Teacher/tutor with over 12 years of experience helps students online with their homework, assignments, and test preparation.

Methodology

I am proactive, energetic, I thoroughly plan my teaching. I create long and short-term plans or one-time lessons. I have a master's degree in epidemiology and biostatistics. I promote a learning environment where students feel confident and happy. I focus on visuals and main ideas. A typical lesson would be divided into several parts; a quick revision, the main lesson, an application, and a summarization. After each lesson I provide students with additional material if they wish to review on their own, I email any work we did together and provide links to videos related to the lesson.

Perfect! Alaa is a teacher at heart and genuinely cares about her students and their success. She is flexible in her approach and tailors her sessions to her students personality.

Alaa's response

I love working with Suzie-we had an immediate connection. She's such a dedicated and caring mother. When Suzie contacted me to tutor her boys I accepted eight away because I knew we'd get along well.

D
Debbie

Perfect! Methodology and skill in explaining concepts were excellent! Alaa was very professional and prepared her tutoring sessions ahead of time. She was conscientious and not only detected errors in comprehension, but she identified my daughter's strengths giving her confidence to tackle math problems herself. My daughter quickly became comfortable working with Alaa and has asked to have future sessions with her. We are very satisfied! Thank you Alaa!

Alaa's response

Debbie hired me to teach her daughter claire. Claire was polite, serious, and hard working.

Alaa's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Alaa — I just love anything related to science, I enjoy the thinking process, the adventure of learning something new, and the passion for exploring new ideas. I studied epidemiology and biostatistics which was a perfect domain for me because I loved to learn about biology as well as math.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Alaa — I had a curiosity since I was young, I wanted to know how everything works. I finally found answers in the scientific domain. I felt like I belonged in the scientific community. I love teaching anything related to science because I can show the students the value of what they're learning. I can show them how it relates to daily life and how it can benefit them.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Alaa — I love tutoring because of the feedback I get. It is so fulfilling when a student thanks you from the bottom of their heart and tells me that I've been a great help. Teaching comes naturally for me, I understand the learning style of my student right away and I custom make lesson plans to help them reach their goals. I am a superprof because I am at the top of my field, I preplan, and I am proactive.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.
Alaa — I had a professor in my third year of university when I was doing my bachelor's degree in biology. He was harsh, strict, and moody. I knew that's exactly what I didn't want to be when I became a teacher.
But, I loved him because he was a genius in his field. So I ventured out to combine being kind, sympathetic, understanding, while at the same time being an expert in the material I'm teaching. I visit him from time to time and let him know he was the reason I became involved in the academic and teaching field.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Alaa — I work from my heart, out of passion. I am not financially motivated. The students can tell right away that I actually care about them, their learning journey, and their results. I feel like I make a great tutor because I can adjust my teaching depending on the student's learning style. I'm also very organized, punctual, and professional. From the first lesson students know they're getting the best of the best, and they appreciate that. People who hire tutors are investing in themselves and they want to feel like they're getting value for their money- and I deliver.
