About me: I am 24 years old, male, and a resident of New York City. I graduated from the City College of New York, in June 2016, with a B.A. in Psychology and double minors in English and French. Currently I am considering graduate programs/career paths in Psychology.
I have superb skills in the English language, and in all important language areas such as reading, writing, editing, grammar, etc. I love to help people improve their lives, overcome personal challenges, learn new skills, etc. and can tutor/teach English to people of all ages and education levels.
I work best one-on-one (although I can work in small groups too, if necessary). I like focusing completely on an individual, understanding his strengths and weaknesses, and then working together with him/her to accomplish his unique goals. I like making sure my students understand the material fully and completely. I am interested in 1 hour sessions, although, I can increase the time if it is needed.
I am a great listener, and I like fully "connecting" with a person. I have strong attention to details, and I give my best in all kinds of tasks. Helping other people gives acts as intrinsic motivation for me, and I like to contribute my efforts and energy to make the world a better place.
I have not yet conducted lessons formally, only informally. I have taught friends in French and in English, usually in college, and usually one-on-one or in groups of two people. They have all reported they liked my teaching style, understood and fully "absorbed" the lessons taught, and improved as a result of my efforts. This has always pleased me.
Even though I am considering pursuing the Psychology career path, teaching, education and learning are fields that greatly appeal to me, and in case Psychology does not work out, for any reason, I am strongly thinking of heading the teaching route. It pleases me greatly to pass on the knowledge or skills I myself have accumulated, over my 24 years of life, to others, and help them achieve success.
Ever since I was a child, Zuhair has taken care of me as my older brother. By reading to me and simplifying many complex concepts so that I would be able to understand them better at my young age, he instilled in me a love of reading that exists to this day. In turn, this inspired me to explore subjects such as astronomy, literature, biology etc. through reading books, with the help of a mentor available whenever I needed it. I believe that this is one of the most fundamental qualities of a teacher: to be able to inspire in his student a love of the subject material and a desire to learn more, rather than simply shove information down their throat. I am able to say, with full confidence that Zuhair possesses this quality in ample amounts and this is what makes him a trustworthy and reliable teacher.
