I am passionate about teaching. One of my targets in life is to help people form a deep understanding of the subjects I teach. The mental pleasure people get when they fully digest a topic is incredible. Usually, I form a mental connection with my students, which makes it easy for us to communicate on a deeper academic level. My top 1 priority is to satisfy my students' academic and mental needs. My sessions are always easy to attend, and I do my best to create a positive, friendly, and safe atmosphere for my students to learn, reflect, and achieve their goals.
In general, I enjoy teaching because it satisfies my obligations to the community. At the end of the semester, when the grades are out, I experience my favorite periods of the year because then I can see the apparent, tangible effect I had on my students. In addition, I perceive teaching as a gift I am granted to make things better. While I am holding a session, I see a chance to apply each teaching strategy or each motivational word I wish I had experienced with my teachers and professors, but I did not. Thanks to teaching, I can now learn from my previous experiences as a student and try to spare part of the new generation of students the bad experiences they might have faced. Moreover, I am an extrovert person who replenishes my energy by being around people. As a tutor, I am constantly surrounded by my students in an environment that keeps me continuously active, motivated, and effective.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My first step is to introduce myself to the student and get to know him/her. After that, I try to active-listen to the student's needs and what exactly they expect from me. Then, I ask the student a few questions with the aim of locating the student's level of excellence in the subject matter to get a rough estimate for where I should start. After determining the student's level of excellence, I breakdown the big task which we need to achieve into smaller, easy-to-handle sub-tasks. Then, I inform the student with the next few sub-tasks on the timeline so that they are kept motivated and focused. Finally, we start working towards our first task.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a 5-year experience of tutoring. I am a certified tutor from Benha University in Egypt for teaching high-school math and physics. I worked as a teaching assistant in the American University in Cairo for one year. I, also, worked as an online tutor through several online platforms. Additionally, I worked as a volunteer tutor for two years.
