...in ESL instruction. I tutor all the main subjects up to 8th grade, as well as high school history. I am also bilingual in Arabic and can tutor in the subject for those interested. History has always been my favorite subject, for I'm treated to an engaging story in every class. I believe in a constructivist approach to learning, and will act as a guide for the student to learn, explore and wonder. Lecturing does...

...them. Calculus is one of my favorites in particular, because I enjoy seeing my students realize that, while it is kind of intimidating at first, Calculus is just as easy as the math that came before it. I also enjoy helping students learn to get comfortable with standardized tests like the ACT. I keep both of us in a good mood so that the test doesn't seem as frustrating as it used to be for...

...just listen to a lecture. I have attended informational sessions and all-day campus visits. I have stressed over application deadlines and scrutinized single sentences in my application essays. I have gone through the arduous MBA journey myself. After persevering through the MBA application process first-hand, I understand how the GMAT fits in the bigger picture and hope to share as much as I can with students to help them outside of their GMAT preparation.

Memorizing words or equations might help somebody in the short term, but understanding why that word means what it means, or what an equation is actually depicting is worth the extra effort. Besides test-prep I think I can be a great help in writing and editing, as...

...subject to teach is Math, because I like to work with numbers! I strongly believe in incentives. I believe that setting small treats for each goal you reach will motivate you to do better, as long as you set your mind to it. I have a passion to teach and see others grow better as a student! I hope that as your tutor, I can help you be a more confident, successful student!... I am someone who really believes in group studies, but I am someone who does not resort to that as my only option. I like to spend the day before my test to study by myself. For subjects like Spanish and science, I feel that making quizzes are essential for my success, because it motivates me to be able to go through all the flashcards so many times that I can define each term almost immediately after I see it. In addition, for subjects like math, I love to make formula sheets for each chapter, because not only will it be beneficial for my test, but it will also be very helpful when compiling all my notes for the final!

...is why, for instance, so many students ask their math teachers, "When am I ever going to need this?" But the value of learning complex math, beyond its inherent beauty, is that students learn problem solving skills. Large, seemingly intractable problems can be reduced to several smaller, more manageable problems. This is true of differential equations, and it is true of getting a job. Find an opening. Write a resume. Write a cover letter. Go...

I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in Math and Science. I have an informal, friendly teaching style.

I am qualified to tutor all subjects, but my strongest area is English.
