I recently graduated from Northeastern University with a BS in mechanical engineering and a minor in Math.

Math and engineering are two fields that get me excited, and I like to share the excitement with my students. I have been working as math tutor for the past 6 years at a community college. I have taught all levels of math starting from algebra all the way to differential equations and linear algebra.

I work well with different types of students as well as adapt to different learning styles. I have helped most student improve their grades and get through with their math classes.

In addition to my math skills, I can speak, read, and write Arabic and French. I can certainly help those who need to improve their language skills in both languages.

What is your teaching philosophy?

"Engineer a learning experience that puts students in the driver's seat, and then get out of the way."

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Get to you know them. Ask about what is challenging them and what they want to learn.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By letting them take the lead and having them decide how to approach a problem. Ask them what they would do if I wasn't there.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Set goals, work step by step towards achieving those goals. Use the power of positive thinking and believing in yourself. Share personal motivation experiences.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would have them explain to me their understanding of the concept, and maybe use a different teaching style if necessary.
