I am Mona, a recent graduate of Texas A & M. I currently work as an Epidemiologist. I really love teaching, and I find it really fulfilling to see students suddenly understand things and succeed. It is a great feeling knowing that I was a part of someone's success. .

In the past, I tutored many clients in math subject, and they all received high scores in their classes. I love math, but I also know the struggle that comes with understanding how to solve problems. Thankfully, I had great teachers who gave me tips and tricks I am able to pass on.

I also took several standardized tests in my lifetime. What I have come to find is that finding success in any standardized test does have a formula. I feel like I have the formula down because not only did I get into several competitive graduate programs, I also was able to matriculate into medical school. I have taken the MCAT and GRE. Additionally, I have taken the ACT, PSAT, and SAT and have tutored in all of these subjects, so I am very familiar with how to score well.

Additionally, applying to graduate programs requires skills in writing and reading, which are things that I feel I am very proficient at. At one time, I was able to help edit a thesis for a master's program. So I believe that my English skills are on par.

I love working with all levels of education. I have tutored and worked with people from all walks of life and all ages. However, I would prefer working with people who are at an undergraduate education level and below. Elementary, middle, and high school apply.

One of the things I try to do is make sure I am not talking down to my clients. I have had tutoring experiences where I felt judged and pressured, and I feel that learning should be a positive experience where ideas can be exchanged. Condescension rarely helps anyone, so I try my best to keep the tone of my sessions open, engaging, and fun.

Really Patient and knowledgeable

I was very skeptical about online tutoring! After one lesson with Mona, changed my thoughts. She was very patient with me; especially when I didn't understand something.
