Epidemiologist loves teaching students, with over 11 years experience, makes the most difficult lessons easy to understand.

Methodology

What students love about my style is that I can simplify difficult concepts, make them easy to understand and retain. In one hour I can cover more material and allow you to truly comprehend it than you could have imagined possible.
My style includes asking lots of questions, letting the student develop his/her own thinking strategies. Students appreciate the visuals I provide them with, including concept maps, diagrams, and simple drawings, which can be more effective than long tedious text.
My lesson is divided into sections, which can maximize the learning benefits for you. We start with a revision from the last session, we move onto the content of the new lesson, then we may watch a short video about it, after which we'll solve practice questions, and finally, we sum up what we did during the period.
I will email you any soft copies of notes we take, questions we solve, or links to videos we watch.
I thoughtfully plan a lesson beforehand and no time is wasted.

Background

I have a master's degree in epidemiology, a BS degree in biology, and have been teaching for over 11 years. I have experience teaching grades 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12. I have given tutoring lessons in SATS to university-level students and have taught adults. I've instructed science, biology, math, chemistry, and English.
I'm energetic, I love my profession, and I teach from the heart. I love having a good laugh and not taking things too seriously. Students feel comfortable with me asking any question they want. I also have experience teaching in different countries, cultures, and curricula.
For the past two years I've been teaching online, I know my way very well around computers, technology, and software for e-learning. You will really feel like you're getting maximum value for your buck!

Mrs.Alaa is very successful in her way of teaching. I’ve been learning biology with her since 7th grade and im in 12th grade now and all I can say is how excellent her teaching skills are both online and in person.

R
Reem

It is my pleasure to strongly recommend Mrs.Alaa as a Biology teacher, since I've known her for 7 years already. Not just the way she teaches is amazing, it is also a joy to work with her. She made us feel that online classes are the same as in person classes as she managed to keep everything comfortable for all of us.

Alaa is the best online tutor you'll come across. She's knowledgeable, dedicated, patient, and trustworthy. She has taught me for over 3 years now, and I can say she's the only teacher that makes me understand so well, I never forget the material. Her style is dynamic. What makes Alaa stand out is that she plans her lessons very well, she doesn't waste time, and always has the best interested of her students in mind.
