Personal Description:
I am a native Arabic speaker from Jordan. I have a PhD in Arabic Language and Literature and three years of experience in teaching Arabic as an additional language. I teach Modern Standard Arabic, old Classical Arabic ( Quranic Arabic) and spoken Arabic ( Levantine and Gulf).

Teaching Experience:

Three years of experience in teaching Arabic as an additional language

Tutoring Approach:

As a teacher of Arabic language, I believed once in the 'myth' which says Arabic is a difficult language to learn. However, after more than two years of experience in teaching, I am confident that Arabic is easier than many languages including English. This belief has rooted through experience in teaching Arabic to students from beginners to advanced levels. Arabic is a very mathematical language. It depends on logic in all its aspects. It has rigid writing and pronunciation systems.

Personal Description:
From an early age I have had a passionate interest in singing and have gained grade 1-8. I have sung in a variety of classical contexts and have performed in choirs and operas as a Soloist.
In addition to this I have a love of travelling and have worked on a kibbutz in Israel which was very interesting and character forming.
As part of my work in schools I have travelled to Greece as part of a teacher development programme. This involved trips with colleagues where research was carried out on the Acropolis and the Minoan Civilisation and have fed this in to my own development as a Teacher of History.
I have also been part of a range of school trips; Battlefields in France, Rome and London to name some of the more high profile visits.
Generally, I enjoy exercising, particularly swimming and walking, I have a love of good food and wine and relish socialising. I also enjoy literature both classical and modern.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching History for nearly eighteen years both in UK Secondary Schools and in Private International Schools abroad. I have a real passion for teaching and have been praised by Ofsted, parents and students for my enthusiasm, commitment and very high examination results.
My career began in Cornwall in the late 1990's in a wonderful rural setting with a great deal of local History. i spent seven years teaching there and I had over eighty percent of the students choosing History as a GCSE option.
I was very fortunate to teach in a very prestigious private school abroad and managed to raise the level of interest in History as a GCSE option significantly and achieved amazing results in both schools.
I also have a great deal of experience of teaching GCSE English and English as a Foreign Language both in the UK and overseas.
After eighteen years my love for teaching has never ceased and I hope to engage more students and create a real passion for History for many more years to come.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring varies a great deal from student to student depending on their level and ability.
I always show a very supportive and flexible approach if needed and a firmer style if examinations are approaching. Students always feel secure and enjoy our lessons together and always achieve a pleasing result.
I have also taught a great deal of English to Second Language students especially when I taught in Greece and Cyprus and was amazed how quickly they could improve with one to one tuition.
I am available to teach in the evenings and over the Summer holidays as well

Personal Description:
I have got Engineering degree qualification, which makes me the most appropriate tutor for mathematics subject. I have studied as well trained the simplest mathematics as well as complex one. So, I know the subject's concepts, ideas and problems inside out. I can discuss and introduce the rigor of real-life applications. I can make learning relevant to students' interests, thus create more students who actually care about what they are learning

Teaching Experience:

I have got a 10 years of teaching Experience. I have been teaching maths since at all Level since 10 years. Currently i have been teaching A-Level, year 4, KS-2 maths in UK.
I am very much aware of National Curriculum of UK and know about the key stages and the assessments, the student would go through after completing each key stage. I always prefer to discuss child's progress with his/her parents by the end of each assessment. That would assist me to meet the expectations of parents.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to build strong, personal relationships with students, because I believe personal relationship is foundation to student success. The more associated the student feels, the more teacher earns respect and consideration, the key ingredients for students to learn well. I teach to the student's strength that helps me to minimize the student weaknesses. I always listen and communicate early and often with parents, that helps me to map a better plan for success.
I always believe that, the better lesson planning by tutor leads to student success. I always plan my every session keeping these 6 points in my mind.
1. Outline learning objectives
2. Develop the introduction
3. Plan the specific learning activities (the main body of the lesson)
4. Plan to check for understanding
5. Develop a conclusion
6. Create a practical timeline
