About Mahrukh

Hello, my name is Mahrukh (nickname: MAHA). I am an ESOL/ESL instructor at Lone Star College. I have degrees in B.A. (Major: International Studies) and MLA (Core focus: International Studies) degrees with high academic achievements from University of St. Thomas, Houston, Texas. I also have a TESOL Teaching Certification (Grade "A" -Pass with Distinction), accredited and validated by ACTDEC as a Level 4 course. Furthermore, I have a TEFL Certification (Grade "A" with Exemplary) which is also accredited and validated by TESOL organization.

I am multilingual: Urdu: Fluent; Hindi: Spoken; Arabic: Basic; Spanish: Basic. I am affiliated with: National Language Service Corps; Sigma Iota Rho and Alpha Sigma Lambda. I have been recognized and awarded as a Distinguished Delegate, International Model United Nations, New York; and have been awarded an Outstanding Leadership and Community Outreach, Local Student Association of Texas. My study abroad/research studies include: Jamaica, Chile, Mexico and Taiwan.

It has been always a passion of mine to assist others in the learning process. As a tutor, I have complete confidence in my abilities to enable students in fulfilling their learning goals, and providing them a climate of open communication, motivation and mutual respect.

My proficiency includes: elementary, intermediate and high levels in ESL/EFL and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages),TOEFL reading, writing, speaking, listening, editing, proofreading, phonetics, grammar, vocabulary,spelling, pronunciation etc. I am also fully computer/internet savvy, which includes: Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel.

I would like my students to be comfortable in a study area where it's quiet with sufficient space for tutoring. Location and time can be discussed before tutoring commences. I will often ask for feedback at the end of tutoring in order to keep myself to a high standard. I am flexible with time. If a class is missed with a legitimate excuse and advance notice, then I will offer a makeup class.

WyzAnt has given me the opportunity to help students in realizing their own potential as well as experiencing positive results with exponential improvement. I will keep my students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I will periodically assign and assess homework/assignments.

I am looking forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve your learning goals.

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.

Phonics

I have recently completed a 150-Hour TESOL Certification Course with LinguaEdge. I have a TESOL certificate, approved and accredited by ACTDEC on March 28, 2014. In this course, I have learned the importance of playing the part as a "speech coach," leveraging a certain knowledge of phonetics and phonology, and employing an appropriate methodology responsive to the needs of specific learners. Furthermore, in my phonetic training, I have learned the use of articulatory descriptions and diagrams as well as phonetic alphabet; which involved doing phonetic transcription and reading phonetically transcribed text.
