I realized how important it is to use a hands-on approach to learning and having the students interact through open discussion, as that's how I usually start my lessons. My favorite part about teaching is waiting for that "aha!" moment on a student's face when they finally understand something. Patience truly is something that both a tutor and student need in order for learning to go as smoothly as possible because despite how aggravating the process may be, the end result is worth it.

I worked at Khan's Tutorial as an instructor and taught elementary and middle school students in common core subjects such as english, math and writing in a group setting of three to ten. I created individualized report cards for each student based on their strengths and weaknesses as well as areas where they could improve. Every few weeks, individual parent teacher conferences were held where I would communicate the child's ongoing performance, forming goals and encouraging study habits for the student for further improvement. Later on, I got promoted to prep students for the specialized high school entrance exam where I would work with students in groups developed based on general performance. Every now and then, I also helped high school students with school work, regents exam and SAT prep.

I love tutoring students because I want them to motivate them to succeed the same way I was as a child by my teachers. You are always welcome to contact me whether it be to discuss progress or suggest improvements in what i can do for the student. I'm very easy to talk to and I'm always going to try to respond as soon as possible! Please don't hesitate to contact!
