About me

I`ve been providing one on one tuition to students of all ages and abilities since 2015. I am fascinated by the English language, and firmly believe that both teaching and learning are closely intersecting paths of discovery. As such, I tailor every lesson to each students` needs and take great satisfaction in building a lasting relationship, in which learning is enjoyable and challenges are made less daunting. During the week, I work as a full-time Data Analyst for M&C Saatchi, a world-leading advertising and communications agency based in Soho, London. Here, a multitude of skills are continuously tested: problem solving within highly demanding contexts, logical processes, effective communication, report writing, and translating (Arabic-English). Despite the above, I love to teach during my spare time - it`s a passion I never want to lose.
