About Naja

I have younger siblings, nieces, nephews etc., so naturally, teaching them new skills is a necessity. I take a lot of pride in helping them learn new skills to become more successful for their future lives. Somewhat more professionally, I tutored a classmate this past semester in various software programs (Revit, Lumion, Sketchup, and AutoCAD, etc.). This semester, I am tutoring clients in AutoCAD and Spanish. I look forward to the opportunity to help learners more broadly. I am also tutoring someone in learning English (someone for whom English is not their native language).

My tutoring style is to help guide my students towards the answers that they are seeking. I also aim to help them find memorable ways to retain the material that they are seeking to learn. Once the material feel accessible to you, it can become a lot easier to learn the material and increase your skills. I work hard to explain the concepts I'm seeking to cover and I allow plenty of opportunity for students to reach out to me when they seek additional knowledge or explanation.

I am comfortable working with all age groups and recognize that varying strategies are needed when working with someone who is at an elementary school level versus someone who is attending night school or going to college for the first time as well. I work to cultivate a skill set that is accessible to all age groups.

I studied Spanish in school (high school and college) for seven years. I studied Arabic for one year at the collegiate level. I know that it can be very challenging to learn a new language and I'm happy to help you learn the ropes and better enhance your grasp on the language and its culture. I've worked at multiple jobs translating Spanish for people who were not very strong with English. I have intermediate speaking, reading, and writing ability in Arabic. I am fluent in Spanish so, I'm able to read, write, and speak it.

I have a Bachelor's of Arts in English and am the daughter of a librarian, so language, reading, and those related skills come naturally to me. I've studied European, African, and American literature alike. Literature and writing are great forms of self-expression from iambic pentameter to slant rhyme, there are many ways to write. I am adept at working with words and have the tools necessary to help others better explain themselves.

Outside of tutoring and helping people learn, I greatly enjoy listening to music, an avid reader, I'm a gamer, I love learning more about myself as well! I'm very interested in technology and healthy living. I'm easygoing, patient, friendly, and very approachable. I enjoy helping people - I relish the moment when you see the "light bulb" in someone's eyes when they finally understand a concept that had previously baffled them. I work part time in the flooring industry, so I am increasing my construction industry knowledge as well to lead to a stronger career in the Interior Design field.

My passion is to help people better facilitate the world that surrounds them. I look forward to helping you reach your "aha" moment!

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.

Arabic

I studied Arabic at the collegiate level for one year and have the information available on my college transcript. I also listened to a study at home program to help me learn more about the grammar and mechanics about the subject. Additionally, I worked with my classmates and attended regular speaking session so that we could strengthen our understanding of the concepts of the language. I learned FuSha or Modern Standard Arabic and am most comfortable with that dialect.
