About Yahya Marvin


Bio

I am so happy you're considering tutoring with me! My students have ranged from preschoolers to PhDs, and I have been so proud to see so many of them go on to amazing success. I have helped elementary students struggling with learning disabilities and seen doctors through to advanced studies and admission to leading universities. My admissions coaching students have even been granted interviews and admissions with the University of Cambridge and King's College in England!

I am so happy you're considering tutoring with me! My students have ranged from preschoolers to PhDs, and I have been so proud to see so many of them go on to amazing success. I have helped elementary students struggling with learning disabilities and seen doctors through to advanced studies and admission to leading universities. My admissions coaching students have even been granted interviews and admissions with the University of Cambridge and King's College in England!

I have been dedicated to teaching since my final year at the University of Texas, where I was the first student to graduate with honors in my field. In addition to being a homeschooling father of four, I hold formal teaching certifications in all subject areas from Early Childhood through Grade 6 and in English, Reading, History, and Biology from grades 8 - 12. I also hold a Masters of Education Leadership from the University of Leicester, U.K. and have served as senior leader at several schools and private educational organizations. I have helped ESL Students achieve success on university examinations and struggling students to improve their SAT and ACT scores. I have also coached parents and tutored students towards success in homeschooling with an aim to helping parents and students achieve a higher level of independence in that challenging endeavor. With 4 years of online tutoring experience, I now tutor exclusively in that medium, having seen my most successful students achieve their goals through our online contact.

Whatever your aspirations, my passion is your success, and it always touches me when a former student reaches out to attribute the origins of their success to our work together. I hope that you too will find the achievement of your highest educational goals in working with me, whether that be getting through a rough patch in beginning literacy or securing admission to an Oxbridge or Ivy League university. Below are some quotes from my previous clients.

Elementary Education

Common Core,

Common Core

As a school leader, teacher, and educational consultant I understand and embrace the Common Core curriculum. Having studied the IB curriculum as a high school student and as an educator, and having spent the bulk of my career abroad, I believe that the Common Core takes American students closer to parity with their international counterparts. Currently, clients of my homeschool consultancy have individualized curricula planned according the Common Cores standards, which allow for flexibility in meeting concept-based learning objectives.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked in elementary and early childhood education since 2002 and have tutored extensively online since 2013. I hold a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas at Austin, teaching certification from the Texas State Board of Educator Certification, and Master of Science in Education Leadership from the University of Leicester, U.K. I have been trained as a school leader by the International Baccalaureate Organization and am experienced in delivery of the PYP curriculum. I also have extensive experience with the Texas and Common Core curricula. I also hold certifications in Life Sciences, History, English, and Reading for grades 8 - 12. I have formally taught grades 4 - 12 at public and private schools and have tutored students from preschool to PhDs in a wide variety of subjects. I homeschool my four children, who range from 3 - 11 years of age and have contracted with a number of families for the full provision of their homeschool curriculum, coaching, assessment, and program validation.

Homeschool

I have worked with homeschooling families as a tutor and consultant since 2015 and have homeschooled my own children for nearly 3 years. I hold a Master of Arts in Education Leadership and am certified by the State of Texas in all subject areas from Early Childhood through Grade 6 and in Reading, English, History, and Life Sciences (biology, ecology, etc.) for grades 8 - 12. I am also trained in leadership of the International Baccalaureate curriculum and have experience teaching their Primary Years Program. With a special interest in curriculum development and assessment, I have provided individualized homeschool curricula for elementary, middle, and high school students based on comprehensive initial assessments and monitored student work, while coaching parents in delivery, over the course of the academic year. One such parent remarked, "Yahya is a blessing in our sons' education." Another stated that her sons' experience constituted "the perfect learning experience." As a homeschooling parent, I am more than familiar with the challenges that the endeavor presents to students and parents. As a career educator with 16 years of experience, I feel understand the pitfalls of traditional educational modes as well as the tools that can help ordinary homeschooling parents make their children's learning experience enriching and life-changing.

Conducting the bulk of my educational career in the Middle East, I have had ample opportunity to work with students towards improving their IELTS scores. In addition to holding formal English teaching certification from the State of Texas, I have been an English teacher for the vast majority of my career. I have taught ESL students as young as 5 and as old as 50, from preschool to PhDs, privately and for renowned institutions such as Bell English. I have seen students make marked improvements in their scores sufficient for entry to the best universities and competitive professions.

I began study of Arabic in 1999 at the University of Texas where I graduated with majors in History, Middle Eastern Studies, and Islamic Studies, being the first student at the university to receive special honors in the latter. I continued my studies in Arabic at the Qasid institute of Amman, Jordan; al-Fajr Inistitute in Cairo, Egypt; and in private sessions with scholars of high repute in Qatar and Saudi Arabia. I have conducted bilingual postgraduate research in education leadership, served as a staff translator at a remote school in the United Arab Emirates, and have tutored children in Arabic literacy since 2003.

I have been coaching students in the university admissions process since 2015. Having myself been accepted to every university to which I have applied and having been granted significant scholarship monies, I have been most pleased to help students in completing applications, selecting universities suited to their talents and aspirations, composing admissions essays, and preparing for interviews at top-tier institutions. My students have secured interviews and admissions with prestigious institutions the world over; including Northeastern University, the University of Cambridge, King's College London, and the University of Exeter. Students have ranged from high school senior's to doctors applying for fields as diverse as law, neuroscience, and international development. As one student, an M.D., put it, "Acceptance letters rained down after Yahya's involvement."
